Hi there! In case you didn't know, I created newgrounds. No, it wasn't made by some giant company - just some dumb kid. I also co-founded the Behemoth; we made Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Icon by JohnnyUtah, banner by Pegosho.

Saminat was asking me about the time I was in The Toxic Avenger IV and I got curious to dig up some pictures. I found a bunch that I don't think I ever posted in the NG history and the blog editor is a handy way to share them all... This was back in 1999, the original story is here.

Pictures from day of filming at the Playboy Mansion:





That's about it.

I was in San Diego last week to do a bunch of Behemoth stuff but while I was there I also did a one hour stream on Twitch.tv where I played Castle Crashers with fans and told some never-before-heard stories about the development of CC. I probably should have given a heads up about it here on NG but I was self-conscious about how it would turn out. I did tweet about it through so if you follow my on Twitter you have a better chance of not missing stuff. Also follow the Behemoth on Twitter, Youtube and Twitch!

If you want to watch me tell stories about Castle Crashers while getting my ass handed to me and struggling with on-line match-making, watch this video:

If you play WarFrame, Marvel Heroes or D&D: Neverwinter, I have a promo code for $75 In-Game Credit that came with my new video card.

Reply to this blog and let me know which one you play. I'll randomly pick one of you and PM you the redemption info! I'll update this post to let everyone know when it's too late to enter.

Working on an end of year post right now so expect that up on FP today too!

UPDATE: Was tempting to give people more time but decided to just call it. I was feelin' the posts by Cairos and CooliSushi the most, so I flipped a coin between them - heads was CooliSushi and tails was Cairos. It flipped heads, so CooliSushi scored the promo code!

Then I felt bad so I gave Cairos $25 store credit so he can browse NG without ads if he wants to snag a supporter badge. Also sorry to the rest of you who got nothing but thanks for playing!

I'm making this post with our new rich text editor for blogs! You guys don't have access to this YET but should in a few minutes. UPDATE: You can now do this too!

I'll make a fancier post later but for now, here is Jazza's monthly challenge for December:

You can do multiple embeds and multiple images now! I'm really excited to start dev blogging the game I'm working on with JohnnyUtah but we haven't officially announced it yet.

If you've ever been curious what our internal documentation looks like, here's some courtesy PsychoGoldfish.

The sharewith class is used to manage what activities a user will auto-share with other users. Users can choose to share certain types of events with everyone, or limit it to users on their friends list, or straight up don’t share so nobody knows they are jacking off to Shadman art all day.

The suitability class is used as a global content filter. It will be used to mark what content ratings you will allow to be shared in your activity feed. This way you can do stuff like share your voting habits and medal unlocks without people seeing the shameful furry porn you gave a 5 or the dress up game you got 10 medals on within 3 minutes.

So our workers' compensation insurance policy renewal arrived today. Workers' compensation insurance is required for businesses, btw.

It included a notice to policy owners about the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, so I decided to read it.

Insurance companies are required by the government to include terrorism insurance as part of the workers' comp policy we are required to buy. Terrorism Insurance adds $188 to the annual cost.

For the insurance company to pay, there needs to be a "certified act of terrorism", which must be certified by the Secretary of the Treasury in concurrence with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General of the United States, based on a number of criteria including aggregate expenses in excess of $5 million dollars.

If someone blew up the Newgrounds office, this insurance does not cover the damage to our building - that would be covered by the terrorism clause of our property insurance.

However, if someone in the office lost their arms in the explosion and could no longer do their job, that would potentially be covered by this insurance.

Unfortunately, if someone blew up the Newgrounds office, it would not cause damage in excess of $5 million dollars, so the Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of State and the Attorney General might not certify it as an act of terrorism, in which case our workers' compensation policy would not apply.

However, if we went to a convention and someone blew up the convention center and one of us lost our arms, this policy would likely cover that.

Just thought I'd share.
