Hi everyone, First of all THANKS to everyone who helped SHIFT rank NUMBER 1 ON NEWGROUNDS!
I Don't think I have to explain to any developers out there what an absolute dream come true that is. When I started flash those years ago, if you were to tell me I'd have that coveted #1 on one of my submissions I would have shown you the door.
I know of course, that nothing stays at the top forever, and the top 50 list can be a fickle place of downvoting etc, but I'm eternally happy now I've got my printscreened self made souvenir which I
shall be promptly printing out and hanging on my wall along with my handful of other NG certificates and laminated Newgrounds check (Mr. Fulps signature and note stating "Well done" Is worth way more than $250 :D*)
I'd like to thank Chris Ignatov for once again doing a great job on the graphics of SHIFT.
I would also like to thank Armor Games for employing me to do what I love, my life has been forever changed by their kindness, and theyre all a great bunch of guys.
As for the future, I'm currently working on a level editor for SHIFT so everyone can make their own puzzles in it and maybe get them included in the sequel. I'll be releasing more details soon.
*As for those of you thinking that my not spending the money awarded to me by Newgrounds is ungrateful, and means that someone else has gone without because of it, I would hereby like to declare that i will forward the $250 from my own bank account to a game author in the next month with a submission which really catches my eye innovation wise. I would like to assert that NG score will have nothing to do with the choice I make, but no doubt that a great game will score well anyway. I would ask that if you want to be considered for this offer, post a link to your submission as a reply to this post so I may find it easily.
Thankyou so so much Newgrounds,
Antony of The-Exp, and Armor Games
