Lovebyte 2022 demoparty: 11-13 february 2022

category: parties [glöplog]
The biggest party of the year with the tiniest productions is back !!!

For three days, from the 11th to the 13th of February 2022, we will be bringing you all sorts of wonderful small demos, music, competitions, livecoding and discussions, all online at https://www.twitch.tv/lovebytedemoparty. And we invite you to join us.

With intro competitions ranging from as little as 8 bytes all the way up to 512 bytes, tiny executable graphics and games, pixelart and bytebeat music. That's wild, right? You'd better get hyped! And if you're a seasoned sizecoder, stop rolling your eyes at this hyperbole and start working on a prod right now!

Don't miss the Nano awards on Friday night, celebrating the past year of sizecoded productions, and livecoding into the evening with the Byte Jam on TIC-80. On the Saturday and Sunday competitions on all platforms, and Byte Battles on TIC-80 along with top class DJ sets, await you. Check out our website at https://www.lovebyte.party for the latest information, time schedule and how to join.

The experience culminates on Sunday night with the Byte Battle finale and the competition prize ceremony.

How much graphics, sound, animation and creativity can you fit into a tiny filesize?
How much love can you fit in a byte?

At Lovebyte 2022 we are going to find out!

I'll just bump this thread because this is far more important than what sceners think of scientific consensus.

@HellMood - there is still a lot of sleepless nights till the deadline :-)

@ilmenit, true, but so far we have been collectively code golfing flags and shit. I lack motivation to do a "true" 256. It's just too big ^^
added on the 2022-01-31 08:49:01 by HellMood HellMood
how many flags can you fit in 256b though? :P
@mantatronic .. arguably 12 or 13, but as 256 pixel GFX ^^

But yeah, going for all the 2 and 3 stripe flags horizontally and vertically in an animation in 256b, that's an idea. But you will exclude people with more detailed flags, and they're not gonna like it ;)

hellmood: by rearranging you could add claims for monaco, poland, ukraine, luxemburg, estonia, spain, nigeria and probably a bunch more :)
