Probably the very first demo I was given the opportunity to contribute to.
Fond memories here, when I managed to load my desktop PC into a good old Millet hiking backpack and headed by train to Grenoble.

The demo was created at the party place, using HCL's 2D/3D engine (it was called "Sodium" iirc), coded by the sweet & skilled Diabolo (can't find his name in the Pouet's database, doh)

Most of the graphic effort was driven by Danube, who already had some experience in terms of demoscene quick'n'dirty workflow. I can't remember what 3D software he used, but it prolly was 3DSMax already (myself was using, well, lurking with LW3D, hence the lazy teapot).

You can see how the demo inherited from a preview HCL major release ("The Train"), same 2D fx, and the particle/smoke emitter seen in "The Train" steam engine was reycled on the teapot mentionned above.

Lluvia did a super lovely soundtrack, working on my PC (can't remember if/why I had ScreamTracker/FastTracker installed on my harddrive, maybe she found an install of that thing at the party place, as there was no way we could imagine having an internet connection on site ?)

Nice party (in Grenoble), surrounded by the mountains, nice people.
Those were the days :)
