The first Vista demo I had seen was Excursion and I liked it very much..

I must have downloaded their other two intros and liked them too as I remember! Now I don't really remember how this one looked, but I shall check them both again..

Vista rules!

Ah. GREAT! And you know what?
The coder(Tero Karras) was VERY young when they made this. About 15-16 years!
I love Vista.

Ahh... bad scenepoetry and the "drain color scheme":) it was a nice little intro anyway...

Very nice atmosphere in this intro. And it's also nowadays fun to watch!

Good code but those texts are just so cheesy and bad that I cannot give thumbs up :D

Thumb up and super cheesy text & colors rulez - in this case ;)

a used to be classic :D

Just lovely. Some 3d code that actually looks good, or better, classic 3d routines still rule. I don't care about the poetry. And i do like the colour scheme.

I love this. The effects, design, music and even the poetry are so damn nice.

The mood and music of this intro is really great! I have no problems with the colors and text, but that could be my dutch taste

Lovely style, poetry gets a bit bad at parts but still. Totally rulez.

I remember this one! Rulez!

I do agree with the majority here, the text is rather awful. But the intro is cool as hell, and the effects are great

nice one

this is just great as it is, no matter what you say about the text, colors, or anything else

Oh, my thumb was missing!
A classic intro, probably because of the soundtrack. The rest (excluding the sceneboetry) is good too.

Ahh, the infamous drain by vista. This has almost everything wrong, which makes it almost appealing, but not.

It's annoying how I think the 4th render looks like a frog looking at me.
To me it's not technically brilliant, but a great prod of its time.
However, I love the mood. GFX+Poetry+music really touched me!

Rocks. I could run it with dosbox smoothly (was so cool to add 4x cycles with my new pc :P)

Nice, yes.

Technically ok, but too mainstream in design, especially compared to the earlier Vista prods.
Nice one! Works with GusEmu

Poetic stuff never really gets me, but dang that was one nice intro. All the effects looked great.

"VISTA" and "DRAIN" logotype graphics
2 stars, 3D space, textured sky, a 3D, grey textured stone, with shadowing, rotating inbetween the 2 stars
red pulsating star or explosion, light sprites and the stone, morphing

My favourite Vista prod, despite the silly poetry. Effects, music and the general mood hits the spot.

dont quite like the poetry in this one. some decent effects in 64k for that era. like the voxel-landscape

Just rediscovered this after 20+ years in an old backup. Really liked it back then.
