Lunatico

Lunatico was my entry in the prestigious X'2016 demo compo. To my surprise and joy it ended up on 2nd place, beating such titans as Censor Design and Offence/Prosonix.

In fact, the overall quality of the entries was exceptionally high in this competition, and the results of the vote were very close, with only a 10% difference between winner and 10th place.

Thanks to Lemming for the video capture!

The release zip contains:

  • Disk images for Side 1 and Side 2.
  • A disk sleeve that you can print out, cut, fold and glue together.
  • SID tunes for various parts of the soundtrack.

I intend to write a couple of in-depth articles describing some of the effects used in this demo. But it will take some time. Meanwhile, the demo note on Side 1 contains a brief technical introduction.

You can also find information and opinions about Lunatico on pouët and csdb.

Two years...and this is the result? Downright amazing! Always look forward to a new LFT demo, however rarely they come out. Can't wait for the technical explanation!

Random question: about when did you write the music for the demo? I'd imagine it would be really hard to stick to writing a single tune over the course of two years. My guess: you wrote the music at the beginning/early-middle period of development and tweaked it as needed to fit the rest of the demo.

Oh, and one other thing: there's a tiny typo in the VSP tool/demo notes where "Lunatica" is written instead of "Lunatico." Not a big deal-just wanted to let you know. =)

As always, thanks for sharing your incredible technical and musical wizardry with us. Hope to see more soon!
