Entertainment value not guaranteed
We wanted to let you all know that we are still accepting remote entries for Pixeljam. You can submit your entry directly on the partymeister site for Pixeljam at party.pixelj.am up until 7pm U.S. Eastern Time, the same deadline for on-site entries. So continue to send your awesomeness our way!
For those who don’t like to read a lot, ALL compo submission deadlines have been moved to 7 PM EST!
In order to give people more time for their entries, we decided to move the deadline for the early submission compos (Freeystyle Music, Oldskool music, Photography) to 7 PM EST. Likewise, we moved the deadline for all of the other compos to 7 PM, too.
More time to get entries in is a good thing!
The partymeister system for Notacon is now online at party.pixelj.am! If you can’t pull it up yet, try again in about 30 minutes while everything rehashes on the DNS servers.
Machine specs have been finalized, so please check that out. In addition, we added a supported video mode of 1900×1080 for the demo category. Why, you ask? Well, because PixelJam will be shown on a brand new Viewsonic Pro8400 DLP projector, of course, which runs 1900×1080 natively. It does so at 4000 lumens, too. Thus, we should have one hell of a video system for this year!
We are pleased to announce that we have a few new sponsors and even more prizes!
ThinkGeek has graciously given us tons of prizes, including a lot of neat noisemakers, synthesizers and even some awesome emulators for oldschool Amiga and console fans. Likewise, Nerd’s Nook is making sure no winner leaves without a prize and is sponsoring vouchers for second and third place finishers in some categories.
Overall, this means PixelJam is now offering thousands of dollars in cold hard cash and prizes to winners at the party. Of course, you have to submit something to win! Well, you also have to be present, too, since we have to give you your prize! Even if you can’t attend, though, remember that we accept remote entries! Please see compo descriptions for details.
I made a minor rule change, fixed typos and clarified some wordings.
Here is the rule change.
- In the demo category, the maximum size was increased to 32MB (33,554,432 bytes).
I’ve been slacking a bit and finally put up a page listing demosceners who are attending. If you aren’t on the list, feel free to email me (email@example.com) so I can add you.
Or just reply to this post I suppose
Robert Bernardo from the Fresno Commodore User Group has graciously sponsored both the Oldskool music and Oldskool demo category for PixelJam. Thank you, Robert, for the support!
