I keep meaning to 32bit my demo, "Demo6399", not remotely in the same league as the spectacular ones above, but part of the earlier generation at the end of the 80s inspired by Alt-Mans (Hugo Fiennes) series of demos 1-5. This was before anyone outside of university had the internet (which was email and ftp back then, the web was still years away), and it spread round the world by people putting floppy discs in the snail mail to their friends. I was amazed that only a few months after its release, letters dropped through the postbox saying "Hi I'm from South Africa, have you written anything else? Tell me about whats happening in the UK Acorn scene." I would be great to find out where all those people are now.
