pretty nice raymarched fractals! what's the SDF here?

This looks better than what I can do in 64KB.

Most realistic visuals I have seen on 256b. Seems like a raymarcher from shadertoy ported in DOS.

Cool ambient landscape

Really nice. The color=raymarching_step_count schema works pretty well here. And the cameras too

lovely

Nice atmosphere. This looks like old black-and-white documentary film. Unbelievable that is only in 256b.

I've grown really bored with the 256b raymarchers with the same sort of glitches and marginally different but still similar geometry. All over again.

But. This. Wow. I mean. Uhhh. Wow. This is next level stuff. A concept and a movie all in one.

Absolutely incredible
I knew there are those small Fractal City SDFs
On Shadertoy, and thought about doing something similar
But pondering it is one thing, actually doing it in fucking 256b
So that it actually is watchable, without GPU ... Just mad

Next level stuff, clear winner in my book ❤️

wow.. that's just the perfect scene/setting for such 256b raymarchers. Could have done without the mirror part in the end though.

Wat?
I also like the weird stipple effect. Don't know if it's visual emphasis, rendering artifact or some weird performance trick. It just looks cool.

And every time I think 256bs couldn't surprise me anymore... This is just perfect. Not only did you cram an SDF fractal renderer into that size (I'll excuse the Cherenkov lighting here ;), but the carefuly chosen camera angles and the way you made the performance limit into a strength with that update pattern - chef's kiss.

Thanks everyone for all the kind comments, I am still amazed how well this one is received :)

Now after a bit of Revision recovery and coming back to daily business, here's some small updates.

added source to the prod link section
updated pouet nfo
updated download link content, archive contains:
- remnants.asm (source)
- remnants_dosbox.com (dosbox compatible, but slow AF)
- updated nfo with credits to Xor (@XorDev), where i found the original fractal formulation first

The available source is now commented and a further optimized version compared to the party.
With a few changes and thanks to Rrrolas and Hellmoods proposals this now is 249 bytes with same content.
i decided to spend those 7 bytes to optionally enable experimental PCSpeaker sound, if you compile with "%define PCSPEAKER" active.
