Brutal, really looking forward to seeing the results from this (and if i can scrape some time together, i might have a try m'self! =-) Added a news item to the (hopefully) resurrected Oldschool Gaming news feed and forum about it and will plonk a What's Brewing item into Retro Gamer 113.
THANKS TMR!!!  :D :D :D We hope your entry, i'm sure it will be refreshing with your C64 experience ;)

And thanks to him, more reasons for the participants, the glory of appearing in Retro Games awaits!!! :)

I must resist...
I must resist...
I must resist...
I must resist...
I must resist...

Holy shit, that's a good damn idea ! There was sooo long time i wanted to try something like this , count for me at least for one entry maybe more... damn you i have so much other things to do  :-*

btw 16K limitation is a good, very good idea !
Don't resist fano!!! It's going to be fun ;)

Wow, a great idea!!! I always wanted to make a CPC game but wouldn't steal time from demomaking so far. The size limitation allows me to not be afraid that I have to create something huge. I could make something fun and simple. The deadline is better than my fears. Says me who has not started working on the CPC 30 years megademo part yet and plans to visit Forever and maybe bring a little CPC intro among other stuff. But it's my opportunity and I might give it a try.


Then again, there are some people who are only into game coding and others who are more into demo coding and would hardly participate anyway or they'd have to do something of high quality to participate and time does not permit. So, maybe a minority from the megademo participants would participate and we might see some more entries from the CPC gamedevs here. I think the deadline is ok.

That's the spirit Optimus;)

With respect to the demo and game scenes, i think both are complementaries... and it sucks, not having enough free time for all the compos, but that is life :P

What a great idea. I really like the 16kB limit, this should make for very interesting entries...

Anyway the wiki can help with it? Also, personally I'd like to help with prizes if you got something in mind...

Also, it might be a good idea to clarify who "we" and "us" is ;)

Of course, i was going to ask you in private to put the competition in the wiki ;)

Ok, in this moment the organization is TotO and me, an international team for an international competition.

I doubt it will be an issue, most people code either games XOR demos (xor 8-bit operating systems).
Haha, I do all of them :-D

Hello guys,

I split the topic - let's keep this thread for general discussion on the competition, and use the new one (under Programming) for relevant technical discussion :)

Fantastic news! :)
I wish i had programming skills so i can participate.

I would love to see some classic titles like River Raid, Galaxian, Galaga come out of this competition.
I still believe that i got my myopia from the green GT-65 monitor, but i can't prove it! :)

So, are there any coders with concrete interest in the compo yet?
