Very Important Party 2017 was held last weekend near Lyon, France. The results have been out for a few days but we're still waiting for a complete releases package. Individual files are slowly and spasmodically trickling in, we'll keep our eyes peeled for the rest.
[Update: all releases are now available on scene.org!]
Wap-Niak is an Atari 8 bit party that's been held yearly in Poland for the past few years. The 2017 edition just closed its doors and the results and some of the releases are now available. Stay tuned for the missing entries.
The site Flashtro had a lot of problems recently, with hosting trouble, old software and finally a failing database. So they started rebuilding from the ground up, and finally relaunched with a completely new site - and most of the old content, still.
If you're not familiar with Flashtro, you will find a great community there, focused on the cracking scene of yesterday. This includes modern webremakes, but also some retro-cracking and a lot of reminiscence about times past.
Almost since we launched Demozoo, art groups flocked to us, adding their artpacks to the site. It was common for these to be added as "packs", a category intended originally for demopacks. We've spent a good, long time thinking about how to best include artpacks, and have landed on a subcategory of Graphics. We've gone ahead and recategorized a bunch of entries already, but if there's any we've missed, please let us know. We can't wait to see what Blocktronics, Mistigris and the others have in store for the future!
