I started the demo and after few minutes I was 15 again and drooling on the graphics. I read every single story and enjoyed the journey from the start to the end. I usually don't read all the scrolls but not in this case. Great collection of stories. Every detail is in the right place. Great pictures and absolutely awesome remixes. Times of Lore was my favorite picture and Boulderdash zax was the biges surprise. I hated that song in the game but the remix made it super cool. It made me want to play it. Pirates! mix with Pirates of the caribian another super great song... actually all of them. Thank you for the great show guys! I hope to see more from you soon! 10/10

95% of the reason I came to BCC was to see this being released. I first learned about the project at Forever 2016 when ThunderBlade told me about it and showed me a WIP of one or two pictures, and since the summer of 2016, c0zmo occasionally shared various versions of the tunes with me, asking for feedback. Actually, the last time both guys asked for my feedback to contemporary versions of the pics and tunes was like 3-4 weeks before release. So, coming to the party, knowing most of the key content, I thought, "Will it work for me?" Well, I knew the pics and the tunes, but I didn't know the story arch, the scrollers, how it would all click together. This little piece of beauty is much more than the sum of its parts. ThunderBlade came to me after the compos and asked: "So, was it worth coming all the way to Berlin?" Yes. Totally.

What a good stuff! I like the To Be On Top remix. First, I didn't like it, but I gave a second chance to it and it's really good. Other tunes as well. Some pics are awesome, I love Arkanoid pic. Turning the text off is a useful feature.

Great work at all. Very fine pictures and awesome musics! My favourite pic is Katakis. Arkanoid is a very good tune!

Wow, all of your feedback is so great and I am overwhelmed by the positive reactions. Being a total graphics rookie, I vastly underestimated what it takes to work on NUFLI. I started in late 2015 and spent countless evenings and weekends to get the pics right. It seems it was worth it. :)

And C0zmo, previously only having a released a small amount of SIDs, also stretched immensely to get this amount of tunes done in very high quality.

What's your favourite pic and music?

Congrats on your double victory, team Bliss! :-) This collection is a labour of love in every aspect: The awesome soundtrack which included some great surprises (Boulderdash) and some true goosebumps moments (Splash Wave) the imagery and the archon/wow story arc around the whole thing. Love it, 10/10!

I love the presentation, scrolltexts kept me hooked for quite a while and the music is gorgeous! I especially dig the drums in Arkanoid, getting pretty close to Galways noise digis. Very well done, guys!

I love this release! I assume it took a painstaking effort to get all the images to look this awesome. And the music, yeah, gotta love that too. They really enhance the whole experience. An extra plus for the Archon animations and story. Well done ThunderBlade and C0zmo!

Great production! This is so well crafted in many aspects. Nice to watch, nice to listen, funny to read and packed into a cute presentation. And yeah, what Matt said: it contains lot of love and devotion. And furthermore, for me this is also a little sweet reminiscence to Metal Force #2, though no Clyde nor Turrican popped up :-) Well done ThunderBlade, well done c0zmo.

Looks like lots of love and dedication went into this original production! It does read like an encyclopedia, true.
Anyway, the ending is great too by the way!

Wow, love it. The music is awesome. It even has a slightly encyclopedic character.

I'm a sucker for intros / storytelling in demos (you can tell by The True Story of Batman) and this one has one of the best made, most entertainung story lines I have ever seen.

The presentation is slick. The idea is fresh. The pictures are great and the music is truly awesome. I am usually not a fan of remixes but what c0zmo has done here is just... beyond anything I could have imagined.

What a cool idea for a release. Well done gfx and music!

I have a problem though with second disc. It stops loading pictures after The Pirates. The border starts blinking red. Tested on Vice (Mac OS)

what they say

and I must highlight how much work and love went into this one - with an overall brilliant result! Those are the releases which make me want to believe there's no need to worry about scene's status...

Really great! It surely takes a moment to let sink in what actually was done here. Some few of the pictures probably were artistically not the most thankful choices, but the remixes of the soundtracks alone are outstanding. All in all it has a very smooth feeling, and the release truly marks the age of remastering for the C64. Very well done! (... and those remixes! <3 ) [edit: don't miss the additional info on the disk]
