Current trends in C64 demos

I find it interesting to see how trends (both when it comes to design and effects) develop on different platforms.
Of course there are plenty of people breaking the mainstream all the time, but still I find that there are elements that change in popularity over time.
For example, we had the logo+scroller+effect style of the "oldschool" era, the PC-style bigpixel effects of the mid/late 90ies etc. etc.

The last few years the attribute-moving effects have been coming out in force, but now after watching all the great demos from C64, it seems like a couple of new things are trending:

- Layered effects
- Moving "bobs" in amounts that frankly astounds me (no, not talking about the good old unlimited bobs technique). Both the Censor demo and the Arsenic demo had some cool stuff going in this department.

2 years after we quit the c64 scene there came this gang of insane people to a swedish party, we went there because it was to be the last party for c64 ever - we thought. This was 1994!

They released this beast of a demo: World of Code 3

I want more of that... with that music and everything, what a cool demo and feeling... I do not want all groups making the same things and in the same way, I want different stuff.

Ofcourse, but you lack Microtop code. One of my heroes back in the days.
