Flashpoint, the webgame preservation project, received a pretty large “minor” update this week, Flashpoint 8.1: “Spirit of Adventure”, grab it over at https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/downloads/
BlueMaxima hasn’t made a Medium post for this release, so here’s a brief summary of his Discord announcement:
- Tons of new games, over 4000 in fact! And over a 1000 animations to boot!
- BlueMaxima and DarkMoe present: The Newgrounds Auditorium! A complete copy of the entire Newgrounds repertoire of animations (Over 130 000!). The NG Auditorium isn’t brand new, it actually started a standalone project but has in this version been integrated into Flashpoint Infinity.
- Logos and screenshots! Enabled in Flashpoint Infinity by default; in grid view, the logos and screenshots for games/animations will now download automatically!
- Launcher improvements and more!
If you’re desperately in need of a nostalgia overload, now’s a better time than ever to install Flashpoint! But if you’re more interested in what happens behind the scenes, check out our community spotlight:
