All compo prizes are now paid
All competition prizes should now be paid and sent out. If you were a winner in any of the TG05-competitions (demo and game), please check your personal account in PTN.
Gotcha! Of course we are not going to host a second party in Oslo, and no; we are not going to build a second flooring in the Vikingship. :) A whole lot of you sent us questions about this and wanted to order tickets, but many also saw through it.

..so yes - of course it was all an april fools joke. :)

Info regarding compo-prizes
Great show! Congratulations to all our compo winners! Be sure to download the contributions and take a look!

Just a quick note to all our winners - we are currently still bringing the party down and the competition-server has to be synced with PTN until we can start sending out the hardware and/or paying out the cash-portion of your prizes. In the meantime - please make sure your address, account-number, mobile phone number etc. is correct in PTN, because that is usually what delays the payout.
This time of year again
It's sunday. Most likely the most depressing sunday of the year. The sunday The Gathering closes up.

Daylight-saving time
Tonight at 2 am you will have to set your watch one hour ahead. That means one less hour of solid TG-fun, but we'll just have to live with that. Remember to view and vote for the compos as well!
Questions for Jess and Mike?
Earlier today, Jess Cliffe and Mike Dussault from Valve held a seminar about the road from a MOD to HL2. The event was filmed, and will be released here at a later time. You guys sent in a bunch of questions. Most of them got answered, and the summary of the interview will appear on this website soon.
Check out the compos
As you may have noticed, some of the creative compos are already finished, and are now waiting for your vote! You can watch most of the entries on the big screen (stage). All voting is done through Zepo.

All votes are handed in via the website. Keep checking the schedule and watch out for the "event teaser"-tune from the stage.

May the best man/woman win :-)
Media section
Keep an eye on our new media section for live coverage, web cams and galleries from The Gathering.
Watch your bracelets!
Please do not damage your bracelet in any way. If you cut off the loose ends, the rest may fall off.
