VIP2 (demo)[edit]

The VIP2 is a Windows PC demo produced by PoPsY TeAm demogroup in June 2000, during the TakeOver (demoparty in the Netherlands) where it ranked first in the demos competition. It was created to advertise for the VIP2 demo party organized by PoPsY TeAm in July 2000. It was later shown during GDC 2001.

In January 2003, the VIP2 source code was released by its authors, which allowed Sesse to port it under Linux.

This demo makes use of a part of a Fear Factory song called Resurrection (Obsolete album 1998). It was the first demo from this demogroup to take advantage of 3D accelerated cards. There's a hidden part in it that can be activated through the launcher.
