Szene-Party: Evoke (Köln, 12.08. bis 14.08.)
Im August findet in den AbenteuerHallenKALK in Köln die diesjährige Auflage der Szene-Party Evoke statt. Wie üblich werden diverse Demo-, Grafik- und Sound-Wettbewerbe veranstaltet. Spezielle Kategorien für Retro-Computer sind nicht geplant, 8- oder 16-Bit-Produktionen können in der Kategorie "Alternative Platforms" eingereicht werden - hier ist dann aber u.U. eigene Hardware mitzubringen. Für Pixelgrafiken und Protracker-Module werden allerdings Wettbewerbe angeboten.

Auf der Veranstaltung wird auch die schwarmfinanzierte Dokumentation 8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars vorgeführt. (cg)
