Krinkels's News

Posted by Krinkels - 1 day ago


All these damn rooms, all these damn agents! Screenshot from Madness 9.5.2. Not a whole lot to report on the front of animation creation, fellas, except that it feels faster. Typically I worked on animations at home but as of late I been putting in the hours at the computer where I work on MPN, and what's a couple more hours at this station? It beats coming home and trying to fold animation into my home life routines, the rate I work doing that is very uneven.


Any rate, moving fast, lots of kills, not sure where this cartoon is going right now but I am certain about how it's going to end! I feel as though you do, too! It will be fun to have this actualize.

This year's gonna be a cool year. I don't really have a lot to say, not for secrecy's sake, but how many times can I say "I sure am working a lot" while keeping it interesting? Project Nexus's Arena Mode is turning into more fun than the campaign, MC9.5.2 is moving much quicker now that I got a handful of false starts out from under me, and I'm gonna draw more for my Etsy store;

Thanks for the support, homies. What kind of mountains will you be conquering in 2021?

Not much to report on, on the animation front. I am working on MC9.5 pt 2, and as I chewed into the animation I took a second to re-evaluate the 'arc' of it and wound up once again throwing out all my ideas and doing them again as I go, true to form.

Thanks for paying attention for so long, it means the world to me.


As for Project Nexus, well, you know I'm banging on that old drum of a project on the daily... If you haven't checked out the playable demo, go give the steam page a look!

MADNESS DAY 2020 has come and gone, and in it's wake we've seen a tremendous amount of animation, artwork, and music hit the portal. I'm floored by the turnout. Having seen Madness become somewhat tired over the last decade, I was excited to see that this whole year isn't just a shot in the arm to the fandom, it knocked the damn limb off! We've seem some of the best stuff come out of the fandom in the last week, not even speaking with hyperbole or exaggeration. That said deciding the winners for this Madness Day was a grueling affair the likes of which caused me legitimate psychic torment. I want to preface all this by saying I'm stunned by the participation and every single one of you deserves a goddamn medal.

Here we are, a month away from Madness Day 2020 here on Newgrounds! September 22nd will mark the 14th (!!!) Madness Day celebrated on this site, and every one of them has been a tremendous show of force by the community. What's been incredible is that the enthusiasm remains after all this time, and this year we're going to try upping the ante with a prize pool for top entries submitted for Madness Day this year!


Paypal allows for a pooling of cash from donations and we're going to feed that 100% back into prizes. No 'admin' costs or whatever cutting into that.

PAYPAL PRIZE POOL

We're counting submissions with 'madness day 2020' tag! The distribution of prize cash will be as follows:


EDIT; Incredible! The prize pool has pushed past 1200 dollars before we even got to September! I'm going to adjust these percentages.

EDIT v2 (9/4); DOUBLE INCREDIBLE. We're at $1661.90!!! I've readjusted the prizes to fit this enormous influx.

EDIT v3 (9/15); UPDATE; POOL ENDS MIDNIGHT OF MADNESS DAY. WE'VE ACCUMULATED SO MUCH DOSH THAT RUNNING IT PAST THAT SEEMS GRATUITOUS) Pool total $1,716.90


EDIT V5 (9/24): THIS MADNESS DAY WAS NOTHING SHORT OF MIND BLOWING. I was consistently amazed by how much you guys brought out your A game, my head is spinning. I have no idea how to pick the top entries this year, but I'm gonna do it. It's gonna feel like having 100 kids, and executing 90 of them in favor of your 'favorites'. It's gonna be brutal, but don't forget I love every last iota of energy spent towards the madness. POOL TOTAL $1816.90


Animation: 

1st - $400

2nd - $250

3rd - $150

4th - $100

5th - $65

6th - $50

7th - $35


Art:

1st - $200

2nd - $125

3rd - $100

4th - $75

5th - $25

6th - $25


Music:

1st - $100

2nd - $50

3rd - $25

4th - $25


total; 1800 (remainder under 25 to be thrown on the top of animation 1st place. further 25s will generate additional individual winners)


(Going to add more slots yet if more cash comes in, as well as an extra slot for the change. All this depends on the validity of the pledges.)


If we wind up pooling a huge amount of cash we'll squeeze in 4th and 5th places, and include entries for music, as well, by distributing the percentages downward a bit to include more people! I'm optimistic about how much we can raise for this!


I'll be adding to this pool myself, too. I've tossed in 200 bucks, and as I stream on twitch those donations will be put into the pool.


This is also a good time to announce I've put together an Etsy store! It's very small, right now. Only a tiny shred of my total body of artwork is worthy of prints and I've selected a few of them to sell. Right up until madness day, for every print I sell there I'll put six bucks into the prize pool!

MY LIL ETSY STORE!

Hey there guys, how's it going? I hope your projects are doing well and making progress, I'm hype for the upcoming Madness Day (September 22) this year because it's going to be yet another time when ya'll knock it out of the park, and I can't wait to see it. This time around I should have a cartoon ready for your consumption, part one of Madness 9.5. I just crested 4k frames so it's not insubstantial, but it's my goal to get as much of it done so we can have a decent enough first half of this one to chew on while I bang out the next.


iu_133822_1534.jpg


Other stuff I have coming down the pipe:

TEAM FABULOUS 2 reanimated collab! I was lucky enough to get myself involved in this massive undertaking and have finished up my segment, it's going to be released July 6th, VERY SOON, VERY COOL.


Getting some prints for sale together, too. Some of the art I've been creating lately should make for a nice wallhanger if you're so inclined. Setting up an etsy shop for that before long. Also going to be ready and operating in July.


Keeping up with the twitch streaming! Just making art when I can and playing through games like Black Mesa or whatever flavor of the month horror game crosses my desk. Should be giggles!


PROJECT NEXUS Oh this big bastard of a project is finally starting to look like it's got some -real- legs under it. We're going to be issuing an opt-in beta for the story mode revamp soon. Opt in because it will be bereft of arena and playground and we wanted that option to still be available to you. There's been so many updates, tweaks and outright changes to the game that it feels less like a jank indie project and more of a sleek shooterbrawler. We're excited to get it into the testers hands, one step closer to 1.0 ever damn day. Your patience with us has been phenomenal.


Any rate, I don't have much to say other than I'm keeping busy, moving forward, and am in a cosntant state of awe that ya'll'd support me through this. We're gonna make it.

Things in the works, coming down the pipe;


(DONE) That short where the dude loses his face - effectively completed, waiting on some audio work to come back.


Madness Combat 9.5 - ~2k frames completed. Main focus of my time in flash is spent on this. This cartoon will be completed this year. Update; two minutes? wtf kinda clown shoes operation am I running here? Hustle, HUSTLE!


(DONE) Team Fabulous 2 Re-Animated - I'm a lucky guy in that I've gotten myself aboard the re-animated collab centered around kitty0607's Team Fabulous 2. The due date on that animation is May 14th and I'm on track to having that completed on time.


Madness: Project Nexus 2 - The coronavirus can't stop us. More and more of my time is spent testing things and working on post launch media, while he hacks away at the code and making the damn thing playable. It's a process, and we've gone far beyond the scope of simple indie game. Thanks for bearing with us, fellas and fellettes, you're amazing for sticking around.

Hey there, followers! I thought was it prudent to update you on the projects I have in the works, so you can sort of get a feel for what to expect from me in the coming months, but screw that I'm just going straight for the self promotional advert.


So listen, this whole lockdown is really straining the financial situation here at Team Madness, and in order to keep the lights on and bellies fed I've decided to start an onlyfans! Your typical onlyfans account caters to the 18 and up crowd, but considering it's me, I'm only going to let in those 29 and older (verified with an accompanying credit score of over 710). It'll help cultivate an environment of exclusivity and private access that will enrich value, synergy and Actionable Analytics. I know for a fact that this is the best use of my (and your) time! Thank you for your continued support through these challenging times. Click here to subscribe to my onlyfans!

well would you look at that. I remember registering this account from my work. I didn't have cable/dsl at the house at the time so I did all my internet nonsense from there. Hell, checking newgrounds was part of my routine after I clocked in, so naturally when the automated portal came about, along with account registration I had to jump on that. When the portal went from a small collection of cartoons to a constantly expanding culture of entertainment it was abso-fucking-lutely mind blowing. I don't even remember how I got my hands on a pirate copy of Flash 5, but I did, compelled to heave in contributions to something that entertained me so thoroughly. Thanks for having me, guys. Heres to another 20.
