The first competition of the year in which you can participate is clearly the BASIC 10Liners competition for all 8bit computers with line oriented BASIC dialects. In 2011 and 2013 the contest was an internal competiton of the retro computer meeting NOMAM in Lübeck / Germany, but a lot of contributions came from all around the world in 2014 and only one was produced live on the meeting. So if you are able to develop a BASIC program for one of the allowed systems, you can submit your contribution (deadline 22nd April 2017):

Systems:

  • All 8bit computer systems

Authorized BASIC dialects:

  • All line oriented BASIC dialects

You will find more information about the contest on the BASIC 10Liners competition homepage (scroll down for the english translation). You can also have a look at the results of the last year.

Finally here they are: the files of the competition entries of the CPCRetroDev 2016. It is awesome to see so many entries which also seem to be higher in quality again this year. I guess you have already read the news about the winners in the different categories, so here are the results of all games. To download the game, click on the title.
Hopefully, the games will be available on cassette in the future on the CPCRetroDev homepage, too.
