And another fresh release from the Sundown 2016 demoscene party: BarBar by Benediction. BarBar is an intro, which uses the special hardware capabilities of the Amstrad Plus series. If you own such a system, be sure to watch it on the real machine (all others will use WinApe for sure :-)).
You can download the demo at the end of this news or directly from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote).
Devilmarkus and ed209 / Slipstream released their new musicdisc “Remember the 80’s” on the Sundown 2016 demoscene party. As you might have already guessed, it features well-known music from the 80’s on the Amstrad CPC. They also participated in the wild demo competition and ranked 2nd.
You can download the musicdisc from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote :-)).
About 2 years ago we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our beloved Amstrad CPC and three more years ago the call for participation to produce a “megademo” was started, which should be released on the 30th anniversary to celebrate the Amstrad CPC. Ok, it is a little late, but finally the megademo was released on the ReSeT #28 demoparty in Coutances / France… and it was worth to wait for it :-)!!!
The demo consists of different parts by various demosceners, which can be selected in a small menu part at the beginning of the demo. For those who do not want to wait, you can watch the recorded demo in the video below, but – as always when viewing demos – the demo looks best on the real hardware. So you should download it from Pouet.net (do not forget to vote for it) and run it on the real hardware!!!
A big “Thank you!” flies to all the people who participated in the production of this demo!!!

Push’n’Pop, a demoscene related website for the Amstrad CPC, is down since christmas. It seems that they had a server crash and were unable to bring back the website, so it will be closed forever. That are very sad news, because they hosted a lot of intersting discussions in the forums, scene related interviews, news, the Push’n’Pop awards, meeting announcements and meeting reports. So thank you for your work over the last years.
