The public version of 0.26.x will still be coming out this Friday, but for now, I have another diversion for you. Last night I put version 1.1.7 of Ouroboros up on Newgrounds, and fortunately it managed to get accepted fairly quickly:
Even subtracting the people I know, it seems Newgrounds doesn't hate the game! =D I didn't think Ouroboros was a great fit for the site, so I'm pleased that it has been somewhat well-received so far. Depending on how well it does, this could be a chance for my work to get exposure to a large group of people who probably haven't seen it before. Please check it out, and if you're a Newgrounds user, maybe give me a vote?
EDIT: Huh, we got frontpaged pretty fast. I thought daily top five was about the best we can hope for, but this is unexpectedly good. Votes are still helpful for potential ranking and longevity on the front page - thanks to everyone!
EDIT 2: Alright: frontpaged, daily 2nd place, and thousands of views so far! I was hesitant about this, but it seems to have been a good choice. Now it's just a question of how long the ratings/views keep us on the front page, but it should stay there for at least a while, pulling in some new attention. One more thanks to everyone!
Full disclosure: if you played the old version of Ouroboros, much less 2.0, there's not really much new for you. I had to make some modifications so that it would be accepted to Newgrounds, but otherwise it's a port of the same game. I hope that some people encounter it for the first time and enjoy it, though!
Anyway, back Friday with the public version of the release.
