Very nice demo by TPC.
Opens with a cool spotlight over brickwall text effect.
Instead of the '92 standard scrollie text, TCP opted to go with a floating cube, that spewed forth all the characters from various positions on the screen.
Very cool :)

The demo was coded in about a week.

Included some pretty nice effects, aswell as the '92 standard 3D object rotations.

VGA / Roland (only)

The best Phoney Coders demo. I've got to see that again! The first wild write I see was here. When I was thinking to try coding such one, I am still inspired by this.

There was also an animation of a working engine with some sine scroller? And other nice parts..

It needs a Roland yes. Quite a rare soundcard, what were it's capabilites btw? I am wondering if I can found one so that I can run this demo with sound. Was it the only one playing Roland?

It combines samples with synthesis. Sounds very very good when used well.

Any of the Lucasarts games show this.

Fuck! It actually plays sound with dosbox, but it's all wrong I guess..
But the other two demos from them, it crash when I chose roland but this one works but too wrongly :P
