It's Lovebyte this weekend, and I made a couple of size-coded intros for it. First up is an invite to another demoscene party: SESSIONS in C4 LAN 2023 SPRING, taking place in Shizuoka / Japan end of April. This one is 512 bytes, around 100 of which are for the music (don't wait for the drop!):
I also tried a bunch of 64 byte intros based on poking semi-structured patterns into ram that could double as audio and visual data. This is the one that I submitted to the 64 byte compo:
t=9::_::i=t^4 poke(i,51&(t*(i>>9)*(i%64)/♥)) t+=1/♥ sfx(i)goto _
Here's a variation that has more of a horror feeling:
t=19::_::i=t^4 poke(i, 0xdb&(t*(i>>7)*(i%64)/♥)) t+=1/♥ sfx(i)goto _
If you want to try these in a browser, you can copy and paste them into PICO-8 Education Edition.
I didn't have time to make 128 byte & 256 byte entries, which happen to be the two compos that have their own dedicated fantasy console sections! But I'll definitely be back next year -- it's great to have a whole party focused on size-limited prods, and that is inspiring so many great pieces of work. There are more events happening tonight (Sunday, UTC) and you can catch them live on twitch or archived on youtube. You can find a schedule on the lovebyte website. Good luck to those taking part tonight! <3
