Hi there!

Maybe you already know, the annual 1K Minigame competition is running

Here's the original invitation grabbed from comp.sys.cbm:

It's time for the 2002 1K game compo

The 2002 MiniGame 8-bit coding competition is now officially open, and
ready for your entries. For those of you who didn't participate last
year, the aim is to write a game in 1024 bytes of code, for one of the
classic 8-bit home computers. The deadline this year is 16th of
September, 12.00 GMT.

You'll find the rules for submission at http://www.ffd2.com/minigame/
Questions and submissions can be sent to minigame@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Well, I just had a little discussion with the organizer:

MP> Would an entry for the Atari 2600 VCS be valid?


MP> It'd have to be a 4K sized binary, but I could use only the first
MP> 1024 bytes of it.

Yes, have 1K of code and 3K of zeros.

Glad to hear that there are some VCS coders who are interested :)

So, right now I'm thinking of ways to finish a playable 1K version of 
"Star Fire" in time. Maybe... :-)

Just thought to let you all know, to have some competition :-)
