Back In Time
The Wall: Last 10
The fifteenth issue of Scene World is out, reporting on both the PAL and NTSC c64 scene...
Paul Slocum, an 8-bit coder/composer working on Atari 2600 as well as the breadbox, released a new c64 tool available both in standard PRG format as well as onboard a cartridge (for sale). In the author's words, the tool "turns the C64 into a versatile synth that works with the common piano keyboard overlay".
Trailer Park Demos provides the invitation demo for Pilgrimage 2005, being held in Salt Lake City, Utah over the September 17-18 weekend. The invite demo's first half shows off an impressive clouds effect and 3d town, while the second half harkens back to previous invitations by invoking iconic demo effects from the past. Throughout, a decidedly different demo soundtrack provides the atmosphere.
Diversifying into games, Retro64 continues their active streak with the release of Spork64, coded by Fuzz with art by Moloch and newcommer Wildstar. Rumor has it the game contains some hidden levels and scary pictures... beware!
Another Assembly brings another representation of the North American PC scene at the annual event by Northern Dragons... who brought another 4k entry that manages to include work effort from a whopping eleven members. Gathering some praise by sceners in general, ND officially captured 4th place at Assembly '05 with their new gem, which may be a harbinger to the killer demo everyone is expecting them to release at Pilgrimage...
Another new demo by the oldskool Wanderer: multiple (plus hidden) parts, mellow presentation, and perhaps another step in the old legend's return to action and form... Note the availability of the source code as well!
At the bidding of its master, issue #31 has risen... Featured articles include coverage of the TinySID compo, scener opinion on the upcoming DTV v2, interviews with Cameron Kaiser and H.O/Science 451, news about the NTSC 4k Compo IV, and more. Selected article reprints from #31 will appear on the site within 6-7 days - enjoy the new edition!
As suggested by the title, the scene hasn't seen a demo by Wanderer for quite some time... but he is now the most recent oldskool scener to come back and release again with a 4k demo called 15 Years After.
Planning for the third installment of North America's only PC demoscene party has been underway and recently announced a revamped website and tentative dates. As the previous two, the party is held in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Stephen Judd has released an update of both Slang and his new cross compiler (written in C) for developing Slang programs on modern systems call xlang. Both Slang and xlang still produce programs that can run on the stock c64.May 21, 2005
