I'm rather disappointed by the lack of the promised credit, but the demo was refreshing to watch. ;)

I cut the capture short of the screen. I don't have capture hardware here. The credit and the 512 color screen is in the rom

Ok, the link that pouet has is the latest.

That's some stylish shit.
Just felt a little need for some PCM drums on the music, just to sound even cooler in my opinion.

hehe, don't shoot me either cos I was the "someone" who said it. The credit is there now, all is good :)

What a nice demo by the way! Love it!

I'd expect more from a 7mhz 68000 than this. struggles to display a plasma made of big pixels, a flat cube. gfx is nice tho.

Nice! MegaDrive demoscene is hotting up :)

@Oswald not only cpu is responsible, graphics architecture also: MD != Amiga ;)

Best MegaDrive Demo so far! I really like the funky music and stylish screens.

I got huge Nineties flashbacks from this, in a very good way.

Brought back some memories playing with a Genesis :)

(yes, it's a nostalgic thumb up)
I enjoyed it.

Nice! All of Sigflup's previous effects, and then some. There's no way I'm not thumbing up a MegaDrive demo.

Let's be honest: Technically, there's room for improvement.
But the soundtrack is neat and i like the style, so this is a motivational thumb up hoping to see more on the Mega Drive from you.

@alk, what graphic architecture is able to slow down a 7mhz 68000 so it underperforms a 0.984khz 6510?
added on the 2013-06-18 18:59:19 by Oswald Oswald
Loved it!

Warm welcome to Planet Earth, hope to see more (environmental friendly) stuff from you guys.

Next project will be dark and futuristic. Sort of Blade Runner on steroids.

Here's the long awaited breakthrough in medically themed demos for retro consoles since the release of 'Doctor' by Trilobit on the Atari VCS!

Nice mixing of story, soundtrack and effects, great work guys.

@Oswald: I've read somewhere that the Genesis is only allowed to access the videoram during the vblank or something like that. That sounds too restrictive to me, I always thought the Genesis is a beast when seeing the games (same thing happens with SNES I think) but the demos were always not showing.
added on the 2013-06-18 21:19:16 by Optimus Optimus
If I recall correctly you can access the VDP even during display, only with limited speed since the display is stealing cycles. So it is faster to access during VBL, but still possible at other times as well.
On the Master system (Sega's 8-bit machine) it is a bit worse, there you have to manually keep track on how fast you access VDP during non-vbl time and do the correct delays, otherwise you get garbage gfx.
The Genesis/Megadrive at least I think handles this internally, so it just delays your VDP access.

Awesome! Great to see you releasing more stuff for the Megadrive. It's definitely underutilized. Cute story. I found the music slightly too cheesy but I realize groovemaster303 and Jredd were going for the oldskool vibe. :D

I too am noticing a cube-deficiency on my behalf lately.

Storytelling needs to do more than cutesy retro-appeal to work. This doesn't work for me at all.

Thumb up for the platform choice and for the story that copes with the obligatory devices of old school demos (cube, duck, rubber... :))

It's not perfect, but it's Megadrive, and I sure as hell couldn't have done any better ^^
