Great oldschool stuff! I love the "Burpin' Bittner RaP" at the mainmenu :D

Argueable one of Mad Max best-ever tunes in the AK-Screen, a screen which he mostly coded as well.

Rulez !

The last part with 3d starfield and wireframe is wonderfull.

I remember watching the replicants part (plasma) at ivry with friends, a futur minds guy said "voila quand on se prend un peu la tete..."

His name is Michael Bittner ^___^

while the music is something i will never forget, there is too much precalced 3d stuff in here for me to thumb it up.

The ulm fullscreen scroller is damn hot, as is the music on the main menu.

Its nice little prod. I remember I was a bit dissappointed when I got it, for TEX and TLB did much better in the past.

I especially love the GIGATEX screen! The rest is okay but nothing special...

Not too many screens here and most of 'em are quite boring.

oh no that was the day "the fate" from ulm wanted to sign my copied demo disk. And Tyrem from "Resetables" had a lamer Sticker on his back without recognizing it. One more reason the independent was founded. :) hehe. So just a piggy here. The "bittner rap" was very funny.

Life's a bitch and then you die! :) Anyway excellent demo back then. It belong to the classics.

Especially enjoyed the GigaTex screen, probably due to MadMax music, very good that one. Also Manikin's 3d was very fast, and the circle scroll was cool too. A brilliant demo.

The portrait of Oxygene in the titlepic bears indeed a certain degree of
resemblance to the real person at that time. We went to the same
school. Schoofmoor ruled!
