And so many other superlative i just can't think of right now.
Fucking awesome mindblowing tune by Audiomonster.

Words are not enough, design at it's best.

I owe my nick and a big part of my addiction to computer graphics and the demo scene to this demo. BB Image

Finally, I took my fingers off my ass and downloaded WinUAE to see that demo for the second time of my life.

The track by AudmioMonster is mythic too. ( I hope my neighbours enjoyed it as much as I did :p )

Even though the flow could have been more dynamic, it was really outstanding (code and ideas) back then and the music was awesome.

An outstanding prod which really showed how skilled Thomas Landspurg was.

That tune, wow, just had to comment on it again, i'm sorta lost for words how damn awesome it is.

WIN! I love the first part, how it breaks into the "3D world" just by shifting perspective. Music rocks too.

Cool thing, it uses scripting language so anyone can make his own demo perhaps if he didnt protect the interpreter with some kind of checksum or something.

yeah very good work with excellent graphics and music.

Sweet 3D, good backdrops, nice ideas... But still a bit boring.

A classic one. The story looks interesting.

Landspurg's best one before he got a Life(tm) like the rest of us. Vectors are less buggy but with equally eyefisting colors as in Trip to Mars. It's also a great show that retains interest, with a monster tune by Audiomonster/TSL :)

Haha, I love this, never seen it before!

Part 2 is amazing!

Yeah! Thomas showed me the source code once (we needed to retrieve some 3D objects from the demo for work). I was amazed by the maturity of his DLL-like dynamic scripting system. And the music.... my god!

Well, I can't say this demo touched me that much, but at least it is almost perfect in look and feel.

Was awesome back in the day, in present it feels outdated for me.....nostalgic thumb I guess

Nice indeed.

Surprisingly fun, especially the second half. Relatively consistent aesthetic and quality, much more thought put into the end product compared to most of its contemporaries.

So charming!

I like a music band scene. The second part is also very nice and atmospheric.

3d demos are still boring, Thomas, but this one did indeed make them interesting for a while :)

What, never commented this one? A milestone, often to be imitated afterwards.

A solid quality prod forever. And an Audio Monster.

I mean wtf?!
How could i have missed ever seeing this before? for almost 30 years?

I guess the answer is all of this:
1) Having 25 contacts, getting like 40 packages with 1-4 disks a month doesn´t cover all the releases in 1991!
2) being happy of having managed to swap a C=64 + almost 1000 disks against an Amiga500 + 14 disks (full of lame games, even without cracktros mostly!) was making me happy already! (making me supersad until today for real!)
3) being too young, although born in 1978, made me not having any income at that time, not being able to afford anything, f.e.:
4) a modem would have helped! (i did modem-trading in 1992-1995, although seldomly, as i only borrowed some modems for a few days each time, back then!)

so, i really thought i knew it all...from back in time, aswell as back-watching what i missed back then many years later, but this one...
...it´s almost Melon Dezign memberwise, just a lot better than Melon ever delivered codewise! ;)

I feel ashamed, but maybe i can´t for not having ever seen this before! or it´s just a hoax and i just fell for it! :D

Prod: splendid stuff! Feels a bit Odyssey-inspired, which aswell inspired me to finally get an Amiga, after watching RSI Megademo in the local store for 2 years+ and then seeing Odyssey made me swap one for my beloved C=64 finally!
Only thing: Odyssey came out 6 months later! ;) (must be a hoax!)

This thing absolutely rulez, if it really came out in june 1991! ;)
