superogue - 16:24 20 December 2020 #

Join us in a celebration of the smallest with a dedicated sizecoding demoparty/event, held on the weekend of 12-14th march 2021

We'll be online streaming with different size competitions from the smallest to the even smaller. From 256 pixel graphics and nanogame competitions to bytebeat music competition.

Or what about cool size-coded related seminars to get you started, Roundtable, DJ Sets and many other events?

This is the one event where size does matter! Don't miss it! Open to all platforms.

Nice concept for a demoparty!

Ofcourse no graphics compo is complete without an awesome exocet entry ;-) Pick your resolution: 16x16, 32x8, 8x32 or 21x12

Yes, this should be a fun challenge so I'm planning to come up with something!

Good news!

Due to the amount of interest (we've got over 70 entries confirmed already across all competitions) we've decided to have a dedicated lo-end 128 byte intro competition as well!

Also, we've finalised our choice of 16 color palettes for the 256 pixel graphics compo, they are:

https://lospec.com/palette-list/pico-8
https://lospec.com/palette-list/commodore64
https://lospec.com/palette-list/combi-16

Suggested Dimensions for your 256 pixel image are:
16x16 , 32x8 , 8x32, 18x14, 14x18, 21x12 and 12x21 pixels.

Now show us what you can do in 256 pixels or less!

Haha, already went ahead and made stuff. Then realized we need to use a pre-made palette. Perhaps it would've been sensible to allow just any colors as long as there are no more than 16 used (even though that might have disadvantaged some folks, who pixel on 8bit machines). :P On the other hand, thanks for providing importable palette files, works just fine in paint.net. :)
