Very neat DOS demo from smash (designs). Great graphics (software) effects and nice music. You should glimpse at it!
if you've already seen sleepless from smash designs then you'll find that they've lost a lot of their quality with sleepless, compared to event horizon, which is a really cool demo, i particularly enjoy the dancing ET with the lights ...

I liked this too. But I liked Sleepless much more (Perhaps because of the musics (especially!), the animations and the atmosphere?)

Yeah,. the dancing ET definitely rules! Chromatic lightings and rays are also favorite too..

Great demo, not as good as sleepless but a great demo nonetheless ...
and i disagree with fled, the colors at that dancing scene are very nice, they create a great atmosphere ...

Erm, the dancing(?) alien ruins it a little bit...
But I adore that funky SiD tune at the end. :)

Very good demo. Not as good as sleepless but make no mistake ppl, this one kicks ass too. Great music and the dancing scene is absolutely beatiful.

A lengthy software demo. Pretty nicely done, but it wasn't super interesting. I can't quite decide if it deserves a thumb or not...

I guess I'll leave it as neutral.
Bah, Shake that Boogy!

it was a blast at the ms2k-1, and most people thought so too, else it wouldn't have been 1st =)
the part with the alien got me, tho coders might say it's pretty easy to do it .. but what do i know.

Kickass demo and good sound!

ah yes, remember this very well. i -loved- the part with the star trek-sample and the light coming out of the tube. i believe the movement of the dancing "alien" is ripped from some public domain-file, or at least it looks pretty darn similar.

Definetly the best Smash Designs PC-Prod. E V E R!!! Sound, atmosphere, software renderer and everything is just great! (especially the sound blew me away on the party)

This demo seems to have special support for S3 Trio64V+. However i can't see any difference compared to normal VESA modes.

This demo runs in DOSBox Daum now, btw. (so far it was a no-no for lack of proper MMX support); only 1fps though. ;)

A link to the Windows version has now been added. Crashes at the dancing alien scene for several people including me, but supposedly works for others.
Great!! (Only watched the vid)

I keep remembering the effect with the light rays all the time :)

Big 3d, some nice screens, music with high untapped potential, but still a good demo.
