New single, a podcast interview with @Spazkid, my podcast Off the Wall is back (sorta), and I've been streaming games on Twitch. Let's talk about that!

New Single

I just came out with my new Piercing Lazer rock single, "Sinking in the Walls"! It's out at all digital stores, and BandCamp (and here on Newgrounds) if you want to support me by buying it: https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com/track/sinking-in-the-walls-single

Listen to it here on NG:

Podcast with Spazkid about Game Development / Off the Wall

For the return of my podcast series, @OfftheWallShow, this week I came out with a podcast from a stream where @Spazkid and I talked about game development (and exclusive untold things about Nightmare Cops, without giving away too much), and how I'm looking for a programmer for my game Newgrounds: Zero Hour (plus for a paid job for my Steam/console game). I posted about that on the forums: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1484090

Here's the podcast:


I've been streaming on Twitch playing a handful of games if you want to catch me, follow me on there so you know when I'm live! It's usually at night, but I think i'll be doing an earlier stream today, maybe 2. I upload the edited versions of the streams for playthroughs on my youtube channel. I'll drop the links below.

New Music / Record

I really haven't been up to much else, other than working on "Out of the Trenches", the deluxe version of the Piercing Lazer "Trenches" EP, basically adding vocals to some (maybe all?) of the songs, plus adding THREE new songs! Sinking in the Walls is the first single, and one of those new songs! :D

Anywho, catch y'all later I've been kinda down but hanging in there. Thank you all for your support and kind words, I need it right now. Really hoping I find a programmer for Zero Hour and my Steam/console game...

After a long hiatus, @Offthewallshow is back (kind of)! The show has been kind of simplified. I talked with @Spazkidin3D on my Twitch channel (ThatJohnnyGuyOfficial) about game development, as he decided to give me some good advice after he found out I was making a video game!

I also talk about Zero Hour and that I'm looking for pixel artists and a programmer, more info here:


If you think this is you, and you want to work for me, contact me. Check the podcast below.

Ask me anything in my AMA forum thread in the Supporter forum (if you have Supporter status): https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1483713

So after a year of every once in a while working on this one song, cracking down on it as of late, and recording vocals on it, I FINALLY got this new rock single done for all you Piercing Lazer fans! It comes out everywhere (digital stores) October 8th (Friday), BUT you can get EARLY ACCESS to the single by joining my Discord server: https://discord.gg/audJbZj2up

Here's a small preview of the single...

EDIT: Here's the stream for those who missed it: https://youtu.be/l___fXXY3hU

Today is a special day. Madness: Project Nexus is OUT ON STEAM and I'm streaming it on Twitch tonight sometime between 6 and 7 PM Eastern time! I have been waiting for this day for many years, @Krinkels @The-Swain thank you for this awesome game and everyone else involved too! You better believe I'll be wearing my Project Nexus shirt from Pico Day 2016 on stream!

Come say hi in the stream later: https://twitch.tv/thatjohnnyguyofficial

The 21st of this month marked the 15-year anniversary of this account on Newgrounds. I totally forgot. It's the day before Madness Day and yet it was two years before the holiday! Crazy right?

Thank you all for supporting me all these years, if it wasn't for you or @TomFulp encouraging me to keep going and helping me in many ways, I would not be alive right now.

I love you all and I'm sorry I'm an ass sometimes, I really want to do better and not let my fear get the best of me.

Here's to 5 more years until the 20-year mark. I've spent most of my life on this website since 2003 outside of this account. I recently posted about the music and projects I'm working on if you wanna see that:


PS: In a perfect world, someday I'll meet the love of my life on Newgrounds. Not to say I can't anywhere else, but like...dang, wouldn't that be awesome?

Firstly, happy Madness Day to all of you and my buddy @Krinkels himself! I didn't create anything this year because my sleep schedule has been bad and I've not slept well. Maybe next year though!

Also, I have a DIscord server for anyone who wants to catch me there, sometimes I do gaming with the community and keeps you up to date with my YouTube uploads, mostly gaming stuff.

I can't tell you how stoked I am that Project Nexus is finally coming out next week! I'm going to be streaming the game as soon as it comes out, and I LOVE that it's co-op! I've been wanting another co-op game to play on the streams. Here's my Twitch channel.

New Piercing Lazer Music

Secondly, I'm working on TWO Piercing Lazer records. Why? Because one of them will be an expanded version of the Trenches EP, having vocals on some of the songs. It'll be called Out of the Trenches, and have a new song on it as the next single.

The other one, is a new album I'm working on for next year that explores old sounds of Piercing Lazer, and new! Industrial Metal, and Symphonic Metal. I won't reveal the title yet, too early. I plan on getting Dustin and Katja to help with vocals again.

Also, a big change, is that I've decided to release songs as they're finished, instead of waiting for the whole record to come out. My records don't really sell much anyway, eh. But, pumping out music feels good.

Other Projects (FNF Mods, Zero Hour Game, Voice Acting Skits, etc.)

Rapid firing the other stuff I'm doing, so here's a list:

  • The Friday Night Funkin' Vs. Necromancer mod by PhantomFear I did music for, is finally out. Go play it. I'm also doing music commissions for ANOTHER mod! These songs will end up on the new Piercing Lazer album next year, but you'll see them before then.

  • The full version of the first part of Newgrounds Zero Hour is STILL in development...I'm not giving up on it, but I'm switching gears soon most likely to get some more progress underway.

  • I've been voicing/writing audio comedy skits for the Newgrounds Voice Acting Collab again! For 2021 (Part 2), I just finished making 2 skits! Also, I wrote the BIGGEST Jack Serious skit yet! Look forward to seeing part 2 of the collab in November!

  • I am in pre-production for my first Steam/console game! I am currently looking for artists to get their rates for the future, my dad was kind enough to invest money, so people will get paid along the way! If you're interested, let me know! I'm also looking for a programmer.

  • Eventually I'll finish that Johnny Guy comedy record. Been messing with it here and there.

Yeah, i've been busy. I'm also not sure about the future of Cursed Server, in all honesty. I feel like I got out what I needed to get out, but who knows, I still make electronic music sometimes, I might just make something. I know this was a LOT to read, but this is stuff I gotta knock out. Those who have followed me for years know I used to do wayyyy more, and thank gawd i don't do that much now.

I'll try to post a new song in a couple or so weeks, you probably won't see a new post 'till then. Anywho, love you all! Take care!

Remember that big announcement I teased? Yeah, it's today! The Friday Night Funkin Necromancer Mod is here!!! Go play it and check out the REMIX CONTEST in the Twitter link below if you want to make a remix of the songs that could appear in the next mod update! Details below!! I had fun making music for this mod.

Also here's my favorite song I did for the mod if you want to check it out on Newgrounds (though this is a more full version from my Piercing Lazer EP, "Trenches"):

Saturday, something you've all been waiting for a long time is finally getting released. It is music-related, but it's also bigger than that and way more. I'll be making a post on it tomorrow, I'm just hyping it up. If you want to see my last post with the main updates, click here.


Posted by ThatJohnnyGuy - September 5th, 2021

I've learned some things in the past week about myself and in general. So, what's up with me? Firstly, I've decided I'm determined to be a game developer with a team, or bust. I'm currently in the pre-production process for my Steam game I want to complete next year. Well, the first segment of the game.

My A/C went out so i've had a few days of sweating my butt off in my house not able to get it fixed till Tuesday. Other than that, I may be working on a new Piercing Lazer song, as well as working on the comedy skits I wrote for the Newgrounds Voice Acting Collab, and voicing some of them.

As for Newgrounds Zero Hour, still waiting for programming progress, but I've been getting assets done by my lovely artists, just 2 more to go before we're entirely done for the next release.

On top of that, I've been streaming on Twitch, lately Fallout: New Vegas. I've been uploading the cut down/highlighted versions (playthroughs) on my YouTube channel. Other games I have planned are Who's Your Daddy, Hollow Knight, No Man's Sky, Ultimate Chicken Horse, and continuing my Raft playthrough and Sea of Thieves. A lot to juggle, yep.

Not much other than that, just been kinda down and trying to get my head on straight again. I'm thankful for all the support from you guys. I recently have uploaded the last tracks (besides the instrumental versions) from my Cursed Server album on here, so it'll be a little before any new music goes up. I'll also be continuing work on my comedy album.

It may sound like a lot but there's a lot of down time between all this stuff, it's really laid back for me compared to how much more I used to put on my plate. I'm taking it easy for now.

Also, do any pixel artists wanna make 2 simple enemy sprites for Newgrounds Zero Hour? That's all there is left for the assets for this part. Peace.

I still don't feel good about how i left things and the more i think about it the more I'm understanding what i actually did on Clock Day. I'm sorry for being a jerk, I'm not happy with myself right now.

I'm surprised I didn't get more backlash or get cancelled or cussed out by a lot of people for what I did. But thanks for not being too harsh on me I guess, aside from like a couple people. Going back into hiding for a bit...
