So here it finally is online...

What a lovely idea to first release this demo by mail-swap in December 2020. It has been a long time since I longed for a sending like this. Open the envelope, read the letter, and pop in the disk.

This is a great trackmo in every aspect, and a technical feast. Just check it our for yourself on your Amiga 500.

Btw. You can still get it on disk from Bifat.

Wow. that coding!
That's c64 optimization level, on Amiga.
Congratulations to all the team, that's one hell of a demo.

Wow! Absolutely jawdropping demo!
Clever use of stencil vectors to get a nice pseudo-mirroring going, and then the massive amounts of super impressive chunky effects, running bigger, smoother and higher res than anything I've seen on the Amiga 500 before!

I kind of feel bad for the creators of this that the situation is as it is - this deserved to be premiered at the bigscreen on a major party accompanied by thunderous applauds.

Wow! What a blockbuster from TEK! Great fx propped up by nice design details and a kicking tune. Uploading OCS sequence and lines/text/numbers annotating the shadebobs were my favourites. Those stencil vectors really look great! Really an effect that should be more widely used when showing off polys with hard edges.

rulez added on the 2021-02-19 13:30:07 by edhellon edhellon
Proper OCS demo style! It's mostly a themed effect show with little to tie them together, but I dig that! I also love how it's more than just 5 minutes of showing off a fullscreen 3d engine with blocky pixels - I can see there's a lot of different kinds of hardware trickery involved in each effect. The graphics are top notch and the soundtrack fits both the mood of the demo and the nice throwback to the 90s :)

The 90s demo style and your idea of mailspreading are going together really well - but also thanks to noname for making it available to people like me who aren't super deep into the Amiga scene and therefore couldn't be arsed to send a letter :) (For the record, I did install an emulator to run it!)

You know what's the best part of the demo? The part when the torus comes from the hallway and is hidden behind the wall. Not because it's the best-looking thing in the demo (which it's not), but because it somehow makes the point clear - this is a an absolutely masterful, flawless production with a lot of attention to detail in every possible way. Easily one of the best A500 demos ever made.

Never say no to an a500 prod. And it's interactive :)

Great reflections. We all know they are fake but we love them anyway. They are 80's like solutions to 80's hardware problems. They work extremely well and perform awesome. Also this is the first time i see a software flicker on amiga. Overall technically great demo. Not to mention graphics. Kudos to ozan for it's visuals too!

Got the disk, but it seemed the point was to spread by disk, so I wanted to wait until released by authors to share/vote/nominate online.

The consummation of a technical journey it seems, the Hologon itself and the cube tunnel and donut spaceship corridor are so well crafted it simply rulez. :)

Finally I can comment on this. What a great demo. And I loved running to the mailbox every day hoping to find a sending. Like in the good old days. This production is massive. Surely the best OCS demo since ages, maybe since 'Rink a Dink redux'. Everything is so well crafted and I'm still a bit puzzled about the motion blur. Thanks to Bifat for making all my OCS effects lying around obsolete. This will save me hundreds of hours of spare time. ;o)

Yet another nail in the coffin of that trend going on for years lately with Amiga productions, of:
* Releasing intros/dentros as a "demo"; Hologon has both the length and content to qualify as a proper demo
* Copying obsolete mediocrity and passing it off as "oldschool nostalgy"; instead of that, Hologon demonstrates today's equivalent of the real breakthrough productions from back-in-the-day

Keep it up!
rulez added on the 2021-02-21 00:03:10 by Hoild Hoild
I lack the know-how to judge the technical achievement (although I have no doubt it is tremendous), but even without this its design, syncing and soundtracks makes it one of my all-time favorite Amiga demos.
rulez added on the 2021-02-21 02:35:55 by pixtur pixtur
Wow.

The logical end result of bifats hard work in the past years. It was always evident he‘s one of the top amiga coders out there. Previous productions had been great on a technical level, but it was clear there was potential for a truely massive release if the artwork/design side could be improved.

Getting Nero involved in this is the greatest thing i could dream of, well done! The demo oozes style and atmosphere and the music fits perfectly.

On the technical side, of course the texture mapping is awesome - the whole demo feels like a 060 AGA production.

However, I think the masterful usage of stencil vector techniques is the real highlight in this demo - it just seems like the perfect compromise of crisp resolution and speed. Paired with these gorgeous textures, pseudo specular shading and tasty colors it just looks fantastic.

This demo is up there with 68k masterpieces like Hardwired and Overdrive 1/2. Every new screen one-ups the previous one with one wtf after another.

In these dark times this brings back faith into the demoscene.

Thank you bifat, nero et. al.

Like what. And how. Bifat was known as a coding powerhouse already, but he outdid himself on this one, especially when you consider this is for an A500... And of course everything around the code, the design, the artwork and direction is also up several levels. I totally love how it re-used old effects, we barely see lately, like a stencil vector, and gives it new flavors by integrating it into the design in different ways (for example to simulate env mapping). Brilliant in every way.

Feeling a bit ashamed of not having been a mail-chad due to IRL ongoings.
But I finally ran it on the old lady and was glued to the CRT.
The graphics are next to flawless.
Exceptionally clever application of stencil vector "env-mapping" and gorgeous motion blur texture mapping. Would I be mistaken to assume that there was quite some HAM6 Black Magic in there as well?
...and I'm a sucker for authentic looking neon flickers :D

If there's one gripe in my book, it would be that it was a bit weak on transitions.

Plus, Nero's awesome work. Definitely one of the demos of the year for me.

On one hand, clearly technically impressive and the graphics art is on point. On the other hand, it's just so... dated (especially the music).

Holy shit what have I just seen. How is this OCS? Amazing.
Still waiting for my disk, got in on that action a bit too late. It's gonna be epic once it arrives.

For me one of the very best Amiga productions in the last decades. Actually I can't believe it's pure OCS in any way, the graphics and music add to this. Thanks to Bifat, Ozan , Nero and Ok3anos for releasing this masterpiece!

This is hands down one of the top three A500 demos to this date. So much code porn!

cool demo. but i only saw that emulator capture which made me think it's probably a lot nicer on real hardware, where you wouldn't see the flicker/dither stuff so obviously

Massive! Gives me slight Hardwired vibes, which can only be a good thing. Probably because of the dark soundtrack and shadebobs. Lots of code porn along with some impressive visuals, definitely one for the pantheon of all-time best OCS demos. The fake-env mapping reflection stencil vectors were especially impressive.

I am so sad that i don't have a working amiga setup at home. I envy all those recieved this demo via snail mail on a disk.
Just imagine how that must have been. Recieving the disk, popping it in your amiga and then be surprised by such a banger.

I really like this demo a lot. Great tech, great effects, beautiful graphics the music just works perfectly with the overall style of the demo. But what I think stand out the most is Nero's direction. Well done Nero.

At this point i would like to demand more demos by Bifat AND Nero!

This is one of the best demos I've ever seen since I started paying attention (33 years ago). Incredible. Interestingly, on my ECS Amiga 2000, I got a report that it was not running optimally, so I disabled my 14MHz '020 accelerator and went back to 68000 -- then it ran optimally. Go figure. System has 4MB FAST, 1MB CHIP with accelerator disabled (w/ accelerator: 4MB 16-bit FAST, 2MB 32-bit FAST, 1MB CHIP). Whatever --- it's amazing.

The design and effects was just great in this prod!!! However the music didn't really agree with me, but fit the demo overall. I had the disk for some time now, and what a great way to spread this very new oldskool release. Thanks guys <3 10/10

Reminds me of Hardwired in many aspects, maybe also because of the instruments. Great OCS release!

Epic cyberpunk-themed demo!
Code, effects, gfx, sound, transitions, it's all amazing. Only minor thing to nitpick might be the simplistic 3d-models throughout the whole demo, out of which the tek logo is the most complex one.
Also thanks for spreading the adf, so that I'm finally able to watch it on my Amiga with gotek drive. (which was the reason why I didn't ask for a disk)
Easily the best A500 demo of 2020 I'd say.

btw. what's the mouse-control supposed to do? (besides restarting the demo)
I moved the mouse on the end screen (with and without lmb pressed), but couldn't see anything happening.

Great job! Superb effects, design, and music.
One of the most impressive A500 demos I've seen, and it mops the floor with quite a few AGA demos too :)

Unbelivable prod. Had to double-check my A500 didn't spontaneously morph into an A1200 while I wasn't looking. The effects are unbelivable, but they're also complemented by beautiful pixel art and excellent music. Instant favorite prod all around.

Also, I learned about this prod when it got released on pouet, but I held off and didn't watch it until I received my copy in the mail. And I'm glad I did. Opening the envelope, popping the disk in the amiga, and watching it on my big CRT TV, elevated the whole experience.

Wanting to run this on my A1000: it loads 5 tracks, and then hangs. Any ideas as to why?
I'm no Amiga expert, but this demo is definitely impressive for A500.

The 1993 techno demo style perfected(?) and to some extent reimagined for the current decade, but sadly only as good the weakest link in the chain: the trappings of the retro style itself. The pace drags and and most of the content—in particular the half a dozen spinning 3D primitives—feels like filler, doesn't compare to the likes of TBL's Eon. Not a fan of the cheap hodgepodge of samples and unexciting stylings of the music either.

I did like the pixel graphics though, as well as the "room scene" near the end though. Still less than the sum of its parts however.

can't get enough of those fake reflections. some pretty cool artwork too. still I found it a bit long and "megademo" ish, with the soundtrack lacking development and variety. technically super impressive from my humble understanding, and easily a party winner and jawdropper on any actual machine.

Very nice demo, Ive watched it a few times on the good old Amiga now. Its nice to see the right-mouse button actually works at the end of the demo, to restart the demo with mouse-movement on (nice little feature btw). I love the overal presentation and the ease with which the effects are presented. Looking forward to the next demo!

Great stuff, I'm not usually a fan of Amiga demos - too many zooming circles and spinning cubes for me usually ;-) - but this one is pretty nice. I still prefer the classics if I'm honest though .. Mental Hangover, Phantasmagoria, etc .. and while I've seen other scenes (C64, Atari etc) really advance since the heydays of the scene, the Amiga scene seems .. slower.

This is one of the best Amiga prods I've seen in a while though for sure. Hopefully it'll kickstart other sceners and result in some real change on Amiga scene.
