Breakpoint 2010 – Like there’s no tomorrow

The (sadly) last edition of Breakpoint, one of demoscene’s more reknowned demoparties, is happening now in Bingen am Rheim, Germany.

If you didn’t get to travel or can’t visit, you can follow the action on the stream.

I just spotted Syphus in there xD

Breakpoint 2010 announced as

Time to plan and hurry up if you want to attend the Breakpoint demoparty: The 2010 edition will be the last one. Ever. They’re serious.

Heralded as THE biggest 100% demoscene (no fucking gaming allowed) party, Breakpoint is expecting to leave the gauntlet to a new team that might want to follow, in the same way they took over the gap left by Mekka & Symposium.

The reasons? “We’re getting old”, they said, but they do reflect on the current state of the demoscene, a sad lack of interest from young blood regarding demoscene matters. It’s a shame.

I promised I will post more demoscene material in 2010 so it is sad  for me to be making this the very first demoscene-related post of 2010 for TCTD. I hope better news come as the year progresses.

Breakpoint 2009 about to start!


demoparty in the making!

demoparty in the making!

In little more than 12 hours everyone’s favourite -PURE DEMOSCENE- (no gaming fuckers) party is about to commence.


After a bad start generated by the global crisis, sceners worldwide have helped the party to be a reality and it might be, as they say, its finest hour! Corporate twats, take notice!

We’ll be looking forward to the oldschool competitions: usually the best Amiga demo of the year is released at Breakpoint (probably by TBL), so it’s going to be a busy weekend.

Those lucky party-goers attending the venue are in for a good weather treat: the forecast looks promising, so you will have the chance to spend good time outside of the place and your screens. Remember, this party doesn’t accept remote entries, so if you want to be part of the competitions, your only choice is to go to the party!

For us who can’t go, it seems this year, despite the economic problems, we’ll get the stream again. Yipee!

Schedule, Compo rules and more? Head over to the official site of Breakpoint 2009.
