@B3L4, It's a subject for discussion for sure: what makes a demo a demo. Technically, this is not just a pic + music. If you check out the code, it's quite an achievement. To cram everything in memory, the hires picture data needs to be in crunched form and it's unpacked while scrolling and playing music. Definitely not a feat any average coder could pull off.

But if you look at this visually (and aurally) rather than from technical aspect, it is just a big picture + music. Would a simple sprite scroller with greetings in bottom border make it a demo?

Also, there's no picture + music category in CSDB and this definitely isn't an intro, so what should it be if not a demo? If CSDB had some kind of tag system besides the fixed categories, perhaps we would have tagged it picture + music + code and filed it under "Weird shit" category.

Hmm, I see much more than just "a picture and a music" in this one.

Love the overall presentation ... great introduction screen and i also love the gfx filling up various screens and the way it moves over the screen!!

I just don't get it. Since when do we call a picture + music a one-file demo? GBW 101% is that but most of the recent releases are not. I respect the Atlantis crew and I got the artistic idea behind this product. It is not my cup of tea so I rather not giving any score.

A prod as bizarre as it is immaculate in its realisation, you crazy boys. The way the tune develops is simply mind-blowing.
