Thank you all for your comments and kind words.

Burglar: Thank you. Wink wink ;)

Smasher: You're not a retard at all, my friend.

Mibri: Thank you for the compliment. Let's just say we haven't stopped, but I'm not promising more right now.

Jammer: It's a 2004 tune with some additions and modernization. I'm very fond of this tune, too, even after listening to it hundreds if not thousands of times. Hopefully _V_ will remain active.

HCL: Thank you, appreciate your comments, especially as we love your work. Now that you say it it seems a bit rushed to me as well the demo. This is because it was mostly driven by the music, which already had a given length that was just expanded at the beginning. And then LHS kept on giving me more parts ;-)

Miami Bass: The font has been released separately here: !dead Hires Charset. Thank you. It must be so great because two designers worked on it ;-)

Magic:We're planning on being more "not dead" going forward still, yes.

Remdy: Hopefully the BCC compo will take place :)

psych858o: Thank you, we're very glad that _V_ came out of his cave for us, too :)

Short but nice demo!! You could have showed those effects a bit longer, or is it just me?.. Thank you guys!

Fantastic atmosphere throughout!

Padua has indeed been relatively active this year, but I am greedy, so I was very happy to receive this big old nugget of demo goodness today.

@anonym. I know I'm a retard, I saw the live show and I thought the exclamation mark belonged to the logo with no particular meaning :)
I don't know when the ! symbol to negate was introduced... if I'm not wrong it does not belong to the C64 era. I expected some EOR from you instead. "we are EOR DEAD". lol :)

MacGyver: Patience is a virtue.
