Currently working on Abomi Nation (my first Steam release), releasing July 29th, 2021. It's a roguelike, monster-taming RPG. It would mean a lot if you gave it a wishlist!

Posted by OrangePylon - July 29th, 2021

Hey, Newgrounds! Today marks a big occasion for ol' Carl. Abomi Nation, the indie game I've been working on for over four years, is finally available for purchase on Steam!

Recruit 100+ different Abomi creatures in this hyper-replayable, ultra-customizable roguelike inspired by the Nuzlocke challenge! It's a monster-taming roguelike, complete with fully-randomized areas and permadeath!


The game has very Newgrounds roots, from being fully-animated in Flash to featuring an Audio Portal artist as the composer of its soundtrack! He's been uploading songs from the OST right here to NG, so give 'em a listen!


Thank you to everybody who's supported me along this insane ride! Please consider supporting Abomi Nation!

Abomi Nation is finally ready for its final big update before launch! That's right, you can finally get your hands on Abomi Nation JULY 29TH -- but that's not all! -- you can also download a DEMO for free right now as a part of Steam Next Fest! Once the game comes out, you'll be able to transfer your save files over from the demo into the full game! As part of Next Fest, I'll be streaming tomorrow morning (June 17th at 10am EST) with my new friends at DANGEN Entertainment, Abomi Nation's publisher! (Look ma, I made it!)

Development on Abomi Nation has been the ride of my life. To finally have a release date in sight is mind-blowing. I sincerely hope everyone enjoys their time with this demo!

Hey, Newgrounds! It's been a while since I've updated here, but I still check the reviews on my old Flashes every day. I haven't gone anywhere.

Abomi Nation has been making strides lately. I just opened my own Discord, so feel free to come in and say hi!

On the development side, I'm on track to hit my self-made deadline of Q4 2020. I'm progressing with the story, and I have 88/100 Abomis ready to go. I think I'm gonna make it!

If this is your first time hearing about Abomi Nation and the above trailer sold you on it, definitely try the demo out on Steam! Do me a solid and throw it on your Wishlist while you're there!

If you want to stay updated, you can follow me on Twitter. I post new footage there multiple times a week.

See you guys when I'm approaching release!

Hey, Newgrounds! It's been a while since I've posted any substantial updates. That's because I've been hard at work getting Abomi Nation to the state it's at now. It's been two and a half years since I went public with the alpha, and I hope the effort I've put into it since then shows.

You can download the demo on itch or Steam if you'd like to try it out. I'd really appreciate any feedback. If you're playing on Steam, throw me a wishlist if you're feeling generous. The next step for me is to find publishing, and wishlists are a great metric for showing interest in the game. It would help me a lot. :)

For those who don't know, Abomi Nation is a roguelike RPG where you collect and fight monsters on a procedurally-generated island. You can set up a run to your liking -- change the difficulty, the monster randomization, whether permadeath is on or off -- there are tons of options in there to make sure you're playing the adventure that you want to play.

Thanks for your support, Newgrounds! The game wouldn't be where it is today without you.

It's now been a full year since I released Pound the Puss to the Newgrounds Game Portal, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you guys for a great experience.

I made Pound to amuse myself over a summer; I figured maybe a couple thousand people would play it at best. Almost 150,000 plays and an onslaught of overwhelmingly heartwarming reviews later, I find myself struck by how such a crude game garnered such a warm response from people.

It's been a year, but the game still feels fresh to me. Thanks to Newgrounds' support for the game, it saw its way into the "Best Games This Year" section, resting at #2 for a good while. Because of this, I saw new reviews almost every day, and was constantly reminded how my unfortunate little puss protagonist brightened someone's day. It really helped me through harder times while working on my other projects. Now a year's passed, and it's cleared a spot for another fortunate game... So, as traction on my puss dies down a bit, I thought I'd leave this post here to say thanks.

Although I'll be hard at work on Abomi Nation for a good while, I'll never forget my dirty little roots at Newgrounds. This has been an incredible year for me, and I can't stress enough how the reception to Pound the Puss has really lifted my spirits. Thank you to all the voters, reviewers, and let's players that helped me have more faith in my original work.

Who knows? Maybe Pound will show his face again someday.

In the mean time, keep poundin' that puss, Newgrounds.

Hi, Newgrounds! I've been hard at work for the last several months getting a large project ready. I'm so happy to finally reveal Abomi Nation!

Abomi Nation is a game inspired by Pokémon's "Nuzlocke" challenge mode where death is permanent and teams are varied! In order to continue working on it full-time, I've started a small Kickstarter to help with funding.

If you like Pokémon, roguelikes, or just RPGs, then please give it a look! It has been designed specifically around playing the way that you want, and the final product should be able to give you wildly different runs. Collect Abomis and conquer Abomi Nation!

You can also check out an early alpha build of the game on itch.io before backing to play with some Abomis of your own.

Thanks for all the support, Newgrounds!

Hello, Newgrounds! Lon here, comin' at ya with a new, original game called Pound the Puss!


It's a naughty Point & Click Adventure game about a cat named Pound. It's much raunchier than anything that I've done before. I tried hard to build a world full of funny characters and situations, and it seems to be paying off! I'm overjoyed by the warm reception that such a crude game has received so far.


Thanks, Newgrounders!

I'm happy to announce the official return of my fan game, Pokémon Campaign.


Thank you to everyone who supported this project during its long (very long) development process. It is with great joy that I approach its final release -- for real this time -- and I hope it can entertain Pokémon fans across the world. Until its release, you can play the 2013 demo version of it here. You can also like us on facebook or check us out on IndieDB for more info.


Shuddering in anticipation like a Croagunk,

Hi Newgrounds! For those of you who have been following my upcoming game, Pokémon Campaign, you may have noticed a lack of updates for almost a half year. I'm sure you're sick of hearing it, but university and other commitments have prevented me from putting the finishing touches on the game. Well, I'm here to announce that Pokémon Campaign is now back on track, and is scheduled for a Summer 2014 release.

To commemorate this restart in production, I've opened a facebook page for Pokémon Campaign. Liking it on there will keep you up to date on development and its final release date.

If you prefer, you can also check the game out on IndieDB, where several exclusive screenshots have already been posted.

And as always, you can play Demo 0.3 right here on Newgrounds! Be sure to leave feedback before the final release; it's always appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy the full release of Pokémon Campaign!

Posted by OrangePylon - July 12th, 2013

Hi, Newgrounds. I've been hard at work on my new game, Pokémon Campaign. For those of you who don't know it, Pokémon Campaign is a Flash game set in the Pokémon world that allows for open-world exploration and real-time battles.
If you'd like to play the latest demo, you can find it right here through Newgrounds' fantastic new Project System.

Head up to Apricot City and press Space next to the Lass to accept your first mission!

I also just made a profile for it on IndieDB, which is a great site, and I hope to talk a little more in-depth about Campaign there in the future. You can also find a tutorial if this is your first time playing. I'll be updating the IndieDB page as we get closer to development, so be sure to check back.

As always, I am very open to constructive criticism. Although this will be the last demo before the final product, the game is still unfinished, and could benefit greatly from beta testers. I'd love to hear what you think.

Thanks for taking the time to play Pokémon Campaign's third demo, and I hope you enjoy it!
