What is the Demoscene?

The Demoscene is an international computer art subculture focused on producing demos: self-contained, sometimes extremely small, computer programs that produce audio-visual presentations. The purpose of a demo is to show off programming, visual art, and musical skills. Demos and other Demoscene productions are shared at festivals known as demoparties, voted on by those who attend, and released online.

Expect the usual Demoscene activities:

  • Demoparty
  • Compos (Competitions)
  • Talks
  • Retro Museum
  • Demo's on display
  • Harware old and new (C64, Amiga, Atari etc)
