20 years ago the Omega demo was released. This was Omegas first release.
This was not the prettiest demo around but technically advanced for its time.
The demo was very rushed and quite buggy as we wanted to release it at the Sync Convention, the first convention we visited.
The demo is not that well known and got overshadowed by the Union Demo that was released the month after.

To celebrate the Omega demo we decided to release some old mostly unreleased work.

This is not a demo in the ordinary sense but a collection of demoscreens. Many incomplete.
In fact the only demo with sound is the demo we won the demo competition with at the Mega Leif Convention.
Back then we didn't think that that demo was good enough to release but it has been requested.
We hope your expectations of this mythical demo is not too high :)
There is also a demo showing a game we developed called Eutanasia as well as a bunch of pictures from RED.

These disks were compiled sometime in the summer/fall of 92 and sent to Atari in a try to impress them into contract with us somehow.
This was when the Falcon030 was about to be released.
I don't remember exactly what happened but we became official Falcon developers and had a Falcon pretty early.
XiTEC was a company owned by HAQ and TFE of Omega.

You can read more about the Omega demo as well as the stuff on these disks in the readme file.

Omega releases these disks as a historical document, hope you will enjoy or find them interesting.

Quite unexpected, thanks for sharing those cool things before they got lost.

It's a kind of Swedish New Year 3 somehow ;)

Ahhhh yes the missing winner demo from Mega Leif is in here! Thanks a million for releasing it. It's only been almost 17 years since I saw it last time :-) (BTW nice to meet you at Altparty!)

Great release with some pretty nice screens (the number of sprites in Eutanasia is really impressive). Thanks for the memory trip.

Damn! What an amazing thing to share!

ggn – you have my permission to spread my Eutanasia source code. But you have to get Red’s permission to distribute his graphics if you intend to include it.
I would be very happy if you could contact me at liesen@omegarulez.com and send me a copy of the source, you might actually be possessing some binary include files that I miss!

Wow, really impressive stuff!

Nice to have all that stuff, esp. the game preview is impressive.
Sad the stuff never was put together to a massive prod.

The distortion and 3d are nice.

Wow even my late 1990s PCs could not do this (with ordinary hardware). I've had my STe since 1994 (friend had it 1st in 1990) and it still rocks for me!

Fantastic demo! Thanks!

Great stuff, too bad Eutanasia was never finished. I was at the Expose Software booth at a french video game show in Paris in 199x something where we presented both Eutanasia and Euphoria, two products never finished but that people obviously enjoyed looking at :)

Music a bit repetitive, but Omega's 3d routines are fast!

Includes the winning demo from the Mega Leif convention held in Uppsala, Sweden 1992! I think the first prize in the demo competition was an Atari TT030. Anyways, I never thought I would ever watch this demo again, so to say the least I was very surprised when it was released! Thanks!
