The demo was done by Headspin as a way to advertise the game engine but it also was based on a game concept of our own. The one line tag was something like Mario64 meets Myst. We showed it around including at the 3dfx Booth at E3 in atlanta. That must have been '98 or something.

Fun fact about that demo. There was a bug where it would only run so long before crashing which made for some awkward show demos. Back at the office people were working on the bug and every day we installed a new version and finally got it fixed before the show was over. We started talking with Cyan about collaborating with them and began working on Dirt.

Poor simon got left in the dustbin. His full name is IIRC Simon Venture.

Hitting the Tab key will chance Simon into Spider.
But Spider cannot do much. Or you must like the strange effects when you try to move Spider.
Also had some fun playing the Dirt_dbg version.

Sorry it's not fancy. I'm not great, made it quickly, and haven't been using Photoshop because...it's complicated. Sorry about that.
