The Spiral, a Megadrive demo by RESISTANCE

Post by astrofra » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:34 pm

Hey folks,

our friend Gligli went to EVOKE last week end, to submit his latest creation (along with a team of 4 artists from the RESISTANCE demoscene group) to the "Alternative Platforms" demo competition. : The Spiral for the Sega Megadrive/Genesis
The demo ended up in 4th position (on a total of 17 entries) and I hope you will appreciate the hard work here :

The "Pouet" link is here :

A YT capture done on the real hardware is here :

The demo features several technical breakthrough :
- An audio track that plays on FM + a full PCM Stream
- Transparency FX
- Realtime spherical distortion & zoom
- Full Motion Video at 25fps
- Realtime voxel landscape
- "Shadebobs" particle system in bitmap mode

As always, the demo is using Stef's SGDK as a framework :)
640 polygons are enough for everyone.

Cool demo! When will there be gameplay in 3D? FMV is no longer surprising. Genesis can do more.
