Coke Zero - Revision 2015 Demo
Demo Atari 2600 Coke Zero Revision 2015
A while ago I had some discussion with SvOlli about improving a part of his winning Bang! demo called "Snake Sprite". Initially he wanted to add more colors, but I thought more about removing the repositioning gaps. This seemed like something never done before inside a 48 pixel kernel, so I took the challenge.
After making it possible, SvOlli suggested to integrate my little demo into a bigger mega demo. So I spiced up the demo a bit, scripted it into 4 parts and added some pompous demo text scroller. Unfortunately the mega demo didn't make it, so we decided that it should stand by itself, now called Coke Zero (you will understand the name when watching it).
Since I have no talent for this, SvOlli contacted Skyrunner, a musician who would provide the necessary demo track. Space was very limited at that time, so it was quite a challenge for both of us to squeeze in the music. My part was optimizing for space and for that I improved Paul Slocum's old music player once again. Now it is fully customizable and even more space efficient than it was before. Skyrunner had the harder part, since he had to please me AND the space limitations.
This Easter weekend the world's biggest pure Demoscene event Revison 2015 happened and Svolli and Skyrunner who both admitted the party (look out for SvOlli's seminars on YouTube and Skyrunner's other prod) submitted my little demo to the 4K Oldschool Intro competition. I have been watching much of the event via live streaming and saw some great demos. Today the Prizegiving event happened and to my big surprise, our little demo became 2nd!
