Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : History of the Amiga part 8: Demoscene
   posted by Jeremy_Reimer on 29-Apr-2013 21:15:55 (1623 reads)

Part 8, or 8.5, or 9, depending on how you’re counting, has been posted at Ars Technica!

In this instalment, I look at the demoscene, the amazingly creative group of people who made demos on the Amiga (and later the PC), held demoparties, and pushed forward the limits of graphics and the imagination.

Reaction to the article has been very positive:

"This article gave me chills. Excellent, excellent writing." - generic_1013

"Thanks author, I’m loving this series even though I just found out that it existed. Here’s hoping that it won’t take so long for the next instalment." - secretknight42

"Awesome article and I got a mention in it too -- woot!" - MrNSX

Great read and watch, thank you.

I hope they end the series on a high with mentions of the current Amiga scene, across the spectrum of flavours.
