As I remember, this must be my favoritest C64 demo from Byterapers..

Ugly block pixels as ever on C64, but nicer. I like the bump mapped or voxel tunnel(How can you realize what the fx is with so big pixels ;)

Cool fx! I will have to see it again to remember this demo. I think that I have to see also the first series of Follow the Sign..

Sadly, this demo was never finished. More info about this can be found on thier website.

despite so called big pixels this demo is a masterpiece. music from AMJ kicks! and Mr Sex did some really great effects... the blue whirpool is really cool with the follow the sign text over it and bump is great as well and ofcourse there's more cool stuff. i dont like voxels though - i've seen much better of these on c64!

The size of the pixels, equals the size of your dick! The bigger, the better!

One of the best c-64 demos ever...

And who cares if it's 8x8 or 4x4, as long as it's fast

Imagine being at your first demo party ever and you've never seen demos in other platforms than pc. Then comes the c64 demo compo and this one. There are no words to describe how amazing it was.

byterapers are the sovereign masters of c64 coding... blazingly fast bump mapping, zooming, you name it. add outstanding music and gfx and you have a real winner!

phloam beginning part is kind of similar, tunnel and makers names front of it.

windscreens of our minds
purged with a rag of pain
goaf(?) to my soul it grinds
yet the attempt is in vain

daughters of disparege
pave a path for our pawn
guidepost new from courage
erect it facing dawn

follow the sign
follow the sign
