I really need to talk about Demoscene more. I'm not much of a creator, but I love Demoparties and Compos.
Starting a thread about my two favorite categories: 4k and 64k.
These are computer programs that are restricted to a maximum file size (in kilobytes!), but must also remain graphically impressive.
Let's start with a crowd pleaser: the timeless by Mercury.
This entire animation is contained in a 64 kilobyte EXE file. Everything you see and hear is constrained to 64k!
You can run it on your own computer!
And now let's watch something 16x smaller. A 4 kilobyte demo: The vanishing of Ashlar by NuSan
This is the Vranas instance.
