The X’2008 demoparty: All releases online!

Booze Design raises the bar for tech achievement on a C64 demo.

Booze Design raises the bar for tech achievement on a C64 demo.

So, another X party has finished! This milestone of the C64 scene has delivered some of the best productions of the last years, as always. Let’s have some of the official blurb:

“13 years of X parties, 10 years at the farm, the 9th X in total and still going strong. Who would’ve thought.

The biannual c64-only event in rural Netherlands has been one of its kind in 8-bit partyland. Not only do you get brilliant demo/graphics/music competitions, but you also get a nice bed, hot showers, proper food, breakfast and all the beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee you can drink.
For the competitions and performances you can count on a high quality big screen and audio equipment to keep the cows awake.”

The stream of releases is BIG, as always the C64 scene proves to be one of the most productive in the demoscene, and the quality bar is usually quite high. This party has seen the release of the tech-groundbreaking demo “Edge of Disgrace” by Booze Design, which has raised the bar for C64 demo tech quality very, very high. I can’t wait for X’2010 when this demo should be surpassed by a new one :)

Other personal favourites are Pearls for Pigs from Xenon, and My Beauty from Fairlight (featuring music by mr. Goto80)

On the music side, I can recommend to give a listen to the tunes by Randall and Fanta.

All the info comes thanks to the Commodore Scene Database!
