One of my all time favourite demos! The music and the effects just kicks ass!

Awesome animation in the beginning plus that shattering glass effect alone were unbelievable back in the era of 030 Amigas. Definite classic.

agree with melwyn... simply great!

this may be a big technological achievement, but many parts are rather ugly. the music is great though.

I still hate the shattering glass, but apart from that this demo totally does it for me!

i remembered this for the jellyfish with the blur effect. Wasn't as good as i remembered, but then nothing in old demos ever is :) Still a good one from that year.

Great demo with really cool music, but I don't like the fake-hicolor look. Apart from that, it rules.

should this demo be renamed as digital chocolate??

"this demo is something faktory was supposed to be."
funny, since i really liked faktory but found this one to just look dull..

I prefer Faktory, but this one's nice too.

Nice anim at the start, effects weren't all that interresting, music is, well not bad but nothing spectacular either.

Couldn't get it to run on WinUAE, kept bombing after the balls going through rings, so had to watch the ultra-shit video version, still great work.

Did not like it few years ago. Perhaps cause have not seen it on the real thing? Since than I have just watched that and want to say - the demo is amazing! Two minuses - its end and its length - too short.
Respect to theone of the most important gruops on the A1200 - Virtual Dreams and Fairlight!

Classic !!!

Saw it live on the big screen at Assembly '96 and I'm still searching my jaw from the floor :) If one group should make a comeback, I wish that would be Virtual Dreams!

I like this considerably more now. Very cool and contemporary demo for 1996. The effects and overarching design are spectacular, very reminiscent of fsol's visuals indeed. The music is alright, but does dive down to somewhat weak levels at couple points.

Watched it as part of the Amiga demo retrospective at Assembly '17. Quite good for the time!

Simply amazing and the style is very modern for a 1996 demo. I remember how stunning the beginning was the first time I saw it. Too bad about the 2x2 blitter screen pattern.

Peak spectacular for me! Amazing music, effects and flow overall. Just gotta love those pre-rendered still images displaying the demo's name and information with cool fonts. It's like the physical box art of the demo displayed inside the demo, so cool! Maybe it's a Finnish thing but these always remind me of the dos game Wings and its background menu graphics.
