Great and original. Indeed I'm not convinced about the Duvel bottle model.

Finally a VCS prod with good looking 3d dot thingies that fits in 4k :) Beer is always makes for a good demo theme

Took a little moment to pick it apart. At $85-$86 there seems to be a pointer for the current glass/bottle profile. Each profile is a set of radii. Each radius indexes into two other tables at $F500 and $F511 that contain pointers to the dot paths for each radius. Then just some smushing together Y position and frame counter to make up swirly, rotation beer shaped 3d spirals. Plus the usual sprite positioning and color table shenanigans

Fortunately there was biobern to the explain the title to me - never thought I'd miss the point of prod by not beging familiar with foreign beer :.) Great job in cramming the table as Tjoppen said. Excellent usage of the space and hardware limitations, ehrm, "capabiltities".

Thank you guys, I'm glad you liked it. @tjoppen, you have already cracker our FX ; ) Though I must admit that I have been largely inspired by Liquid Candy by Noice .. So that's kind of a wink.. And yes the name of this intro ... Just too nice of a wordplay by @exocet ! Though I admit it's easier to understand for French speakers ; )

Very good VCS prod, especially considering the space.

NOW, I don't drink beer and I don't speak French at all. So what do I miss? Demo related! :)

Just release the source code there: https://github.com/FlorentFlament/stella-a-trois (for those who haven't disassembled the binary yet ; )

As for the wordplay on the title: Stella was the project name of the Atari 2600, 'a trois' in French translates in 'with 3 people', and the neat thing is that there is a Belgian beer called 'Stella Artois' (which really sounds like 'Stella a trois' when both are pronounced the French way) ...

Enjoy !

out of all the music played at Revision, this soundtrack is the one that my brain has decided to earworm me with one week later at 5:30 in the morning, and that's worth a thumb I think

@gasman : Huhuhu, sorry for this unintentional brain damage... As we were into a belgian mood for the demo, this tiny tune was roughly inspired by Spike Jones from Telex that could also stay for hours/days in the brain :)

Clever use of scanlines for font and objects, musical fidelity will be what it will be :) as a 4k perhaps not killer but as 4k on this platform = thumb!
