Competitions  

Graphics Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a static image. We accept photos, photoshop entries, pixelart, 3d renders, etc. All pictures will be shown with the latest version of IrfanView. Please hand in pictures with a flawless compression like PNG to ensure highest quality. If you can submit steps of the creation process, they will be shown.

Music Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a streaming music file. We accept mp3/ogg, tracked music formats without VST plugins (let us know what free Windows player you'd like us to use to play it), and even executable music (rejoice 4klang and oidos fanboys out there). Max length 7 minutes.

Short Film Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a short film. We accept 3d animations, step motion, machinima, home videos, etc. We accept whatever format VLC can play out of the box, try to keep it small though. Max length 7 minutes.

Interactive Compo

Interactive thing for whatever platform. Videogame, instalattion project, whatever. Present it live on stage or with a pre-recorded video.

One Scene Demo Compo

Executable realtime audiovisual scene of 60 seconds. If you are completely new to demo coding, or don’t have the time to make a full-fledged demo, then this compo is for you! Make it play out of a vanilla Windows 10 machine with latest graphics drivers. For other platforms please let us know what free emulator to use or bring your own hardware to play it.

Combined Intro/Demo Compo

Executable realtime audiovisual demo of maximum 7 minutes length. If you're size coding, we'll display the executable size on screen for people to judge based on that. Make it play out of a vanilla Windows 10 machine with latest graphics drivers. For other platforms please let us know what free emulator to use or bring your own hardware to play it.

Kids Corner   Some of our older demosceners face a hard decision between bringing their children along or not being able to attend. To facilitate your presence Inércia will try to be as kid friendly as possible, we're planning to have a console games corner, a board games corner and a private patio for your kids to play safely without wandering into the street while you catch up with old memories and friends. We hope this will convince you to show up, even if just only for a short visit, without losing points with your family.

We're open to other ideas to keep the kids entertained, please email us your sugestions or, even better, help us organize some.
     
Rules   In legal terms Inércia Demoparty is a closed doors private event for friends, ofcourse we welcome everyone interested in the demoscene and retro computing culture to show up, please pre-register so we know how many people we can expect to have. We reserve the right to refuse entry or kick out anyone with improper behavior such as racism, sexism, annoying drunks, infringment of Portuguese laws, etc. Remember we are a kid friendly event, please be sensible and minimize any explicit mature content whenever possible. We hope these simple rules won't stop you from having fun at Inércia Demoparty 2019.
