|Thanks to its multimedia capabilities, the Amiga computer was immediately embraced by the demoscene, and in turn it gave prominence to the scene and to its culture.|
If you are not familiar with demoscene productions, you can think of a demo as a compact, self-contained piece of software that combines and demonstrates art and technical excellence. To better appreciate a demo keep in mind that everything you see and hear in a demo is generated in real time by computer code (there is no pre-rendered animation), and that the code itself is relatively compact (which is part of the challenge). Unlike in a game, there is no interaction in a demo: just start the demo, and sit back and enjoy it.
Amiga Forever contains a preinstalled selection of well-known Amiga demos, preconfigured for one-click launching.
Additional demos can be downloaded from the sites listed below.

The following is a list of the major sites which include or link to Amiga demos with permission of the copyright holders:
Some multiple-disk demos may require a key to be pressed (e.g. Enter, or one of the two mouse buttons) to confirm that a new disk has been inserted.
The demos are stored in the "Demoscene" directory, inside "Amiga Files" when installed on a Windows system.
