The first public release by White Shadow of Shadow Productions (later a member of Renaissance), for our trusty old school machines (pre-386).

Some technical info, although I'm only watching it in DosBox at the moment so the colors and effects have all gone bonkers!

First of all I believe the demo is in 320x200 or 240 16color VGA mode, with more than 16 colors on screen. At the top we have a 4-bitplane background, which has some very colorful raster/copper bars behind it, but which don't show in DosBox :( On top of those is a 1-bitplane fast scroller with some sort of sinusoidal bouncing. Underneath those we have the Shadow Productions logo, which has the "SHADOW" part bouncing. I can't tell much else as the colors are missing and messed up, and memory fails me.

All in all this "screen hack", even though simple, was small and rather nice back in the day, other than the touchy/buffered keyboard code which doesn't let me take screenshots easily :)

Even though it's rather simple, and White Shadow's first public release, he had other un-released screens at the time (1991!). I'll look for them and put them up one day.

R.I.P. Dave!

what solO2 said.
Btw, I wonder why 8k seems to be less popular than <=4k and 64ks,
