a demo containing many parts, although nothing spectacular. you get to see a picture on how Max Payne's (http://www.maxpayne.com) lead programmer looked like in '93 :)

I liked this demo a lot when it came out, probably because it had a little more "attitude" than most PC demos at the time. It has the obligatory vectorball+scroller part (one of the best and last, sigh) plus Dust pics in wavy 3d, a nice "voxel" landscape (see above) and various other silly odds and ends.

yeah! that's what I call an old-school "pc" demo... don't expect fresh design but only a great demo-style attitude!

I think this must be the one that sais "Let the motherfucking saga continue"... I found that pretty cool when I was small, but I cannot remember much more.

Breez: Hahaha, I remember that problem... But on most machines it worked and I really like this piece of art.

Loved this back in the day. Especially the music playing during the vectorballs part.

Viewing it a few days ago I found it aged. The sections in the demo seem to go on forever.

Some parts have a mixed-music engine; they use 4-channel MOD mixing for some voices and Adlib FM synth for others, which makes Dust the only other PC group to do this other than Renaissance.

remember watching this back when it came out. i guess it was their first voxel-landscape since it has distortion bugs which look ugly. the vectorball-scene is good. nice this demo overall.

I feel aesthetics like this should've been left to the past by then already.

the voxels at the end somewhat save it
it's quite ugly and the parts way to long, but excellent code for 1993, smooth effects and some transitions!
