I am very surprised we dont have a thread on this. The game and especially its mods have had a lot of popularity and ive seen some very cringe stuff in the fandom.

for those who don't know "Friday Night Funkin' is a free-to-play and open-source rhythm game. Developed by a team of four Newgrounds users, the game has a play style that is similar to Dance Dance Revolution and PaRappa the Rapper, and with an aesthetic reminiscent of Flash games popular in the early-to-mid 2000s"- Wikipedia
Here is the link to the game https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/770371. Its currently down because the newground servers couldn't handle the load.
Here is the link to the exe https://ninja-muffin24.itch.io/funkin. It is currently a week behind because ninja muffin in all his great thinking decided to have a newgrounds exclusive week 7 release for a little while.

Its made by 4 people mainly
Ninja muffin -https://twitter.com/ninja_muffin99
Phantom Arcade -https://twitter.com/PhantomArcade3K
evilsk8r -https://twitter.com/evilsk8r
kawaisprite -https://twitter.com/kawaisprite
Also apparently johnny utah -https://twitter.com/JohnnyUtahNG is also helping out based on the kickstarter and tweets.

They released a Kickstarter recently that raised the needed amount in under 30 minutes.

Ah yes, big newgrounds is astroturfing this game. You are right though, this thing came out of nowhere.
I don't even think it's bad at all. I'm just kinda surprised it's getting this much attention. The kickstarter is what I really double take at. I'll be really impressed if they make all the content they promise for how much they get.

Looks like another "flavor of the month" game. Not to imply it's bad by any means, but that it's going have much less attention by this time in May.
I think the Kickstarter is dumb, even if it's a well made game.
With how many mods are being made I wonder how long people will still play non-modded.

A hope I have is that this isn't ruined by some tranny mods they'll hire for diversity sake and becomes another "good thing ruined by retards". I've seen in the SJW art thread that it already attracted "certain" types of people but if creators don't become total fags I'll give two thumbs up.

One of those games that's decent and enjoyable on its own merits, and the music is incredibly catchy, but the fan following is incredibly obnoxious.

It's been steadily gaining popularity since November of last year. I'd say it still has about 6 months worth of relevancy to it. Maybe 4 months at the very least if it ends up sputtering out over the Summer.

This doesn't read like FOTM to me. I see less Among Us and more Skullgirls in this. Big community support thanks to non-standard internet famous people (Newgrounds) getting eyes on it, but then it'll drop off. Won't be forgotten so quickly or dismissed as cringeworthy, I think.

Rhythm games too hard for me cuz my brain is lizard-like so I'm not a big fan.

like Skull Girls the obnoxious fan base will likely be primarily community/politically motivated to support and astroturf the game to success.

"hey, I 'member Newgrounds, I was such a Newgrounder! Oh, Newgrounder made game? I love it!!!"

a lot of the fans seem to be young as well, maybe this help revitalize NG but I doubt it. These zoomers would also likely not be big fans of the problematic people working on these games anyway, as we've already seen the hot water Ninja Muffin got himself in with his very unNewGrounds groveling apology for his cringe game.

I'm glad these guys are getting recognized for their work but does anyone else feel like the popularity for this game is kinda astroturfed?
I think it's just a game with catchy music and fun character designs that took off because the devs know how to play a crowd. They do really good work, the animation and sound is on point and way beyond expectations for something like this. It becoming a celebration of newgrounds history along with its own thing is pretty fun.

I think the extreme ease of modability played a big part in it. This is easily the best mod:

10/10 mod right there.
