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

Nightmare Cops at Comic-Con!

Posted by TomFulp - June 20th, 2017

Heads up, I'll be at San Diego Comic-Con next month, showing Nightmare Cops at the Behemoth booth (Booth 229).

Nightmare Cops is the game I've been working on for the past five years with @JohnnyUtah and @Spazkid, along with @Oney on music. It's gonna be a Newgrounds release for console / Steam... SOME DAY! It's by far the biggest project any of us have ever undertaken but it will be worth it.


We've been pretty quiet about it because people seem to get exhausted with games that hype too soon and then have a many-year dev cycle. It's a delicate balance between wanting publicity but wanting to feel FRESH when we launch. Comic-Con is the first time anyone outside of the Newgrounds office will be taking NC for a spin.

Comic-Con is Thursday, July 20th thru Sunday, July 23rd!

nice Tom but i dont even live in America. but hopefully by next year i will come on holiday so i can see you (maybe)

Most Americans won't even be able to make it to Comic-Con, it sells out pretty quick nowadays. On the plus side, NC will be available everywhere when it finally comes out!

Looking forward to this game Tom.

We'll definitely have some sort of local event before launch so you'll have to come by and play!

fuck now i want to go to Comic-con. No other game/movie has made me feel this way before

Now if we can just get a few million more people to feel that way before launch!

Holy Shizzle

Tom you tease! I wish I could go to Comic-Con dangit.

5 years oh dang, how long did Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid take to make?

Alien Hominid took 15 months and Castle Crashers took three years. This game is a beast, there is a lot to see and do.

Niice, I'm really looking forward to it!! (after getting a lot more involved into game develpment, I completely get the 'SOME DAY' bit...)

All that pink looks gorgeous !!
Will ppl who are outside the US and cant ever get to SDCC see a trailer or anything??

We might put a trailer together after Comic-Con. That's part of the question of how soon we should be hyping it if it will still be in production for a good while.

From what I played so far at Pico Day, this game is being set up as one of my favorite games of the past 5 years, maybe 10. Jeff's style just meshes so well with gaming that it's a wonder why he didn't try and create a game before.

I know this may be a little bit too early to ask this, but will there be merch sold alongside the game when it's finished, like a complete OST, or a t-shirt/statues ALA Castle Crashers?

Can't wait to play the final product, Tom!

No merch in the works at the moment but I'm sure there will be some shirts some day and stuff like posters / OST etc. is all possible. For now we're just focused on getting closer to the finish line.

So, what's the synopsis of the game?

You're cops who fight peoples' nightmares!

Looks great, Tom. Looking forward to it.

Pretty great news! Maybe you'll be able to release it next year if things goes well!

Man that would be AMAZING but very unlikely. My entire future hinges on getting this out there though, though.

Oh my god yes!!! Sooner than we expected!!! :D Grats Tom! I'm glad Behemoth is backing this to help it get out there! I loved playing the demo! Wish I was there to play the update. Keep on keeping :) I hope it gets finished soon.

It's still gonna be in development for a good while but we're getting there!

what about a Pico Game on Steam !

I've been keeping that on the bucket list.

Oh goodie! Looking forward.

Thanks! How are things going with TSIOQUE?

Now I'm really sad that I missed out on tickets for the show. :(

You snooze you loooooze!

Ohh man can't wait for this! I loved what I got to play at P-Day, can't wait to see how much the game has evolved since. Best O luck to you folk getting this game finished up!

Thanks! Are you gonna be at Comic-Con?

Unfortunately not! I meant more in a general can't wait for this game haha. I wish i was tho!

Do you mean by the Newgrounds office?

Yeah at some point we'll have a little Nightmare Cops launch soirée or something.

Cool, I may not be able to make it, but if you guys plan on launching it on the site I'll def play it, :) Even if's it's a demo.

I feel bad for Cuphead (*~*)
I'm still hype for it...

Cuphead is beautiful and you can play both! Funny story though, Nightmare Cops started as a boss rush game but we decided it needed full levels. When Cuphead announced as a boss rush game we were like, "they're doing what we were gonna do!" but then Cuphead realized they needed levels too. We also both have top-down overworlds and characters who can shoot from their fingers, both coincidences because all of us seem to be thinking alike.
