The 10th annual Scene.org awards results were published and the Batman Group won 3 prices with their great demo “Batman Forever“. It won in the categories “Best demo on an oldschool platform”, “best technical achievement” and “public choice”. But that’s not all, they also ranked 3rd in “best graphics” and “breakthrough performance”. So a big congratulation to the Batman Group, thanks for showing what is possible to do with an Amstrad CPC and for the entertaining demo.

Here is the video of the demo again (but of course, it looks better if you watch it on the real hardware):

The Revision demoscene party took place in Saarbrücken / Germany  during easter 2011. On 26th April, a report about the Revision was aired in the TV programme “Aktueller Bericht” of the SR (Saarländischer Rundfunk). The best about the report is, that the Amstrad was mentioned first and you will see scenes of the Batman Forever demo. Btw, the two guys in front of their CPCs are Eliot and Hicks…

Here is the video:

[UPDATE:] You can also find the video in the SR Mediathek (choose “Treffen der Demoszene” in the menu of the player).

The Batman Group released a new demo for the CPC and raised the bar for demos a lot. Well, I just watched it and I am still overwhelmed by it and guess that I have – after all those years – a new favourite CPC demo. This demo has all what you expect from a good demo: good music, a music loader (which will play the music while loading new parts of the demo), it is a trackmo, doesn’t consist of too many scrollers and features very cool effects. You should watch it in any case!

You can download the demo from Pouet.net and watch it online in the CPCInAJar emulator. However, it is always better to watch it on a real CPC!

UPDATE:

Norecess added an interview with Rhino, the coder of the demo, to his website. Be sure to read it.

UPDATE2:

You can now also find an extensive interview with the team behind the demo on the Push’n’Pop website.
