DescriptionSubmit Description
The Eurocon2005 Demo was created by Simon Quernhorst for the Eurocon 2005 gathering in Bochum, Germany. This isn't a demo of a game, but follows the tradition of creating graphics and sound demos that push a system's hardware to the limits. Demos of this nature have been created for many years, and you can learn more by visiting sites such as scene.org.

The demo starts with music and a moving diagonal pattern fading in. Afterwards, a logo scrolls left and right through the screen and the pattern changes style and priority over the logo according to the bass of the music. Additionally, the whole screen moves vertically up and down. After several seconds the first part disappears and a 2005 logo is presented. It flashes to the music and after a few moments a band with a Germany scrolltext appears over the logo, moves in all directions and changes colors and priority over the 2005 logo to the bass of the music. The demo then restarts with the next of four alternative passes and loops indefinitely.

Simon created a run of 33 cartridges which feature the Eurocon 2005 logo on the label, and each cartridge contains an LED that blinks while the demo is running. Each cartridge is numbered, and cartridge 01 features a yellow LED, cartridge 02 features a green LED, and the remaining 31 cartridges use a red LED.
