This prod have a story, let me explain it here.

Gengis the coder was a french member of Digital when this prod was released, so i add this prod under the Digital group name (and because swappers of 1992 spreaded this floppy disk with Digital writen on it).

Gengis the coder, had the official A1200 specs and documentations before the computer was available in the shops! I did not know the exact story about commercial contracts with Commodore France, but this demo was shown in lots of shops in France when the A1200 was out. My copy is from a shop.

So you can easily understand why this prod allready have some good AgA effects, and why when Gengis left Digital for Complex in 1993, the Complex demos was so good, he won 1 year of AgA code studies!

I'm interested if you know other parts of this story, please write it here.

I didn' t know about this official Commodore demo for "dealers".
Good it was commissioned to a scene coder.
Well it doesn' t really show the main features of the AGA chipset, it is only AGA in general.
Anyway it is a cool demo.
Approved by Commodore :)

cool early AGA demo with a neat backstory

Really nice AGA demo which does not require a monster accelerator to run!

nice
Although more a technical demo, this one was/is always a pleasure to watch. Nice effects with a fantastic tune by Clawz <3
