Best regards and happy coding! :)
August 15, 2008 - NVScene in one week!
Arranged in strong cooperation with Scene.org and the Breakpoint demo party, NVScene (demo reel) will be the biggest ever demo party in the US. The party will be held in San Jose, California from the 25th to the 27th of August.
In addition to the classic demo competitions, there will be a very strong lineup of seminar speakers, featuring Navis/ASD, Bonzaj/Plastic, Chaos/Farbrausch, IQ/RGBA, Mentor/TBC, Preacher/Traction and Pixtur/Still.
Scene.org will be represented by several staff members, so if you are in the area, be sure to drop on by!
June 27, 2008 - Early-bird tickets extended!
For enthusiasts, the deadline for getting your entry tickets cheaper has been extended to the 31st of July, so get yours today!
If you know you're coming, get your ticket now, so that we have a better view of how many visitors we'll get. It's much better than suddenly having a stampede at the door on the day of the party. :)
June 18, 2008 - Rule change
We'd like to announce an important change in the compo rules: The mandatory supported resolution has been changed to 1920 * 1080! Please make sure your demo is able to run in that resolution. And don't worry, the compo machine WILL be fast enough. (After all we're talking about NVIDIA here.)
