It has been one hot summer this year, which also applies to the activity of TRIAD! Since the last update here, we’ve been tinkering with quite some interesting stuff.
A whole bunch of us were present at Gubbdata 2018 in the end of June, more specifically Cash, Powerslave, Bepp, Sailor, Mr.Z, King Fisher, iopop, Skyhawk and Taper. While there we incidently won the demo competition with our tribute to Mr.Z, entitled Soft Machine. The demo was coded by Icon, iopop, Powerslave and Houbba, with graphics from Twoflower and music by Dalezy!
A whole streak of smaller first-releases would also make it out during and just after the party. Starting off with G7000 Racer!, which also boasted the brand new crackintro entitled Dancing Keith, concieved by Skyhawk, Powerslave and Ne7. The rush continued with Orbs, Wave Hero, Trump Tower, Mind the Mines and the 101% version of Memory-Safe. Sailor and Lynx helped out taking care of business on those titles.
A few weeks later, old member Quorthon visited Taper and the TRIAD HQ basement for some catching up. Sadly the meetup was not caught on camera this time around.
Hammering at Gubbdata 2018 took its toll, so we had no releases for this years edition of Datastorm. However, TDM and Cash were present at the party, while King Fisher hosted a remote talk about the conception of our legendary demo Red Storm. The talk can be scene in this video, forward to about 02:09. Also TDM and former member Alfatech is participating in the talk.
A few days after Datastorm, a small meeting was held at Tapers place, with iopop, Skyhawk, Powerslave and guest Jucke/Judas present in the data-dungeon. Work on some future projects was discussed, some development was done and one 1983 C64 resurrected from the dead.
At last, some VERY cool news; TDM has decided to return to activity again, so his membership has been restored to active status! Welcome back to the mummyship!
