Merii Kurisumasu, Japanese for Merry Christmas (who said Japanese was hard? :P), is the 14th contribution to the MRC Snowfall Challenge. Alfonso D.C. created a nice looking MSX1 demo with a logo and a snow-effect.

Joram van Hartingsveldt (ntfaDaedalus) has just sent us an entry for the MRC Snowfall Challenge. This time, the entry is coded in BASIC. The nice snow effect is accompanied by some Moonsound songs created in Moonblaster Wave. At boot, the demo randomly selects one out of four songs.
