I have seen few Amiga demos, the most famous only (I should start with more)

This is one of my favoritest Amiga 500 demos! Great gfx and Music. Great Classical Amiga Design (Impressive synchronized Effects with the music everywhere ;)

I love the music&the gfx very much!
added on the 2001-03-06 15:39:39 by Optimus Optimus
100% agree. Cool code, impressive music and synchronisation, great graphics, many hidden parts, scene jokes and all that stuff... everything a demo needs. Certainly one of my faves on the A500.
added on the 2001-03-06 18:58:37 by kb_ kb_
Still a definite classic, but only by certain measures. The music and synching effects to it (my fave: the sawblade!) were excellent, and likely an inspiration for Second Reality. But the effects don't have much lasting power. Even for the time and platform, they were pretty simple. Most are dot-based, and even though they had a few records, they're still just dots. :)

The intro is cool (great opening music), but maybe a little too long. Still, I'm amused by the hints of a Kefrens/Melon Design war. I think prior to this demo, Melon released an intro with a pic of a melon pissing on an ankh, the Kefrens symbol. :)

a pretty cewl d-mo....only 1mb i required...and today????
Laxity (don't mix him up with the famous c64 musician) did a great job by making the code and the music for this masterpiece.I think this one is one of the best synchronized demos ever.Must have been a killer on the bigscreen...

great music, great graphics. great demo indeeed. as phoenix mentions, the sawblade was cool hehe.

btw: seems like the link points to the first of two disks. some nice stuff on disk2 too..

as already said above, a classic on the miggy, kickass music, in some parts simple effects yet effective in sync, and funny extras on disk2 - conclusion: amiga own(s/ed) :P
rulezadded on the 2001-06-13 20:30:27 by jelly jelly
yep.. one of the classics indeed..
rulezadded on the 2001-06-13 22:55:00 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
everything's been said already, most of the demo is really cool. i personally only dislike the beginning though with the pyramids, that's boring :) get the lofi video here: http://omr.planet-d.net/amidemos/desdrea.zip
rulezadded on the 2001-06-14 01:07:33 by robotriot robotriot
robotriot: In '93 that wasn't more boring than pc-demos are nowadays, so what :) It still makes more fun to watch than Spot :)

kicks ass, true true. i dont like intro sequence but i love dots, forever! so i dont care how much are there of these i just ask for more more more!
music... nice, classic amiga demo tune. graphics, cool aye. code? dots!! something more and.. dots!
rulezadded on the 2001-06-15 17:08:48 by raver raver
very good demo, a classic must have must see now!
excellent musics, lots of fun and private jokes, normal and good effects, few novator effects but a good faked mapping

kb_ speak about hidden parts above in his comment, so this is the tips to see the hidden part number 2 (i dont know the tip for the first)

hidden part 2 tip:
boot the disk 2
push and let pushed left mouse button, right mouse button, joystick fire in the same time
and enjoy a true intro with music and effects :)

if anybody knows the tip for hidden part number one, please put it here !-)

a very good prod!

I'm nostalgic again.
I was so young when it came out. This is no demo, it's a part of my past, maybe one of the best.
I wanna live again the moment i watched it for the first time!

One of the all time classics on Amiga. Fab music, unbelievable code and nice gfx. A CLASSIC IN AMIGA SCENE DEMOS.
rulezadded on the 2002-01-17 22:33:01 by z5 z5
I'll give it thumbs up for the nostalgic perspective and then complain : Why is it that everytime someone makes an amiga-demoshow this one MUST be shown? I agree that it WAS very cool, but today it's just borring and makes the audience fall asleep.
rulezadded on the 2002-01-17 22:39:03 by rasmus/loonies rasmus/loonies
Yes, this demo still rocks.
(I agree, the intro is a bit long.
I just knew that it would win 1. prize at The Gathering '93, the minut Laxity and Zeus showed me the final release version. (..and so it did).
Greetings to all ex. Kefrens members. We sure had a great time back then.

rulezadded on the 2003-07-24 22:40:37 by break break
Desert Dream rules! I got the DivX version from Amidemos and it rocks, so the real version must at least be that good. The music rocks!
What are the three music parts called?
My guess
1.) The Desert Dream
2.) Checknobahnk (I know this one is right, I knew this piece before seeing DD)
3.) His Masters' Rasters
Anyway, this demo is really cool.
And Gargaj, is that why the Conspiracy logo is a sawblade? ;-)

Crusader: The real names of the mods..
1) Technique Unfail
2) Checknobanckh
3) ? .. Damn, I've forgotten this! But it definitely wasn't "His Masters' Rasters". I'll have to get back to you on this :)

And don't waste your time on any blurry artifacted divx.. If you don't have the real thing WinUAE emulates the demo perfectly enough these days. If you have a fast enough PC, of course.
added on the 2003-08-27 13:44:56 by break break
Crusader: i'd rather call it a star rather than a sawblade... but yeah we wanted to destroy the camera with it a couple of times but then we figured it was used a zillion times before, thus it would be way too cheesy :)

a true classic. a bit overrated when it was out because there was better productions at this time. but it's like a great song which takes all his quality on stage. this demo is a true killer on big screen. I can't forget the day it was shown on the top quality screen at Saturne party. Everybody became crazy!

As a first-hour Amiga demo-coder I appreciate this masterpiece so much.

Although an ALiEN is killed! ;)

Noboby from our 1985-87 H.Q.C., Bitstoppers, BS1, FSW, Sodan, Guru Master and Silents era really could imagine what would be possible on Amiga 6-8 years later..

1985-1987 we were already proud of being able to move hughe blitter-objects, to play around with copper and playfields or to play short samples while loading.

This one is a KILLER!

Taking a peek at 1993's PCee demos makes it easier to comprehend.

ThanX Kefrens for this blast.

Stingray: "Best demo ever?" Haha. Please. I don't understand what the fuss is about. This demo has nothing spectacular, especially not energy. The musics were quite awful in my opinion and there just simply wasn't anything to look at, listen to or experience. If I made a demo, you could be sure this is something I would never want to produce. Gggh. Avoid. For good demos I recommend Odyssey, Tint, Relic, Love, Mindflow, Pulse .. even Drool This is light years better than this desert dream-demo. And many of the 'facts' in the demo are incorrect too. I wish I never have to lay my eyes on this 'demo'.

Remember being taken a bit off guard by this at TG. To me, it's better in hindsight now that I manage to look past all its design flaws. Fuuuk. I must be getting soft. ;)

Anyway. A very very important milestone in the demo scene, and even though I've never really been a great fan of RWO's gfx, I've come to appreciate Laxity's music a whole lot.

Favourite demo of all time.

It was the third demo i'd ever seen i think, only a few months after it came out - i was probably about 11 at the time. Loved it ever since.

I know it's borderline suicidal to thumb this down on pouet, but here you go...

I'm sorry, but I always hated this demo. I think it's a mess. I think it's cheesy (melon shooting spaceship??!! And yes, I know about the reference...). As good as the effects are, the design is all over the place and the music doesn't cut it for me.

I know the historic value of this one but even back in 1993 I didn't like it. Let's face it, there were C64 demos in 1991 that had a better design and flow.

Just an opinion, didn't want to spoil the party...
sucksadded on the 2009-08-15 00:42:35 by Stebo Stebo
ok, here's the deal: I'll thumb it up so we have a piggy.

I did not exactly hate the demo but it was cheesy and boring (teh blashemy!11).. liked the C64 cover much much better!
rulezadded on the 2009-08-15 00:46:51 by xyz xyz
Very cheesy indeed. The music's ok, and there's a decent flow... I guess I'd thumb this up if other people hadn't done the service 187 times already. :-)

So he can nomore terrorize
He wanted us to blame the melon
But now he felt us turn the hell on

Can't say I enjoyed all aspects of the demo, but, once the main action started, it got into the groove and became pretty good. It had some of the most creative transition effects of the time, that is for sure. I can now see where some of the parts of Second Reality soundtrack came from, too.

Is it just me, or Amiga demos really did age better than the contemporary DOS ones?..

Legendary Amiga demo, and it's funny to compare it against Second Reality and notice where the Future Crew got several ideas from.

By the way, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrCdMqFevj0 seems to be a better recording than the "part 1" and "part 2" clips in the infobox.
