Since I don't know the exact answer, I'm forwarding this question to the
mailing list.  http://scene.c64.org didn't seem to provide any answers,
except a link to In Medias Res (http://www.imr.c64.org/imr/zimr.htm).

I don't know what you count as "intro" or "demo", but according to one
article (http://www.imr.c64.org/imr/article/z2afi_b.htm), the scene
existed already in the early 1980s.

I write you because I assume you are a C64 scener.
If this is wrong or if I bother you, I apology.

On late 80's I was friend of I.C.S people here in
Italy, but I was lame on C64 since too young.
On Amiga, I formed a crack group quite good and
then joined Ram Jam and made many demos, also
Java ones (www.anfyteam.com).

I am trying to answer an old question;

Now, I know on Amiga the first intros was done
in 1996 by HQC and few others:


I've seen an AFL intro of 1986 too;
But, I don't know for sure about who made the
first intros on C64, when, and I haven't the
screenshots or files for emulator.
Also, I wonder if really the first "intro",
in other words something with text scrolling
and few colors at least, being not a game and
made by crackers or similiar, was made on a C64,
or maybe there's some vic20 or older PC intro?...
Also, it's not clear who made the first PC
intros, it seems in 1988-89 by future brain
and humble guys:


I think however that's trustable.
The most missing infos are on first C64 intros
and first worldwide intros (if it's the first
c64 intro or someone made one on unix or whatever).
Could you help?
