Lovely seeing a somewhat bigger demo for DOS again.
Running fine with sb16 on a real pc, just the shaky scroller in the beginning.

Both GUS and SB are supported.

Yes that scroller has that retrace issue with certain hardware combination which I mentioned @IRC :)

I don't remember this too well in detail anymore, but 'twas good. Was hoping for a bit more content though, and iirc a lot of the effects seemed a bit lofi (not in a good way). Byterapers quality though.

"Byterapers quality" heh in good way or bad way ? :)

Well good of course ;)

didn't like the poetry stuff but otherwise good flow and well deserved first place.

Very good, always happy to see new DOS releases. :) On the level of recent Amiga AGA stuff. A little heavy on the greets but the presentation was clever.

Perfect Demo!
Last scene is in there to make "Dead Roman" "Andromeda" again! :p
Thanks for Greets! (outside of your scandinavian greetings-list!)
Pure love, will rewatch a lot!

Great music, sync and graphics. The greetings poetry was a nice touch! Could've been better without the "normal" greetings part and the forced Amiga throwback though.

Awesome demo - great gfx, sound and flow!

Pentium III 800 MHz is wayyyy too fast for capture, polytunnel and feedback effects run way too fast. We'll add correct synced tube version soon.

wow, a dos demo in 2015! brings back the good aspects of 1990s demos, including an excellent dnb soundtrack. the end-ansi by h7 was the cherry on top!

How much RAM?

8M is not enough, 16M works, requirements is somewhere between ;)

Great demo.

So so. I didn't see any ants? :P

Relax :D

By the way, I love the music. Seems that remarkably good Protracker skills were involved in this demo's creation.

The flashing in the start was annoying, but I like Saviours dots....

Short explanation why "Relax ants" name. Original .mod was named "relaksantti.mod" which translates as "relaxant" -> I came up with name relax ants :D

Almost nostalgia quality.
