What a ride! Awesome work Guys!

No doubt. A new historical milestone in Atari ST demoscene was set by you guys. Just blown away.

Thanks a lot everyone. Really happy you enjoyed the show :-D

@Brittle, celebrating 35th anniversary of the Atari ST was also about uniting oldschhol and newschool, especially at a party that unites all Atari scenes for so long. Very clever from you to have noticed it ;-)

Indeed an amazing prod, so much content, and so many details on all levels, serious work here!

Can anyone confirm it is a ST demo, and not STe?
4 megs ST are kind of uncommon :D

@Dbug: it works on STE, but requires only STF.

The demo looks incredible, so polished and so fun to watch! Code, design, graphics, music are all top notch. Thank you so much for that :)

Has anyone found something they disliked about this prod yet?

JessOVR - 16:53 22 August 2021 #

Guys thanks for the super comments on the prod!! We're so happy it pleased you, that's the true rewards!!

@YQN we certainly could have done better here and there, and you know the drill, as a composer you only see the flaws in your piece ;) ;) - I wish I'd have more time to refine this pattern here, that sound there, that transition there etc. but at some point, we had to release it so ... ^_^

<3 <3 <3

I was waiting for the release and/or a video to enjoy this marvel in good conditions. I cannot wait to watch it properly as the shining jewel made with love that it is. Thank you so much guys for making my heart beat suddenly faster and stronger!

This is a true demo ! They can code, they can draw, they can compose... Bravo !

Uh, oh... I can feel it... the goose bumps! The chain of events leading to this skin change usually starts with a stimulus such as cold or fear... or a new ST demo from the Overlanders in 2021! What a wonderful way of celebrating the 35th anniversary of the ST! Welcome back guys, hope you stay around for a while!

Very honored to be mentioned in this demo! I love you Mates!

awesome prod!! any chance to make this run from harddisk? or is it disk only?

RATI - 16:50 8 September 2021 #

@all, thx a lot for the kind words.

@twh_f2, no plan to make it run on harddisk. Too much rework. So disk only I'm afraid.

RATI - 09:29 30 May 2022 #

Allright, so we've finally released an HDD version of the demo. It's in the ZIP file.
