Well, can ya? Punk?
This year marks the spectacular Tenth Anniversary iteration of Jari Komppa‘s Text Mode Demo Contest. If you’re not sure what the text mode scene is all about, grab the official invitation demo to get a feel for what the judges will be expecting. The contest ends on December 12, 2007 so you’ve got about a month, and there are links to lots of text mode APIs and resources on the site so you don’t have to start from nothing. Now get out there and show us that text mode doesn’t begin and end with NetHack, soldier!
Wow, that stuff is really impressive.
tAAt also does the Dismount games – had lots of fun with those ^_^
i dunno about compos, though. i usually only want to enter when i’m bored of everything else that i’ve got going on – or the prizes are things that i really, really want. i like having way-old things come up again, like textmode graphics.. i think it helps people stay aware of the fact that there were no shaders or hardware accelerators not that long ago.
