Peter The Ant Day 2021!
Peter The Ant? Who's that?
During this year's Pico Day I made a game called Pico VS Peter The Ant.
(Both @TomFulp characters, unfortunately Peter The Ant isn't as well known as Pico is)
This ended up becoming a cult classic, tons of Newgrounds users have been begging me to host an official day of celebration for the amazing Newgrounds icon that is Peter The Ant. Well good news everyone! It's finally happening!
How do I participate?
Just upload anything with Peter The Ant in it! You can start working on something now, or start working on something on the day, doesn't matter when or how long, just upload it with the tag #PeterTheAntDay2021! Art, animations, games, music, etc. If voice actors want to put together some lines like @Jacob did for the original game, and upload it to the audio portal for people to use in their animations / games that would be dope. I don't care what the medium is, just upload it to Newgrounds on the 26th of December and tag it with PeterTheAntDay2021. Also use that hashtag or @ me on Twitter so I can see it all!
When is it?
December 26, 2021! This is the official day of celebration for Peter The Ant.
Why this date?
Well that's my birthday, and my birthday wish is to celebrate Peter The Ant with everybody here on Newgrounds!
Will there be prizes?
Since this is the first Peter The Ant Day, I've decided not to have any prizes. However, if this year's celebrations end up being substantial I'll definitely be throwing down some prizes next year!
What about the lore?
Forget about it! Tom said you can use Peter however you want! Come up with something cool and he might just make it canon!
Peter The Ant was originally an infamous and long forgotten scrapped character from Pico's School. Until one day when I decided to reimagine him during Pico Day 2021. I thought I was the only one that remembered and still cared about Peter The Ant until @ProscuittoMan messaged me about him. We talked on the phone for hours about how great Peter The Ant was, and still is... And so we took it upon ourselves to bring him back into the mainstream! We welcome you all to join us as part of the Peter The Ant fandom. And for this day of celebration I encourage everyone to have fun with it! Collab with people (maybe I'll open a Peter The Ant Discord server to help the shy users out with finding people to collab with? idk let me know if you'd be interested in that). Alright I've written up enough of a storm now, PETER THE ANT DAY DECEMBER 26 2021. BE THERE!
