Support Creators: Gaming

Newgrounds is now Web Monetized!

source: features user-generated gaming, filming, audio and artwork composition. Play some of your favorite games and support one of Coil's favorite community of artists, game developers, musicians, voice actors and writers on the web!

Newgrounds is a place where anyone can share their original animation (swf, mp4, etc), games (swf, html5), art, music, writing and voice acting.

Newgrounds was the first website ever to allow the instant publishing of games and movies, with the launch of a Flash Portal in 2000. We followed with an Audio Portal in 2003 so that musicians could team up with animators and game developers. An Art Portal was introduced in 2009 because a lot of people in the community also had art to share. We strive to inspire people to create and collaborate with other talented individuals.

About Staff Picks

Coil Staff Picks highlight some of the team’s recent favorite web monetized posts and content. The staff’s selection guidelines are meant to be inclusive of all genres and content and limited to original, high quality creations. All selections are listed in random order.

Coil Creators earn money for their content (free). The only requirement is that your site or the third-party platform you use to host your content allows you to add a meta tag (a Coil payment pointer).

As a creator, you can monetize your video pages, personal websites, Coil blog posts, and more. Monetizing your content allows you to receive payment streams as Coil Members actively view your content.

Coil Subscribers directly support creators and enjoy unlimited access for to Coil Creator content for $5/month.
