LayerOne Demo Party 2023!

Posted on 14 May 2023 (0)

Celebrating it’s sixth year running, the LayerOne Demo Party is back again for another year of awesome demos! Demos are a combination of programming challenge, artwork, and music. You’re given specific hardware with any number of restrictions – code size, available memory, processor speed. Your goal is to output audio and video that pushes the limits of what is considered possible with such limited hardware.

Main categories for this year’s Demo Party:

  • LayerOne Demo Board: Create a fantastic audio/video experience using a LayerOne Demo Board!
  • ANSI: Create an awesome 80×23 ANSI art image using the standard 16 colors!
  • Wildcard: Anything goes! Props given for creative use of hardware or software!

Enter your Demo or ANSI art now! Submit via the PARTYTIME submission system!

The LayerOne Demo Board is a 16-bit PIC24F chip with 96K RAM, 256K Flash/ROM. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? There’s many nuances to learning about the board and exploring what is possible in such limited hardware. Get inspired by watching a previous year’s demo party! Need some additional inspiration? Check out some award-winning demos on the Commodore 64, Atari XL/XE, and an 8-bit Atmega88 microcontroller. Not enough? What about a full, three and a half minute 1080p HD demo written in just 4kb of code? Check out elevated by Rgba & TBC.
