- One of the most interesting and vital Flash-related movie and game sites is NewGrounds.com, also well-known for harboring some of the reprobates at The Behemoth behind Castle Crashers, and a 'best of January post' runs down some really interesting community-made Flash games.

The top game of the month, as it turns out, is the distinctly sinister Pandemic, which is "...is a game where you get to evolve you own biological virus and wipe out mankind!" A bit like the biological version of DefCon, essentially. There's so much raw experimental gameplay coming out of scenes like this - which I find exciting.

Also looking cool is Seven Deadly Sins, a British Flash adventure in which: "Mild mannered Ed has been challenged to depart from his mild English ways and commit the seven deadly sins. Enter the quiet English town of Gorpsdale and use your skill, guile and ingenuity to find suitable ways of breaking each sin."

[I will also note in passing the epic Epic Flash movie mash-up Queers Of War, which is incredibly sophomoric and some might even say homophobic (others would say couched in heavy irony), and "...also attracted a threatening letter from Epic's legal representation, although the threat was withdrawn after a chat with the VERY COOL people at Epic." It's nothing if not interesting.]
