X-Mass by Paranoia / Lunatic Asylum - Atari ST Demo - The 25ish Days of Christmas - Day [15/25]

What does milk, Pupsi, Windows 95, and a razor blade have in common? They are all parts of the X-Mass demo from 1998.  I was unable to find releases to use for 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997!  Lost to time, or was nothing released?

That is a hard question for me to answer.  I was thrown into the PC world at that time, as I was in college over that period, but I did take time to be drawn back in when PacifiST was released, archiving many of my disks. 

This Christmastime demo from Paranoia & Lunatic Asylum was written in STOS.  The razor blade really seems out of place to me! This demo was the only Christmasy one I could find from 1998.

Capture info -

This video was captured on October 21, 2019.

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.
