Come to the party!
Skrolli Party is a demo party dedicated to the makers and readers of the Skrolli magazine! The party is held for the third time on Saturday 28th September 2019, this time in Epilä, Tampere. Editors and writers get in for free, others are expected to bring a prod to the compo. The party place has a capacity of approximately 40 people.
The invitation intro is available to download for Linux and Windows. A 64-bit operating system is required. If you don't have a suitable execution environment, you can also watch the intro below (Youtube link).
There will be two scene compos at the party: realtime and wild. Realtime compo entries must be traditional executable programs that produce images and sound in real time. The platform can be old or new, but if your entry doesn't run on a modern PC with Windows or Linux operating system, please contact the organizers for arrangements to run it.
Wild entries can be anything that can be presented with a screen and/or loudspeakers. And entry can be a picture, prerendered animation, a piece or music or a video of a live performance. Bring something from outside the box and surprise us!
The winner of the realtime series will receive an Ultimate 64 Elite. The winner of the wild series will get a Lego Mindstorms starter set. The three best entries from each category will also get trophies.
Specs of the compo machine:
- Core i7-6700k @ 4 GHz
- 16 GB RAM
- GeForce RTX 2070
- Windows 10
- Debian Unstable
Entries will be presented with a 1080p projector. If you want to bring your own hardware to present your entry, please contact the organizers so we can ascertain its compatibility with the A/V equipment at the party place.
Entries must be delivered no later than 18:00 on the party day. Acceptable methods of submission are USB drives and URLs. You may test your entry on the compo machine before the compo if you wish.
Remote entries are also welcome. In this case we recommend you send at least a preliminary version well in advance to avoid unexpected compatibility problems. Contact information is at the end of the page.
Entries will be published on this site after the party unless the author expressly forbids it.
There will also be a gaming compo at the party. The game and platform will be announced at the party place.
