Demoscene the AGA years vol. 2

Demoscene the AGA years book

The Amiga Demoscene, from its inception, has always evolved with the times, and reinvented itself, always pushing the limits of Commodore’s flagship machine. From the Megademo, at the end of the 80s, to trackmos in the 90s, 1994 was the beginning of a new development for the Demoscene, with many demos released that used all the power of the Amiga 1200.

Alice, Lisa, Paula, Gayle and Budgie…

The Amiga 1200 was released in October 1992, and was the third generation of Amiga for the home market. Like its Amiga 500 brother, it was designed to be a single box solution, incorporating the keyboard, processor, chipset, floppy disk drive, expansion ports internal and external, and support for an internal hard disk. The 68020 processor running at 14MHz was supported by 2MB of memory, AmigaOS 3, and the new Amiga Advanced Graphics Architecture – AGA.

    What a trip down memory lane! Fantastic quality book and a must for everyone who enjoyed the demo scene a few decades ago (or just want to learn about it now)

  5. Marin

    A beautifully designed book with informative insights about the demoscene. Well researched, well written, a history of the corner of the demoscene.

  6. Rnooo

    Livre très classieux, photos magnifiques. Je me suis surpris à faire de belles découvertes. Merci pour ce magnifique livre que je recommande à tout fan d’Amiga.
    Une version dans la langue de Molière aurait été un plus pour moi.
    Bravo pour tout ce travail et encore MERCI

  7. Kay Pirinha

    In my opinion the two most beautiful books about the Amiga demo scene – This series has a special place in my bookshelf. I am already looking forward to the third part! Keep it up! 【ツ】

    Awesome work, really brings the memories back!

  9. KubaSlonka

    I’m great full that this books don’t exclude any of the countries active in that years. It’s a good position for everyone involved into scene but also for any enthusiasts!

  10. roudoudou

    great work, many interresting interviews and high quality pictures (like the first book)
    as a non Amiga user, i discovered many demos i missed and the past of people i knew on PC scene

  11. Marc

    I have bought both edition! Amazing books! Amazing Quality.

  12. Merman

    I really enjoyed volume 1 and volume 2 is great too. I backed through Indiegogo and got the extra postcards, which look really nice. And the book itself is really well made, with the handy QR codes and so many great interviews with the sceners. It gives a really good flavour of how the Amiga demoscene was developing and making use of the new AGA hardware. Top work.

  13. NO I DO NOT WANT TO RETURN THE BOOK!

    NO! I DO NOT WANT TO RETURN THE BOOK! WHY WOULD YOU ASK ME TO RETURN IT?!?

  14. aPEX

    Fantastic work! Thank you very much. 🙂 I love them…

  15. Sink (verified owner)

    Quality, photos,etc.. All is perfect!! A must-have!! Demo or die

  16. Chris

    A high quality book remembering a lot of demos I knew but also discovering many others I did not ! A great job !

  17. MaD][/SSP

    This book is simply awesome!… every (not so) serious scener needs this really bad! sometimes you simply fell too lazy to dig out your hardware just to show off someone else what demoscene means so this books come very handy (unless you neet to show some moving pixels with sountrack…) 😉

  18. ville9

    Beautifully designed an very informative – I really love both books!

  19. Panayotis

    Incredibly TOP quality. Love both Demoscene books, looking forward to the third one.

  20. Ricardo/Suspiria72

    Excellent second book in this series. A fantastic time capsule and trip down to memory lane. So great to have some background info about those fantastic demos i enjoyed on my Amigas during the 80s/90s! A book/series about the 8-bit demoscene would be awesome also 😉 Thank you for this splendid piece of work.

  21. Denis

    Both container and content are gorgeous. So great to have all these first hand memories from interviewees. A really good job from the author. A must have for anybody who grew up with Amiga and/or the demo scene.

  22. derblack

    fantastic quality! Perfect coffee table book

  23. BatteMan

    Une incroyable série de livres dont j’ai bien cru qu’elle ne verrait jamais le jour mais son auteur/éditeur s’est accroché et voilà le résultat, et quel résultat ! Deux magnifiques pavés, complets, détaillés et intéressants à lire (dans la langue de Shakespeare uniquement, pour le moment ?). Merci aux Éditions 64k et Amiga rulez ! ^^

  24. Coma79

    Every Amiga demo scene fan must have. Great books with amazing quality. Second book is way better translated to English. Excellent work!

  25. Norby

    Thanks for this amazing demoscene books. High quality pictures and logos, many great stories, interviews, demoscene facts and comments in two awesome books. A lot of work here, I love it! Thanks again and I recommend it very much.

  26. Peter Sandhøj

    Super quality and very nice book, with at lot of stories and pictures form the early 1990’s. If you have ever had an Amiga, then you must buy this book!

  27. Javier (verified owner)

    Just love it!!!

    waiting for vol III 🙂

  28. Niels K (Split/BLC)

    What an amazing trip down memory lane. I was simultaneously reading and going to Youtube/Soundcloud to find all the Demo’s and amazing music from that time period. Both books are well worth getting if you were at all involved in the Demo scene or if you just loved the productions.

  29. Neil D (verified owner)

    Love both of these books. A lot of work has went into the coalition of their contents and i’m loving the detail and the beautiful imagery. The post cards and poster are also a nice touch. Well done on a wonderful 2nd book that every amiga fan should own. (As well as the first of course!)

  30. RT

    Got both books, vol.1 and vol.2. Very happy with the quality and content. Looking forward to vol.3!

  31. Diego G

  32. Lars Rabech

    The quality and feel of this book is spot on. Breathtaking fotos and interesting text to it. Supercool with the QR codes. I’m looking forward to vol 3 👍🏼

  33. Bithead

    I ordered Book2 and two sets of cards and it almost got lost in the mail, but wih great help of the people of Editions 64k I eventually received it.They even put some extra goodies with it!Thank you soo much!!!
    Then the book, like book 1 it is simply stunning, the quality is great, the prints are sharp and colourful, I read some of the stories and they are a trip down memory lane.The cards are beautiful too.Highly recommended (I’d say mandatory for any Amiga freak)!
