Can confirm 1988. Remember watching it at Fist's home pre-christmas 1988. So likely made late 1988.

This demo is not from 1989 but from 1988. The scroll text mentions "Gaplus has just been released". Gaplus was released in 1988.
Also the SID tunes are from 1988 and the SYS line of the demo mentions 1988 as well. I will therefore change the release year to 1988.

Zeus, my Klick demo is from around the same time and uses precalc'ed graphics from GigaCad.
Pity I don't have a date for it.. might also be a 1990 production.

Nevertheless, Smooth Criminal is WAY cooler then my stupid little production :-D

This demo was the first to make use of precalculated graphics as a main effect.

A real entertainer at that time. The music (Smooth Criminal) was very nicely adapted.

First part (the chessboard one, on the screenshot) loox pretty cool! Second part (with a precalculated logo spinning around) is also okay.
