Is this going to be a real Altparty with demos and all, or some knitting and soldering event? Not that I wouldn't like soldering.

We'd better get preparing something, in that case :)

Looking forward to another Alternative Party and seeing everyone again. Better keep the sauna available too :)

My first alt party was the 2nd (with pool, [Amiga!] and stuff). After that I went for a few, but it's been awhile. This year looks much more like we're coming.

Oh yes, cool to see it coming but it is coming one bit too fast!

Hope to have the dynamic demo compo there once again and finally some serious competitors there too. Also a strong hope is to manage to squeeze finally a good dynamic demo there too from our side...

compos will be announced shortly.

dynamic demo compo as a category has been struggling quite much lately with the lack of serious productions for it...
added on the 2013-08-08 21:49:18 by nosfe nosfe
compos will be announced shortly.

how soon?

Alternative Party 2013 compos

Theme: Hospital

< Realtime >
Alternative combined

The compo PC is a Windows 7 64-bit & Linux WUBI running modern high-end PC, with a NVIDIA GPU. A low-end Linux netbook running ChromeOS and Ubuntu 64-bit is also available (Acer Chromebook C7). All Linux entries must work with 10 minutes of tinkering or from a USB bootable distro. All and any other hardware IS allowed, provided you bring your own! (composite/component video/vga/hdmi output). Size limit is 512MB. But we'll still disqualify pure video players! (Wild compo is for those). As usual, we'd like to see demos that defy demoscene norms, that dare to experiment and push the envelope of digital art

64k Intro

64k size limit. Platforms as in the alternative combined compo

64k Cracktro

Like the intro compo, but the theme is "cracktro"
Especially we'd like to see REAL cracktros for actual cracked software

Beginner demo

50% of the group has to be in a new role, i.e. graphician doing music, musician coding FOR THE FIRST TIME
Or for true beginners with no previous demoscene productions
Same rules as alternative combined
All groups can give a short few minute presentation before their entry is shown, introducing the group to the audience
