Live at Breakpoint

Welle:Erdball, Ultrasound and BASS are playing live at Breakpoint! Yeah, that's right, not only do we have last years kicking scene bands Ultrasound and BASS back to rock you, this year they will be joined by the well-known german electro pop band Welle:Erdball (who have strong roots in the C64 scene). Time for some serious dancing after a long demoparty day ;)

Several Updates

Several updates of note. I'll just go through them in order:

  • A near-final version of the time table is now available in case you're interested.

140 cheap beds booked

Wow, that really was a rush - just 4 hours after the launch of our Breakpoint Hotel Reservation System next to all cheap hotel rooms now are gone - over 140 beds got booked. We'll add more hotel rooms today (Tuesday) afternoon.

Amiga Compo Machine

We have an Amiga compo machine, so the final compo machine specs are available on the Amiga competitions page. Unlike the last few years, where our Amiga compo machine was a bit unstable to say the least, we won't record Demos from another Amiga if they don't run on the compo machine, so read this carefully if you plan on releasing a demo.

A few pre-party schedule updates
