November ended pretty roughly for me, with my mom dying after a 7 year long battle with cancer. It was sad to have Thanksgiving without her but her wake, the day after, was truly inspiring due to the overwhelmingly large attendance. I was reminded of just how giving a person she was. I wanted to continue that giving spirit, so Christmas ADVENTure 2019 was set in motion.
With only a couple days to get everything ready, I thought it was going to be disaster, luckily @ninjamuffin99 open sources every project he does, including last year's Advent. Even with that, huge shoutout to @BrandyBuizel and @Cymbourine for going beast-mode so that day 1 went off without a hitch.
This was the first time I ever hosted a NG collab, I had no idea what I was doing but I'm so immensely proud of what we all accomplished. 31 artists and 5 musicians rolled up their sleeves and GOT. SHIT. DONE. This is -without a doubt- the best Newgrounds project I've been a part of and everyone involved should be proud. Special shoutout to Brandy, @TheDyingSun, @NickConter for working with me nearly every day this month.
I'd also like to thanks everyone who followed me this year, in January I had 33 followers and now i have close to 4 times that amount. All I want to do is make things that matter so it's great to know that people think I made things worth playing.
I wish you all a happy new year!
Edit: Here's the doc from advent in case anyone want's to peek behind the curtain and see how things were done
Also, anyone who participated in the advent can get any medal, unless you're a tool and I added you to the naughty list
