Even if you’ve never been curious about what computers in the 80s looked like, you might like to see all the emulators on this page. Multiple computers are covered here, including the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, the Spectrum 48K and a few others I’ve never heard of. The nice thing […]
Open Cubic Player and Mods
Oh dear. This will be so niche that nobody is going to read. Anyway. Long before MP3 files were a thing, the world had mod files. It had s3m, xm, and it music files. There was a thriving scene of musicians creating music for the love of it. Files were […]
Freespin – a 1541 demo
Demos come in all shapes and sizes, 4k, 64k, intros, demos and more, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen a demo running on a Commodore 64 disc drive, or 1541 drive. You can read more about it on the Freespin homepage. The 1541 family of drives […]

Cat Vibing To Levan Polkka
Remember that cat vibing to Levan Polkka? Well, C64 demo coder Logiker created a C64 version and it’s awesome! It’s a one part #PETSCII production and a funny addition to the #demoscene. You can find it in the usual places but if you just want to watch it look here.

The picture above was shared by Raistlin/G*P on Twitter saying: Razorback delivered this stunning piece for Memento Mori. This is a 408 pixel wide multicolour bitmap that […]
James Last plays the Beatles
In the mid 80’s I found a cassette tape of Beatles music played by the James Last orchestra. While I sort of knew some of the music this was the first time I heard many of the songs and I preferred this orchestra version to the original! The next time […]
Before I knew about revision control
Going through some of my old C64 discs and I found a bunch of “work in progress” demo parts and routines I was playing with. Back then I didn’t know about revision control but it was a pleasure to find these bits and pieces of code that I had completely […]
Yes, yes, another C64 demo. This is Scrollwars, released in 2013. How, just how?
