The style and pace reminds me a bit of 'Access Denied' by Reflex, except here with wordplay. I guess at this gruesome pace you burn through code and data very fast, which might be forgiving for the extreme short length in this case.
Original and unique; demos like this should remain that way and not be copied all over the place or they lose their charm.

Such an ear orgasmic funky tune. One of master Heins best. Unfortunately much too short. Those chords get under my skin. And the fantastic speech. Top notch.

Nominated for 2 scene.org awards:

- best demo on an oldschool platform (http://awards.scene.org/nominees.php?cat=12)
- most original concept (http://awards.scene.org/nominees.php?cat=7)

I'm especially proud of the second one, as it's really cross-platform (the old school is c64 mostly).

I added a download link for a version that _should_ be C128DCR compatible (or 1571-compatible in general..). Then again, it's not very thoroughly tested.. ;)

Im sorry, but i don´t really understand why this demo has got so much attention. I am a big fan of Focus´ demos in genereal, but how well designed this might be, and how wise the advices might be - it´s still just a heap of text. Thumbs up for a good soundtrack!

Burglar, yeah. That is what I am saying. ;D

You vote once, then you change your vote in a while. Maybe for the better or the worse. No more static and copied votes like in the good old days. :P

changed my vote twice now, this one grows on you, not in the least because of tempo, perfect choreography, lyrics and the fab soundtrack.

Really nice demo mirroring the today's society. I think it is good as it is, simply and short, but impressive. Could be maybe a bit longer, furthermore I miss some GFX. But The Music (which is good both on 6581 and 8580) and the designish paragons really makes me weee, err, I mean, just weee?! :D

This is extremely awesome imo. Very cool design and I think it's the best demo from BFP for sure. 3 Thumbs up!

Did anyone else notice that if you choose the remix, you're focus seriously moves from eyes to ears?

This is like one of those songs that stick to you the first time you hear it.
When you learn the lyrics, it becomes even more beautiful!
This is design at its best! 8D

this is my personal favorite in bfp demo compo. design is great and the coding is way harder than catches the eye. This is the first demo I see that the design was used so forwardly and fastly that it started to present a technical challenge of an important magnitude. very fresh very very inspiring.

A demo that uses minimalistic gfx in a stylish and coherent way.
Unfortunately, the thematics of the production are not as strong and focused as the visuals.
But Sander's lead at the design dept. is very apparent, resonating strongly with his gfx compo entry, "Obstacles", from the very same party.

feels fresh and very different from what is usually seen on c64. too bad that most of the really slick gfx looked bad on the bigscreen

Don't forget, Hein... TDJ did the timing... although it might not look like he did a lot looking at the credits now ;P
User Comment

For the record, Sander did the design/gfx. WVL/TDJ/Mirage did the code. It's just that they locked us out, so we can't complete the credits. Sigh. :)

Oh yeah.. afer I got completely eaten and brainwashed by the job I do (for last 6 years) this kind of use of basic "signs" (words) is quite refreshing to watch. And now let's get back to the brave new world social networks, tagging, digging, ajaxing and web 2.0.... ;-)
