Before I talk about Pixel Day and the game I'm working on I need people for, go check out the Newgrounds Voice Actor Collab! I wrote some skits in it and I voiced some of the characters:

Pixel Day 2021 is January 23rd, coming up soon! If you want to make anything inspired by the 8-bit/16-bit gaming days, now's the perfect time to start to submit ON the 23rd with the tag "pixelday2021" (and maybe pixel-day-2021 i dunno @TomFulp will announce it). I made a podcast to announce it:

ALSO! If you are a programmer or a pixel artist and want to work on the Newgrounds: Zero Hour game, check out the demo from 2015:

I am looking for a dedicated programmer (I'll work around your schedule, just want a weekly update or something to keep motivation even if not much is done, I'm reasonable, but if you feel your life is way too busy, then probably not good for you).

You can make as many or as little assets for the game as you want, take your time! This is a collage, a mural of Newgrounds' finest pixel artists! There's a lot of art we have that isn't in the demo we haven't implemented yet but we still need more art! Let me know!

Fan of my electronic music project CURSED SERVER and want to know what's next for the project? Fan of my voice acting and Jack Serious? Wondering when that big voice acting collab i voiced multiple parts for and wrote scripts for is coming out? Wondering about my game Newgrounds Zero Hour?

I was interviewed on @TheNewgroundsPodcast about all this and officially announcing my return to the show, joined by my friend @VoicesByCorey, and hosted by friends @PsychoGoldfish and @GoodL! Take a listen:

Also, speaking of the Newgrounds Voice Acting Collab by @VoicesByCorey, here's a Jack Serious skit from the collab! It features myself and many others! I wrote the script, made the music, directed it, casted everyone, but Corey and Nick did the editing and sound arrangement haha. Thanks guys! Lots of good voice actors in this one! Jack Serious has his own theme song now. Check it:

PS: Anyone wanna make some Jack Serious fanart? I wish I had artwork of him for thumbnails sometimes.

I'm 29, suckas. Almost 30. Damnit. I appreciate the birthday wishes! Don't forget to check out the CURSED SERVER songs on here and Bandcamp! I uploaded the last one from the EP today! https://cursedserver.bandcamp.com/.

Also, i recorded some of the jackbox games with some of the Party Games & Chill crew from Newgrounds, so expect that youtube series to come out soon as I'm editing it. Most likely a couple days from now, or tomorrow. I'm also working on new music for CURSED SERVER, and my comedy songs I intend on finishing, and a lot of voice acted comedy stuff coming very soon.

PS: Catch me live on @TheNewgroundsPodcast with @VoicesByCorey on the Discord server Tueday 8:30 Eastern time! Or whenever the episode is out catch us there to talk about the Newgrounds Voice Actor Collab with a Jack Serious skit!

Honestly, loving this fan-art piece my friend @7NG made of me. It's good stuff. Go check it out:

Will update this post with a picture of my kitty Jinsei (Jin for short) but need to game with a friend for now, peace.

Finally sleeping better, and I've been grinding for DAYS to get a LOT of work done around the house and other errands, and today I only got a little left to do, so I can finally take a break and have more free time! I'm getting my new cat from the shelter Wednesday. After about a week of time with them, when I get to know them, they get comfy, and I give them a name, I'll post about them here with pics! :)

I also wanted to thank everyone for the success of my side project CURSED SERVER. Especially the support of @TomFulp (and whoever else frontpaged the other songs as well, but probably just him, which is still awesome). I wasn't even expecting any of the songs to get frontpaged, but 3 over the span of a month? That's crazy, thank you! The fact this record has recieved so much support on Newgrounds means a lot, thank you guys.

Unfortunately, no one has bought the EP record for $5, but because you guys have supported me and these songs, given how well they've been doing here, and because I love you guys, I'm going to bump the price down to $3 to make it more affordable, here ya go: https://cursedserver.bandcamp.com/.

When I started making this side project record a year ago, I was doing it for myself, approaching music different in a way that was healing, therapeutic for me, something to give back to myself. I didn't expect the record to be successful, especially not this much, even though no one bought it, most of the songs have gotten a lot of views on Newgrounds, so I'm glad people like it. It felt very freeing to make this music, lots of fun, and makes me feel joyful.

I wanted it to be my return to electronic music, but in a different, more experimental way, things I haven't tried before, and trying new things with genres I've done before, and do weird, meme, and horror types of things. I have plans to do more weird things with the project, even weirder. At the moment, I'm already working on the second record (slowly), working on a Darkwave song for the first time, but it's a hybrid of genres, something you haven't heard in Darkwave before.

I'm hoping to game with you guys more on Discord on my server and the other servers I'm on with y'all. I'm also working on my comedy music and audio skits, and soon will be working on A Silent Voice music with my bandmates Katja and Dustin. Soon @VoicesByCorey and I will be premiering a skit I wrote, directed, composed music for, and acted in as Jack Serious. Yep, it's a Jack Serious skit! All the actors did an amazing job too! Can't wait to show you guys!

Stay tuned, I got more music and voice acted comedy on the way! And...a sweet lil' kitty. :3

2019, and 2020, have been very rough years for me. Today, on my favorite holiday, it just got a lot worse. I'm losing hundreds of dollars, and my spirit is pretty broken right now. Yes, therapy helped me with a lot of things, but there's been a lot fighting me in my life, and living alone through it, almost never seeing anyone in person, makes it that much harder. Therapy won't help with these struggles, just the ones it helped me overcome earlier.

I appreciate all the support you guys have been giving me. It does mean a lot. But, there's a lot beating me down right now, and rather than post it here, here's a thread from my twitter page where it's more seperated and readable, because it's a lot, if you choose to read it. This is me at my weakest.

The short version is, don't use Cashapp. I regret using it. But, it's also saying what i've been through this year, some things I haven't mentioned. I'm not going to feel motivated to make content for a bit....I"m sorry. Here's the thread: https://twitter.com/thatjohnnyguy2/status/1322701335419080704

I'm not asking for money, I'm not asking for miracles, I just want all of this to stop. I can't take much more of this. I'll still appear on The Newgrounds Podcast with Corey for the interview regarding our skits in the NGVA Collab, but that's about it for now...really I just want to sleep well instead of 4 to 5 hours every day, I'm always exausted, never getting anything done anymore.

So, some guy named John Dover listened to the CURSED SERVER EP and apparently disappeared after some weird stuff happened to him. Found a leaked police tape online someone sent me and uploaded it here. Check it out, spooky stuff. More updates to follow tomorrow on Halloween.

  • Unpublished Submission

For info on the EP, check the last post:

I just came out with the debut EP of my new side project, CURSED SERVER! Pick it up for $5: https://cursedserver.bandcamp.com/album/cursed-server

And here's two of the singles on Newgrounds:


It's hard to explain or describe what CURSED SERVER actually is, but if you look at the cover, and listen to the music, you kinda understand the vibes. It's very experimental electronic dance music, coming back to certain genres in a weird, different way. Freeki is the mascot. Yes, I'm Freeki. Surprise. Freeki was originally a secret music project, but it didn't fair too well. So, I'm using that music in this project instead.

Freeki is a ghost from another dimension; haunting anyone's computer that plays the music. It's music from another dimension that connects you to the afterlife. Artwork of Freeki/Blue Guy on the cover by: https://twitter.com/Meii_ma

Freeki started as a project last year when I was in Florida, I wanted to make therapeutic music that gave back to me in a loving way, it felt really different. "afterlife_lobby.exe" was the first song, then Farstruck. It made me feel happy to even listen to it, it was healing for me. My friend was helping me by promoting our cover of that League of Legends song, "Giants", a big collab with my friend Aika Intong/Ai-Say and others (the instrumental version is on my new record).

You might notice one of the names is Rainych, yes, the same Rainych who did that famous Japanese version of that Doja Cat song, "Say So". She's really nice. I honestly liked working with all the singers, and would like to work with them again soon. I've been meaning to finish a World Chorus project with Aika, I plan on working on that collab to finish it very soon.

The name itself comes from the whole "Cursed Memes" culture, creepypastas, the works. Some of it is chill stuff to listen to in the background, some of it inspired by video game music, but in the future it's going to be more goofy and memey basically experimenting with things that make you go "WTF is this?" and stuff.

There is a bit of a horror element to it though, at least one of the songs. I plan on doing more creepy songs under it too. Though, I really need to finish those comedy songs, so for now, here's the debut EP of CURSED SERVER. I uploaded one of the songs to NG, so enjoy:

For those still out of the loop, I used to be Real Faction, until I recently changed my name to Johnny Guy (my real name). I promised a podcast version of a couple posts I made recently, and finally got around to it, explaining why I changed my name and am moving youtube channels. It's the final episode of my long-running podcast series of 4 years, Talking Real.

I'm still staying on this Newgrounds account, no worries! In the podcast, I talk about recent things happening to me, my journey through depression (and out of it), the origin behind the meaning of the name Real Faction (and why it isn't me anymore), my new artist name meaning, things I'll keep doing, things I'm discontinuing, and new things to come in the future (like comedy music), just stuff I'm working on.

I also realize I never talked about my return to The Newgrounds Podcast, but I'm coming back soon as a contributor (yes, more Jack Serious as well) but that's also a thing. It's a longer episode, but timestamps are in the description to skip around the topics, they're labeled. Enjoy!

Also, get my new album for $2, you get some of my new music, and every version of Simple Sight (including the new 2020 version) until Halloween, which it will be priced $10 after: https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com/album/crypt-the-simple-sight-collection

I made a song for Madness Day after 5 years of not making a song for one of my favorite series on Newgrounds. I'm in a better place in life, more organized. I decided to go back to my roots with Liquid Drum & Bass, like I used to make in 2006 when I started making music as RealFaction, but it's like a spiritual reboot, as this is my first song under JohnnyGuy.

If you want more info about the inspiration behind the song, read the song's description, but it's inspired by Project Nexus (coming to Steam) levels directly. Enjoy:

Happy Madness Day, and love ya @Krinkels ol pal. I got another surprise for you all in a few days, get ready.

EDIT: Also, sadly to say, I am leaving @OffTheWallShow in a month. It's been great, but I want to do other things with my life. It's a great radio show that helps musicians get out there on the airwaves, and gets more traffic on newgrounds as we upload. I want to keep the show going though, even without me, so we're looking for a new host to look for music, has a good mic to record on from home, and has experience with audio mixing/editing.

If you're interested, and want more info, read and reply to this forum post: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1457400

It's been a good run, but Crazy Johnny K. has a lot of things on the way elsewhere. I have a couple of interviews with a couple of great guests on the way, and I have to get through the remainder of my current submitted music musicians sent me. You've all been great, keep sending us music! I hope you enjoy these last few shows with me, let me know if you want to audition to be the next host, I want to make sure it goes to the right person. Love you guys.

EDIT: And apparently I have an article on me on @TheTankTribune too haha unexpectedly! I'm honored. https://thetanktribune.newgrounds.com/news/post/1117094

I had hoped for this day someday, but I have finally been interviewed by @TheInterviewer, and what an honor it is! It couldn't have been at a better time in all honesty with my name change, I'm glad it wasn't until now. Honestly, I was shocked at how much he knows about me, and how closely he followed me career over the years. I'm really honored.

I'm officially calling him my #1 fan based on the stuff he's asked nobody else has, and how much of my work he's followed. It's pretty crazy, and awesome. It's the longest, and most thorough interview I've ever had, I was really impressed, and honored. Go read the full interview, both parts 1 and 2. It's good stuff.

Part 1: https://theinterviewer.newgrounds.com/news/post/1116441

Part 2: https://theinterviewer.newgrounds.com/news/post/1116442

Thank you all for following me and supporting me this far, it means a lot.
