Demos are special computer programs. They are beautiful presentations made by talented people - programmers, graphics, musicians - just for fun. This is real electronic art. Size-limited demos are called intros, and there are some categories of them - we have intros in 64 kilobytes, 4 kilobytes, even in 256 bytes and less. It's wonderful that some people make very impressive effects in so tiny space.
My name is Pirx and I adore intros. I collect them - my assemblagel includes thousands of small productions (intros, games, cracktros, BBStros etc). You don't have to search for intros, download and unpack them one by one - you can get world-biggest set in one ZIP archive!
Get the ultimate intros collection and enjoy:
Antivirus note: archive contains thousands of executable files, so it's recommended to disable antivirus software while downloading and unpacking. Most of antiviruses detects some threats in the package - these alerts are false, and they are caused by sophisticated compression methods applied for many intros.
Opinions, suggestions and help with completing collection are very welcome.
