The fist demo by the pioneers. Released in 1987

One of the very first demos on the Atari ST. Maybe even the first real one besides "grafikundsound demo"

the hostilities against the Amiga (ball) were already engaged ^__^

p01: I don't remember whether I noticed or not this amiga-ball joke back then :)
The idea and the graphics were really nice, especially considering the release date.

By the way, The Exceptions had absolutely nothing against Amiga. They even released the famous Amiga Demo
a few months later.
Just in case some Amiga people wondered ;)

Cool stuff. ES gfx was in the beginning, but already good.

"classic masters" of the ST :) No ST crew really ever had something against the Amiga. It was only very funny/nice to code cool Demos on machine without the same hardwaresupport like an Amiga. Who ever spreaded the rumor about that ATARI vs. AMIGA war, he influenced the coders to do some better demos on both machines.

Reminds me to the graphics of the game Dragonfly which came out years later... the connection is clearly visible! ;-)

My first encounter with anything called 'demo', thanks to the Page 6 PDL.

The kind of early demo that showed that the ST could display more than 16 colors at the same time :)
