Beginning of the year I finally got in contact with main coders of HARD. Yes. the guys who coded Veronica and Joyride demo.

I received complete source what they could find from their productions and code snippets of the Joyride successor which was never released called "Dressed for Success".

So I spend times to get the old native assembler source into modern world (ATMAS2 source code plus Atari Macro assembler format ;=)) and so the idea of Nordlicht release appeared... It was tend to be released at the Grave digger compo but I added bits and pieces and so I tried to make a full release...

Coming from Arsantica series it was my first try since 1996 to code a full "90s" demo with fx that do not fit a scifi theme... so that's basicly the result.... :D

Then I spiced that up with some nice references like Amiga ball loading fx plus Thalion intro screen "desired" by Havoc.

sorry for being little bit short but was lacking of time... :D
Nice One Ring aka torus, and good tune! Didn't care for the obnoxious Amiga nostalgia; that almost never fits in any demo.

Somewhat devoid of content, but what's there is nice.

Nice, but the Thalion-like part should have been put at the end IMO.

Good demo.
And, personally, I agree with baah.
