The first (well-known :) Dubius demo, taking several design cues from Dope. Great music from Nitro as always, but the demo itself is full of bugs (observe the walls in the Descent/intro part). You probably won't be able to run it on anything faster than a P166 without it crashing.

One of the best demos ever! Very nicely built design and soundtrack. Some very nice technical achievements too, although the VE is pretty buggy.

Looks not perfect, but it already shows the potential of this group. Great, energetic soundtrack!

phoenix, yes, crashes on landscape part on my P210\i430TX\S3 ViRGE\SB 32, but on Cirrus Logic ISA all OK :) Why?
And yes, the demo rocks, although it have LOTS of bugs.

Crashes also on DOSBox. I remember this being a nice demo though...

Got it running in DOSBox. 25-30k cycles seems to work. Youtube capture here.

The bouncing cube bit is really good for '95. Great effort put into making the physics look right, and nice rendering w/ realtime shadows from multiple light sources.

The rest of the demo doesn't stand out too much but is entertaining enough for a thumb.

The physics of the bouncing cube is just a parable, right? And rotations seem just random.

I somehow always liked this one.
