Demo of the Month – June

Posted: June 8, 2014 in Commodore 64, demo

My choice for Demo of the Month for June was hard. The month is still in its first half, but I think we already have a clear winner: Cookie from Commodore is Awesome. It is a nice single file demo, with a great tune and great graphics. However, what makes me choose it is the clever coding, matching the lizard’s tapping with the beat of the music and the awesome eyelids animation. It is pretty cool.

The demo participated on Flashback 2014 C64 Old School Demo Compo, getting the 4th place.

Cookie Demo

There is no YouTube video yet, but you can download it from CSDb and try it on any emulator or real hardware. Just remember that the demo is in PAL, so make sure you set the emulator accordingly.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this choice is totally biased, because I’ve coded it – it is my first demo entering a competition! I will try on the following days to publish some programming techniques I used to code the demo, since this is suppose to be a programming blog! Of course, Cookie wouldn’t be possible without the great graphic by Crayon, the music by Nooly, and the entertaining scroller text by Kitty.

On the link below you can download the demo, vote and add your comment. I’d love to hear what you think of it ( even if you don’t like it, be honest! )

From now on, I will post my favourite Commodore 64 demo every month. For April, I’d like to show you Fairlight & Offence – Redefinition. The animation and effects are superb! For my taste the music is not the best, but I believe it fits well the whole demo.
