July: The Aching
Revision Party 2019
This is a DOS Game Club Extra Special Episode. You see, recently we held our first DOS Game Club Meetup, as we went to the Revision Party 2019 in Saarbrücken, Germany. Exciting!
Revision is a demoscene party, which means they have a stage with a big screen and speakers on which all sorts of cool demos, intros, videos, games, music and lots more is being shown. All of the content is created by the people attending the event. What's especially cool about Revision is that they have categories for oldskool systems, so our DOS stuff fits right in!
Of course we did try to make our own demo running in DOS and submit it to the event, but sadly it turns out making a cool demo is *a lot* of work and we couldn't quite manage to finish it in time. We did make some progress though, so we're not abandoning it. We'll continue to work on it and hopefully show it next year.
It was great fun to meet some of the DOS Game Club members in real life for the first time! In total we were with the five of us: Ynze ("bitrot"), Mike ("toasty"), Marwane ("wan"), Florian ("rnlf") and Martijn ("Tijn"). We had a great time hanging out together, checking out all the cool demos, talking to people about DOS and last but not least play a bunch of DOS LAN games.
On Sunday morning we recorded a quick podcast at the apartment where some of us were staying. The first one ever where we're all in the same room! Sadly the room was also a bit echo-y and we only brought 2 microphones, so the sound quality isn't the best. We hope you still have fun listening to it, because we had a lot of fun being there and recording this!
