King of Demons 95

Back in 1995 the launch of what was possibly the pinnacle of beige-PC lameness was occurring in parallel with the development of one of the most visually demented video games on the face of the earth. Which just goes to prove the maxim that computers can imprison us or they can set us free.

Computers can do this:

Or they can do this:

King of Demons
King of Demons

Computers can waste our time:

Windows 95
Windows 95

Or they can introduce us to strange new pleasures:

King of Demons
King of Demons

Computers can destroy an entire weekend:

Windows 95
Windows 95

Or they can open a gateway to another world:

King of Demons
King of Demons

Computers can pander to us:

Windows 95
Windows 95

Or they can magnify our potential:

King of Demons
King of Demons

The choice is ours.
