A demo can probably best be described as some sort of real-time generated music video or multimedia presentation.

Usually a collaborative effort, a demo represents the combined skills of a demo goup, featuring stunning graphics and amazing visual effects synchronized to a kicking soundtrack.

Demos usually display state-of-the art 3D graphics, pushing the boundaries of currently available technology to present a spectacular show of light and sound to the viewer. Demos usually feature abstract three-dimensional shapes, and visual representations of advanced mathemathics.

To fully understand the nature of demos, the best thing to do is to actually download a demo and watch it.

A demo is supplied as an executable program, and will usually take up between 1 and 10MB of disk space, including all required data files. For some people, the demo competition is the main reason for coming to The Gathering.
