Krinkels's News

Posted by Krinkels - October 18th, 2021


Alright guys. The closed doors of our juror's quarters have finally opened. After some seriously combative deliberation we've sorted out what we can safely say are our three top ten lists. We got one for Animation, one for Art, and one for Music. We had to boil these down through a dozen spreadsheets, and it was not a pleasant experience to cut down the numbers. This year blew me away, and I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling this way. I mean, we had a counted total of 158 movies, 1,003 illustrations (estimated), and 108 songs. It can't be overstated that the quality seen across this vast number holds up, which made it all the more difficult for us to forge these lists.


There's blood in these lists. There's blood on our hands. There's blood everywhere. It was a massacre. From the bottom of my heart, whether you're here to watch, create, or just be a part of it all in your own way; thank you.


TOTAL PRIZE POOL 2495 DOLLARS. I have 30 messages to send out, which I will be doing tomorrow. If you're on this list I will be reaching out to you via Newgrounds DM. HUGE THANKS to our judging panel; absoluteDETH, Enite, Isolave, Cheshyre, Hans Van Harken, Stepford, and Miss Ebola. Could not have done this alone.

The long wait is finally over. Madness: Project Nexus is now available on Steam. I'm not sure what to say. I feel like I"m at an immense lose for words. This whole thing, front to back, it's been overwhelming, multifaced, and nearly endless.... it's been a long, exhausting, educational, infuriating and incredible journey, but we're here. We have something to show for it. From the Gibbing Tree to you, we hope you love it.


Also; the judgement of Madness Day 2021 entries is going to be an arduous process. I did my best to get a count and we got something like 158 movies, 1,003 illustrations, and 108 songs. I mean look at this....

It's here! Hot damn! Okay I am holding off on watching stuff until I go up on my stream at 5pm. From there I'm going to watch for a few hours and then spend the next few days digging through the entries. If you're down to watch me check out entries you can drop by here at my twitch channel! I'll have a small handful from the judge panel there, too. They're going to help me think it through when it comes to the ranking and placements of entries this year! It's going to be difficult because you guys absolutely annihilate it every year, no joke. Thanks for supporting the madness for so long, guys.

iu_420926_1534.jpg

WATCH THE RELEASE DATE TRAILER HERE.


Second order of business:

Madness Day 2021 is coming up quick, next week! September 22nd! It's coming up fast and we have a collected paypal prize pool of $2,094.00. 100% of the pool will be given out as prizes for entries submitted on September 22nd, 2021 with the tag #MadnessDay2021! Only four more days to contribute to this pool before it closes up, so if you were planning on adding to the prize pile, sooner is better than later.


I'm forecasting a pretty wild time, come September 22nd. And this year I've assembled a panel of judges that will help me place the entries on the list. We'll even be running a stream in the afternoon of the 22nd, so you can get some live reactions as we navigate the NG Portals looking for submissions. I'm pretty excited.

HAS IT BEEN A YEAR ALREADY?! We got Madness Day 2021 coming up in one slim month, lads. This year marks the fifteenth Madness Day on Newgrounds.com. The community has kept this series alive with nothing less than incredible support and mind blowing fan artwork/animation/contributions, which that makes every Madness Day something of a massive spectacle. We're doing the prize pool thing again this year, so we'll have something to hand out to the top submissions in the categories of Animation, Artwork, and Music. Last year's Prize Pool generated an absolutely insane $1816.90. Check out the absolutely awesome line up of entries submitted last year, Madness Day 2020!


PAYPAL PRIZE POOL

No admin costs, 100% of the cash collected winds up in the pockets of the MD2021 winners. We're counting all submissions posted sept 22 with the tag "Madness Day 2021"


I've tossed in the starter cash, just to get the ball rolling on this. So we're sittin' on 200 dollars out the gate. The pool will grow, and when it does we will add placements and increase prize amounts. As it stands at this amount, the prizes are as follows;


(8/25 - Absolutely insane; We're at 2025 dollars for the prize pool!)

(9/14 - still climbing! 2092 dollars!)

Update regarding Madness Combat 9.5 part 2;

it features typing.


iu_385017_1534.png


Thanks for watching. I'll have an update regarding the upcoming Madness Day next week. I'm beyond hyped for what september 22, 2021 brings, given that last year we had one hell of a time and the turnout was incredible. A couple key points I can mention now; I want to have a small panel of judges. We're going to do the prize pool again. Another Madness Day stream is absolutely on the menu.

WORK UPDATE


Madness Combat 9.5 part 2;

I have completed this room, and have moved on to the next scene. Now, how many are left? Who knows! I like to feel these out as I go because the momentum is tough to eyeball 'til I got the keyframes out. The important thing is that progress is consistent and sizable. I could just end this in two more scene changes at the QUICKEST (one of which would be less combat oriented). Or I could string this out for another few minutes. In either event I am excited because combining this with MC9.5 part 1 is going to make for a nice and twisty toon. Behold; this mess of a room.

iu_355536_1534.webp


Madness: Project Nexus;

This is still the bulk of my working hours. Every day I'm chipping in assets that The-Swain needs to finish this behemoth. Some days its some touch ups, sometimes I'll mesh/texture in some world stuff that we didn't think we'd have time for. We recently plugged in the map Hardsell, where you're protecting a bizarre artifact from a paramilitary group that would see it destroyed. We've also slotted in the cyber bandits, the extremely mysterious bandit faction known to live in the walls of Nexus City (among other places rich in high technology). The exploding g03lm there was a legit after-thought. In either event progress on MPN is constant, and if you're interested in seeing/hearing the detailed progress of the game, consider popping into the MPN discord.

As always, thanks for the support.

YO. Hello. I'm here to report progress on the next room of 9.5 part 2. This room needs a particularly high body count, the last room was a little too 1v1 for my liking and that stuff always drags (at least when I animate it). It's my goal to get through this room asap so I can get into the next one and do it again. There's been plenty of movement and... plot lookin things so far, so this act of the cartoon needs momentum and a volume of violence. Tired of the low body counts, maybe I'm getting old and I forgot what action even is...

(spoilers; don't get too accustomed to the look of that shotgun and pistol, there)


iu_332826_1534.webp



IN OTHER NEWS; I got some shit to figure out.


I had worked with Cethic over the last couple years to round out the sprite library I animate with, but in the blistering light of things that have surfaced from the past I've elected to have their work tossed and redone. It can't be overlooked. I can't be fuckin' with that; they're tossed, door closed & bolted.


Here's a lil bit of what Fleet's been doing. They're not working to simply copy what Ceth had done but to alter and add some 'MPN' flavor to the design a little. This is an opportunity to make a slightly more distinct aesthetic.


edit; I may have to do these myself. I may be reaching out for assistance, or just making a thing of working on a handful of them at a time on twitch streams. Stay tuned; the show must go on, ect al.


iu_332827_1534.webp



Speaking of Project Nexus; man, some of these new maps are fun. How can I even say that after fucking with it for what, six years? Next update will feature yet another new Arena Mode map; The Facility. Here you'll face Nexus not as Hank and company, but as your Arena character and your supporting faction. You got this on your Steam Wishlist yet?

Thanks for stickin' around.

This one took far too long, but we piled up a bunch of bodies. (Not featured; the bodies that fell off the cliffs)

I've already gotten Cheshyre involved with the music production and Cturix is privvy to the latest renders, I will not have a repeat of last time where I held off on audio mixing until the last keyframe was laid down.
