I originally wanted to wait for Björn to write the announcement of this year’s Euro JagFest, but as it’s already been three weeks since the date was announced on the official homepage, I think it’s more than overdue to announce the event here.
This year’s Euro JagFest will take place on 27th November in the same location as the last years in Kaarst, Germany.

Thanks to a number of developers taking place this year, you’ll have the chance to see the latest progress on upcoming projects or possibly see new projects for the first time.

* If everything goes as planned, there will be a new version of the Atariowl Project to see, which is even more impressive than the previously shown versions.

* For the first time since the project restarted earlier this year you’ll be able to witness the progress on the new Eerievale game.

* Members of Reboot and Jagware will attend the event to show some of their latest work and give people the chance to try their excellent games.

* Nick Harlow of 16/32 Systems will be there again and have a variety of Atari hardware and software for sale.

This short list is not complete, if you plan to attend and would like to demonstrate a project or show off a rare collectible, feel free to let us know. :)

As every year there will be very fun game competitions and lots of great people to meet.
Don’t miss it. :)

Thanks Lars for opening this thread, I was really bussy at work for the last days, so I'm late with the official announcement. I will contribute the press-release soon. :)

Ah excellent news, not been to an E-Jagfest yet. Will check out some flights and the possibility
of maybe even driving over. Last time I was in Germany it was just passing through on the way to
SV2000. Will give me the chance to pop in and see a few friends and look at where I used to live
when I was a kid.

Even the German railroad system is on the decline due to cost-cutting and schedule "improvements" (most of them meaning that trains won't any longer stop at smaller stations), but it's still darn cheap if one buys tickets early (Hamburg-Düsseldorf for EUR 29 one way for a single person, EUR 49 for two travellers) - the Japanese and the Swiss railroads are said to be way better.

I just finished translating the press release. It's now online on the Euro JagFest Homepage.

+++ Press Release +++ Atari Jaguar Europe Festival

Announcement of the Atari Jaguar Europe Festival 2010

The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival, "ejagfest" in short, takes place on 27th November of this year in Kaarst, Germany.

The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival is an annual festival for all Atari Jaguar and Lynx fans, developers and retailers. Open-minded fans of other video game systems are welcome, of course.

The „Atari Jaguar Europe Festival“, "ejagfest" in short, takes place on 27th November of this year in Kaarst, Germany (not far from Neuss/Düsseldorf). It’s a meeting of retro gaming fans from all over Europe.
The focus of attention is Atari and all consoles of the cult lable. All of you who would like to play systems like the Jaguar, Lynx, VCS 2600, 5200, 7800 or on a trusty homecomputer of the 80s, this is the right place.

Retro games, homebrew announcements / presentations, prototypes believed to be lost and demos of all kind can be experienced on the ejagfest.
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. New VCS 2600 games such as “Rasterfahndung” and “Encaved” were shown. Starcat presented projects such as “Star Alliance”, an early tech demo of “Eerievale” and released a limited ejagfest edition of his Jaguar CD title “JagMIND: Bomb Squad”. Beta-Versions of the Jaguar puzzle game “Clicks” and “Impulse X”, the new game by Matthias Domin were presented. The impressive „Atariowl Project“ for the Jaguar was presented for the first time and early exclusive screenshots of the Lynx version of Iron Solider were shown.

Another highlight was the presentation of the only working “High-res Jaguar Virtual Reality Headset” in existence, which was shown on ejagfest in the year 2007.

Competitions such as “Club Drive” or “Kasumi Ninja” make sure everyone has a fun time. Next to these fun competitions, the official European championship in “Checkered Flag” for the Lynx is taking place each year.
To make the event complete there are retro game retailers to offer Jaguar/Lynx titles and a variety of other retro games and systems.

Additional highlights of this year

• An exclusive demo of the promising Action-RPG „Atariowl Project“, which sets new standards on the Jaguar will be presented.
• For the first time since the project’s revival, the Eerievale Team provides insight into the progress on the correspondent multiplatform graphic adventure.
• The well known Jaguar developer teams “Reboot” and “Jagware” will be present with their latest developments.
• Matthias Domin, developer of Jaguar titles such as „Double Feature“, „Clicks“ and „Impulse X“ announced his attendance.
• Gary Taylor shows his new custom overlays & boxes for the Jaguar and the already released Aircars 94 Beta.
• Nick Harlow of 16/32 Systems will have a wide variety of new and used atari games and systems for sale.
• Sijmen and Sandra of „The Atari Shop“ will be present with their Atari & Retro merchandise.

Competitions:

• Checkered Flag European Championship (Atari Lynx)
• Kick-Off NRW-Championship (Atari ST)

This list is nowhere complete, every visitor who has something to show is welcome to. Please let us know in advance if possible.

All of you who enjoy retro games and a nice chat with like-minded people are welcome to join us.

This year is the event‘s 10th anniversary and takes place for the 7th time in a row at the Bischofshof location in Kaarst.

Opening is on 27th November at 10:30am. Entrance fee is 5,00 Euro.

The exact address, directions and latest news can be found on:
www.jagfest.org/euro and on www.twitter.com/ejagfest

Too bad that you can't make it yourself. Would be great to meet you in person and see you demonstrate your game engine.
It turned quite a few heads last year. Looking forward to see what kind of improvements it got this year.
