The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival November 1st, 2012
SH3 writes:

The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival, "ejagfest", takes place on November 24th in
Duisburg, Germany.

ejagfest is an annual festival for all Jaguar and Lynx fans, developers and retailers. Open-minded fans of other video game systems are welcome, of course. If you who would like to play Jaguar, Lynx, VCS 2600, 5200, 7800 or a trusty homecomputer of the 80s, thisis the right place.

Retro games, homebrew announcements / presentations, prototypes believed to be lost and demos of all kinds can be experienced. Developers from all over Europe regularly take the opportunity to present their new developments on the festival, and sometimes even have exclusive items for sale. The official European championship in ?Checkered Flag? for the Lynx takes place each year and there are retro game retailers offering Jaguar, Lynx, ST and a variety of other retro game systems and games.

Highlights of ejagfest 2012:

Mr.Coke shows his Atari ST Demo "Yet Another 4KB Intro?, which was the winner of the Outline 2012 compo in October. He will also show some hand-selected demos and intros on his machine and tell us something about the atari scene.
