My Dears, as it is the 30th Anniversary of Atari Lynx, our mate RJ1307 has donated some very interesting prizes! Everyone who submits a game or demo for this console can try to "fight" for a LYNX II with a new fantastic LCD screen, or for an AGACART (Lynx SD)!

Huge thanks, RJ!

Thanks as well to Hospes for the poster.

My Dears, I would like to provide a clarification about compo entries for the ATARI LYNX platform, related to 30th Anniversary of this console and the available prizes. We and RJ1307, the sponsor of the awards, can now announce that there will be separate "LYNX DEMO COMPO" & "LYNX GAME COMPO" categories. In both of these, the prize for the 1st place will be:

- LYNX II with a new LCD screen, AgaCart & power supply (everything in unique "substitute" packaging - surprise!)

For the 2nd place in both categories, the winner will receive a AgaCart.

IMPORTANT! If it turns out that there's only one entry in the games category, in accordance with general Compo Rules the main prize will be automatically given to this entry whilst the AgaCart for the second place will be transferred to the Demo Category as a prize for the third place.

For those who haven't seen it yet, Mystic Bytes and Agenda released another invitro at Deadline 2019 party in Berlin ! (ranked 2nd in oldschool demo compo). This time (for a change) it wasn't ATARI platform, but... Sega Mega Drive :) N-joy!
