Sit back and prepare for enlightenment. Free your mind and let us take you on a journey of colorful visual expressions, eclectic music and animated objects from a different world. A world of “demos,” originating from the European computer underground and created by talented programmers, artists and musicians. The MindCandy DVD contains forty-two (42) of these brief animated music videos, providing a modern day look and historical perspective all created using a PC.
This disc is the result of over two years of planning and hard work by Fusecon, Hornet, and many other people.
DEMOGRAPHICS: BEHIND THE SCENE
A 16-minute documentary film, created exclusively for MindCandy Volume 1: PC Demos by Blue 7 Media
The demo scene is a subculture so obscure that their creative hijinks go completely over the head of most people. Assembly code? Real-time? Non-commercial? What? Demographics briefly lifts the veil of this mysterious community, offering a glimpse at the people who make demos and the scene’s pioneering almost 20-year history.

MindCandy Volume 1: PC Demos was tested on several set-top DVD players (and also the PlayStation 2 and XBox game consoles) without any problems. It was mastered in the NTSC video standard, which is compatible with 95% of the world’s DVD players. MindCandy is also region-free. In short, you should not have any problems playing MindCandy.
While MindCandy is also viewable on computer DVD-ROM drives with DVD player software, it was mastered for NTSC’s color and framerate, and is intended to be viewed that way.
