so ... what's all this, then ?

'the .au xmas compo' is an online xmas demo competition. people are invited to submit a demo or intro, which will be made available for public download on around the 20th of december.

after the productions are released, we will accept votes for your favourite entries, and some time after christmas day, we will declare a winner, and maybe send them a prize ;)

that didn't help at all ... what's a demo ?

a demo is a non-interactive realtime application that you run and watch and enjoy ;)

in a way, demos are like a music video, only rendered using game programming techniques.

the best way to figure out what i'm talking about is to have a look at some. the biggest online demo archive is at, and their 'viewing tips' section would be a good place to start.
