This intro is about the 5 stages of grief people experience when a loved
one dies. It is named after Kharon. The ferryman of Hades who carries
souls of the newly deceased across the river Styx that divided the world
of the living from the world of the dead. This intro is ment to represent
a modern hi-tech rail version of that trip to the underworld.

Made in only 2 hours before the deadline, so excuses if some things seem
a bit rough around the edges :S

That's pretty cool. Lot's of 256b evolved into intros with sound and context, more than just effects.

Couldn't you have put some more content in 256 bytes?

I tried running this on multiple computers, both old and new, and it hanged everywhere. Tried on a P3 with MS-DOS and a core i5 with 256boss. I'll give it another try on the core i5 with a bootable freedos usb stick at some point.

Thanks for the feedback Nuclear. Its been tested with Freedos on my i7 laptop (a freedos version is included in the zip). Hope that works out. I haven't tested on MS-DOS., 256boss or XP yet, but will make sure to do so in the near future and try to add appropriate versions to the package if possible.

Very nice. Liked the sound as well, except maybe the constant drilling sound being bit too dominant :)

feels like this is one of the few 256b intros that could just as well be a demo and it'd be just as good and effective, i.e. among the highest compliments there is for an intro of any size

also one of the few cases where the audio actually complements—or is even essential—in a byte intro =)

There's been more impressive 256b intros, but this was definitely ok.
