December at

Written by Wotnau

Wow, that was a big month, December! 48 alpha-news items, this is the record so far! Keep on visiting, seeing, posting!


December was an immensely playful month. There are: ANISO – a new game by Josh Ask Renin Soft, an XMas game by TND (hi Richard!), and two Boulder Dash games: Schaikdash 6 by Ron van Schaik and Xmas Boulder Dash by Firefox. This bottle of nice gaming is cork-plugged by It's Magic 1 going public domain and five new Remember releases. Press fire to play!

Demo-hungry? Try out: Kurt and Doris – a demo by Civitas which stirred up the silent waters of the scene is waiting for you, as well as Rock'n'Roll Butterfly and Free Fall – two music demos from CNCD. Happy 2K2 is a 4kB intro by Civitas and another release by them is a music demo named Theory of Remote Plane Hijacking. Civitas also continue with their famous magazine Publication, finally going bi-lingual (i.e. also English) in #45!. Digital Talk, another German disk mag, reached #52.

Graphic lovers will like to get Guards of Apocalypse – an IFLI Collection by Questor/Albion, and Destination – a Graphic Collection of Katon/Lepsi De.

Musicians and music fans, try Cybertracker X-Mas 2001 Music Pack or Sid 303 – which produces 303-synth like sounds.

Toolmania!!! GeoZIP v0.7, Cuneiform 0.2, Vidcom Stripper v1.0 (hi again Richard!). Enough?

What did SuperCPU users find under the Christmas tree? They got Santa Claus SCPU Demo, and the announcement that JOS and CLiPS will join into WiNGS. Personally, I find this one of a few wise decisions in today's scene.

Scene Buzz & Society

Pixolut is looking for graphicians and musicians to get a demo out. Out of Orderia VI, The Party 2001, Mastersystem Party, Commodore Meeting, Vision 2001, Mail Madness Party 2 – they all took place in December and we brought you either the stuff and results, or a link to them.


This time there was only one – article about Doug Cotton, who recently left CMD, brought to you by Thunderblade.
