Aim pushbot carefully.

This is the final version of our contribution to the Revision 2016 8K intro compo, where it placed 4th. You need a fairly powerful videocard to run it (2 GB ram, 80 GB/sec bandwidth, about as fast as a AMD 7850).

4K Compo Stocking Filler

4K Compo Stocking Filler

Here’s a little party-coded compofiller 4K for the Under Construction 2015 demoparty. I was aiming for a more realistic Christmas tree, but the result has tons of raymarch glitches and runs very slow… Still, the audience appreciated it for what it was. Huge thanks to Skyrunner/Brain Control for helping out with the music in a hurry.

8K Reality (final)


This is our contribution to the Revision 2015 8K intro competition, where it placed 2nd.
Its a remake of Second Reality, the famous demo by Future Crew, in 8192 bytes . (No, 8K has nothing to do with the resolution)

You can download the final version with more transitions but no voices, including low-res version and 12K versions with higher-quality soundtrack: 8K Reality by Fulcrum (final)

Regression 8K

Regression by Fulcrum 2014-04-20 05-01-04-11
This is our contribution to the Revision 2014 8K democompo. It’s a single-effect intro with reverse fluid dynamics. It needs a very powerful videocard to run at 60 FPS, which is necessary to stay in sync with the music, as frames can’t be skipped.

And The Soundcard Isn’t Great Either

This is a party-coded executable gfx for the Demodays 2013 surprise compo. The topic was “This app can’t open. The screen resolution is too low for ‘Music’ to run.” Not having a Windows 8 tablet, I started wondering just how low-res your computing device had to be to justify such an error… I aimed for a 1K, but stopped 96 byte short, not wanting to cut features nor converting everything to assembler. Here’s the executable: AndTheSoundcardIsntGreatEither_by_Fulcrum


This is our 1K entry for Assembly 2013. It placed 5th out of 13 entries. I had a lot of fun making this.
WARNING: for the party version, you need a very fast graphics card and vsync enabled to see (and hear) this intro correctly. It should run about 68 seconds.
