New TOME Short + MAGfest + Happy Holidays!

Posted by Kirbopher - December 29th, 2012

Almost ready to say goodbye to 2012!

I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday and a great year. I think it turned out pretty well, all things considered! There's further heights I want to climb to in 2013, but I'm satisfied with everything I managed to do in the last twelve months. Hopefully you guys are too, and look forward to what else I've got in store!

Before we say Happy Birthday to me on the 31st and goodbye to December, I managed to put out a new TOME short called "Minigame Madness" which I'm quite proud of. It takes place between Episodes 05 and 06, but holds up pretty well on its own as a fun little venture. I wanted to do something centralized on Flamegirl, so Liz and I came up with a fun little side-story involving her and her friends, as well as a few clever or not-so-clever app games. We JUST managed to hit 6000 likes on the official TOME Facebook page, so thank you everyone for your support. I hope you guys enjoyed the short and it ties you over for a bit until we get Episode 06 done. It's a bit over halfway finished and I'll be pulling major crunch-time on it throughout January.

HOWEVER, my first order of business with January is going back to my favorite convention, MAGfest! I'll be heading out there with the folks from BlueCoreStudios who'll be premiering their Sonic the Hedgehog feature film starring Jaleel White as the voice of Sonic! I did some work on the movie as well, so keep an ear out for me if you're at the screening! I'll also be there for my 3rd "Voice-A-Palooza" panel, hosted by Wes Johnson (voice of many characters in the Elder Scrolls series) where we'll be improv'ing a video game concept created by you, the audience! There's also gonna be a TON of super-talented Newgrounds & YouTube animators who'll be there, all of which I'm looking forward to seeing! As I've often said, there's not another con that's filled with more pure unbridled fun than MAGfest.

That's about all I've got for now, but once again: Happy Holidays to all and a very Happy New Year to everyone who's followed and supported me this past year!


well we know the first moderator now although the others are funny

Happy Early Birthday! :D

Happy to see that things are going well. I look forward to all your stuff in 2013!

I loved the new TOME short! Im just curious on if we will ever see Martain Taunts 2 on Newgrounds.


Fifth comment, nice. Hey, when do you plan on releasing tome 6, the story just seemed to be getting good.

"I hope you guys enjoyed the short and it ties you over for a bit until we get Episode 06 done. It's a bit over halfway finished and I'll be pulling major crunch-time on it throughout January."

alright! good news all around! will some of the animators have booths at magfest?

heh looks like im not the only one getting older on the same day... happy birthday :D

hope for the best in the next year!!! im going to make a comment that may be a little stupid, but i don't really know about if you know him or if you're going to meet him at the MAGfest.....ok here we go!! you should ask egoraptor to make a character voice in TOME! even if it's just for one episode (this is why i say i don't know about this, i don't know if it's easy to comunicate in the U.S. to do this jobs....im from Mexico) but oh well, just my comment, happy birthday!! (tomorrow)

Happy birthday, and have a fantastic new years!

Seeing as how i'm probably not going to make the con (dammit) I hate to be that guy but I have to ask.
Any chance of another Nin10doh! collab ever?

happy birthday! im a huge fan of your movies and tome!

so busy! hah, amazing as always though~
happy birthday! have a great day!

Wow, your birthday is on the same day as mine!

so Kirbopher who is more cool sonic or Tome in your opinion ?

Hey you wouldn't happen to be going to Comic-Con in san Diego would you, because I would like to meet an amazing animator like yourself.
