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 FuShark.

Madness Meeting

Posted by TomFulp - May 28th, 2015


@The-Swain, @Krinkels and @MindChamber (from right to left) came by the office yesterday to discuss Madness: Project Next 2 and demo the latest build. This picture was meant to be a candid shot but Swain caught me when I flipped on extra lights.

Project Nexus 2 looks AMAZING! To make this game, Swain has become a master of Unity3D and Krinkels has turned into a 3D modeler / Blender pro. They both stepped waaaay out of their comfort zones and the results are paying off big. They've earned whatever success is coming their way!

Be sure to play the original web / Flash version of Madness: Project Nexus on NG!

Also this post feels like a total PR BS fluff piece but I wanted to give them a shout. People tend to forget you exist when you're working for years on a big project. Witness!

Wow, man this looks cool. I love seeing cool dudes making cool shit. It looks like hard work and a lot of fun.

Swain's already starting to look like a lumberjack

Why is MindChamber not a badass robot?

WOaah man. I'm glad the kickstarter paid off! I feel so bad I never chipped in. But if I ever have the cash I'll definitely buy it on steam for the full price! Really hope this will put Newgrounds back in the spotlight!

It's not officially a Newgrounds game or anything like that, although it will be further evidence that amazingly talented people come up on NG! Should also make Madness Day extra exciting.

damn, krinkles is one handsome sonubabich

I'm sure they worked really really hard to get this game in progress, and they had to start from zero to work on Unity3D and modelling, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
lol just kidding.
"Madness: Project Next 2" :P

Wow krinkel have some good muscle! Man i'm very hype for this, it look very cool. Also, what the date of the game release.

Can you buy Swain's beard on Amazon? I'd definately buy it.

hi tom fulp how was your day

My day was fine! How was yours?

Eh. I was super into Madness when it first became a thing, and more so within the first like 3-4 movies and games, but recently it's just been bleh to me. Maybe I'll check this out anyway. Sounds promising. Regardless, happy for the success :)

And he still has time to be super ripped!

hey tom, thats really nice of you to remind us of krinkels/swains/mindchambers epic game-collaboration.

its true, many people DO forget others, and especially if they ''get off the radar'', as they say....
but we shouldn't forget them.

both mindchamber, (with his epic animations and being one of the oldest/most loyal core members of NG), krinkels(creator of madness, talented animator and awesome dude overall), and the swain, (excellent animator, creator of one of the funniest cartoon series on NG, AND a really funny/nice person) are great people and talented artists, and we should never forget them or their work.

same thing goes to all the other amazing artists in here.
we must not forget you.

thanks for doing that tom, you are a really nice person, never change!

also: i hope that madness NEXUS project 2 (the 3-D one) will land on a big console, such as the XBOX or the playstation 3/4!
it deserves to go there!

i still remember when alien hominid was a ''simple'' flash game in here, and one day, i saw it on XBOX! i was so happy! i felt so proud, it felt like i was there when this happened, even tho this was clearly your work sir. but i felt happy and proud nonetheless! :)

same goes to castle-crashers, and ofcourse to the X-GEN game ''motherload''.
if it wasn't for NG, this game might have never been so popular, and/or it could be alot harder for it to reach the consoles (which it did, on PS3, after it got around 800k of views in here!)

with this in mind, listen to this: NG is the heart of a vibrant and strong artistic community!
and it will always be a legendary & friendly place for art, games and wonderfull creation everywhere!

cheers, man!

Thanks! One of the most frustrating things about big projects is having to go SO LONG without releasing something new. It was a lot of fun to release new games every few weeks / months in the past... I get tempted to do little side projects for the sake of releasing something but worry they will balloon into major distractions.

Beautiful. . . . . . :')

nice room ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
have fun at most guys.

I just hope that Krinkels doesn't forget that he has to finish Madness combat at some point.
I've been waiting years to see the outcome of the clown-absorbing explosion!

it was a fun pow-wow...Im flattered these guys still value my old decrepit opinion

awesome, hope the game turns out killer. I still need to try transitioning to 3d models, I've only dabbled.

Gosh this game is going to be so much fun, looking forward to playing it!!!

@Krinkels and @The-Swain Remember to let me know when you're ready to show it off. We can't wait to feature it on Indie Game Riot!
