Hey guyssss, I just wanted to quickly get in a Pico Day post
This website is awesome. I always use to visit as a kid, but I never dreamed I'd ever actually be a semi-popular content creator on here...
The Newgrounds community continually inspires me. Even after I finish university and become a proper adult with responsibilities and all that, I think I'll always create content here. I just love expressing myself in unique ways I couldn't do anywhere else- that's something truly unique to Newgrounds
I think that's what this place is really - a collection of artists. Some young, some old. Some light, others not so much. The thing that binds us, I think, is our desire to create, even if we suck at first
My favourite content creators here are Yotam and RaziBerry. Their content is so funny, but they always have layers of depth and insight. That's something I really aspire to do
And the whole audio portal. Your music is all so beautiful and creative...that's a skill I really admire.
This is probs a good opportunity to quickly thank everyone who continues to check out my thingies. I've evolved a lot since I started, I make stuff now that, while not as polished, is way more "me." Goofy, but sad sometimes. Crazy, but maybe a little tiny bit introspective and thoughtful. I think making this kind of stuff is important, rather than just throw away tower defences and stuff like that you see on other websites
I don't think Newgrounds will ever go away. People play stuff here, I think, for the same reason that people watch videos on YouTube. They get a sense of the creator, and get to experience more raw ideas that might not otherwise exist
Thank you to Newgrounds, thank you to my fellow creators, and thank you to you reading this; for giving us an audience to make our weird shit
Anyway. Back to making meme-grade content
Happy Pico Day!
