The Weekly Demo

Monarchy & FIRE – Sabrina Digi 2010 (2010)

Allegedly released to commemorate Sabrina Salerno’s new release of 2009, these guys made a little demo which includes nice mosaic effects AND a digital audio routine running on teh stock C16 or Plus/4. Pretty impressive.

I also have a Sabrina Salerno fetish, so I love this thing :D

FST – FST Trackmo 2 (2010)

“Trackmo” is a word that describes a certain type of demo of the Amiga era.

Big demos used to be called “megademos”, which were an assortment of routines, many times each with its own music, that were presented to the viewer one after the other or selected by the user on whichever order they might wanted to watch them.

The trackmo is as big as a Megademo and in many ways similar (one routine after the other) but it’s played like a videoclip, in one shot, under one or two soundtracks, and usually has sound coordination. These were very popular in the Amiga and many of the biggest classics are of this format (like 9 Fingers).

C64 demos are not usually trackmos but in the late years they have started being so, and the name just stuck. Here’s a very Amiga-inspired trackmo from the FST crew, released at Assembly 2010

Inversion – Crushed (2010)

Seems like the sceners are a bit slow posting the Assembly demos on YouTube for the oldschool competition, so this won’t be as easy as I thought, but patience will pay off.

I start an almost month-long tour schedule this Friday, so I Won’t be around TCTD until past mid-September. Therefore I will post a bunch of stuff in the following 3 ays so you don’t miss me :P
I will try to post some stuff from Mexico and Japan too, kind of keep a travel log if I find something interesting for the website.
Anyway, this was the highest-ranked  C64 demo at Assembly, it has some really cool moments, it’s not fantastic, bu it keeps it fresh, and one of the pictures (the one with a girl and a jellyfish) has been created in a procedural way which is pretty fantastic.

Enjoy this demo:

Dekadence & Accession – Grind (2010)

The 2010 edition of Asssembly has left us with a bunch of nice stuff to chew on. As it appears on the Interweb, properly captured in YouTube pleasure, I will make a good selection and post it next week, because I am leaving on tour (Mexico + Japan) and I won’t be able to update this column until I return, which will be more than a month.

So, for now, I leave you with the winner of the oldschool competition. An Amiga demo, running, allegedly, on a 68030 @ 25Mhz, which by today’s Amiga demoscene standards (060 @ 100Mhz), it’s  pretty low spec and it means my 030@50 can happily run it. Yay!

Very cool work from Britelite and very interesting metal-inspired vibe.
