Outline Online is a demo party, an event which takes place over the course of several days. It is a place where people compete, and celebrate the creative use of computers. If this is your first encounter with Outline Online or demo parties in general, you would do well to read up on the matter on wikipedia.
Outline Online started in 2004 as a shadow party organised by and for the Atari demo scene to coincide with Breakpoint (one of the largest demo scene events held annually in Germany). Word got out and the unique atmosphere started attracting people from other platforms. Today, Outline Online remains an Atari party at heart but welcomes all platforms to mingle, agree and disagree.
When faced with strict social distancing regulations in May 2020 by the Dutch government due to a certain worldwide pandemic which you may have heard about, Outline decided to postpone it's physical event to November 2020, and to organize an online event at the originally scheduled Ascension day weekend date. This website is about the online event on May 22-24, a website for the November physical Outline edition will be published in early June.
Sofa World with large format projection screen, suitable audio, and realistic fluid dynamics, our channel on Twitch.tv for that genuine couchscener feeling, and last but not least: a pond for the PMP duckies.
Your fridge serves shockingly cheap drinks and snacks. To top that off, there's cheap coffee, tea and breakfast to be found in your kitchen. Sorry, no food tickets this time!
We'll be kicking it newskool this Ascension day weekend, using Wuhu for uploading and voting. The only incentive we have is to cater to Sofasceners −please stop asking for video feeds, the link is to the left.
Although Outline has traditionally offered a wide variety of competitions, due to the nature of this online edition (and the challenges it imposes on the organisation) we have limited the line-up to demo, 128 byte intro, music, graphics, photo and animation. All these competitions are multi-platform.
Atari ST(e) entries will be shown on real hardware. We have emulators installed for most other popular systems, or bring your own hardware.
A ticket gives you the good feeling that you supported creating our SofaWorld location, Twitch stream and Discord channels with very little to worry about unless you forget to properly fill your fridge before the party starts.
Supporter tickets are a voluntary option for anyone who would like to contribute more than 1 Euro to cover the expenses we're making for this party. If you decide to buy a supporter ticket you will receive our eternal gratitude, a votekey and a mention in our afterparty broadcast.
You can pre-order using bank transfer or Paypal. We will try to implement Bitcoin payments before the party starts. If you honestly need a different payment option, get in touch!
Sending votekeys is a manual process to prevent mischief and therefore slight delays can occur. Voting is still possible after a compo closes (except for the Shader Showdown). We send only 1 votekey to each contributor, and you will not be able to use multiple votekeys with a single Scene.org account. If any (attempts at) fraud are detected we reserve the right to disable the votekeys involved and remove any votes associated with those keys without explanation.
