Tough choice! IMO the most competitive award besides WIP.

I love demos and how much they push the systems to their limits with creative graphical and audio innovations! It reminds me of when I would watch C64 cracktros in the 80s that were usually more interesting than the games themselves, hahah.

 

Tough choice! IMO the most competitive award besides WIP.

Just a stupid question. Lack of Atari 8bit computer demos is by design in the nominee list (it looks its VCS/2600 only)? Or because lack of good productions for 8-bit computers this year? If the latter - I would argue a bit... :)

 

EDIT: never mind, just read small letters :) 2600 Homebrew. So perfectly fine with me, crawling back to my cave :P

M by Flush is pretty amazing, so it got my vote but it was close with Alpha Cucks by Dentifrice (that scaling and rotation!!!). I still can't believe the 2600 is capable of demos like this!
