This demo has more effects and enjoyment than Hoaxers' reu demos imho. The letters forming like the Alien movie is really cool plus the great spacey bg gfx. Morphing objects part looks great.
The aging girl, then falling below the earth symbolizing death and the guillotine pic are all unsettling, so job well done there on the horror aspect.
Last part is epic; shadowed bobs and facehugger and the gorgeous skeleton pic.
More quality like this please, Hoaxers. I wasn't particularly impressed with the reu demos (except for Joe's art and the SIDs) but this demo blows my socks off.

Underrated demo. Sad to see that this kind of dark horror style concepts always fail on parties. But me likes!

Enjoyed the show here so much! The whole demo feels like watching a trailer for a new upcoming Alien movie! Cool effects, awesome music and kick ass gfx! Best part for me in this one is the alien egg with bob shadows. very nice idea and a pleasure to watch. :)

Three C64 demos from up north little Norway at X-2014 ? That can't be for real.
When I saw that intro scrolling by I thought, "damn, I wish we had something like that in our intro."

We knew Hoaxers was back, but now they are really upping their game. Improving in all areas and with the joining of Joe, you have gold in your hands. Cant wait to see what the future will bring!

Very nice soundtrack too!

Thanks for your kind comments :)

@iAN CooG : thats correct, Response made 1-4 and the last one was made by Codex.
@Rez : This is a brand new SID made by Codex for this demo. He made it on his synths back in the 90´s, but not on the c64. Last time he made SID´s was back in 1989 before he joined Razor 1911 and stopped his c64 activity.

PS: when that globe in the intro came scrolling I almost shit my pants - it just looked so fantastic that globe and the start was mind blasting.

At the party I liked this demo almost the most of all the great demos, it is a fantastic demo. And I must add that the rotating bob sprites with shadow on the egg is brilliant and looked like hollywood effect on the big screen.

I just wanna complement the great people I worked together with on this project! Mainly 4 people busted their asses to make this production within the time we had, and what a fun ride it was! Cheers, until next time!
