One of the first demos I ever saw. Still makes me laugh and the kaos music was excellent at the time. No (serious) effects, just fun! :-)
rulez added on the 2001-11-02 16:50:57 by moT moT
Good sound, good gfx, no big effects.
I love it...so much !
La partie avec les canards qui font du beat box, c'était trop fort :-)

This was my sole inspiration for becoming a scener.

Absolutely classic stuff. Adult cartoons, rave demos, animations, ducks immitating a beat box and more. An awesome demo! Kaos :)
rulez added on the 2002-01-17 22:25:04 by z5 z5
definately a classic demo!! every scener with respect for himself should watch this.. :)

this one rocks. so many different parts, great graphics, and the kaos music really owns :)

i never liked this one. but it's a classic, i the like end tune and i don't want to lower my avarage vote even more so i don't give it a thumb down although it deserves one in my opinion.
added on the 2002-04-07 20:06:51 by cer cer
some parts are funny, still mostly this is boring. no thumbs up or down.

africa.mod from this demo is still a classic. the production itself is ok, i think i found it more funny when i was 14 ..

I remember it was really a great demo the first time I watched it... and it still has a special place in my personal demo best of :)
rulez added on the 2002-08-29 20:34:33 by Dbug Dbug
Classic early production. Many hated it cuz it wasn't that great for code - prolly equivalent to MinimalAnimal today (:
mempheria, of course, i actually wanted to put this comment to the megademo 2, hence i mixed up the pouet-entries =)
added on the 2003-06-05 11:47:25 by dalezr dalezr
Not the first demo i saw, but the oldest i can remember watching :) This was a definite classic back then, with the humour, the cool tunes, and the many annoying scrollers :) I'll watch the divx for old times sake, then take a look at 2 (never did manage to find a copy of that back in those days!)
rulez added on the 2003-07-04 16:45:27 by psonice psonice
That was good... but what happened to all the scrollers? must of been another demo.

A massive kick-ass megademo, those guys should come back :)

Fuckings to all the technical nerds who slagged this demo off. Who cares if it's technically poor it is a damn good show!
rulezcdc added on the 2003-11-21 23:45:22 by Shanethewolf Shanethewolf
the first demo that i really enjoyed. back then i thought that rsi megademo sucked in comparasion, since the only good part in that one was the farting worm. my taste has changed a bit in the last 12 years, but i still like this one

Well, very funny back then. Didn't like it as much as my friends since it didn't contain any advanced code. But hey, it's one of the classics and the graphics guys must have put in a lot of work.

There are much better Amiga prods around.

Never fell for this back in the day. Too much waiting for another basic, slow part with nothing of interest.

Wasn't a fan of the poop humor back then either. I guess the beatbox chicks is the best part, but that's sadly half-baked too. Could have been something if it was a whole song.

Remember seeing this back in '90/91 and being amazed on what this new "to me" Amiga could output... as i was still just a heavy gamer on the c64. Still love it today, and BB Megademo 2. Kaos Baby!

basically, what photon said. also, it was one of the top of the "feel free to overwrite if running low" pile of floppies. but need to admit that it was a popular among general population in the days, so piggie.

"First rave demo?" Depends on what you mean with "rave demo" I guess.. But no, definitely not the first. Out of the well known ones, e.g. Coma by Rebels was released months before this.
rulez added on the 2016-02-27 16:27:38 by break break
But yes, this is of course one of the major classics and milestones in the scene history. Naturally caused lots of hate among the code-oriented sceners back in the day. I exchanged some emails with the coder a few years ago trying to find out some details about their works, nice guy. See "Alphawave Association" for earlier releases by the coder, dating back to 1988 :)

I remember this one. Never really liked Budbrains productions but it's ok for the purpose. At least some parts made me smile and it proposed something different from the other demos at the time.

Just nothing special here. I remember actively disliking it back in the day for the lack of effects, now it just feels like I don't care much, so oink.
added on the 2017-08-06 10:40:43 by Nosferatu Nosferatu
well no
A classic for sure, although the Hustler part is clearly not as good as Gammal Man and could perhaps have been moved to its own production, or omitted completely.

I just watched a Red Dwarf episode without a laugh track and it just wasn't the same. Then it came to me that this is the only demo that has a laugh-track.
rulez added on the 2021-05-16 19:35:16 by rloaderro rloaderro
A real classic. Some great tunes and I remember some good laughs when seeing it for the first time. One of the few demos that does not take itself and the demo scene too serious and that's a good thing.
