i always like the "alpha design" entries... this has not much content but nevertheless it has this c00l "oldsch00l" feeling. it´s a pity that it got the last place...

Enjoyable to watch with some very nice Supernao inspired(?) music by Mice. The only let down is the colour choice.

For not having used libcaca it should have been ranked first.

Are you using some interlace mode or some colors changes detection to create the semi blocks (whatever it is called) or something ?

I've always liked this style of textmode :)

Piggie because I enjoyed it quite less than previous demos of AD (I didn't liked the sound much and there was less to see there).

Much flicker on my XP pro box, even in full screen. It ran better on a friend's box though.

Cute, I like the 3d. But it is a little bit boring. And my personal belief in text demos, they shouldn't just use each space filled in as a pixel but really try exploit charaacters.
Alpha Design pioneered the really "clean" textmode look in both Tribute and Bolognese. This demo continues in that tradition, but doesn't really offer anything new. It feels like I've seen this before.

Tastes much better than real diet cola. Excellently chosen charset!
