First of all, thank you all for 4,000 followers, i think it's been climbing 1,000 for the past month or two??? Like, thats crazy! It took me like 14 years to get to 2,500 even! Haha. Thanks for the support, guys. I've been dealing with my mental health, but getting better.


I've mostly been working on a handful of things behind the scenes that can't be viewed by the public eye yet. The Cursed Server album, a Friday Night Funkin' mod soundtrack for a very popular modder, Newgrounds Zero Hour (hoping to finish it in May sometime with my team, it's coming along great), maybe recording the new Off the Wall episode soon, fixing my sleep schedule, wondering about bringing Piercing Lazer back as I'm working on unfinished songs from that, etc.



Not really much to update other than that. Been thinking about doing more with Jack Serious and seeing if I can get people to use him for commercials and what not. That's about it. Other than that, I'm relaxing more and thinking and seeking more therapy. What are you all looking forward to from me the most?

UPDATE: Building on what I wrote below, I think I might want to be a Video Game Writer (like person who writes characters, the story, builds on stuff and could also pitch story ideas). What would be the best way to go about this?


I haven't been doing well the past few days (more info on mid-life crisis below if anyone wants to watch it and can give me advice that could help that would be great because I'm lost and confused) but I'm still working on stuff like the Newgrounds Zero Hour game.


Need Pixel Artists/Sprite Animators for Newgrounds Zero Hour Game


I need pixel artists and animators for, so if you're interested in that, check out the demo then message me with examples of your work:



Mid-life Crisis


I wish I knew what I want to do for a career but I don't know why I can't figure out what I want to do. I struggle with Autism, PTSD, BPD, Anxiety Disorder, and Depression (off and on but after what I've been through in the past it's understandable and I've been to therapy for months), so holding a job and a stable sleep schedule is really hard for me. Especially since I live alone and rarely see anyone. I'm in this unhealthy lifestyle I don't want to be in. More info in video, if anyone can give me some answers on how to figure this out. Thanks.

The following are the names of songs and projects in general I'm working on as we speak (basically a short version of my long posts):


  • Friday Night Funkin' Tribute Song (that's not really the title, but that's what it is)
  • Cursed Server Album Songs & Comedy Skit (Yes, really.)
  • Newgrounds: Zero Hour - Episode 1 (Still a game, not animation, dummy)
  • Off the Wall Episode 3 (way overdue, I know, SORRY LOL)
  • Prick Juice: A Jack Serious Comedy Skit (yep)
  • Mr. Triggerfinger (80's rock song)
  • Pokemon Season 1 Parody Song (The instrumental has been sitting around but gonna finish vocals on it, my friend put a sick guitar solo on it)
  • The Greatest Showman Medley World Chorus Collab (got like one song left for this)
  • Newgrounds Audio Portal Anniversary Audio Drama Collab (yes, it's still in the works)
  • A Johnny Guy album featuring a couple of these tracks.


So, as you can see, I gave myself way too much to do, again. I've been seeing a career counselor on what I want to do to financially carry my life though, and making good headway in the meantime. PS: If you're a pixel artist and want to help out with the Zero Hour game, looking for pixel artists! I'm mostly looking for more animators but love any help we can get! It's a collab so I want to feature different pixel artists to represent the community! Message me if interested!

So, my migraine issues are going away, but it's a mixture of my furnace which is old and will never use again, and my sleep/anxiety meds, gonna have to switch, but I'm off them now, though now I'm having sleeping issues. But, getting better.


Before I continue, I still need pixel artists/animators for my game Newgrounds: Zero Hour, it's a fangame a tribute to Newgrounds characters and a fan non-canon sequel to Pico's School, so Pico is who you play as. If you're interested, check out the demo then send me a message:


Here's a bit of a sneak preview as to some of the stuff we've gotten done so far, without revealing spoilers, but you're going to see things in this version of the first level you didn't see in the original demo. They've been lowered in quality so no one steals the assets, so this doesn't reflect the full quality of what you see here, it'll look better in the game.

We've got a lot more done than this, but I don't want to show off too much this soon. I want to leave a lot to a surprise, and even that last image is a bit much, but I'm not going to say where that's located or what it is. Make your own theories! ;)



As far as content goes, sadly no Off the Wall this Friday (today by the time you're probably reading this since it's 11 PM Thursday night right now so it's late). I haven't had the energy due to sleep issues. I've been working on music again off and on as you can see, go check out my new DOOM cover:


I'm closer to figuring out what I want to do for a career, working with a career counselor. It'll still take work to get there, but that's okay, taking my time. I really need to get in shape. If I could do anything though, I wish I could get my stories adapted into graphic novels (like long comic books), films, animations. I'm currently working on writing a book.



I haven't been doing much else really, but when I start sleeping well, I'll get in shape, work more on my Cursed Server album to finish it since I'm warming up to music again (oh how I missed it) and a Jack Serious skit I'm working on. Stay tuned, not much more to add. I'll try to make the Off the Wall episode next Friday or Saturday. I notice most people haven't bothered to check the descriptions to look at the video version, shame lol.


Love y'all, thanks for the 3,000+ follows! The number's been climbing quite a bit!

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
