Hello, my name is Jason, also known as NessMasta. This is an official Newgrounds site for my studio, Galaxal Studios, which I founded several years ago. I have plans to make some great things, such as Nintegaball and many more.

Man, it's been a few months since last being here and Newgrounds changed their website completely, which I'm REALLY diggin' it so far.
Anywho, just found out that a buddy of mine, Alvin-Earthworm, retired from sprite animation and cancelled 'Super Mario Bros. Z'. I had a feeling that this time would come for the series as the last time I chatted with him that he had his mind set on other things and really didn't have time for SMBZ. But nonetheless, it's sad to see this series cancelled, or at least put on hold until further notice. I know that this series is what got me fully hooked to Newgrounds and inspired me as it did with many others out there. Also, this is NOT an April Fools joke this time around.
Luckily though, AE mentioned to me several years ago the first season's story and how it would end, along with season two's villain, however, I'm not really going to mention that here as he might continue the series in the future when he has the motivation again.
Anyways, I wish my friend the best of luck on his endeavors and hopefully speak with him on instant message soon.
And, with SMBZ cancelled or put on hold until further notice, some people here or at other places on the interwebs knew I planned on making the 'SMBZ: Desumacchi' fighting game. With the recent news from AE, the game could share the same fate as the series did; however, this could pose as a great opportunity and advantage sometime down the road to semi-revive the series with a game and to maybe inspire/motivate AE again to continue the series.
Well, with that said, I've been alright here. I finally got a new job after 9 months of being laid-off from my previous job, so that's a new year's resolution that's complete. And with a new job means that I can save up for a couple more things to get a little studio going so I can make some progress on works I've been wanting to do, including Nintegaball.
With my recent purchase of the Wacom Cintiq 24HD back in late January (which is a pretty damn awesome tablet btw), I've been working on a photo realistic look of what my version of Mario will look like in 'Nintegaball'; however, the art drawing is taking a bit longer and a little time consuming than I thought. So I might go ahead and just start character drawings in a style that I would like to go with when I save up for ToonBoom Animate Pro.
Not only I'll have 'Nintegaball' in the pre-production area this year, I plan on pre-production of a graphic novel based on a superhero that I've had on my mind and wanted to fully flesh out since when I was in 7th Grade, and that's been more than 10 years ago.
