We are excited that Mindcandy has agreed to provide the brand new Mindacandy 3 blu-ray for the top 3 winners in the Combined Demo category at PixelJam!

Their work is a labor of love and a great way to introduce the demoscene to people not familiar with it.  It’s also a great resource if you don’t have time to sit on pouet all day.  If you want the best of the best, check out Mindcandy!
