As part of the Wild Competition of SillyVenture 2k17, I have released SillyPack 2k16 with all Atari 8-bit released of last year's event. I achieved 5th place out of 20 entries. All releases on the compilation have been tweaked and fixed to run seamlessly on the real hardware and with the menu system.
In addition I released an entry called "I.V.I. - Incidential Vertical Interlace" in the 256 Bytes Competition. It is based on an effect I found by incident in 1992. It achieved 3rd place out of 8 entries. And right now as I type this text I realize it should have been "Incidental" not "Incidential". Funny what you learn when you look at things with a distance of, well, 25 years.
You can find the download for the binaries and the source in the Atari 8-bit Demos section. And like last year Paptak created a nice video of the whole event.
And if you think the party was crazy, look at what it caused on Pouet: A VCS demo leading the top of the month - What a blessing that I'm allowed to experience this in my life!
