It's a bit boring, but it had unique ideas, which is what counts. As the title suggests, it centers around a book of optical illusions.

yeah well, optical illusions ok, but its fuckn ugly I think, even for 95, and the "ancient text" looks like fninish =)

it doesn't look finnish to me. :)

i liked this demo a lot back in '95.. it has lost some of it's magic now. i still think it's cute and it has some very good ideas.

And here I haven't voted too? I like Craw Productions because each of their demos is a nice concept, like this or Infinity.

well damn. this is by far one of the best na-demos i've seen. sure the graphics are hideous but they remind me of some of the good dos-games i've played. and the optical illusions and different design are something to really aplaud for. a positive surprise.

nice effort, great design, but bad graphics.

Great idea, not so great graphics, music and execution (feels very rough around the edges). So a piggy.

Nice! I like the design, and the music.

I may be replying to a comment from 10 years ago, but to clear things up, the "ancient text" is actually mostly Japanese.

About the demo, hontou ni omoshiroi yo. ;)

cool ideas
Great ambitious concept for the time. The end result is far from perfect but it feels really unique.
