It'd be nice to see these demo guys put their efforts into making a killer game for these old systems. After three decades of this same shit over and over, I'm a little dried out.

Most of the A8 demo guys make games too.

I'd be interested to know which demo crews have made which games.

XXL, Avalon, Gury and Cosine spring to mind.

For example, Cosine have made these demos:

Greetz0rz (A8) :: small demo for Forever 13

Axelay-style scroll test (A8)

But have also made these games for the XL/XE:

callisto for Atari 8-bit

Battle Eagle (Atari 8-bit) :: final game

As there are some Atari XEGS with Stereo Surround Sound (not the pokey solution which requires additional programming) in the wild I'll bet it may sounds finally even better on these machines.

That was nice!  That animation of the planet as the ship orbits looks fantastic.

It does indeed and the music is also good :)
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks
