Welcome to the demo of the year 2014 competition

image After last year's impressive revival of the demo of the year idea, nicely organized and well packed by axis and yazoo, we wanted to take over the orga for the 2014 competition.

After some months of delay we are more than happy to finally declare the demo of the year competition for 2014 officially open!

Yes we are a little late, but now after the amazing demoshowdown at the x-party there still might be some room for a decent end of the year competition. So take a chance and be part of it.

Code, pixel and compose the hell out of our beloved machine and delight us with your creativity. Give us all your Acid pills, Dots, Tech-Techs, Golcs and Plasmas.

This time we agreed on going back to the roots by keeping the parts as secret as possible to not spoil the impact of the final result and to have some surprise element on the audience.That might sound a little bit old fashioned in the modern age, but hey we are old fashioned, aren't we?

The compo is over, congrats to the winners and thanks to all who took part.

rules

The entry has to be exclusively done for the demo of the year competition and not have been released before.

The top 10 parts will be released to the public as a demo of the year compilation at a party close to the deadline. Most likely Revision or such an event, if possible.

Each entry will be shown by name and group in a public list when sent in, so people can see who already took part in the compo. The files will not be released to the public at this point.

The entry has to be handed in by one person who is also in charge for managing any changes that have to be done to get the entry fixed if bugs occur.

The org has the right to disqualify entries if they break the compo rules, are against common taste, are of a racist nature or a fake entry.

If there are too many entries by one crew, the org team is allowed to select entries

The entry is not allowed to be spread before the final product! voters have to keep the files secret.
