The great attempt at demomaking by Necros himself (with a little help :), but sadly, it missed NAID (parts wouldn't link in time) and missed the Assembly compo because it crashed under EMM386, which the compo required. It must've been the only compo that required it. Anyway, they still blasted it on the screen while people were leaving :).

The demo itself was rather artistic for the time (before everyone jumped on the poetry bandwagon) and has some cool effects like the comet/voxel tunnel, but they still come off a little stale, and it's screaming for more colors or high res. As for the music.. do I need to comment? :)

Absolutely wonderful demo! This was original piece of work back in the '96.

Really great, I used to admire it a lot back then. Unfortunately it crashed in the comet part :/

I was so taken by the comet that it was the first "real" effect I copied from another demo and coded myself :)

Yes. Great shit. Necros never fails for the music. :)

The music rocks BB Image
As I can see we have here another voxel tunnel like the one in stars: that was my fav effect in this demo.
As usual kurdos 2 Dosbox :]

I've seen it slowly in DosBox but kinda liked it.

The music and things happening on screen fit. Many other demos thought great, and being way more known than this one, lack in this essential thing and thus fail..

only the music makes it worth watching imo.

Nothing really spectacular in case of effects, but yes, music and overall climate makes it cool.

I don't really like this at all design-wise and a lot of the effects are pretty so-so too. Music's fucking ace though.

There's clearly not enough Necros in the demos I watch. Hidden gems like this make me appreciate sites like Pouet that help us find them.

Really impressive.
