Jammer: Spot on regarding the lacking visuals, there literally aren't any bytes nor cycles left for any sugar sprinkling on top. :D So i tried to capitalise on the idea of "imagine this intro for a crack, released in 1988". =)

The music player isn't all that new, though. It started out as the good old music.s from Artefacts and after Dalezy manually ported over his tune previously composed in Goattracker, i squeezed the shit out of the code and tune data, both then became a custom-made size-optimised monolith. :D Didn't take more than a week combined for the both of us.

Good you waited until last day to release this compo-killer. Would have totally demoralized many other entrants if released earlier. ;-D
