Once upon a time...
there was a tiny, cute computer called the Atari ST, a powerful machine based on an eight megahertz Motorola MC68000. Back in 1987 when the ST godfathers, the Exceptions (TEX), released their first demo "READ_ME.PRG" and the followups "Little Sound Demo" and "Little Colour Demo", the age of Atari ST demos began. The Exceptions were the inspiration for most if not all demo programmers (including the writer of these lines). Dozens of demos have been released in the following years. This website will just list those that should never be forgotten by the ST community...

If you want to relive the golden years, try one of these emulators:
