Nice AS3 demo; Oldskool on Flash 9.

I am a sucker for a cool as3 demo ;-) Via flashforum.dk I got a link to Joa Ebert’s AS3 demo. It is made up of several engines/effects including texturemapping and andre-michelle’s raycaster. It even has a voxelengine, the first actionscript one I’ve seen next to my voxelengine. The music is a mod file playing back, so it’s actually the first Flash demo I’ve seen with semi generated sound. Pretty cool. Wish I could back at the FC64 sid chip effort soon, and do some sound coding there.

This is pretty much a code only demo; although there’s visuals, there’s no “style” or any graphical setting, a trademark of techdemo’s. If you look at the development of for instance pc/amiga/c64 demo’s, they came from being tech-only in the 80′s to the more style oriented demo’s like Fairlight’s “Come Clean”( youtube alert!). Obviously Flash as a technology has a big headstart upon those old days tech demos, with it’s background as a designers tool, so hopefully we will see hybrids of good tech/good design demo’s in Flash soon.

Cool stuff.

Check it out.

(Turns out comments where broken on my blog, since the Gridserver migration, fixed now).

    Is it just me, or there’s a comeback of the old skool Amiga spirit?

    There is already a couple of cool flash demos out there at flashscene.org.
    I personally liked ‘Travolta’ and ‘Even More Explosions In The Skies’ best
