So Pocket Emo is having a bit of a revival right now and I have no idea what's going on. If someone could fill me in how people are rediscovering Pocket Emo that'd be great because I'm horribly out of touch with... whatever it is that you guys are doing these days.

But apart from that I'm just happy that you're happy.

And apologies to the ones struggling with running the game on mobile, when it first came out most of us still had flip phones and were hanging out on MySpace while listening to VHS tapes on our Napsters.

So now that the Death of Flash is officially, finally, for real, absolutely, happening, I managed to convert all of my movies to video. For now they are only updated on MINDistortion.tv, eventually I'll update them here on Newgrounds as well.

While converting my animation swfs I was pondering what to do with my old games and to my great surprise browser-based Flash projects have made amazing progress! And even better, one of these projects is supported by Newgrounds! I'm in awe and I can't believe I wasn't aware of this until now.

Either way, I'll be gradually testing and enabling the Ruffle emulator on my old Flash games. I just did it for Zombie Squirrel Attack, for example.

I honestly considered all the old Flash content gone for good, or rather banned from the browser and doomed to a fringe existence as downloadable executables. But this, this does put a smile on my face.

So yeah, this is it. This is me releasing a shiny new game / movie after an abstinence of half a decade. I started working on it in Flash, switched to Haxe / OpenFL halfway through to finally wrap it up using JavaScript and Pixi.js. A small little something. A short game of romance and hope.

Well, kinda, sorta, possibly maybe. Let's put it like this - I redesigned MINDistortion.tv using rocket science and fairy dust instead of flash (yay!) but will still need a while until I can share something new (boo!). The good news is, there's something in the works (yay!), but, you know, sleep and work kinda get into the way (boo?). Anyways. Come and visit!

I completely revamped one of my older games (maybe one or another remembers it) and created a sequel. It's much more polished than the first one and I took a lot of NGs reviews from the previous version into account. I hope you guys will enjoy it and hopefully the medals will be approved sooner or later.

Why, hi there, NG! I didn't here you coming in? Please, have a seat.

I recently made a few charcoal sketches, so here I am, whoring them out.

They can't be hugged, loved, reveled or celebrated with. Some men just want to watch the christmas tree burn.

Merry Xmas, Newgrounds!

...and it's ending one second at a time.

After many months of comissions, life and more dedication to playing video games instead of creating some, I bring you a new little something: 60 Second Life

You have 60 Seconds from cradle to grave to get the most out of your life. How will it be?

This is your life...

A bunch of years ago I created a music video for the band Traffic Experiment. Due to a bunch of various problems (recording delays, domain hijacks...) it's released was pushed back for a long, long time, leaving it dusting away on my hard drive. This makes me all the more happier to finally be able to share it with you :)

I've been incredibly inactive the last few months/years, but now I finally managed to finish a new movie. Inspired by and featuring the wonderful song "A Strange Day" by The Cure.

And here it is.

More to come soon. Hopefully.
