Scene World Podcast Episode #59 - Farming Simulator with GIANTS' Martin Rabl

2018 was a banner year for commercial C64 releases, none more surprising -- or more well-received -- than GIANTS Software's hit game Farming Simulator. AJ and Joerg talk to GIANTS' Martin Rabl about how the C64 port came to be and why retrogaming is such a big part of gaming culture. The interview starts 12 minutes into the podcast.

Watch the video version of this podcast, too!

The Meteoriks Awards 2019 - Another call for jurors!

Another call for jurors!

Over the past two weeks, a lot of people applied to be jurors, and we're very happy with the participation already! <3

That said, we want MOAR. More jurors mean more opinions, more participation and ultimately better results! We'd like to have a jury of at least 27 people (nine juries of three persons each), and we're not there yet, so keep the applications coming!

There are no special requirements to becoming a juror - you don't need to be a scene superstar with a buttload of releases under your belt. All we need from you is an opinion, a couple evenings' worth of time and the will to make a decision together with your fellow jurors.

Just so you know what you're getting yourselves into, these are your duties as jurors:
  • Review last year's productions in any way you see fit for your category
  • Identify up to five nominees
  • Choose a winner
  • One member out of each jury should represent their category on stage during the awards show


If you're interested, drop everything you're doing and join us at https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/juror right now! It's still over a week to the deadline, but why wait and forget?

[ DHS.NU ] .tSCc. is riding the Synthwave with Laser Days
Lotek Style writes:
A very unexpected Christmas release came from The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. Lotek Style was working on his new E.P. during the year 2018 and after the music was finished they decided it would be a nice bonus to have this as a Falcon music disc as well.
The release runs on a standard Falcon 030 and features a new MP2 system esp. developed for this release.

Get ready for a trip into the 80s and back.

The Meteoriks Awards 2019 - Looking for jurors!

The Meteoriks are back!

Just like in the previous years, the Meteoriks awards set out to honor the best productions of the year 2018, and again we're striving for a very open process by asking everyone to apply to become part of our juries!

Like last year, we're going to hit the ground running with a full set of categories. In fact, last year's categories worked so well that after a brief consideration we opted to go with the same categories as last year. Hooray for stability!

THE METEORIKS 2019 CATEGORIES
  • New Talent - The group or individual scener that made their most memorable entrance in 2018
  • Best Soundtrack - The production with the best soundtrack
  • Best Visuals - The production with the most beautiful and impressive art style, graphics, effects, modeling, texturing, color scheme, ...
  • Best Direction - The production with the best overall cohesion, camerawork, atmosphere, pacing, story, ...
  • Outstanding Technical Achievement - The production that most dropped our jaws as it was previously deemed impossible
  • Best Low-End Production - The overall best production on a low-end platform
  • Best Small High-End Intro - The overall best production in 8k or less
  • Best High-End 64k Intro - The overall best production in 64k or less
  • Best High-End Demo - The overall best production between 64k and INFINITY!

And as always, we can't do this alone - we need your help!

JURY DUTY

"We" - right now that is just the Meteoriks organizing team. We cannot and should not decide on the award nominees and, ultimately, the laureates of the Meteoriks Awards for 2019, and that's why we need you to sign up to be part of the jury! You know you want to!

Just so you know what you're getting yourselves into, these are your duties as jurors:
  • Review last year's productions in any way you see fit for your category
  • Identify up to five nominees
  • Choose a winner
  • One member out of each jury should represent their category on stage during the awards show

Still interested? Great, go here: https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/juror - and do it before Sunday, February 10th as that's our deadline for juror applications!

PROD SUGGESTIONS

Our jurors will have to wade through a truckload of prods to find worthy nominees, so they can use all the help they can get in finding the true gems in 2018's productions. You can all help them by submitting the prods you think are super worthy of receiving a Meteorik at https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/recommend


And so it starts! Head on to https://www.meteoriks.org/ and start participating!

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

- The Meteoriks Team
