long demo with scary music and german poems
added on the 2001-06-08 00:25:29 by fractalgp fractalgp
"german poems"? Those were only a few words, actually... Anyway, one of the most innovative demos of the year 1996 and maybe ever, cool concept art and just by the way the only software engine fast enough for 640x480 (maybe except the quake1 engine :) ... and this since 1996.

i was REALLY scared when i saw that demo running almost smooth on my p133 in 640x480 :)

The only engine fast enough for 640x480? You don't remember the Realtech demos of 1995? :)

Anyway, what everyone else said. Scary, odd, and a bit ahead of its time. All I remember are words and objects, maybe there was more. :)

The Realtech engine wasn't as fast and was only an object viewer, not a full-fledged engine :) But ok, you got me here, the truth is somewhere in the middle .
added on the 2001-07-26 19:47:16 by kb_ kb_
Realtech's stuff (Countdown, DX Project) was a lot faster on my 486-75 than IKES, which crawled. I forgot how it ran (or if it ran at all!) on my 6x86-150.

But, I think IKES had textured objects while Countdown did not. And stuff like the heart looked more complex. So I'll give you and Purge some credit. :)

The poetry is pointless, but the engine was fucking hardcore in 1996. At least, it scared me big time.

speaking of german poetry: the guy who wrote INTERPRE.TAT has just a totally great sense of humour. this demo is still above today's average of today's demos concerning athmosphere and overall appeareance (music, design, attitude). great demo.

for you non-german speaker: it's a great bret easton ellis-style text involving women, drugs, sex and violence. and coding ;)

'Fortschritt muss schockieren um wirksam zu sein!' Great!

Clearly the best Purge demo, nice design. Unluckily it seems that it don't likes MSDOS 7.x, it always crashes on half the way (was better with MSDOS 6.2)

det är nog tråkigt jävligt pretto i alla fall...

crest: it works in MSDOS7.x for me atleast...

Anyone getting this to run under DosBox? I hardly get jerky music snippets.

see above comments.

Crashes halfway and does not even bother to create sound under Win9x. Still fucking great anyway!

Such a darkness and visuals and the strange poems which are either english or german and german makes it more beloved for me and atmospheric even though some lyrics I don't get them (addicted to the penis? hahaha), still very unique for it's time!

awesome and strange back then

I have a soft spot for both scene poetry and fonts. This demo hits with both. The engine, mood, and some attempts at theme integration were pretty good too, especially for the day.

Thumbs up.

It was the first time I saw a 640*480 demo on my P133.
The visual was impressive for its time. I think it still works nowadays.
The EBMish music is fine too...

Well this started out really nicely, good music and nice morphing plane deformantions but... meh, the 3d, the monotonousness and even the track wasn't able to keep its original excitement up.

I can motherfucking see you, indeed. ;)

Quite eerie, conceptual and technically sophisticated for its time. A minor 1990s classic. :)
