well, i like that. only one scene with very little movement, but the tones played in the background are nice. and the text fits in quite well, too.

Erm, robotriot, there are TWO scenes... just press space :)
However, it's a nice, little conceptual demo, almost no code, but perfect minimal design.

Cool design, a bit short though.

when i looked at the screenshot i thought the dude was wanking, and the 'playing solitaire' thing was a joke ;-)

Jar: afaik you're the first one making that connection. A dirty mind is ..

Hempest: cool that you love Sander & Mindflow, but I need some loving too! I did much more than just the code, you know ..

Bloody original for a C64 demo! I like the music, although one more pattern wouldn't have hurted.

Way to go marco!

Mindflow and I had a conversation about which way our music was heading... simplistic, minimal but still stirring an emotion... a-tonal experiments. Well, this is a promising first step towards this. Mindflow, keep it coming :).

i think the "tune" is taken from some commercial underground electro ep, tho ;=)

Interesting story about that band who took the music from this....at least they now give credits.

I sense an affiliation with someone linked to art exhibitions. You could have made a demo about it. Maybe we should all write text plot routines to express our deep, deep thoughts instead? Just think how much time we would save.
