From the Days of the Demoscene

The demoscene isn’t gone, it’s just a bit more underground than it ever was to begin with. After all, the demoscene itself grew out of piracy and bragging screens where a given group would take credit for the cracked programme you were installing on your computer. It soon caught on that you didn’t have to pirate a programme to see a stunning audiovisual presentation on your computer.

So when you dig on this video you might think, “Wow, they did some amazing things with the Commodore 64 back then!” And you’d be right, except that this video was made in 2010. Just like the classic 8 bit sound of chiptunes, the demoscene brings the visual side of retro to the forefront. I love this kind of thing, and hope you dig it too.
