Simply THE BEST.

The demo is some kind of mysterious 'cause for a looooong time it was a subject of speculation whether it was 2 disc production or not. As the matter of fact, the Joker Team's gfx artist RYS had produced an outstanding animation which took a whole one disk - first disk. Back in the days when the floppies were quite expensive and also due to that fact that the second disk, the main part, was self-bootable, ppl decided to copy only the second one. That was the reason for the speculation. The first, animaion-olny disk thus then had started to be forgotten and even falled into the oblivion. Only few, if many, had 2 disks.
I was looking for that for a very long time and in 2012, thanx to one of my cronies (thank you JUBI =) we now have a pure pleasure to watch the whole production.
The demo was released on Luzers Team, Joker Team Copy-Party held in Gdynia, Trojmiasto, in Niovember, 1991.

Have a beer and good time.

Nice music, graphics and effects. Some of them are shown way too long though without any possibility to skip to the next part. There's also a nice bug in the vector bobs part, they can be zoomed with the mouse buttons but there's no clipping so the demo will crash as soon as the bobs are outside the visible screen boundary.

Thanks for sharing this piece of history, Sim. I had no idea that there was any second disk until now. And obviously I missed a lot - the animation by Rys was awesome! Still quite an enjoyable demo. Impressive gfx and a nice piano-led tune. Of course it's too long and slow, but I don't remember anyone complaining about it at the time :)

To precise cause it may introduce some confusions:
JUBI gave me inspiration by his YTvideo of this demo, which was the first I found on the net back than. Thus I got a motivation by it to look thru my disks and search more intensively for this release.
The rest is history ;).
