Amongst all the nice compo entries from Revision 2012 in Germany last weekend were some made-in-the-USA contributions. Be sure to check out:
- Blockparty 5 Non-Invitation – code/music by Coda, gfx by Forcer and nrr. Invtro for Blockparty 5 (planned in 2011, but no official plan to date) released on its own. 9th place in the PC demo compo.
- Funky Fresh – code by Luis, gfx by Forcer. Interactive BD-J demo for a Blu-ray player! 2nd place in the wild demo compo.
- Peridiummmm – music/gfx by Coda. Demo for the STM32F4 microcontroller. 5th place in the wild demo compo.
Congrats to them. Let us know if we missed any!
If you follow Blackpawn’s Twitter feed, you probably know that he and the XPLSV crew have been hard at work on the Blockparty 2009 Invitation. If not, you are probably wondering where the invitation is. Well, the wait is over. You can now snag the finished demo on pouet.net, or sit back and enjoy the video capture on capped.tv. Be warned: this demo contains shiney awesomeness.
The NVScene Invite is out!
Farbrausch and Neuro’s very colorful invitation can be found at Breakpoint’s FTP and our US Mirror.
Edit: Video Capture [mp4] avalible.
The Northern Dragons have released a parody invitation for the upcoming NVision demoparty. The demo, released by “NDivia,” invites you to the “GinVision 2008″ demo party. The party features several wonderful competitions, including:
- 4k PC
- 4k GP32X Game
- PSP music dic^Hsk
- GBA 3D wild
- Euroweenie-eating contest
- Monkey Island Speedrun contest
- Acoustic Guitar Hero
- ATI Card throwing / skeet shoot
- Rob is Jarig Dance Marathon
In addition, attendees receive free booze and a Tesla supercomputer! Naturally, the entire invitation, including the imaginary demo party, is a joke. The demo’s author, Guybrush, writes on pouet:
To be totally clear: we <3 nvidia and are looking forward to nvision with incredible excitement, SO much excitement that we’re going crazy having to fabricate details of the compos and events. I think they deserve to be this arrogant towards their competitors… anyway, ALL of the blame for how much this sucks lies completely on us, Garg and Temis had absolutely nothing to do with this. I’m looking forward to CNS completely crushing us with the real invite. Actually I’m kind of scared.
You can see this hilarious trainwreck of a demo on pouet.net. There is also a thread on the pouet bbs.
Note: The real NVScene invite was presented at Breakpoint by Farbrausch and Neuro (I originally thought it would be Conspiracy, but they cooperated on an Evoke invite instead).Â We’ll link to it when it’s released.Â -phoenix
Seattle represent. The tenth, and sadly, last Textmode Demo Competition is over, and ND/XPLSV narrowly squeezed out a first place victory with their new demo, “Clockwerck”. Download and review it at Pouet.net.
