Is these kind of demos still made?

category: offtopic [glöplog]
 
I'm wondering, is these kind of demos still made? I really like this kind of demos, and i don't see any new prods like this. D.A.N.E by Kefrens is another great example of this kind of demo.

This one has 2d-vectors like the D.A.N.E. by Kefrens but would have need someone to do graphics... :( pure

Well, i kinda mean this. Hand-drawn graphics, vectors, scrollers, jokes, comments on how stuff in the demo works, and funny text (look in "En hur snygg dentro som helst" at the end)

You should look into C64 demos for that, and even there it's a dying artform.

I would say the Amiga in the platform where you'll find the most such demos, but they will likely all be made before 1996-7 or something like that.

If what you mean is multipart demos with transitions in general, there are still some being made for Amiga. They might be Melon-wannabe style or graffiti/hiphop style, or arty/poem style or... so maybe not your cup of tea and not that many.

I bet there are at least 1500 demos like this that you haven't seen yet at BitWorld ;)

Many demos have/will have much of what you listed, perhaps without too cartoony handdrawn gfx joke type parts. Even if some of these demos you mean are easily watchable, like taking a walk and seeing what's round the bend (ie. what's in the next part), usually what you're rewarded with in the next part is a variation of a done-before effect. Which is why many of these don't get watched by me, I guess I'm too lazy. I have so many demos to catch up on, so I need to feel the need to see something specific in a demo to be arsed to put it on a CF card and watch it on my Amigas. :)

If you're passionate about these, why not make packdisks, podcasts, YT/etc channel about them?
