Love this scroller - and I need to look at what’s actually involved making one of these one day. Kinda agree that it might’ve been better centralised on the screen, though...

I also wonder “what next” for this ribbon scroller... or have we reached it’s limit already?

Nice one, Bjoern. Now please let this routine rest in 8-bit heaven ;) So great to see some new stuff from you.

Great scroll routine, and fucking-ace scroll-text (even though it gets hard to read due to all the twisting :) )

fantastic, the shadow is exceptionally well done.

did you really only have 1 rasterline left for music, or did u just find this light force rendition fitting? (with which I agree;)

Cool and smooth!! Everything perfect here, except the effect is not centered to the screen which bothers me a bit. :-D

I fear a bit you're going to become master of one routine but I cannot help love it. It's soo polished already <3
