Atari ST Cracktro [014] Blade Runners from Pandora

I will not have too many stories to write for 'CrackTros' (Demo screens that appeared as introductions to cracked video games) as I did not have very many of these back in the day.  I am mainly recording these now because they are art, and need to be preserved.  I will also attempt to transcribe the scroll text, which will be posted in a companion blog entry linked above.

Having done a few Blade Runner intros, I decided to capture some more, so here is Pandora, which previously showed up on a combo disk with Thundercats!

At this time, this cracktro does not seem to have an entry on and does not currently appear to be included in the Fujiology collection.

Capture info -

This video was captured on April 7, 2018.

The demo was played on an Atari 1040 STf, TOS 1.4, 1MB, equipped with a CosmosEX from Jookie.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video was edited with Shotcut.

Transcription of the Scroll Text:
