Oric @DemoSplash party

Post by Dbug » Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:07 am

This weekend there was a demo party at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA.
http://www.demosplash.org

Demo parties in the USA are not that common, but that one pushed the things farther than many, they did not manage to have real oldskool machines and show demos on them, including a real Atmos with a Cumulus.

You can see the presentation of the Oric computers on the video from the stream at https://scenesat.com/video/13 (starts a 1:30)

It is indeed ;) A few little historic mistakes, but still a good thing. And I suppose having your demo played on such a huge screen overseas must be a pleasant experience ;)

It mostly made me think that maybe I should spend a few hours here and there to see if I can't get this damn fractal and end scroller to be faster, because they are painfully slowwwwwww.

I was aware of DemoSplash since a few people I follow on podcasts and Twitter have been mentioning it in the past few weeks but have not had a chance yet to look at the videos.
It is really nice that they talked about the Oric and I will definitely have a look.

In passing, I might actually go next year, Pittsburg is actually not too far from Montreal (in North American terms! :D)
But more importantly, my effect(s) will certainly be ready by that time so I could have something to present, which would be even cooler.

Any other candidates willing to participate? ;)
