Based on all the apologizing on the screen prior to the demo being shown I was expecting something really bad, but this was quite decent. Very 1996, but I've seen tons of 1996 AGA demos which were way more boring and ugly..

I agree - not bad at all!

Yes. Impressed, you should code more gfx stuff ;)

This would have been quite nice back in '96, there are some nice effects. Releasing it almost 20 years later in unfinished state deserves a thumb!

Great that it got released :) Hope you have more hidden productions, as this one is quite nice! ;)

I love the third scene with the energy sphere (?). It's like it contains all of my teen years in one screen.

The earlier youtube video seems to suffer from the moire caused by blitterscreen's zigzag pattern and uneven scaling. I made a 720p capture with UAE, cropped and downscaled to remove the pattern, then upscaled it to 720p. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgAKhKx501o

Preacher: The rotating transparent stuff is actually a skull I modelled and rendered a while earlier, just some lighting and offset effects added.

Well, all of the effects are 2d because I suck at math. I don't have any other demos waiting that would be at this stage. I was planning a demo with a lot better idea and script and borrowed parts of the Embassy's 3d engine but didn't have the energy and perspiration to get anything more done than the final scene with the skull (already seen in this demo), rising from the deep and floating on top of water with ripple and zbuffer effects.

I like that chilling mood in your prod. And don't worry about 3d. I actually liked it because the lack of it. Keep up with your own style man!

strange style but still enoyable.
