NTSC user here so many demos (unfortunately) were never a part of my past. I certainly love watching them these days.

I really enjoyed the cloud effect in this one.

To me, still the best demo ever on the c64. Simply amazing.
User Comment
Submitted by Nightlord on 5 February 2021
I just realized that I haven't commented on this all these years even though I watched it many times.

To me Uncensored and EoD sit together head and shoulders above anything else. EoD, in context, at the time it came out probably is one of the two most impactful demos in the C64 history (the other being Dutch Breeze imho). But in isolation, I think Uncensored is the slightly better demo.

My favorite parts are HCL's roto-Hexagon color-cycler (as well as the inside cube version), the flying bricks (which I also think is a cc) and the crazy smooth roto-rasters. That grid part by Jackasser is also a cool idea.

The gfx and the soundtrack is polished as usual, but in this demo I sense that Dane, Archmage and Valsary intentionally stay out of the spotlight a bit, to put the focus of the viewer completely on the effects for full impact. And I think it clearly works. This might be the most technically punch-you-in-the-face demo in the last decade.

Like Raistlin says, this is a 12/10.

This demo... wow. Amazing. Honestly, I really hope you guys come teach us all what C64 can really do at X21 - after 2020, we really deserve a new BIG demo from Booze.

Rotating raster bars... what the hell? I tried looking at the disassembly and was more confused than ever. HCL, you have to explain that one to me sometime! Amazing.

The whole demo is fantastic. Code, graphics, music.. wow.

I’m torn about this one and Edge of Disgrace.. I think EOD just beats this for me.

@Dane: Mentioning Pussy Riot in a row with the arch catholic reactionist "Guy Fawkes" and the rapist and wanna be hacker Edward Snowden shows that you have no clue what you are talking about. But... what do I expect! It's the C64 scene. Never mind.

Was there ever a demo as flawless as this?
The raster effect alone wins all compos of the last decade for me... well, what TWW said...
so you have stunning effects. But that's not all. You have coherent design. But that's not all. Each and every part of the demo is full of wit and creativity, in all senses: there is humour, nice play on words mixed with a rather serious plot in the back, every single part has something stunning and interesting to it. It has coherent design and a truely great story. And the credits part makes me go wild every time I think of it. It is so great from so many different angles... you really blew me away with this, Booze!

You gotta hand it to the guys of BD; they could just sit on their lazy asses since EoD is still holding the top spot since so long. Instead they keep trying to do what seems impossible and often succeed. Again HCL waves his magic coding wand and drops jaws to the floor nicely orchestrated on Dane's music. What a show!

READY RUN READY... WTF?!? You had me there for a moment guys. ;)
Uncensored clearly is a reference to CD and the guys at Booze go into Censor territory with the typical color square scroller Censor style effects trying to beat them at their own game no doubt. Funny. :)

Once again a great demo from Booze Design! I jumped out of my own head when I saw the rastershow. Lots of impressive effects and hardcore code :) Music is top notch and with Mirage onboard, I bet your next demo will have it all 110%. EOD is still the best, maybe EOD2 will prevail ?.

Still can't decide wether this one or Comaland was the best demo on X for me, but i'm more than sure that the rotating rasters was the best effect!

I'd go even further and say it's the best effect on c64 demo scene history so far. Wonder if there will ever be any chance on topping that effectwise...

As a big fan of gfx modes I really fell in love with the XFLI-pictures in this demo; I have to admit that I wasn't aware that these pics were XFLIs during the compo, but after checking out the demo again on real hw it was more than obvious!

Thank you for this masterpiece!

Part from some of the history’s most exquisite parts,
some of the wonderful graphics behold a peculiar rawness of its former selves onto the real screen,
leaving traces of its former self.
A great show to be remember nonetheless, with a strong combination of will and ambition in brilliance of execution.

Submitted by ccr on 1 November 2014
Uhh .. admittably I am at loss for words, again, which is not unexpected when it comes to 'X' releases, but .. I think this one took the cake for me, and ate it.

Uncensored was the last of the top 5 X2014 demo releases I watched, for whatever reason, and while I was impressed by the Comaland, quite liked RGB, and enjoyed Shape's Disco Apocalypse quite much, I wasn't really getting the "whoa" effect that I had with X2012 demos .. or so I thought, until I arrived at this piece of work :D

It is very difficult to summarily state what exactly makes this the "coup de cour" demo of X2014 (and probably c64 demo releases of 2014 in total), but it is the combination of style, execution and sheer technical insanity.

What made "Uncensored" different, and "better" for me than "Comaland", was the flow - Dane's one-piece trackmo soundtrack instead of the rather "choppy" tune-per-part style of "Comaland" is something that wins me over. Say what you say about Dane repeating himself, but his tune does its job well here.

Technically speaking Comaland may have something over Uncensored, but both are on the level of code-trickery that makes me just wonder what the fuck I am seeing.

I'm not much of a coder myself, but usually I can at least throw some educated guesses about how some effect might've been done - but here .. nope. I've got nothing. :D

Kudos to Booze Design guys for making my year. :D

rotating rasterbars wtf! seriously a dream come true!

many many many jawdropping moments, first for the plasmaface, that perspective tunnel effect (great direction!), the colorcycling on highest level seen so far (in your face, bob;), banner greets, fractalzoomer and then finishing it off with one of the 2 best effects of the whole compo, a dream come true: rotating rasters, again with excellent direction on top of it! never a dull moment :)

graphics were superb, coherent and fitting, perfect! liked the style too.

the soundtrack was very good, but a bit too much dane dane to my liking, but then again, I changed my mind about certain soundtracks before so may still happen :)

probably my personal favourite of the compo, but only by 4 stars out of 756. heartbreaking to see you guys miss the cup by such a tiny fraction.

thank you for gracing us once again with your excellence, all of you!

Lots of "Colorcycling" in this demo, but I love it :) The 4th color in the rotating "copperbars" part kinda puzzled me for a while. Lots of nice sprite controlling things going on there. And, as I said earlier, the x-moving spritelayover on top of the chars for the interferance part looks absolutely lovely in full screen 50fps (been trying to do that effect myself). The other part that stands out is the greeting part with the protestors. I really love that one! As for the theme, I've seen the movie "We are the legion", and I don't really like everything about the anonymous - as it was from the start. So, as a theme, It's not really my thing. Neither is Edward Snowden. But, hey; the demo is fucking nice to watch and even if there is no great transitions like in EoD where the sideborder was more or less owned in every part of the demo, this is a really amazing release! Was also great see the efforts you guys put in next room to finish it :) Cheers!

oookay... what can i say. this is an awesome demo! i wouldnt mind a 2nd place
behind it (but dont wanna complain about having our demo on the 1st spot ofcoz, hehe).
i agree a bit with axis that it is a very good booze design production, but not the
EOD killer.
on the other hand i also don't think that comaland is a coma light 13 killer :-)
both demos deserve to be high in the ranks though.
i am looking forward to the next battle with you guys... probably at x'16? lets keep
the fire burning.

Well done guys. Not the edge of disgrace killer I hoped for, but for sure one of the best demos around.

This years X felt like having too winners. If I get the numbers right from the results, its just 4 stars difference between you and us from about 200 voters. Which is nothing.

That rotating rasters knocked my socks of. Eventhough I was 50% on the way doing same.

Looking very hard to find a weak, all I could find was Dane's audio track on this release - it sounds just a bit too much recycled to previous BD releases, even though it's probably partially deliberate.

Yes it's still awesome, and yes I am still a big Dane and BD fan.. so 10/10 overall rounded up.

Great music and clean design, well put together as always from Booze.
But what stands out for me is the code!
Such amazing effects, the whole-color-RAM-trend is still going strong here, both the hexagonal rotator and the inside cube shows a fresh twist to the concept.
Then the chaos-zoomer, wow, good looking and impressive.
And of course the raster rotator, love the build up and then *bam*.
I'm sure I forgot something, but all in all, a perfect 10/10 from me.

Would love to see a note-file with all the technical details! :)

Ah! I absolutely love that the demo has a message, giving it in my opinion an extra layer of depth. This demo has such great tempo, and the moment the theme of Dane's music kicks in (and the floorpatterns are blinking), I almost get goosebumps! Jaw dropping effects presented in a 'oh, this is not a big deal for us', is just fantastic. Everything is so in your face, and experiencing this at the party was just a blast! Thank you!

That's the problem with infusing a demo with a message, even if it is one built on the ambiguity of words. (uncensored, demonstration) Some will like it, some won't.

I'm still proud of it as I feel this time we not only delivered some out-of-this-world effects but also food for thought.

But don't worry, next time you'll get something else. :)

Most of the effects look very fresh. Rarely you get to see this many good looking screens in one demo. Great job from the coders! About the design: no fancy transitions are needed if the screens fit together without them. Transitions are mostly used to hide the mish mash quality of demos in general. About the theme: well, it's just absurd to hear Dane's uplifting pop song together with pictures of Pussy Riot degenerates. I think demos and politics mix better with much broader brush. Trying to express a universal theme by using a bunch specific controversial poster boys and girls of current Facebook Like politics inevitably moves your demo into "preaching to your own choir" category and makes your message almost inverted to those who sing a somewhat different tune. This kind of copy and paste politics is shallow at best.

The message in this demo is definitely important, only cynics and sufferers of apathy could disagree (and it doesn't take much to be one)... BUT I do feel how it was executed and displayed could have been a bit more... revolutionary.

That said, it had a lot of stuff that I simply did not think was possible before. EoD is still #1 for me, but this HAS to be a 10/10 either way.

Code wise i must just bow down and say - yeahh, hell yeah... this is the shit. I would so much have had Jailbird doing the graphics in your demo because he is really one of the absolutely best gfx artists on our platform of friendship and life companion feelings rooted inside our hearts. Thanx for a super demo, I admit voted your demo lower than I should at the party because there and then i really liked some other demos better, on that screen in someren i liked censor, shape, pex and hoaxers better, but now after the party looking at this demo again i think this was the best demo... even i do not like the graphic style at all personally, i was so dissapointed there were no Jailbird magic in this, that is just the truth, i felt the gfx was so lame after waiting for your killer demo for so long! Music is Dane and as i said in the past it is insane, and Dane i ment that in a good way. Booze has your sound like a band has its indent in their sound, that is you - booze design. HCL - you are a fantastic human being and you make Booze so lovable. I really like the way you are just you and all nice and all and not being king nose high, you are just a super nice person.... and absolutely one of the best coders ever on the commodore64 scene - thanx for your talent, your code and your humanly humble smile that make us love booze - no matter what!

And for those of you critical of the theme...which was mostly my responsibility this time as I delivered most of the gfx...I think it turned out great compared to our work-in-progress title, which was "Color Cycling Shit".

Finally, congrats to the party organizers for something extraordinary. And to the winners at X...maybe next time you'll let us face you one group at a time instead of ganging up line that? :)

It’s odd reading the comments criticising the design, as one of the things I kept thinking whilst watching it (before reading any comments!) was how unified and consistent the design was. It pulls off that contemporary “flat” look quite well, and (for a demo with so many parts) the effects, music and graphics combine well to make it feel like one large production. I agree with some others that the “theme” isn’t really my thing..and “keep calm and carry on” is way over-used, but overall I enjoyed it a lot! (obviously it’s always good to see new things from you guys!)

my personal #1, a lot of cry outs on design, but design doesnt always mean that stuff the demo with gfx and transitions. clean and nice I really like how it is.

top stuff absolutely brilliantly designed, designwise even slightly better than winner which was minimally better effectwise

Worthy winner among a lot of great demos! Slower pace than in many Booze demos, which fit this particular production really well.

I waited for some stuff between numerous raster-bars and... it ended instead. Much booze, little design.

Ok, so I was waiting on those transitions.. but WTF this is really a nice demo! Hope this starts a new era of Booze Design dominance in the scene! It felt a bit like Hardwird (1991 amiga 500 demo) with blackscreen and white texts.. ;) Keep it up these amazing projects!

I know if you try to criticise a demo you can always find many things to criticise. But since i remember the moments shouting "how the [hell|fuck] is this possible?!" at X, i'll just give my 10/10 and step out. :) Congratulations guys.

Amazing stuff. The zoomscroller and the plasma-faces part are just awesome.

The rotating rasterbars part continued in my dreams last night. Guess I was not the only one :-)

Top code! Don't know how scripted the demo production process has been, but I feel that Dane, while doing quality work, should try something new musically. Brilliant rotating rastabars!

I'd like start with complaints about overall design and transitions. You've gone a bit Offence style but here I missed all those details and fluent transitions that made EoD and some earlier Booze prods really outstanding and classy. In most cases you've gone back to uninspired effect/black background combination. Also artwise (except few brilliant hires goodies) it was somewhat below what I expect from Booze magicians. And my ranting ends here because... effects were totally awesome! You guys are insane! Teh madness! :D All the effects were all incredibly fresh, fullscreen and really fast. When rasterbar part came in, I started to think 'I bet everything that it's going to rotate' and I wasn't mistaken. Despite a few of my complaints, it's unquestionable 10. I really regret not having seen it on party screen. Fantastic work.

I'm speechless and agree that current CSDb voting system does not let us give an appropriate appreciation to this demo.

Amazing work, guys! Glad I couldn't participated in this one, I'd just ruin it with my shit :D

IMO, it has a much unified, sleeker flow and overall design than the Censor+Oxy demo, which seemed a bit segmented audio-visually to me.

And yep, have to agree with Rough, I'm not too fond about the main theme either.

Diagonal is the new standard for rasterbars!! I was waiting for Booze comeback!

I agree with Rough. The melancholy music fits the topic but isn't my scene. Some fresh arrangements/instruments would make this demo much more consummately.

jesus christ, this demo makes multi resolution feel like lego bricks :)

- fractal zoomer ! wohaw! had it on my list since a year, even sketched up my inner loop which looks the same as yours, good thing I didnt do it, as it would be now useless :)

- awesome new take on palette rotators ! ;)

- spinning rastahs! fuck me! :)

+++silky smooth presentation with coherent design

I guess CSDB voting system must allow up to 11-12 now so that the newer demos can take their place :)
