Exactly what is says on the tin.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is nominated for Best Independent Game in the Spike 2012 Video Game Awards!

Do you guys even NEED to be reminded how my Newgrounds voice actors are in this!?

Even Toonami thinks we're cool, so vote for us, should you feel that we deserve it!

...Especially since Journey is competing in like 3-5 other categories. Oh that blasted pretty-ful game...

And we're invading Heroes of Newerth 'cause what were the odds...!

So I guess I'm gonna be in Heroes of Newerth on the 28th, as an alternate avatar to Pestilence! Buncha gals get cute, sexy, and action-y characters. Me? I get a BUG!! Who's SEXY and CONFIDENT IN WHO SHE IS!! And a QUEEN!! She's totes progressive u gaiz.

But I DID say that a chunk of the Dust AET was in Heroes of Newerth too, soooo...!

Newgrounds Name - Dust Character - Heroes of Newerth Character(s)

Hnilmik (ME) - Fidget - Queen Serecta
Lucien - Dust - Grinex & Cupid Succubus
Darkwolf - Ahrah - Gideon
ShudoRanmaru - Ginger - Heavy Metal Rhapsody
Kay Challis - Oneida & FloHop - Phoenix Ra & Clockwork Archer
Rikachu - Corbin - Pearl
Shock-Dingo - Blop - Frankie Pebbles
Omahdon - Fuse - Red Raja
Rina-chan - MaMop - Seductive Announcer

And a demo reel has been made at last...

I've been doing animal noises since I was a kid, and lo and behold, it's been a skill that booked me various voice acting gigs, from animations to video games! I don't just make noises; I bring critters to life, whether they're cats, birds, dogs, foxes, monsters, dinosaurs, giant insects, aliens, and so on! So it was about time that I condensed a fraction of my ability down to a minute, leaving what else I can do to your imagination~

Long time listeners might be able to pick out 3-4 of those characters~!

And that's my update for now!

Fun Fact: I voiced in over 200 released projects. It happened like a month ago. Whhooooaaaa... /kept track to measure her progress and things just got insane

Woah.. I'm amazed, I think even Rina-Chan herself never got as much publicity as you have (or perhaps we are all just left in the dark). Makes me wonder how many project offers you had to turn down in order to maintain your sanity.

You should be proud, you've reached a mountain top that some can only dream to achieve... So how does it feel up there? It as great as we've been told?

Hnilmik responds:

Rina-chan is usually too busy to update much, but she does keep her Facebook followers in the loop! She's the lead and other main characters in various video games and anime right now!

@@; As for me, I've had to turn down quite a few projects, sadly... Priorities do that! Hopefully once I actually get my several-years-promised character demo reel done, I might be more available!

Wow, it most be such a great honor to even reach Toonami!

Hnilmik responds:

x3 It's a special feeling, having Steve Blum mention the name of your character and talk about the game you worked on~

a victory for newgrounds indeed.
it's great to hear good news progression instead of the usual depressed kind.

wonderful job!

Hnilmik responds:

Thankoo~ Yeah, depression ain't fun to write about, so I try not to!

And another point for Newgrounds~!

Kim, I'm proud of you, and I think this is all really cool, but would you please stop posting these? They make me feel inadequate about how little I'm doing in comparison. (I'm just messin'; keep doin' what you're doin'.)

Hnilmik responds:

;P I've been doing Newgrounds updates on my voice acting activity for YEEAAARRRSSS, all 4-5 of them! Nothing changed~ They're either "short" and frequent (every 2 weeks, sometimes had filler like me talking about art and school) or long and delayed (every 3-5 months, with tons of roles and whatnot), depending on how busy I am.

I suppose in the end, just stick with anything long and hard enough and you'll go places! Thanks for your support, 'cause I wouldn't have made it anywhere if people weren't encouraging me!

Awesome. I loved Dust, though my only complaint is it was too short but considering how small a team worked on it, it's a pretty good size for what it is, I love it still! I'm hoping there's a sequel, after seeing the ending there's a possibility, and I'm sure with all the money made it's possible. The characters are cute, well voiced, and memorable. I've been waiting for a game like this since Klonoa 2. It isn't quite as good as Klonoa, but pretty close. The story is original, and interesting. There's so much to say about it haha. I would much rather see something like this than the generic majority of games that easily get stale after hours of playing. Journey was ok but honestly I easily got bored with it, I felt it was lacking depth as far as what kind of places you saw. I think Dust is easily deserving of the title, I voted :) Good job voicing Fidget btw, I liked the humor lol

Hnilmik responds:

Yaaaaaaaaayyyy~~ I'm glad you enjoyed the game, the writing, and our performances enough to vote! You get all of the hugushibushu's~!!

I still need to play Journey myself. I just know that it has a pretty darn good rep and it's a beautiful game.
