2012, a new year which will have, undoubtably, many interesting and fun to come. For now meeting up with a close friend, since the mid/late eighties and going to the Datastorm 2012 party in Gothenburg, is a really nice start of the number 12.
After struggling with an unreleased demo dating from 1988 I finally gave up. It was too much of a hassle to release as the source is lost during the course of the years in between.
We stayed up until the last part of the demo compo which is the good old lovely C64. Many entries in all sub-compo part and my guess is that the Mahoney and Fairlight demo’s will have an equal share in the race. Mahoney showed off a really nice visual 3D effect and the overal composition of the Fairlight demo are both again the cutting edge.
