The Snowman by Irwin and Tebe - Atari 800/XL/XE Demo - The 25ish Days of Christmas - Eve BONUS 8!

Here is a port of The Snowman Demo to the Atari 8-bit computers by Irwin and Tebe released in November of 2009.

Unfortunately I had to capture this demo from an emulator.  The program requires 320k, and while my 1200XL was up to the task, I was just not able to get it to work.  I'm sure I was doing something wrong with the real hardware.  I had no problems with the emulator at all.

It is really hard to criticize this demo; just the fact that this was ported to the Atari 8-bit, and does a decent job of running is phenomenal.  Granted, it does not run as well as the ST version, and the sound is tinny, but it runs well enough, which is a great achievement.

This video was captured on November 8, 2019.

The demo was played on the Altirra emulator, and captured using OBS.
