this ground-breaking demo stopped my heart in 1987.
FCS/ECC party in bonn 1987 was really cool.
I was a good amiga and C64 coder but I never expected an acccelerated progress like this.
I never saw a so innovative demo smashing the amiga sceen. unknown territory!
I was obsessed with that demo for years.
you won twice:
1. megademo
2. beating up nazi-WOM pleased the crowd :)

thanks to Don, Alien, LV, Cjw, Cpu for friendship, C64 and Amiga help all the years.

It is an amazing feeling, we are part of amiga history.

i found famous 'Star Frontiers' from the same time in here:

coding and especially swapping took years of my life but the scene influence shaped my life a lot.
2005: I'm married, father of a daughter and I'm working for a company as an IT planning expert.

now it's 23 years since we met first, remember : "Software for the benefit of mankind", "glory and fame" :)

Jatzek, you know the crimename.

Now this is what demos are all about! Great copper bar-effects, well-drawn animations, atmosphere (soul/energy), nice sampled music - and even almost a GAME included! All I can say is - respect!

This is no history. This is no legend.
This is pure myth.

/me bows down to Alien! ;)

By the way, Alien, we need to make that game PLAYABLE (:
My big respect to the ALIEN, not only in former times!
rulez added on the 2005-10-21 10:07:32 by n4cer n4cer
Obviously made with a lot of love :) Just a shame Alien had no time to insert the aliens in the scroller shoot em up.. :P

The kangaroo animation is sweet!
rulez added on the 2005-10-23 13:02:26 by darkus darkus
way to go!!! great pixel animations, interactive parts, games etc. it's more than a demo and done in 1987... what can I say. thumb up!!! :)

Someone told me that this is kind of lame. Whatever they say. It's not my opinion. After all this thing was created in a better situation - when hair went longer, people were playing Test Drive and home computers were home computers. While on the other hand IBM tried to establish a thing called PC with graphic features behind the custom chips of a certain hardware called Amiga. People like Antitrax - a lot younger and wilder than today ;) - did some pioneer work at that time. In the interest of a-soon- to-become "very active Amiga scene". Thanks folks.. But thank god, the hair went shorter....

Got some problems with UAE to run it. But after the problem solved, i can tell one thing : THAT DEMO ROX! GOOD WORK ANTITRAX!

Yes - 1987 is very impressive.. i saw even this nice intro and i love it =)

Pioneers beside us, and this demo has all, what a modern demo of nowaday own´s - Sound, Grafik, Text and a build in Game..

Well Antitrax does a very good job back in 1987... and don´t forget, this are more than 18 years !
It's hot!

First Megademo and an early release that also moved away from sampled loops to Soundtracker!
rulez added on the 2022-02-23 19:49:10 by Photon Photon
Being trackloaded part is important because it posed a challenge requiring a loader instead of just a startup-sequence or a menu which is easy to do.

Megademos would never be the same, and it inspired other track-loaded prods such as musicdisks and trackmos. The loader would go from being system-friendly to turning off the OS completely and overwriting it, freeing up maximum memory, which left room for the loader to entertain while loading.
