 +====== Winter Gold ======
 +**//Winter Gold//** is a [[tool:​hardware:​SNES]] game released in 1996. A North American version was planned under the name //FX Skiing//, but was not released.
  
 +The game uses a similar graphic technique to the [[tool:​hardware:​Amiga]] demo //​[[wp>​State_of_the_Art_(demo)|State of the Art]]//, and they share a programmer, [[person:​Paul Endresen]] (AKA: Lone Starr). The developer, [[organisation:​Funcom]],​ was founded by, and hired many people from the European demoscene.\\ ​
 +The menu background copies the '​dancing girl' motif found in //State of the Art//, made by tracing pre-recorded video with vectors. In //Winter Gold// the course graphics use the same technique, though the traced video in these cases was originally 3-D. It's one of the most interesting looking SNES games: the graphics look like a jumbley [[tool:​hardware:​PlayStation]] game, and the sparse, considered use of colour and lighting recall //​[[mirrors_edge|Mirror'​s Edge]]//. Effectively the game is just sprites on a streaming background (though one created in real-time--as incredible and contradictory as real-time and streaming seem to be) but feels much more alive than that.
