Hmm, i think this demo doesn't showed Halcyon's maximum abilities.
very good, maybe not technology-wise, but it left me with goosebumps. Not a great deal of demos can do that =)

A very good demo, with an incredible atmosphere, and some really goodlooking effects.

This is a classic. And it's flawless.

Without Halcyon 1996 would've been much more boring year in demoscene. This one got deserved 1st place at Demolition '96 (since you're missing all the prod info).

feeling of 'darkness' is captured very realistically in this one. rocks.

Rock solid Halcyon quality!

This one also has the atmosphere that I just find it so har to put into a demo. I still hope to be able to do that someday... Brilliant music by croaker!

Pending demo on the move...

I could finally run it in DosBox. My first time. Secondmal, I closed the lights and tried once again. I liked it, must be the atmosphere..

Hell yeah. Halcyon <3

I'm giving this one a rulez for the light-exploding polygonized sphere effect. :-)

Nice feeling and I especially like the music.

definately one of halcyons best - nice and simple, good style and well refined/synched. Works in DosBox better than it used to on my real dos box! :D

Nice for its time and the atmosphere it creates.

My favourite demo.
rulez added on the 2008-06-26 00:01:01 by k8to k8to
well done
though it makes me remember how stupid the mid-90s scenepoetry was :)
(i couldn't decide if it was parody or not)

Nooo, Chavez, it's not corny. Still gives me the goosebumps, just like it did back in '96.

Scene poetry aside, this is good stuff

One of those demos that is so eye-pleasing in its operation (color-range, fluency, pace) that you would not want it to end.
rulez added on the 2011-08-03 16:27:27 by funkdoobiest funkdoobiest
nice and dark

Thought the poetic text was actually okay in this one, it complimented the graphics pretty well.

Great design and use of camera, really sells the effects. Music is quality.

Cool demo!

Gotta thumb up, awkward 90s scene poetry be damned.

Classic saw first time at Birdie 2008

Now we're talking. I adore the "lightray-ball", the visuals and music there create a very delicate shimmering experience.

quality production from younghood times. good combo of classics fx and bringing meaning behind them.

20 years old.. 1st time I've seen this.. some bugs/artifacts in the rendering but it's a great atmosphere.. even the scene poetry is good
