Gerp is a traditional demoparty that is being held in Skövde/Sweden from the 2nd to the 4th of February 2018.
The party has a focus on the oldskool platforms and historically it has especially been a stronghold for the Amiga demoscene.
Same as last time, we will be right in the middle of Skövde, at the local culture centre (in the hall named ‘Freja’). This means that you will find hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarket etc all within a few minutes of walking! The closest hotels are located just around the corner and the railroad/bus station is right across the street. At the party there will be room for about 100 people.
As with any true demoparty you can sleep at the party (bring your inflatable mattress!). If you’re getting rusty and rather sleep at a hotel we supply some links for you at the bottom of this page. We are holding a whole bunch of compos for you to participate in and as usual at Gerp there will also be surprise compos announced during the party. For those who can’t make it in person we also accept remote entries sent in by e-mail. However, we would rather see you present at the party!
Competitions at Amiga Demoscene party Gerp 2018 in Skövde, Sweden
At Gerp there will be a number of competitions for you to participate in (including fast/surprise compos). All entries must be previously unreleased and will be spread in public after the party. In case there are very few entries in a compo there will be a merge with some closely related compo and if we get loads of entries in a compo we might even split it (e.g. splitting the Amiga demo compo into a separate demo compo and a separate intro compo). The winner in each compo will get some kind of prize yet to be decided.
