tUM*2008 aftershock
Better late than never. ;) We returned home from the Ultimate Meeting 2008 around a week ago. The party was once again very well organized and it's been great fun. Raven was ranked second in the Modern Tools Graphics Competition. the Ultimate Meat-Thing was a great success and we hope everyone had enough steaks in the end. Afterwards we felt that it was the best idea to spend the prize money of Buenzli in that way. Echtzeit did a free breakfast the next morning, so you were able to come through the whole party without actually buying food. :D

I sense meat.
We just released our intro for our barbeque at tUM*08. It's done by Rayzn, Raven and Okeanos. Have fun and don't forget to grab some fine schnitzel at tUM!

UK members left and memberlist updates
Most of the UK members (Michael, Simon, SPI, Cynic,) left. Take care guys. It's been great to have you in the team. Only tetsuomaki remains as only UK member now. Also some people got moved to the memorable members list as they were inactive for the group over 1 year or didn't give a lifesign to e-mails.

Raven Demoscene Art
Raven's demoscene artworks are available again. You can find it over here. It features works of the sections: logos, pictures and various. Each gallery is chronologically sorted and shows excerpts of his creations for the demoscene. Have fun. Feedback appreciated.

We managed to release a fast demo at SUNDOWN 2008 in cooperation with TRSI (Oh boy - that was a fast cooperation!). Sadly the organizers fucked up a bit and it wasn't shown during the compo. They showed it the next morning, but I bet most didn't notice anyway. But in the end it's all like: "We managed to do a fast intro and support a small party. We're satisfied. No bad feelings! :D". Oh well...we got ranked 8th. :D

Back on track.
We're glad to announce that one of our long term members is back on track. Twystor is back and renamed to cub3. Currently he's working on a small demo project with Raven.

NUANCE at Buenzli2008
We managed to release another demo entitled "Ungol" and win the PC Demo Competition during our favourite swiss scene event: The Buenzli 2008. We've also won the Graphics Competition with Raven's entry and also the Wild Competition with Cosmic's entry. This was once again a really nice party with lot's of fun.
