I've enjoyed my favourite couple of days on Newgrounds so far!
I desperately threw together a last minute entry for AIM 2021, inspired by @potterzilla 's amazing Dread artwork. The track turned out better than I could have hoped.
It then got frontpaged (always nice!).
But my absolute favourite development is Potterzilla put together an incredible speedpaint video of their work accompanied by my track. My favourite thing about this is they then play a couple of actual Metroid tunes, and I honestly think they sound pretty close in vibe!
The cherry on the cake would be if either of the two tracks I submitted place in the contest - but in all honesty it feels like I've already won :)
Working with new people is the best thing about Newgrounds. I hope there are more initiatives on here that encourage this sort of thing because it's very wholesome!
Here are my 2 entries for AIM, do have a listen. best of luck to all!
