||North Party 1997 (8th - C64 demo competition)|
Another one of those produced-for-a-deadline products, Set Piece was assembled in a short space of time and sent off for release at the North Party. The most outstanding effects are probably the ones that nobody seems to notice; the Kefrens bars routine that has graphics down either side was something that we had never seen done before (although T.M.R went on to write better versions) and the "invisible" ball routine just after the intro is subtle to the point where that third ball doesn't even get mentioned when people talk about it!
The name comes from the title of a Doctor Who New Adventure book written by Kate Orman and published by Virgin. Unofficially, this is a follow up to Sometimes... in that it duplicates some of the effects and updates them with some few new twists.
Trivia: there is a sort of hidden "part" - simply wait until the end of the multiplexed sprite scroller at the end of the demo...
