Nicely done! love that fire scene 🔥


thnx :) some maths and a lot of cunning thinking from the old days… those guys on early demoscene were masters of the trade


Such a lovely pocket-sized demo, just perfect, I love it!

Oh and nice rendition of Joey Beltram's Energy Flash in such little space btw :p 


Thnx :) It was really hard to squeeze everything together, particularly having any sound that felt reasonable (sfx is hard to generate on the fly). The sound actually should be credited to Gruber :P as this was a reinterpretation of his “1 note bass line” pico8 sound tutorial :P
