I hope you guys enjoyed our April Fools joke! If you guys were wondering why it lasted 2 days instead of 1, well, some people enjoyed it so much that we decided to extend it by a day.

But yeah there are a few things I want to talk about here.

First of all, we've made a minor change to the submission rules.

"2.4.1 - Please try to ensure that your game is at least making an attempt to be an entertaining and productive contribution to the website. Games with little gameplay, lack of effort, or games made intentionally bad for the purpose of a joke are not allowed. When a game is bad on purpose, it's usually not fun for anyone, and your attempts at comedy will most likely come off as obnoxious."

What does this mean? Well, from this point onwards, we won't accept poor quality games, even if they are meant to be joke games. If the main joke of your game is that "it's bad" then maybe you should come up with a less overdone joke anyways.

This does NOT include games that have bad art, music, or controls, but have more going on than just "this game is bad lol funny". This is only for those Waligie type of games.

As for the other thing, it came to my attention that some people have been having some difficulty submitting stuff to the main site lately.

I think I figured out why.

The thumbnail for all submissions has to be 100x100. Don't make it more, don't make it less. For some reason, the site software doesn't throw out an error for that.

It's something I'll be looking into in the near future, but for now, here's your warning.

Anyways, that's all, keep making fangames I guess. And if you're not making fangames, I dunno, start making one!

As you guys know for a while we have been thinking about rebranding the site. While I was discussing possible new names we could use with the rest of the staff I've realized that we all have this burning passion for Russia, this glorious country full of culture and history. So we have decided to rename the site into "Mario Fan Games Gulag" to reflect this passion we have. In addition, the site will be translated into Russian, because it's a much better language than English. I hope you guys understand.

I suppose not much have happened with my life recently, with an exception that I've been digging a lot of car related subjects lately. And yeah, I now own a car that's fairly decent but I doubt most of y'all are interested.

Anyways, here are the updates:

In addition to that, some updates don't seem to have been pushed properly last time, so I am manually putting those updates here:

Sonic be like: "Fast"

So I saw the Sonic movie and it was pretty decent. It makes me hopeful for that Mario movie that will apparently come out in 2022, especially when considering that Detective Pikachu was also pretty good. Like, it really does seem like these big studios are now starting to understand how to make video game movies after all these years.

Though then again it's being made Illumination, the studio behind all of those throwaway minion movies, so who knows.

Oh yeah, updates too.

By the way, there will be a fart joke in the Mario movie, and they are going to make Luigi floss.

Fun With Despair
The MFGG Awards are now up for voting.
Jan 11 2020, 10:11 PM

That's right, we've taken the nominations, and we've put up the poll!

Now you, your friends, your family, and even your enemies, can all go and vote for your favorite [insert category here]. We're doing things a bit differently this year though, and allowing it to open up a bit through the use of this Google Form as our submission method rather than the old-school forum PM submissions.

Now, all you need to vote is a Google account, and not a forum account, meaning you mainsite (or discord)-only members don't have to register on the forums in order to vote in the awards.

As an FYI, you don't need to vote in every category, but we do request that you vote in at least five, just to keep contributions meaningful.

Voting ends on the 16th, so get to it while you can! Oh, and also here, take a mainsite update while we're at it.

For the first time, we’ll be using Google Forms rather than forum DMs, so anyone can enter. You can find more information about the voting process in this thread:

Ok guys, I did it.

So yeah I managed to fix the submission issue, which means that uploading games and such should NOT be an issue anymore.

I've also made some improvements to the main site software, the biggest one being that you can now upload screenshots for your games and hacks that aren't tiny. You can click the screenshots in the game pages to view them at their full sizes too. Consider this as an apology for the whole submission issue.

I suppose we can have some updates too.

Oh yeah you might also wanna refresh your cache for a surprise. :)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this special day.

Yeah uh also, if you try to update your submission or submit a new one and get an error, well, we are aware of that whole thing. I don't really know what's the cause of it, but don't worry, I'm looking into it and will post another update once I manage to fix it.

Anyways, here are some updates. Don't forget to play MTA3 :)

Oh and don't forget that our Secret Santa event will wrap up tomorrow! I hope you guys got your gifts ready.
