Yes. Apparently Forever party will be in a different location this year: https://demozoo.org/parties/3887/ (but it is still happening)
Yes, Instanssi demoparty had plenty of releases inspired by Coronavirus

I was always expecting Revision to be ground zero for something like Corona.

welcome to the jungle baby, we're all gonna die!
Better snack your veggies then
We will have months of party coding after the army locks down the Revision party place in a similar way to the Diamond Princess ship. Beer will be supplied from outside of course.

https://www.didcoronakillthesceneyet.xyz I made this to keep track of parties.
I will keep track on here about parties and update the site when new stuff comes out. If I miss something please feel free to ping me on IRC/Twitter thanks.
@g0blinish: no, Silly Venture is not in danger, don't worry. it's still 270 left to the party, I am pretty sure this "virus problem" will be solved within the next months.

I'd use the term "demoparty" here loosely, but add https://www.gathering.org/tg20/ to the cancel list.

it is a factual problem. Corona can be the reason your grandma or grandpa dies this year and not in 5 or 10, because they could not vaccinate against it thru an annual flu shot.

Hello everyone, we’re very sad to tell you that due to the safety measures taken by the Slovak government (prohibiting all sports and cultural events because of the COVID-19 outbreak), Forever 2020 will, for the first time in its 20-year history, not take place on the third weekend in March.

We had evaluated two possibilities: Either we could make the party digital-only, streaming quizzes and compos and being in touch with you over the internet. But in the end we agreed on that the beauty of the event consisted in meeting other 8-bit enthusiasts in person. As it’s not certain for how long this and similar safety measures will be applied in the following weeks, we decided to postpone the party September or maybe October. Stay tuned for updates on the exact time and place.

For now, please don’t forget to cancel your travel and accomodation bookings as soon as possible, so that you minimize your cancellation fees, and we’ll be looking forward to meeting you later this year.
