Really lovely demo--looks like a marvelous technical achievement and the messaging is on point. Congrats!

Thank you!

I think there still must be a game somewhere in that engine... even if you haven't found it yet. Give yourself a well-deserved break and maybe the idea will come to you when you least expect it.

Nope, it just isn't suitable. But I already have 2 other engines that are waiting to be made use of for games, and I'm already working on that ;)

I've been asked a few times to release the music separately, and finally I got around to do it! Here it is:

https://soundcloud.com/retream/the-cure

(The quality is higher than in the demo itself due to the limitations of the Amiga hardware - for details, check out the "About the music" post in the Community section of the demo page.)

And sorry for the delay :P

I just found out that the demo earned me a nomination in the New Talent category of The Meteoriks 2021 (that's the demoscene equivalent of the Oscars) :)

Lately I realized I could make the startup and cleanup code of SkillGrid more robust, so I improved it further. I decided to apply the same improvements to my other productions, and today it was THE CURE's turn...

v1.1 (20210602)
* Made startup and cleanup code more robust.
* Fixed (unlikely) memory leak in cleanup code.
* Replaced "actual" with "current" in standings graphics.
* Fixed/improved README.

The new version is available for free download from https://www.retream.com/THE_CURE.

Wow. Just wow. Probably the most meaningful demo I ever watched. A perfect example of technology emphasising the messages.
