Done for the Atari ST demo "20 years".
It's in the the Creators part if you wanna check it out. (Warning: It's not pretty!)
For emulation I recommend STeem.

Was great fun to work on and I think the outcome is decent.

Your mastery of light and color is really what ijmpresses me the most.  The totally original and excellent character design and spiffy composition are just cherries on top.
