Hi everyone,

I usually write about Amiga or Commodore related topics, for example demos and games. Today I’ll do something different and write a bit about a demo that was made for MS-DOS based computer systems.

The name of the production is Second Reality and it was made by a Finnish demo group called Future Crew. It was released back in 1993 (soon 20 years old!) at the Assembly demo party in Finland. The demo invoked a positive response from the audience and won the competition it participated in.

There are so many things I like about this demo.. the effects, the design and the awesome music by Purple Motion to name a few.. it’s simply great!

I’ve embedded a video of the demo running below. Hope you’ll enjoy it! πŸ™‚

What do you think about the demo? Did you enjoy it? πŸ™‚ Hope to hear your opinions, so please comment away. πŸ˜‰

You can download the demo via the link below:


  1. Won the competition – awesome! I was just thinking, you know, I wish I knew you “way back when”… as my son’s Xbox once got red ring disease & we just didn’t know what to do. But I bet you would have been able to get around it. You seem really clued up on all this stuff – you & Michael!


  2. I love “plotters” and all kind of dot effects, but what you can see here in 2m:38s is just a slightly improved version of what we can see on 8-bit Atari. And these pictures…
    OK. Maybe I am too snippy πŸ˜‰
    Really, I have mixed feelings about that demo. On one hand, it’s really impressing that “iNTEL inside” world was able to release such a prod in 1993. On the other hand though, in 1993 we – “iNTEL outside” community – had “Arte”(!!!), “Desert Dream”, “Hallucinations and Dreams”, to name few after a quick search…
    Anyways, thanks for sharing!


    • Hi mate,

      Many thanks for commenting. πŸ™‚

      I know, I know, but remember that it was on a PC back then. πŸ˜‰ Hehe.. We Amiga freaks had much better demos, but Future Crew really impressed me with this one. That is slogan I love, “Intel Outside”! πŸ˜€
