When Grey and I discussed the compo rules for the VCS compo, I also suggested limiting the cartridge size to 8k. On the one hand, 8k was the typical size of most VCS cartridges. On the other hand, 8k can be filled within some weeks so that I won't spend so much time on the demo. All effects were ready after six weeks. And they took 12k. Damn. Consequently, I spent four more months reworking and coding to squeeze it into the 8k boundary. At the same time, I was hoping and waiting for Jakub Husak to complete the tune for which I had reserved 1k. The first deadline passed, and Jakub sent the final music on the night when the extended deadline also passed. After 1 hour of tracking down a bug in the player routine, it compiled correctly and reported 335 bytes free. WHAT? 335 bytes free? I cannot release an 8k demo with 335 bytes free. So I sat down and added most of the stuff and details that got removed in the months before. Four hours later, i.e., 2 hours after the extended deadline, I sent my mail to Grey ... who had extended the extended deadline meanwhile ... thanks ;-)

The result is ISO, which went 1st place in the first VCS-only demo compo in history. 

ISO - Final version

It also climbed to 3rd place at the top of the month of Pouet and received great feedback. Thanks for all your votes!
