The MindCandy DVDs are video compilations of demoscene demos. These DVDs are the result of the DemoDVD Project, a collaboration between several Hornet members.

Volume 1: PC Demos[edit]

The first volume, entitled MindCandy Volume 1: PC Demos is a double-sided compilation of 42 demos from the PC demoscene, including productions by groups such as Future Crew, Triton, Renaissance, and Farbrausch. It was released in December, 2002, and its resulting success prompted the decision to develop a second volume featuring Amiga demos.

The DVD also contains a "featurette", a short introduction film to the demoscene, containing interviews with Jim "Trixter" Leonard, Alex "Statix" Evans and the core members of Future Crew, as well as video reports from various larger demoparties, and rare videos from the making of Second Reality. The discs also feature a tribute video to David "White Shadow" Cooper, one of the pioneer coders of the PC demoscene.

Saint petition[edit]

During the production of the DVD in early 2002, a minor uproar appeared on the demoscene, when various sceners voiced concern about the demo Saint by Halcyon and Da Jormas being left off from the DVD. (Ironically, despite the cult status of the demo, the demo itself was disqualified from Assembly.) A petition was also started to raise the producers' awareness over the demand. The voices were soon heard and the demo was placed on the top of the standby-list.

Volume 2: Amiga Demos[edit]

The second volume of the DVD series was completed, after numerous delays, in December 2006. The production crew visited Breakpoint 2003 to film interviews and demoparty footage. A limited edition preview disc was distributed at Assembly 2005 and offered for download thereafter. Volume 2 was made available in both PAL and NTSC video format. The PAL edition started shipping in mid December, 2006. The NTSC edition shipped in late December, and the official commercial release was on January 16, 2007. The disc is single-sided, dual-layer, but otherwise is packaged similarly to Volume 1. On May 15th 2012 an announcement was made on Defacto2.net indicating that volume 2 has sold out and that both the PAL and NTSC editions are now available for free download.[1][2]
