that's a naughty Yoda
Hy FolkZ,

One of those weird questions from an old man. The Releases may it a demo or a game. Is it necessary to deliver it as VIDEO and if it´s necessary, which Format MP4 is suitable ?

please let us know so we can prepare something without any hurry.

thanks in advance

I am preparing a 140-but-secretly-280-BPM track.

* Entries must not have been released before, and they must be handed in before each deadline.
* There will be a preselection if there are too many entries for a compo (for details see here).
* You have to agree that we'll spread your contribution (e.g. through scene.org or other sites).
* You may submit a screenshot for your release.
* The organizers reserve the right to make changes to the competition rules and to disqualify any entry which is not suitable for the compo for any reason. This includes anything violating German or international law.
* Deadline for all entries: Tuesday, 09 August 2021 - 00:00:00 CEST

Rules for the blocks


* You can use any tool you want.
* "no rules".
* All pictures will be shown with the latest version of IrfanView.
* Please hand in pictures with a flawless compression like PNG to ensure the highest quality.
* If you can submit steps of the creation process, they will be shown.
* Pixel/Handdrawn/Photo/Ansi/Ascii anything goes
* In case you submit textmode graphics, please hand in both the original format file and a PNG capture.


* Maximum showing time: 10 minutes. The organizers reserve the right to fade out entries before 10 minutes have passed, if necessary.
* You should prepare your material in 16:9 screen ratio. If you record a video of your entry please try to provide an MP4 in (at least) 1920x1080 resolution.

Oldschool entries recording:

If you're preparing an oldschool entry, you might want to know that we can record entries from real hardware on the following oldschool systems:

* Commodore 64, 128 (incl. VDC), Plus/4. VIC-20 (also memory expanded)
* Amiga OCS/ECS, Amiga AGA/060
* Atari ST (1MB) and STE (4MB)
* Amstrad CPC (6128, CRTC-1)
* MS-DOS PC (Pentium 1-class)

If your entry runs on any of the platforms above, you don't need to provide a recording with your entry, we can take care of it. You still can, if you want, it's just not mandatory. But if your oldschool entry is NOT running on any of the platforms above, and you CANNOT provide a recording yourself, we can probably still help, but please reach out, so we can work something out.

Amstrad CPC note: this system is notorious for abusing the video signal, which makes it somewhat challenging to record. Please provide a test version of your entry as soon as possible so we can test if it works as expected with the recording chain.

This being the year of wicked ideas, we really are hoping to see you "play the game" and connect to other sceners to surprise us with unconventional compos - remember that we call it a compo if only FOUR participants manage to have a common *thing* going!

However, we also can’t wait for the classics, so bring your size coding skills, dig out your favorite oldschool plattform, make a music video or bring on your 3D graphics (as seen at revision) - this is the year where everything goes!

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SIGN TO GET SOMETHING DONE (but haven’t really had the drive to dive into it because there was no deadline) CONSIDER THIS THE SIGN - You can do it and we sure are not going to stop you!

And now to the scary part:

we think we have everything in place and you can start uploading your releases for névoke
strating now. you need to login/register with sceneId to create an account.

use the "custom option" field and message to the organizers if you want to suggest competitions or have something special to say along with your entry. if you are having problems uploading, feel free to contact us through the usual channel.

this page will also be where voting will happen during the party. so maybe also already create your account using sceneId, completely free of charge, no strings attached.

looking forwart to what all of you will come up with!

If there is one benefit of not having a physical party, then it's the ability to reach out and connect to fantastic artists on the other side of the world 😌
With this in mind, we took a leap of faith and went out to ask someone we had in mind from the very beginning. So today we are SO HAPPY to finally announce this year's music act...

✨ Get ready to dance, drink and be merry to the fantastic chibi-tech, everyone! ✨

Preemptively honing her craft in the late-80s with an Amiga, a copy of D.O.C. SoundTracker, and various swapdisks filled with european prods that her dad took home... chibi-tech slowly but surely turned into a swift & versatile trackmaking maestro in that fresh scener flair despite the hurdles of a nearly non-existent demoscene in America. She especially honed her skills in chiptunes, which she was able to turn into a legitimate full-time career. Now living in Tokyo Japan, she is involved in the more technical aspects of gamedev ー with her audio works featured in both modern console games... and even built-in within console hardware itself.

And yet, chibi-tech still finds the time to napalm the dancefloor with her preferred weapons of choice: two NES consoles hooked onto a mixer. She's eager to set your aural senses ablaze with even the most rudimentary of sound generation arsenal.

Got any plans for weekend that involve having fun outside? No? Good! Have fun inside instead!

☠️ Reminder that the deadline for your entries is 09 August - 00:00:00 CEST, so you better start starting, finishing or thinking about those things NOW!☠️

Since we kinda messed up the deadline announcements (after all, it's been a two years where time seemed to not behave like usual anyway) we're now changing all deadlines to TUESDAY, 10. AUGUST, 0:00

What a time to be alive! Now get back to work - we believe that YOU can do it!

Do you like it when people vote for your entry? And you even have a video recording device in your pocket? Fantastic!

We miss seeing your faces, hearing your voices and want to give you a chance to spread the hype, or simply greet the people of névoke and make us smile (or laugh, even).

For that, we would like you to send us a short and sweet "VOTE FOR ME" videoclip that we will then play in a block after the compos. No need to put on a high end video production - just make sure that it meets the following requirements:

LENGTH: between 10 and 15 seconds
FORMAT: .mp4 or .mov would be awesome!
CONTENT: we won't play your clip if we feel like it's offensive (the usual small print, you know the rules)

WHERE TO UPLOAD: We have enabled a "Vote for me - Videos" pseudocompo in the party system, so head to https://party.nevoke.eu/, log in with your SceneID and upload it there!

Important: We'll show ONLY ONE VIDEO PER CONTESTANT (not per entry), so don't go overboard

We are looking forward to your submissions - and bringing the people of névoke closer together, if only on our screens 💜
