I'm not exactly going anywhere, but this is still a sort of goodbye.
You may or may not know me--I've been on Newgrounds for a while, and I don't intend to stop coming to Newgrounds anytime soon.
However, I've decided to start in a new direction. I've been JonBro for quite some time now, since early 2005, and I feel like I've finally outgrown the name and the work that's attached to it. I've also come to terms with the fact that, sadly, most of the things I really want to make nowadays wouldn't really be fit for Newgrounds. I've slowly grown a tremendous passion for developing games that wouldn't find the right audience on a web browser.
I made a news post in June describing that I was planning on making a new name for myself by the end of the year. Due to schoolwork getting in the way, I haven't prepared as much for this seemingly insignificant announcement as I would have liked, but my new online persona is Jonochrome.
The change to Jonochrome feels like a major change to me, because it means that I'm separating everything I've made in the past from what I'm working on now. I want everything I make from here on out to be better-planned, more refined, and probably more sizable than what I'd made prior, and this more professional, less kiddy-sounding name is one way to re-brand my work and motivate myself to try harder.
So, this news post will probably be my last public activity as JonBro on this site. I'll only be using this account to respond to any JonBro-related messages I receive.
Regarding this decision, I'm ashamed of two things: I was never able to finish Pain on the Brain 4, and I never found the motivation to finish a certain lengthy, dramatic drawn Mario parody I started long ago (which I was honestly quite proud of). When I find time, I'll likely post the remains of those two projects on a section of my new site.
Thanks, Newgrounds. I'm sorry that I won't be doing much of anything here anymore. You've shaped a very, very huge part of my life, and I don't have the slightest idea where I'd be without you.
