[demo] Fantavision - 1985 Demo for Apple //e

A spectacular 30 year old demo for the Apple //e computer has been unearthed. Even though it consists mostly of animations, the hi-res visuals are mindblowing for the time (and not just that, considering the state of the Apple //e demoscene). It might well be on of the very first times such effects like unlimited bobs, rotating cubes and plotspheres were presented.

[demo] Pagan's Mind by Dream

"Pagan's Mind" is a new little C64 prod by Polish group Dream. It took first place in the one and only compo at the BCC Party last weekend. Not much to see in terms of code, but it does have some nice graphics and eerie music by mch.

[demo] Incubus et Succubus (1985)

Is it an early H'n'T demo? A digital drug trip? A faulty character ROM?
No, it's an animation for the Commodore, made in 1985 by Francesco Fanelli and Nando Santagata. Enjoy (and thanks Goto80 for the find).

spectralinterlude.com.

[demo] Are We Dead Yet? by Dekadence

The time has come again again... what time, you ask? Well, the time to break my usual rule of not posting Amiga AGA stuff (don't get me wrong, I like all Amigas, I just consider AGA somewhat out of scope for this blog).

So, without further ado, here's the well-deserved winner of the Amiga compo at this years' Payback party, 'Are We Dead Yet?' by Dekadence, for the unexpanded Amiga 1200.

[demo] Breathing Tree by Harekiet

Sorry for the silence folks... I'm not dead, just haven't stumbled across anything that really motivated me to post lately. Well, more than happy to break radio silence to tell you about this beautifully designed, fractal-ish 256 byte MS-DOS sizetro by Harekiet.

[soft] Stuart's TI-99/4A Browser


Yes, that's right: The TI-99/4A now has it's own web browser. Stuart Conner is teaching ancient 16-bitter a few new tricks. Only a limited set of HTML tags is supported, but still... holy cow! An RS-232 extension (e.g. nanoPEB) as well as an RS-232 to RJ-45 converter (e.g. lantronix UDS-10) is required to make use of the browser.

[demo] To The Future by Nyyrikki

A demo for the ultra-rare MSX turboR. Not much to see in terms of design (and probably slightly underwhelming in terms of effects), but considering the obscurity of the platform I just had to post it. Third place in the oldskool compo at Payback 2015 btw.
