Graz2004 - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
The Graz2004 Demo was created by Simon Quernhorst for presentation at the 2004 Austrian Artst Festival steirisc[:her:]bst. This isn't a demo of a game, but follows the tradition of creating graphics and sound demos that push a system's hardware to the limits. Demos of this nature have been created for many years, and you can learn more by visiting sites such as

The Graz2004 demo starts by flooding the screen with water from a valve. After the screen is filled to a certain height, the letters GRAZ rise out of the water. A jumping ball above the letters bounces them individually into the water. A vertical bar then appears, crosses the former water and in the center a picture fades in. The vertical bar with a picture starts moving up and down before fading out again. Afterwards, colorful rasterbars - being one of the oldest demo effects on the Commodore 64 - fill the screen and a logo appears waving horizontally while the colors of the rasterbars are rotating.

Simon created a limited run of 10 signed and numbered Graz2004 demo cartridges.
