js1024 is a competition falling in the realm of the Demoscene where you create little games or audio-visual demonstrations using as few resources as possible.
One notable example is js13kGames, which we covered back in 2017, where you have to write a full game within a 13K limit. In js1024 the requirements are even more restricted - your code's size should come up to a maximum of 1024 bytes! Really, what can you do with that amount of space?
In 3rd place there was a spinoff of the classic Snakes game, Shedding Snake and in 4th, Avoid, a game in which the player has to avoid things flying their way.
The code of all project code is of course open source and available online; the links are provided on each project's entry on the js1024k web site. Furthermore some projects also have postmortem writeups detailing how they were actually engineered by their authors.
Some of them are :
and of course, the winner's
All that awesomeness crammed into just 1K. But wait.If you thought that this was too little, you should have a look at Dwitter where you create art, writing code the equivalent of the size of a Tweet, that is in just 140 characters!
The next js1024 contest takes place in July 2021.
