The first demo from Omega if I am not mistaken.

To get to the main menu, press Reset once you have reached the Omega logo, some bombs will appear then you will eventually reach the main menu.

Use Arrows and Help (Page Up if you're using Steem) to select a screen.

The demo is quite ugly designwise but very advanced codwise for its time. It even features some fullscreen effect.

Thanks Evl for sending me this one, I knew it but totally forgot/missed the Reset thing to get to the main menu :)

Thumb up for the first ever ST-fullscreen. Yes, this one was out before Union demo (if the scroller is correct).

But the demo looks really ugly :)

I tried quickly this morning and all I could see after a reset was a screen with a picture, a scroll at the bottom of the screen and you could select a different chiptune with Help and the up/down arrows. :|

Well, on the other hand Evil/Dhs had to remind me how to even pass the introduction, so... ;)

Since I made large parts of the demo I feel that I have to defend it a bit :)

Yes, it is quite ugly but mostly this demo was done by 2 coders. I even made a font and I have limited gfx talent.

It, however, had some really big scrollers for the time and the first released ST fullscreen (that worked 1 out of 100 times or so, hehe).
There was also a longer scroll text than the BIG demo and it must have been the biggest reset demo at that time.

Anyways, thanks for the thumbs up. It is almost 20 years ago, the memories..
BTW, this was released at the Sync Convention.

HAQ:

Now that you visited Altparty (nice seeing you there !) and registred on Pouet you gotta find that missing Megaleif (Electra party) winner demo :-)

It's been 16 years and I still remember the demo after just seeing it once. "Mine is bigger" with the cube and the rollercoaster effect, all cool stuff :)

50 FPS MPEG-4 movie with clips from all screens

PS. The fullscreen doesn't work 100% with any of my ST/STe machines, so there are graphics problems there in the video.
