A nice demo, but, ahem, where's Hardwired?! Somebody upload it!

Not their finest demo, IMHO. Apart from the typical cinematographic intro the rest of the effects were already old when it was released.

Kyd & Balle = success

The effects in this demo weren't old when it was released - the 1-pixel plasma was never seen before.

Wavemaker: are you so sure that "the rest of the effects were already old"? I seem to remember that Sunjohn/Hannibal was one of the first to do rubbervectors with this demo.. could be wrong though...
Anyway, code music and graphics (especially the purple&orange logo) really kicks!

Good demo, Jesper Kyd's music made it immortal. Deserves more attention. :)

I remember the boys from Alliance Design/Quartex made a loud moan, when it was announced that they only got 2nd place. But I still believe this was the right winner - but by a VERY small margin.
added on the 2005-01-28 13:19:38 by Steel Steel
I agree with Steel. Made a great impact on the bigscreen with that great looking plasma and the fine raytraced anims.

My first well-known demo :-) Like people said, most of the effects were old, and I was not the first to do rubber vectors, but I think I was first to add lightsources. Anyway, this demo was much more about design than programming, and that is why it beat other, technically superior, demos in the competition. I'm quite happy with the result (plus, I got to meet a bunch of people that I would end up working with later :-)

Oh, yes. It was one of the first demos I saw. And it still rocks.

great demo
the video behind the video link seems to have been made with a buggy emulator tho :(

This one was really impressive back then because of its highly advanced design. Largely
underestimated IMHO.

One of my favourite demos of '91. Cool attitude throughout the whole production. Soundtrack hit the spot, even though that 'signature' synth-guitar was sampled from Vangelis' Nerve Centre.
rulez added on the 2008-08-13 02:07:22 by Mel Mel
One of my most played demos of all time. The soundtrack is incredible and the demo has a really captivating atmosphere. A masterpiece.

first plasma I have seen, and to day the nicest. I guess this is also the first amiga demo I have ever seen. It was very shocking after the c64. Still love this demo to day, havent aged a lot imho. very nice design, classicmusic.

here's a thumb for the music. and the incredible pic in the screenshot. didn't care too much about most of the fx, but whatever.

I still remember the jaw dropping to the floor when the demo started so fast. Later learned the trick of the looped sample ect.

@amigadreams: No. The 1992 one is Demon Download (which is also quite a bit less interesting overall)

thx corrected
Utterly boring and ugly as sin. The end music is the only even remotely positive thing in this.

Great demo.

But, for Christ sake... What a utterly boring and repetitive music.
Jesper KYD, with all my respect, had only ONE style, imo: that with smashing hammers, hihats and all the metal rubbish striking each other...
Even on the Sega MegaDrive he worked on, it was all the same "lithany"...
He did some good Future Compser tune(s) thou...

It took him literaly ages to develope into something, sight, more interesting...

sim: with Future Composer tunes i think you mean Jesper Kristensen, not Kyd (many have mixed these two, both are danes too). As for the style, IMO Kyd had, in many cases, much more interesting approach in the long run than a lot of his colleagues at the time.
