Nice prods, and welcome back Lieves!Tuore Smile
'Illusion', original concept, for that it'd deserve #1 from me too. The zoom-rotation thing is getting kinda old though, having been used in MSX Unleashed and Utopia too.

I liked the Illusion anim.. was it realtime? Or just frames of a small movie with unique tiles per movie frame? Tongue

It was a great party again!!
Thanks to Nyyrikki, ahti, ravel and everyone else.

There's just something weird, Somehow I got the honour of donating the racing competition prize, even though I didn't provide that cool beer bottle. So, whoever gave it, thanks for that belongs to him/her.

BTW, that racing compo was fun!


Waiting for next year!!!

Big thanks to all of you, who participated!

I think this year party was a great success and expetially demo compo was something I didn't expect to catch this much entrys with this good quality.

dvik: I think I have to thank you for Lieves!Tuore comeback. I think the most important thing was that they did know that they have a team against them that can make demo that can really compete in quality. Last year they saw that you guys can make demos and this is what happened.

Kepekset: Sorry that I did not thread you well on the party place. I feel bad now... I hope you'll come up with a new, maybe better entry next year. Tongue

NYY: perhaps I missed something, but that full-screen red scroll, stretching/rotating, is that one available as well somewhere? (not referring to the small one in the invitation demo)

wolf_: Nice, that you spotted that, but why on earth someone would like to download outdated text scroller???!!! Question Well... weird are the MSX users.... here you go...

Huey: No, that game is not available for download. It was meant only for party visitors to play, rest of you need to wait untill the game is finished and polished. Even at this state I can promise it will be worth the wait. dvik & Joyrex have done astonishing work with the physics engine and artificial intelligence of computer drivers.
