The Assembly 2013 Showcase
Assembly is a yearly gaming and demoscene event held yearly in Finland, with 'demoscene' emphasizing a computer art subculture that specializes in creating audio visual presentations that run real time on various types of computers. In short, it's a competitive subculture centered around people doing incredible things with both likely and unlikely platforms (Like Hedelmae's amazing LCD demo above), showcasing their programming prowess and artistic abilities, all on a limited timeframe with the prerequisite that it has to run real time using the hardwares existing capabilities.
Check out a few of our favorite demos from one of the shows funnest categories, 'Real Wild' created on platforms including graphing calculators, browsers, Android platforms, a Nintendo DS and more. If you're a fan of chiptunes, you'll get a kick out of a few of the original compositions in this showcase. Be sure to subscribe to the Assembly Youtube channel as well for dozens of more creations in a variety of categories, including one dedicated to the true old school demoscene - the Amiga and ZX Spectrum demos.
