Holy shit I got a mention in the "This Week On Newgrounds" video this week!

I haven't been around on NG long but it is such a great honor to have been mentioned in this. This may sound kinda dumb, but when I started making Crypt Shyfter on Newgrounds I set myself 3 goals:

1) To win an award for an episode

2) To be on the Newgrounds weekly video

3) Get Grandor as one of the characters on the homepage art

I just didn't expect to hit any of those goals so quick! Getting Grandor in the FP art will be damn tough but I plan on making Crypt Shyfter more and more badass as the series goes on and I improve as an animator and storyteller so maybe it'll happen one day :p

I just recorded episodes 16-18 yesterday and this week's episode is just about finished so I hope to keep supplying you guys with exciting new videos every Sunday until you get sick of me and tell me to fuck off :)

The first 10 episodes of Crypt Shyfter are on YouTube, but as of episode 11 this show is NG exclusive so if you know anyone who might be interested in some good ole fashioned D&D paper cutout fun, bring 'em over to Newgrounds!

Thanks so much to @noodle for the shoutout in this week's video!!

And thank you for making your series. You've been winning some daily awards out of it.

Yeah i really did not expect those at all (though I was hoping for one!).

A lot of the animation on NG is more like frame by frame flash stuff and mine is this sorta weird digital paper cut out so I didn't think it would really fit well with the other stuff on this site to be honest.

I was a little self conscious about my videos at first because they definitely don't feel as polished (to me) as a lot of the stuff I've watched on here over the years, but I'm glad you're enjoying it and that you let me know about that mention in the video!

I'm blowing up my lady's phone right now like "OMG WTF YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?!?!" lol

You're very welcome! Taking on a weekly series like this is very ambitious, and I admire your work ethic putting it out there! I didn't realize you had switched to being Newgrounds exclusive. That's great dude! I'm always a big fan of people putting Newgrounds first and foremost in their priorities.
Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing the series grow and thrive :)

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Thank you! Yeah, I was originally posting on Newgrounds first, then YouTube a day later, but YouTube just doesn't bring me many views and the community on NG is just way better than YouTube, so it feels better posting here exclusively. If anyone finds the first few episodes on YT and they want more they can come here :p

Besides it's not really about the YT money for me, I already have a day job that covers normal expenses and while I'd love to animate full time, my current job still gives me enough time to work on animations during the nights and weekends, so I just sit in the study with my wife (who writes at her desk while I animate at mine) and we just jam all night and work on stuff.

It's sorta my happy place, an escape from the real world to just sit down at night and make up stories to share with everyone. Hopefully I can keep it improving and start collaborating with more folks on NG- legit voice actors will be next lol
