It was only a few weeks ago that we released MD201603 but now we'd like to present MD201604 - a "bog standard" demo on the C64 with code by T.M.R, new music by Odie and text from the same and Enigma which was put together during a little four person internal Cosine meeting yesterday. A good time was had by all and, although Kryten couldn't stay long, he hopes to get back to doing 8-bit things soon.

The months are just flying by at the moment and, since the end of March is nearly upon us, here's MD201603 for your delight and delectation. Code and the character set are by T.M.R but, in a first for the Monthly Demo series at least on the C64, this one has shiny new graphics and music from aNdy! And we're pleased to announce that he's also taken the very
questionable bold step of signing his life away to join Cosine - nice to have you on board!
Finally, there's more news from Odie's music studio; the latest piece to receive the remixing treatment is the main theme from our 16K cartridge game Vallation 16K and it sounds very nice as well! Why not have a listen over at Soundcloud.
| So we were asked to write an intro...||[posted by TMR on 01 Mar 2016] |
Adrian at newly-minted Twitch channel Gamerz Xtreme wanted a custom-written intro that he could edit the scrolltext for and T.M.R came up with some oldschool raster bars and cosine movements. Gamerz Xtreme Intro is the release in question, stuffed full of rasters and using an old 4-Mat tune that felt appropriate since it's a remix of Rob Hubbard's Crazy Comets.
Odie has been busy as well, along with producing the sample loop used in T.M.R's side project release Macro Clone Cafe, he's also come up with a gorgeous new version of his piece A Sporting Chance - Cosine fans will also know it as the music from Blok Copy!

MD201602 just squeaked out into the wild before midnight even if this news item didn't! The code and graphics were by T.M.R with music from Sack and it has DYCP scrollers because everybody loves those... right? They do "wrap" around some raster bars if that helps!
