@Jazzcat: I combine SounDemoN with Finland, cool demos and Dekadence, while I combine Onslaught with Australia, Vandalism News, Cracks and refurbished games and not so much with coder pron demos. But I agree that this is just my emotional image. I would love to see another Britelight&SounDemoN demo from Dkd and was surprised to see this gem here instead. But with the fantastic work from Deev and Hein, it makes sense as an ONS release, no question.

One of the best demos of 2006 and I somehow missed it! -WOW-! SounDemoN, this is brilliant work! I love the style - how the screens build up and keep you in tension with adding more and more - then the tiny details with all the cute animations - then the many jokes and ideas - then the brilliant graphics and overall design - then the soundtrack - and it is one of the most impressive onefilers as well, which gives extra credit from me.

I think this demo is heavily underrated. I also find it strange to see SounDemoN doing this magic under the ONS label. Somehow unfitting to my mind.

you're not the first to mention the similarity to Electric's pic, although it was totally unintentional. Whilst I had seen the TP3 pic before, it didn't come to mind whilst I was designing the IFLI in this demo. I was actually quite influenced by this picture My Trans (I know it doesn't look too much like it!) coupled with a few sketches I'd drawn.

nice demo, definately fun to watch! ;-) Finally a space-demo again!
Nice ideas for effects, it could do with a little more styling, but the very nice IFLI (the hair reminds me quite a bit of Electric's TP3-pic -> Compopic ) and Heins totally awesome sprite-animations make up for this lack quite a bit! ;-) Too bad the IFLI didn't really show off the FLI!

I doubt it's 41 columns. More like 40 columns and 7 pixels. :)

What is up with the 41 columns? Is this a new trick? How is it done?

What can I say? This one file demo is really cool. I like the intro part, and also the oldschool effects :) Intensity's hardtrance music is brilliant. :)

Lovely design and atmosphere around this production. Nice to see another onslaught demo. The intro had such a nice oldscool feel all over it :)
