Firstly, thank you for 3000 follows! 3000 fans, dang, it's taken a long time to get to this goal, but lately my numbers have been skyrocketing. Thanks everyone! Now as to why I'm a dunce.


I'm confused dude. I had another guy come inspect the place today, and NO signs of carbon monoxide detected. But there's gotta be something in this house affecting my health. I'm still trying to figure out what it is, but at least that's ruled out. Just frustrating I guess, but at least I don't have to replace a $3000 furnace. Still had to pay for the inspection though, thanks to all who donated!


In the meantime, im trying to get better, head still kinda hurts and is under pressure, ears ringing, I haven't been able to do much hardly with music. I'm slowly getting better though it seems. I wonder if it's the fact the weather has been so up and down over here lately. Anywho, I still need artists for my game, check the info below!



Need Pixel Artists & Animators for Newgrounds: Zero Hour Game!


If you don't know what this game is, definitely go check out the demo from first for context: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/664782


If you are a pixel artist/animator, whether it be sprites or backgrounds, and you're interested in helping out with the project, message me! We're getting close to the completion of the first stage of the game. The game will be episodic, and updated with new stages every now and then (the same project file).


If you're interested in helping us, shoot me a message here, and you'll want to create an account on Trello.com, and we have a Discord server where we're working on it.


I'm hanging in there guys, just kinda bummed. In the meantime I've been seeing a career counselor to try and figure out how to rake in the dough doing something I enjoy to carry my life forward while still doing my creative stuff. After the health issues are figured out, I'll be back to working on the music I was working on.

I know I just posted a newspost, about the new Off the Wall episode and needing pixel artists for my game NG Zero Hour (which I"ll mention again below), but this is an emergency. Mild carbon monoxide poisoning, new furnace, asking for donations type of deal.


So, the past couple or so months i've been developing health issues, and a friend pointed out it may be carbon monoxide poisoning from a furnace leak. Sure enough, he was right. But, it's going to cost $3000. My dad is helping, but I've only been in this home for a year, and this is devastating for us financially. If anyone wants to help contribute to that.


Dad gave me an oil radiator heater to keep the house warm in the meantime so I don't have to run the furnace, I've been airing out the house and running air purifiers, that helps, but if anyone wants to help donate to help us, I'll link my ko-fi and paypal below, and thank you.

Heya! Before I get into how I need pixel artists & animators for my Newgrounds: Zero Hour game, or the new episode of my talk show, @OfftheWallShow (go follow it!), if you want to know how i've been in life, and a broad look at everything I'm working on, check my last post: https://johnnyguy.newgrounds.com/news/post/1143361



Need Pixel Artists & Animators for Newgrounds: Zero Hour Game!


If you don't know what this game is, definitely go check out the demo from some years back, it's a big part of Pixel Day history, a holiday I created in 2016 with Tom Fulp! Me and my team made a real solid demo, and I've been determined to get this thing done, check it out: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/664782


If you are a pixel artist/animator, whether it be sprites or backgrounds, and you're interested in helping out with the project, we're going by a stage-by-stage workflow. The game will be episodic, and updated with new stages every now and then (the same project file). If you're interested in helping us, shoot me a message here, and you'll want to create an account on Trello.com, and we have a Discord server where we're working on it.


Currently I have an amazing team that consists of our programmer @Dungeonation, and our team of artists that have done work for the new version @prosciuttoman, @scepterdpinoy, @aluterrian @zetosoul, @Steaf23, @gatekid3, @terderrer, @schreckengast, and someone who isn't on Newgrounds but also a great artist (they change their name sometimes so I don't know what to call them here).



Off the Wall New Episode: I Review Dead Estate on Newgrounds, Give Advice, and Field Report Featuring TrinaTan!


I mean, the title just basically explained almost everything in the episode, I recommend watching the video version of the episode that premieres on YouTube tonight @ 8 PM EST, but if you want to listen to the NG version, it's already out with a great ol' song by @ScottJacob in the audio version! I review that great game, Dead Estate (CLASSIC) by Milk Bar Lads: @milkbarjack @geloxlp @ico @@loudnnoisy @majorwipeout @milkyace @stradomyre @thaspiciest



Below I'll link the video link to the YouTube video version, but if you want to write in some fanmail for me to read on the show, shoot me a message on here and mark the subject of the message as "OTW Fanmail"! Let me know what you'd like me to review or talk about on the show, stuff you'd like to see! Thanks!

Life Update (and a checklist of content on the way)


Hey guys, sorry I haven't been active. Past few weeks I've had a mild migraine waiting for it to pass. Ears are constantly ringing, then there's head pressure. It's passing, but very slowly. In the meantime, below is a checklist of things I want to get done when I'm better soon. Thank you to all those who enjoyed the season 2 premiere episode of Off the Wall too! Go check it out if you haven't, in my last post, and latest audio submission (check out the video version too).


I'm sleeping better, getting up the same time every day, and I'm seeking career counseling next week to figure out what specific path I want to take to carry my life financially, and something in-person I can do that I'll love. Nothing I'm doing now is going to carry my life, and that's okay, they're just fun hobbies. Also wanting to get in shape and take better care of myself in general.


Here's what's coming next, look at the checklist below.



Checklist:


Cursed Server album - Getting close to being done, should be out by April or May, but you'll get the next single sometime next month.


Pokemon Parody Song - I've had everything done but the vocals, this will be one of the very next things I do once I feel good enough to do it.


The Greatest Showman World Chorus Medley Project - This has been on hold for too long, there's one song left I gotta finish, I feel bad for putting it on hold for so long because of the people involved, I want to finish the song before I finish my next album, I've used music as therapy so I haven't been as much in the mood for much else, but now I'm getting back into it soon and doing mentally better. This will be coming soon in the coming months.


Sixx A.M. Cover Song - Small update I just made on Thursday to this post last minute even though I'm posting on Friday (tomorrow) but originally my friend was going to sing on this cover I'm working on but they felt it wasn't good for their voice, so I'll be singing it instead. I've had the instrumental done. Don't know when this will be done, but the near future.


Off the Wall Episodes - I mean, duh, but yeah every 2 weeks Friday nights. I might make releases earlier in the day. Episode 2 is going to feature the first advice segment of season 2, expect more of those. I want to share life experiences, as well as a few different kinds of other segments coming in episodes 3 and 4 I have planned. I won't spoil them, but one of them is from someone else for the show. I'm gradually going to get more people involved in the future for segments here and there.


Audio Comedy Skits - I've been making skits for fun and for the Newgrounds VA Collab once again this year, so expect occasional skits. I also want to send them to the Newgrounds Podcast. I've been sitting on a couple of scripts and soon you're gonna get one, but I've had ideas for others. This will probably be done within a month and I'll try to pump them out more often. I got a couple Jack Serious skits planned, too.


Newgrounds Zero Hour Game - It's been making steady progress, but recently slowed down a little. Though progress is coming along nicely all around. My goal is to have Stage 1's remake done by Pico Day, or before, but we're taking our time. It's episodic updates, so new stages will be added here and there.



After the Cursed Server album, I'll be taking a break from my own personal music, and focusing on game soundtrack work (if everything works out as planned), and maybe A Silent Voice (my band) depending on how everyone feels, we've all been quite busy with personal projects and our drummer/guitarist has had medical issues lately, poor guy. I eventually want to narrow down what I do, hence the 2 weeks per talk show episode release, to manage my time better, and focus more on whatever career I end up wanting to do from career counseling.


Eventually it'll mostly be the talk show, comedy skits, occassional game updates for NG Zero Hour, and the game soundtrack work I won't be able to post. It isn't the end of my music of course, just will be a bit of a hiatus from posting music specifically. Figuring things out and progressing mentally, I recently let a lot of anger go. I'd like to talk about that in one of the next episodes of Off the Wall.


Love you guys, also thank you for all the new followers! I can't believe I"m already at almost 3,000 fans! I've been getting a lot more lately! :D

Hey guys! Off the Wall Season 2 is finally here with the new talk show format! The NG audio version features a couple songs like Season 1 did for the fans, though YouTube's audience is different for the visual version, so if you want to get more of the feel of the show (I made it as if it would appear on TV) check out the video version. New episodes every 2 weeks Fridays at 8 PM Eastern!


PS: Write fanmail so I can read it on the show at rfmusic180@gmail.com (or PM it to me here). Check out the first episode below!


NG version:


YouTube version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-HY1b57_xg




On a seperate note, I haven't been working on music for most of 2 weeks because for the past two weeks i've had a mild migraine, apparently it's normal when you overcome something and recover from trauma. Recently been able to let go of my lifelong anger, fear, and pain, regarding something, and able to forgive people, see in perspective better now. It's mostly better now, I'm at the tail end of it, just trying not to make it worse by making music at the moment.


No worries, I'll be working on the Cursed Server album more soon! Before this happened, I made a LOT of progress on the record, so I think a break was well deserved lol. It's getting close to done. On another note, I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do for a life career, I'm kinda confused. I'll post more on that on another post.


Thanks for everyone who's supposed my show Off the Wall and everything I do this far!

Off the Wall Season 2 premieres THIS Friday at 8 PM Eastern time with episode 1, so I decided to put out a little trailer giving you all a sneak peek at what you can expect! This is going to be a bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) show, hoping I can manage that. I'll be sharing life experiences, advice, indie game reviews (some from Newgrounds), comedy skits, game theories, and more segments!


Here's the video and audio trailers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9vb008u3f8



I have a handful of people who got involved and pitched some awesome material for some of the segments! I'm loving what I have so far, and the NG audio versions of the episodes will incorporate some music to those who liked the music in Season 1! See you Friday!

Happy Pixel Day! @TomFulp and I will be at some point judging entries, and I may stream the animations and games live as I play them, and the music, depending on my schedule within the week. Also, I have a big announcement to make about the Newgrounds: Zero Hour game me and my team have been working on....



Newgrounds: Zero Hour BIG Update


The game will be episodic! Meaning, every update will add a new stage to the game as they're finished! We're always accepting new pixel artists, so if you want to apply to do work for the game (as little or as much as you want), send me a message with examples of your work! :)



This also means the game will be coming out sooner, starting with a new intro cutscene to better explain the story, and Stage 1, a remake of the first stage from the demo from the assets I was able to save (the background will be different because sadly that one didn't make it in the assets uploads for some reason). We're taking our time with it as we want to make sure each episode is polished, challenging, and worth the wait.



We have a lot of the same assets so I was able to save a good chunk of the content we had outside of the demo. The new stage 1 will still be looking quite a bit different though, since I didn't have the old background, unfortunately. I like the style this is going for though, the artists are doing a great job! I'm sure you'll see Stage 1 by Spring, hopefully. After that, we're going to figure out how to update the game while not affecting save files, or do stage selection. We'll figure it out when we cross that bridge.



I can't wait to see your submissions for Pixel Day! I'm really happy it's still going after all these years after I suggested the idea to Tom. It's also an honor that one of my favorite pixel artists Maruki made the promo animation/art for it and is getting quite the exposure on twitter! I hope more people know about Pixel Day and see the great community that's newgrounds. :) Love you guys! <3
