This is so top notch demo.
BD created the masterpiece, again.
Please, never stop amaze us!

I like how this demo is more about style than coding. While the style seems to have stemmed from heavy char-mode and color restrictions for the artists to actually enable this "cheap" layering.

and everything Mermaid said :)

Absolutely lovely production with extraordinary graphics and the ultimate low-fidelity last-minute music as a contrast. What a blow. Wonderful aurora borealis motives, I enjoyed these very much. Thank you.

Lovely multicolour char mode pictures in the middle, it's not easy to make char mode pics look good and even harder with the added restrictions forced on you to make foreground/background priority work with the sprites.

The bitmap pics and music are great, sweet snow effect + scrollers + northern lights, neat dir art as well.

I enjoyed the atmosphere throughout the demo - a well deserved win!

It’s heartwarming to see that people enjoy this rather rushed production. Two weeks before the party it was a bunch of proof-of-concept previews and not much more. I guess we work at our best when we’re hours away from a deadline.. :)

For me personally it was satisfying to finally get the music finished and released at last. I’ve been playing the theme on my piano for more than a year, but it wasn’t until I tried doing it in a 3/4 time signature that it started sounding right on c64.

Thanks again for positive feedback - and see you in the next Booze demo!

@raistilin I think it’s fair to mention HCL’s new (almost) FLI-bugg free 80x50 mode with compact memory layout.

Amazing new scroller tech from JackAsser, too.

Moody and brilliant! Loved every second of it! Maybe the only thing I think didn't fit so well was the last yellow scroller as it wasn't as colorful as the rest, but the end picture gave a fantastic total impression! <3

One of the most beautiful demos ever! So impressed by you and (damn!) you got ahead of us with that aurora effect (working on the same idea!) Thank you guys for this piece of art where everything blends perfectly – code, design, music. Much love! <3

Elaborated comment (don't want to be called "one word comment guy" anymore):
Excellent graphical screens of those naturalistic pieces. Just as with Mermaid and Redcrabs work it's simply amazing and so nicely held; "Graphical demo" comeback! Everywhere else in Europe there is no snow? So a lash of the missed winter feeling is more than welcome!

Everything is so nice until one gets that hires scroll, and look at the content. It's a hires scroll, colored and it's WTF. Hahaha. Just have to love it!

very nice !! dano, simple: in multicolor mode if you turn the sprites 'behind' the background 00 and 01 pixels will be still behind sprites and only 10 and 11 will be shown infront of them :)
