What the heck is the name of this demo?

category: general [glöplog]
 
I remember a demo from 1994-1996-ish for DOS, small .zip file (around 400K or less), that didn't have a ton of effects but had a very unique rendering style; it displayed objects mostly made out of "meta objects" spheres, etc. and I remember thinking it was one of the coolest effects I'd seen. The only thing I can liken it to is how Ecstatica (http://www.mobygames.com/game/shots/p,2/gameId,741/gameShotId,3816/). Come to think of it, it may instead have been objects made up of 3D voxels like the fighters in Savage Warriors. Anyway, some of the objects were presented against a flat green background, IIRC. And the objects themselves were, I think, an animated puppet, a snake or maybe spider -- simple nursery toy objects?

I can't for the life of me remember the name or group of that demo!!! Is this ringing a bell for anyone?

This is why I should watch most demos more than once :-/

I was thinking the Ultraforce Megademo... but it's evidently not.

Mmm,. I found the Ecstatica rendering very original, I'd love to find that demo you mention too..

After watching the monsters in some Extatica screenshots, I remember a scene production that features something similar near the end, but it's a 4k (http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=12222)

Ultraforce is a good bet. But I think more like this: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=3540 ..some objects where made of balls - like some stick fiure or a helicopter and stuff.

the Ecstatica rendering reminds me of this

No, what I remember was definitely not "bollz" ala Vectdemo/Ultraforce, it was more sophisticated than that -- in fact I think it was 3D voxels. Seriously. Ring a bell, anyone? I have it *somewhere* in an archive but I'm not looking forward to digging through 10,000 demos...
