Moppi Productions is a Finnish-based demogroup founded in 1996. It is mainly known for their story-based demos and the demo authoring tool Demopaja. The demo ix, released in 2003, won a total of three awards in the Scene.org Awards gala.[citation needed]

Moppi is usually referred to as the "numedia" demogroup; their demos generally rely on a combination of design and effects, accented by a multitude of design element overlays. Their music is most often some sort of trip hop akin to Massive Attack or Morcheeba.[citation needed]

They became well known on the demoscene for their streak of second places in demoparty compos: starting in 1998 they have released demos consistently placed second in their respective competitions. In "ix" the group, tongue-in-cheek, adapted the catchphrase "We're #2 so why try harder?" - the demo, ironically, also placed second. Their Assembly demo titles also incremented through the alphabet starting with Further in 2000 through Jalousie (a demo that was presented at the party, but crashed during the presentation and the binaries were never released) in 2004. While Moppi did not release a demo in 2005, Sumo Lounge presented an animation, entitled The Week, as his final project at the Lahti Institute of Design. It carries the style of Moppi releases.[citation needed]
