Since I’ve started gaining interest in the SEGA platform, I have begun checking out a few demos for this console. I found one I just had to share with you. It is called Bad Apple and it was created by FLM in November 2012.
It’s quite an entertaining production and its style reminds me a bit of State of the Art by Spaceballs on the Amiga.
I wouldn’t mind running it on a SEGA Mega Drive some time in the future, that is for sure. It’s really cool that people create stuff like this. Anyway, I have embedded the video below – hope you’ll enjoy the show!
Hope to hear what you think about this prod. Feel free to leave a comment below. Would love to hear what your thoughts about this SEGA demo.
Thanks for reading!

Hope you all are enjoying the time of Christmas and that your preparations for Christmas Eve is going as planned.
Today I want to share another demo with you. Remember the one I wrote about a while ago that is called Future 1999 from Pers’ Wastaiset Produktiot (PwP)? If you enjoyed that one, you’re probably going to like this one too. It’s just as surreal and spooky..
The name of the demo is Large Unified Theory and it was first released at the Alternative Party 2010. It won the main demo competition at that party.
Chances are that you’ll get a new perspective on Chess after watching the demo..
I’ve embedded a video from YouTube below, so that you can check it out for yourself. Enjoy the show! Hope to hear what you all think about this particular demo.

I’ve been watching a lot of old demos lately and one of the strangest ones is Future 1999 by PwP (Pers’ Wastaiset Produktiot). It was made for the Commodore VIC-20 and released in 2009 (it was made in 2008, but released later). It won the old-school demo compo at a party called Stream 2009.
The demo is a bit scary and has a serious atmosphere surrounding it. It portrays a society where humans are completely monitored, from birth to death. Everyone is identical and only a number amongst billions of others. You’ve got machines that measures each individuals level of happiness and strange apparatuses that grows people. If someone dares to rebel against the system, they’ll be vaporized with the push of a button.. still, humans are mounting a resistance.
As mentioned above, the demo came out for the VIC-20, an old computer from Commodore. This machine saw the light of day back in 1980 (!) and sold about a million units. As you can imagine, creating demos for such a low-end system is no easy task.. It’s therefore quite impressive that Future 1999 features digital sound samples….
Anyway, I’ve embedded a video from YouTube, so that you can watch it for yourself. I’m very curious on your opinion about it, as it is quite different from normal demos.

Recently, I’ve been spending some time watching demos made for exotic platforms such as the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and the MSX. There is a vast amount of good demos for these machines and it is simply amazing to see what people are able to get out of them.
Today I had a look at a demo called Aeon by Triebkraft and 4th Dimension. To keep it short, I was very, very impressed by what I saw (and heard.. awesome music!). It was released at the Ultimate Meeting back in 2008 and won the low-end demo competition. The party took place in Karlsruhe-Durlach in Germany and is usually rganized annually between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
I’ve embedded a YouTube video of the demo below, so that you can check it out yourself. It contains a lot of cool effects, catchy music and good-looking graphics. It’s incredible that it runs on a ZX Spectrum! Anyway, hope you’ll enjoy the demo as much as I did.
