actually has a sort of koyaanisqatsi-like atmosphere. i dig it.

Oh my, now that is awesome! The soundtrack, I dare not call it music, was pretty bad tho :D

I have a long time since I've last seen a bigger DOS intro and this is quite cool for 1k, I could pass it for a 4k intro easilly!
rulezadded on the 2012-01-23 00:55:14 by Optimus Optimus
that's some amazing shit right there.

The fact that it's just 1k really shows, but not in the way I expected - it's like it's running a complex 4k on some kind of ancient machine, rather than running a simple 1k on a modern one. Or like a full demo running on a seriously over clocked vic20 :)

My jaw dropped on the last scene. Pity that the ending turned out kinda sudden and anticlimatic, but it's not like I could expect even more from a DOS 1k.

Please do more!

Great code and great story telling. Just when you think you have reached $3ff... the fish start swimming to the right. Very cool ... and reminds me of my fish swimming to the left.

And when you just have recovered from watching, you realize ... there are 9 bytes free :-)

I'm not really impressed with this. Way too many glitches. Music that is not much more than a glorified sound effect that only works on rather rare, specialized hardware. 2.5 effects in a row is not storytelling. 1k is quite much for DOS. I'd say there's still room for improvement. :)
