Отлично!

And even if there is a ZX-Dev 2019, this will not clash with it.

I have an idea, but unless I get organised, preparations for Woot! will take over.

Interesting :)

One comment. If they want it to be an international competiotion with entries from all over the world, they should really do an English version of the website.

And you should really read the rules carefully here before you start coding :) No remakes of existing games this time, everything must be totally copyright free.

I think, they put foreign countries into list because many exUSSR territories is still speaking Russian, like I do for example.

But there is a Portuguese and an English judge, and it focuses on 48/128K, so entries are welcome from anywhere I presume.

If I enter, there will certainly be a Russian version. I'd encourage others to have a bash, it's good fun and there is usually someone to help with translation.

It's not clear if game designers are allowed. Can we use AGD/PGD etc?

I guess it´s the Yandex Museeum...

For what I can see, you can apply for a new game here: https://events.yandex.ru/surveys/10528/

For any questions you can use this email adress: museum@yandex-team.ru

Yandex is a big web company which is something like Russian Google. It has search engine, maps, translator + news, weather forecast, auctions and so on (so maybe it's even bigger than Google in functionality and a bit like Yahoo or Altavista if you forgive ancient examples ;) )

I guess some people from Russian Spectrum scene convinced them to give hmm... patronage (would it be a proper word? ) to this event.

I checked the thread at Russian forum ( https://zx-pk.ru/threads/30643-yandex-r ... -2019.html ) but it doesn't explain much more.

The rules probably need to be more precise. Currently they say that any extra hardware can't be used. Somebody noticed that it eliminates things like for example Kempston joystick ;)

And it would be also interesting to know if Russian language version is required.
