I accidentally found this demo yesterday, when browsing my Hornet demoCDs and my attention caught by the title. This and the Spacepigs Megademo are perhaps the only EGA demos I happen to know. It was also interesting for me historically, cause it's the first demo from S-Cubed, before forming Psychic link together with Statix and there is also a very big scroller at the end, which I surprisingly read it all, 64kb of texts for 45 minutes (I encountered after that, the well known "watching a scroller for too much time and then trying to focus your vision at one far point" side effect ;) not just because I wanted to read interesting facts, but also because I found it sooo funny! :)

I thought I should add it here too. It's a pitty I can't grab a screenshot right now..

I recall this demo quite vividly. It had a great laugh over his report on the fussiness of Apple Macs vs. floppies.

It was arguably his last (EGA and/or solo) demo, I think he did some other stuff before this one.

Yeah, the apple floppies was one of the many great laughs on the scroller..
Yes, actually the nfo file says that it is the second EGA demo by S-Cubed but the first was never ever released because it was very bad. But he has participated for sure in the demo Act1 by Psychic Link and perhaps other too, but surelly in Act1.

Anyway rulez..

I have also read in the scroller that he coded some CPC demos before, don't know if he ever released them and under which handle..

I remember that I had read the whole scroller:) and this demo is very cute and funny. also this is EGA demo, something different! music fits the demo perfectly it is not so impressive, but nice. I had the module somewhere.

Can't believe I haven't thumbed this yet. When all I had was a 286 with EGA and a GUS (don't ask), demos were hard to come by. I worshipped this demo since that's all there was aside from Space Pigs' megademo.

When I managed to find this, the EGA era was over and there were more awesome demos around :(
