Demo Breakdowns

This category contains breakdowns, or "behind the scenes" writeups of demos I've made.

Some of these are more in-depth, others are shorter, depending on their complexity and how much I can remember about making them.

tAAt new year demos

I've been doing new year demos for tAAt under another nickname for quite a while now. I explain this further in tAAt 2013 writeup, which was the first one of its kinds I wrote.

I've made these by taking an idea and going with it, whether the results are good or bad. The results are all over the place, with both hits and misses.
