Mescaline Synesthesia by deMarche (ZX Spectrum Demo)

Ok so my first post in 2010 is about a demo for a 28 year old computer (the ZX Spectrum) but bloody hell, what a demo it is! Here’s a collection of grabs (from Pouet):

… and here’s the demo on YouTube.

Bear in mind that the humble Speccy is running on a Z80 at a mere 3.5 MHz – that’s probably significantly slower than the processor in your microwave oven.

    I was at “The Party” in the early 90s, 93 or 94, don’t remember exactly, and besides the PC demo competitions, they also had C64 and zx spectrum demos. One zx spectrum demo was realtime wolfenstein 3d like graphics. On C64, it was possible to use the processor in the diskdrive as a co-processor to get more power.

    How the fuck do you do bumpmapping or METABALLS ON A SPECTRUM?

    One thing about the Speccy is that it had vibrant primary colors, something the Apple II and C64 didn’t for some reason (that I remember…)
