64k is dead?

category: general [glöplog]
only 3 64ks (actually, one) at breakpoint 2008, what is it? almost nobody but conspiracy (and still maybe?) don't make it anymore.
your predictions?

I think some nice stuff will be released at Evoke.

4 is the new 64.

I'm calling the bypass hq.
First I was thinking that the quality bar got too high and everyone got scared, but this is already taking too long for that. So I'm confused as well.

And there were horrible 64k in Assembly 2007(but they should keep doing them when its the only way to learn).

64kb intros were like demos, except more "boring work". 4k intros have more of an instant gratification factor i guess, and they don't have to involve a large team either. less asset-creation, as they say in the biz :)

64k is a stupid limit anyway, lets move it up to 177k.

i personally feel very good about 64k's being bad - just means you can win a party and get scene.org awards with average ones :)

just like the good ol' days! :P
I see dead people discussing dead topics but still, trying to argue.
only 3 64ks (actually, one) at breakpoint 2008

This is the point where we all play "guess today's arbitrary reason why the other four (or six) don't count as actual 64ks", right?

actually i always prefered the number 42 over 64 so i don't care too much :P

I guess everyone got bored of stuffing more and more content in 64k and ran out of ideas after that.

Personally, I'm waiting for a v2 update to get back on track. ;)

Maybe because too many people spend their time complaining about the lack of 64k instead of making them themselves, arguing about what prod is overrated, what prod should have been 4k instead etc...

Considering the hassle a 64k can be when you try to do something interesting that does't look like it was generated with some tool, I guess some people had enough and now prefer focusing on something else.

64k is dead because Equinox didn't release for a while ;)

rumours go equinox switched to demos as well ;)
zoom: Don't be confused, make more 64k's instead!! I'm waiting for more stuff from you! (and from Keops!!) :D

I will, no worries :)

And I hope 64k compos will be still around by then cause we need easy money! (not)
