[demo] 16 Shapes of Grey by MaPa & PG

Ok, here's one for the Atari 8-bit folx. Those "50 Shades" jokes are getting a bit old, but this prod by MaPa and PG is quite fresh! Graphics and a Pokey soundtrack in 1 kilobyte, you don't see that every day. And so it rightfully won the 1K intro compo at Forever.

[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.
