the fulcrum is an MS-DOS demo by matrix released at Mekka & Symposium 1998.


The demo opens in what appears to be a 20th century city. A humanoid walks into a building, accompanied by a flying camera drone. The humanoid lowers itself into a pit, where it is broken up into pieces by a shaft of light. Then, the "dream" sequence begins: we see a vision of several tribal creatures summoning an eagle over a campfire.


The demo runs in a custom software engine.
