Such a good vibe in that demo, it's always nice to see multiple groups collaborating. I especially like Xiny6581's credit music, ABBA would love it :)

Wow. I’m kinda glad I didn’t see any reviews or anything on this until I saw a post that it was #1. Didn’t read any reviews just watched it. I knew it would be good but just... wow. I haven’t felt this way about a demo in a -very- long time. The snow-writing was an awesome surprise and had me literally laughing. Just amazing!

Finally got around to watching this tonight, and it's lived up to all the comments left thus far.

Stellar effort by all concerned; Merry Christmas!

Loved all the tunes and the graphics. Probably it was a huge organization effort to get this done. Respect! It carries the positive atmosphere we desperately needed in 2020. Happy new year and a late Merry Christmas to all the creators! Cheers.

What can I say? This demo *is* mega!

There has never been a better realisation of the christmas theme (including other platforms, adverts, whatnot;)). Every part in it is absolutely great, but somehow the decoration-part sticks out for me.

And now that xmas is over, I can confirm that none of the presents I found under the tree came even close to this one here:))

Thx a lot for this, dear elves!

Accordingly to my "Flip Disk" tunes.
Here come the correctly names:
Flip Disk Side 1, "Mice's Christmas" (the PG name version).
Flip Disk Side 2, "The Little Sugar Baker".

The S1 song is a Swedish trad song called, "Mössens Julafton".
The S2 song is a trad. song called, "En Socker bagare".
That's it ;)

You're right. I missed the second "Flip Disk" tune in the YouTube video.
User Comment
Submitted by iAN CooG on 20 December 2020
flip disk 1 is Xiny_nutcracker.sid, I've ripped it. Xiny\Mices_Christmas.sid is flip disk 2 tune. So the provided sid pack is incomplete and the credits for those 2 parts are a bit messed up ;)

Thanks, Raistlin.

Also, are you sure "Mices Christmas" is in this demo? The first "Flip Disk" tune sounds different.

Replaced SIDs.zip with fixed version .. Mibri's tune had gotten corrupted by SIDInfo editing somehow ... old version had 49 downloads.
User Comment
Submitted by JCH on 20 December 2020
Is it just me or is Mibri's tune bugged in the archive with SID tunes?

My sincere thanks to all of my fellow Santas for being such a great bunch to work with. Trap, Raistlin, and Sparta were utterly heroic in their organisation and management of this project, and I really mean that. What a privilege it was for me to have a little involvement in this thing.

Merry Christmas to all in the C64 scene!
