Hello guys.

This is a kinda serious vent post so don’t read it if you don’t wanna hear me ramble about stuff that’s been bothering me.


As you all know I love posting dumb submissions here on Newgrounds, but sometimes I have the paranoid feeling of a lot of people disliking me for making stuff that’s admittedly kinda cringe sometimes. I mean sure it may seem like it but I am not a little kid doing dumb bullshit on the internet, I am a stupid guy trying to live his life and share his odd humor with his friends here on NG.


For those who dislike me for who I am or what I create:

(Check out the bold text in the section “Long Story Short” if you do legitimately dislike me.)


I am sorry if some of the stuff I make is not your thing sometimes. The reason I make a lot of weird submissions is simply because I may find it funny, or more commonly I am talking to a good friend of mine and we start joking which leads to me making something really stupid. One example being “In loving memory of shrek…” which is just an obnoxious game where you control shrek going through a maze whilst constantly changing sizes which is really annoying. I occasionally make things that others find to be really dumb, pointless, and shitty. But most of my submissions (if not all) are nothing but jokes that no one except for me and my friends get. But I constantly get the feeling that people hate my guts and it makes me feel terrible. This is one of the reasons I’ve slowed down ever since Money Man, and even I don’t think that game is good. But trust me, eventually in the future once I’m out of what I call the “Learning Phase” in which I am currently in I will try my best to make much more enjoyable and fun games and/or animations that everyone will like, just give me some time to learn how to do things, but in the meantime I will be making these really dumb submissions until I can finally make something really cool, just be patient!


To those who support my work and love what I make:


Please, please tell me if you like the content I create or not cause I feel down about it sometimes and I am beginning to consider quitting or just changing everything about me completely. But if you do like what I make, I really can’t appreciate it enough, but I have one thing I’d like to mention, I don’t like the following I have on this site. I feel as if there are so much more talented people other than me that deserve what I have. I just don’t think I deserve the amount of support I get for my low quality work. Whilst yes it’s kinda my style I just think that it’s really dumb… I do appreciate all 1k of you but I wish that you’d support some other talented creators that can do what I do except better. Thing is, I don’t want you to take this the wrong way either cause I love all of you and I hope that you stick around for my future creations. So hopefully you all understand why I feel this way.


Long story short:


I feel misunderstood and like people hate me for being myself sometimes and I feel like I might wanna quit. Although the stuff I make is dumb it’s just me practicing to get better, slowly but surely I plan on making really cool content for everyone to enjoy. But in the meantime I’ll continue to make what I make and do what I do for now and do what I enjoy along with collaborating with friends to make some neat stuff. I encourage those who do dislike me to reach out to me on here or on Discord about it, I won’t get mad I’d just like to see your perspective. And to my friends and fans, I love all of you guys and I hope that you have a great day/night, take care! <3 <3 <3


(Since I am tired and this may be all over the place, feel free to contact me if I said something odd or if you are confused about something.)

1,000 Fans!!!


Y'all are crazy asf, thank you so much for helping me get as far as I did, I am kinda speechless as this is quite a huge milestone for me. Whilst yes it may be a big number it's not about the number itself, its about what the number represents, all of you being there to encourge and support what I like to do and I cannot appriciate it enough!


I am not going to be changing the way I do things around here and I will continue to post my dumb bullshit whether you like it or not for as long as I live. I remember joining Newgrounds on this account back in 2020 with just 0 fans but ever since then I've had an amazing time with the community we have here, and NG has in a way changed my life for the better. Newgrounds is my favorite site to make and post all my projects to browse and interact with the great community. The collabs here are super fun and even if I am not apart of one, very fun to watch! Overall I have had a great time here and I thank all of you for it! :3 <3<3<3

Concerns regarding the Handsome Squidward Collab.


Hey it’s Ant here, so there are many concerns regarding the Handsome Squidward Collab that @beeni was hosting for a while. The collab stressed him out a ton so he decided to cancel it although he did upload all the finished scenes here.


Didn’t get credit for your animations?


But some people didn’t get their scene in there since he kinda slipped up and didn’t put all the scenes in there so I’m just trying to collect all of the scenes that are missing on there so I can edit them in and credit you, so if you made a scene and want credit for the animations [THIS INCLUDES WIP ANIMATIONS TOO] you made for the collab PM them to me on here or hmu on discord! (Ant#1060)


What the hell happened!?


Like I had previously mentioned the collab was canceled because @beeni was overwhelmed and stressed and he ended up just deleting the server and whatnot but if you have any questions please go ahead and ask below I’ll be sure to answer all of them. I am really sorry to those who didn’t get their chance to make something for it but I hope y’all have a great day!

It's been quite an eventful day...


800 Fanz!!! :D

You guys are legit insane, I have been growing wayyyyy too fast. The support y'all have given me over the past few months has been absolutely ridiculous man. I am honestly quite overwhelmed atm so imma probably take a lil break from game dev stuff unless i have a strong urge to make more shit. I cannot thank you guys enough for all of this though, so thank you all for everything it means so much to me, it really does... :']


Money Man


iu_352465_8032377.png



So basically I'm shocked and kinda freaked out about how well Money Man did, seem that you guys enjoyed it a ton despite it's flaws. So yeah Money Man has been an idea ever since I found out abt "GM Golf Challenge" a game by Jazzuo. The sprites are from that game and I do not want to take credit for them. I kinda just started it as a way for me to practice making a simple platformer. After a while of programming I completely lost my motivation and right at the end of development as well. Recently I decided to fucking power through it and upload it just to see it immediately pass judgment and get the Daily Feature & it got Frontpaged like wtf. That's inane guys! I never really thought much of the game and i was never proud of it till now. Thank you guys so much for the tremendous amount of support, I really mean it!


Other news...


idk lol stuffs been nice that's pretty much it lololol


HAVE A NICE FUCKING DAY ILY GUYS <3 <3 <3 :D
