What was the first demoscene prod you saw?

category: offtopic [glöplog]
Some C64 cracktro in the mid-80s, hard to remember which. One prod that stands out in my memory is the "F#%c SCC" demo by West Coast Crackers. :)

this is embarassing since everyone who meets me seems to think im OLDSK00L, but I saw my first prods at TP 1996 where I was to game like an idiot :) To my great embarassment I do not remember much from that party apart from all the gaming and porn I leeched (I was 16 so bear with me).

The first one I really truly fell in love with was actually 303 by Acme (yeah, the one with the wonderful singing by Vic) - i had that on a burned cdrom with a lot of other stuff and played it over and over again. I still love the singing!

haaa that good old Vic, he was a very a nice guy (and he is still I hope!). I remember he wanted to become professionnal musician but was actually working in a bakery or something like that. I absolutely don't know what happened to him and to others members like aap (who were in 3state later).

ho, and some years before I have seen my first "real" demo (Enigma by Phenomena in 1991) I have seen the famous Juggler somewhere between 1986 and 1988 :)

Boulder Demo by Tristar in 1988. I just couldn't believe my eyes - it ruled bigtime.

amiga/dos SK warez scene at that time :) but it was not introduced as
underground art but rather a kewl thing to show and promote your
leet piece of hw :)
made deep touch and until now i really want to play with that demo topics.

Oddly enough...

The first "prod" I saw was bb, the aalib demo. It was just chilling there on a knoppix liveCD, and I ran it.

...Does that count?

Apart from cracktros I quite vividly remember seeing this infamous BASIC animation on my C64 :P. That was probably around 1993.

Gosh, how could I forgot to mention RSI's Megademo.
Saw it first in 1990/91 on D!rt!e's miggy.

Yo! and, probably, Ballmania. I also remember some incredibly pretty Fairlight cracktros. All on PC.

The Cuddly Demo, probably not the first, but we played it so much it stuck in my mind.

Do any of the examples from the ZX Spectrum handbook count?

Oh and for the PC - this

The first thing I saw was the "Unreal" by Future Crew. Can You start any better? :-).

It was shown to be by my schoolmates big brother. Only thing I remembered afterwards was the amazing flying 3D spaceships in the early part. So far I had seen Captain Comic and Commander Keen on a PC, so 3D... WHOA!

There's first time for everything and I guess it's like in love: You really can't beat the "first time". At least what comes to the feeling.

Anyone else seen Unreal as Your first scene product?
