I hope AMIGA ROBOT shows up!
The chess compo is back! Bigger board, nicer pieces, real clock. Challenge the organizers in the main team game, or try your hand at some informal blitz. :-)

Just a heads-up: we seem to be really popular this year, heading for a *sold out event*. At the time of writing, there are only 38 tickets left. So if you're planning to come, now is the time to get yours!

Thankfully, you are allowed to send remote entries even if you can't get a ticket. You can't field remote teams for the street basket competition, though (but we would consider allowing your team if you showed up in person).

Also, does anyone know anyone in FIFA? It would be nice having one of those VAR buses for said competition…

Live compo signups is open! Head here to sign up for Live Coding, Live Graphics or the now infamous Live Music compo!

I didn't know about this. How cool! Perhaps I should visit Solskogen sometime. I love chess and certainly I would play some blitz games. Or even bullet chess which I love to play. Do you play, for instance, 1 minute + 1 second of increment for each move?

1+1 is a bit tricky with physical pieces; they get knocked down so easily. :-)

What are the actual deadlines for remote entries? Maybe I'm oblivious but I can't find them on the website anywhere.

I HAVE to make this party in person sometime. Living in the demoscene boonies kinda sucks.

Stream is sort-of live; no content or audio yet, but it will come up in time for the opening ceremony (which is ever so slightly detailed).


Mixed 50/60 Hz as always!

There was an error in the HLS URLs (they were missing their port numbers). If you were having problems with iOS devices, give it a reload! :-)

In case anyone else is baffled, the compo deadlines are on the INDEX page, not the compos page where it says to mind the deadlines. Keep scrolling down. (Thanks Ramon. :P )
