10 years this account stands... A full fecade, double digits of my name on this place. So I was in 7th grade when I discovered Newgrounds, but before the name that is Mace, there was DCXME01. So what's that stand for?
FUCK ALL. There's no abbreviation, but it sounds like some serial code for... something. Back then, I don't know how or why I signed up on this place, but it was probably the in-site achievements where you play games or watch some flash movies. Originally, that was the one intention: make flash-based content... Until I learned the hard way that flash movies & especially games is much harder than anticipated. So I did art instead, and it took me well over 6 years to get scouted due to the site's gatekeeping practices... Maybe to weed out the poor quality art made in MS Paint, but still.
I still do art, occasionally. But now I'm making some custom Re-Volt content, like this conversion from some certain skateboarding game that was recently announced to get a remaster. May not be the greatest THPS level, but like an annoying sidekick, it still sticks around.
