Truck Is Jarig 4K

Here’s a crazy idea I have had for a few years: remake the entire Rob Is Jarig/Aardbei demo from 2000 in a 4K. That demo has been submitted at quite a few demoparties (see Pouet ). At some point people started to dance on stage if that demo was shown. Unfortunately the Fins at Assembly’22 didn’t know that custom (or they were scared of the security guards. Yes Assembly has those). Still, they at least recognized my artistic impression of Truck ;-)

Dissecting the Scene Syndrome executable graphics

Another 4K executable graphics (more like 2.3 KB, actually) , which placed 2nd at the Outline 2022 executable graphics compo.

The Red Chair executable graphics

My first 4K executable gfx, for the Outline 2021 party. It placed 2nd in the executable graphics competition. It’s amazing how much space is in a 4K if you don’t have to add a soundtrack and animation…

DC Offset 8K

This was our contribution to the 8K intro competition at Revision 2021, where it placed 2nd. It is the first production using our experimental GPU-synth. I wanted to see if a synth in the same language as the visuals would compress better and ultimately be smaller than the usual softsynths (Clinkster/4Klang). Unfortunately, you can’t really do an apples to apples comparison by implementing half a synth, or even 80% of one. And I’m not that interested in synths, VSTi’s etc etc, so this took a long time. This intro gave the final motivational push to finish it. We ran in the usual last-days bugs, sleepless nights, asking the organizers to extend the deadline etc… so it’s not as polished as we had hoped. Still, we learned a lot, and had fun making this!

It took us 7 years to release a new demo, and one month later we have another ready :) Made in approximately 1 week time to support the MAGFest 2019 demoparty, it took 1st place in the combined intro/demo competition. It’s a bit short, but we’re happy we made it.

Party At Spencer’s

So, after almost 7 years, we made a demo again! Slightly hurried, but we wanted to support the American demoscene at Demosplah 2018, where we placed 2nd in the Modern democompo.

Screen Lit Vertigo 1K

Here’s our entry for the Assembly 2018 1 kilobyte intro competition, it placed 2nd out of 13. It needs a fairly fast videocard to run the 1K compo versions at 60 FPS (GTX 1080 TI for the 1080p version, GTX 1060 for the 720p version), but the safe versions which are a bit bigger than 1K and don’t have the uglier hacks should run pretty much everywhere.

Binary Parasites 4K

Here is our entry for the Revision 2018 4 Kilobyte intro competition. It placed 7th out of 18 entries, a bit lower than I had hoped for, but the level of comperition was once again very high.

If you don’t have a fairly high-level videocard, you can watch a video capture on YouTube.

My First 4K Intro

This is our contribution to the Under Construction 2017 combined 4K/64K compo. It’s a not-so-serious party production, hope you’ll like it!

In The Grim Future 8K

This is our contribution to the Revision 2016 8K intro competition, it placed 6th out of 11. Be warned that it needs a extremely fast video card, and it has an extremely long shader compilation time on Nvidia cards (5 minutes on a slow laptop), although tjhat is only the first time you run it, then it is in the shader cache. On AMD, it’s less extreme but still close to a minute.
