Today it’s time for another Amiga demo I recently discovered. It is called 40 & a Blunt and was made by Y-Crew. It was released at the Maximum Overdose 10 demo party in 2012 (28-12-12 to 30-12-12 in Lübeck, Germany) and ranked as number three in the competition. It is not actually a demo though, since it falls into the 40KB intro category. An Amiga 500 with 1MB of RAM will run it fine.
The music in the intro was made by my old friend Rebb of Paradise & TRSI and he sent a greeting to me in the production. If you by any chance read this Rebb, I must say thank you for the greet. Will contact you again soon. 😉
40 & a Blunt is an old-school type intro, featuring several golden oldie effects. It took me back in time and I enjoyed the ride. The music is a cosy chiptune and it fits well with the overall theme of the intro. I enjoyed watching the plasma and copper effect and reading the text at the end of the production (many messages from the creators to other people etc). If you want to watch it yourself, I’ve embedded a video from YouTube below. If you’ve got an Amiga, you can download the intro via the download-link at the end of this post. Hope you’ll enjoy watching it! 🙂

What did you think of the intro? Did you like it? Hope to hear from you. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
That was cool.
Nice stuff, but speaking of recent old-school productions, please take a look at two Atari XL/XE intros that won intro compo at SillyVenture 2012, an Atari demo party:

Hope you’ll find it impressive 🙂
That IS impressive. Amazing what these programming magicians can get out of their machines. 🙂 Thanks for the link. Much appreciated! Will check out more stuff from that party.
Absolutely love the intros and demos from back in the day – brilliant to see the scene’s still alive in 2012 🙂
Thanks for commenting. 🙂 Glad you liked it. The Scene is still alive and there has been quite a few releases recently. Now I’m looking forward to Easter – a lot of good stuff is usually being released at that time of the year. 🙂
I try to follow your blog occasionally. Great to see people noticed our little release! br, Rebb/TRSi^Paradise
Glad you liked the post and thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Keep up the good work!
