I was quite surprised that this won the Lobotomia demo compo, though it was no way the worst entry. The same sort of chaotic weirdness as flo's intro f:lo.

I'm not too fan of this kind of demostyle, but the technical merits more or less compensate for it, so here you go :-)

HOW could this win the compo, i don't really remember anything, did we cheat on the voting?
added on the 2002-06-16 18:24:17 by aropupu aropupu
don't know about technical merits, but it's really toooo slow for my p3 650 geforceDDR 512mb ram... :(

fucking great, flo stays in my top 5

bad and slow.

Apparently I just didn't "get" this one at all. Nothing strikes me as special about it.. Which is why I feel I'm not qualified to give it thumbs down.

just because it's weird doesn't mean it means anything.

funny prods!

"Taide." Well timed screenshot :)

Hmm, well. On the screen this was pretty damn cool indeed, but at home it just feels empty somehow. Can't give any thumbs right now.

Damn good music in that (short) last part, anyway.

oh and btw. use the lower resolution, for some reason it's incredibly slow in 640x480
added on the 2002-06-16 21:50:27 by aropupu aropupu
jamen, så ok da!

i must agree Tomaes: it´s bad and slow. first Place? oh no. and i can also see my mouse on screen.
sucks added on the 2002-06-17 01:20:14 by diver diver
diver: the mouse thingy is a fact in several windows demos, so not really a reason for negative rating (just lazy coding)

office xp owners just kill that ctfmon.exe and should work ok.

This rocked big time. Could have been the best flo prod ever, but due to slowness (i have a p3/666) i must say vaiva 1.0 is still the best.
rulez added on the 2002-06-17 08:14:39 by kurli kurli
i didn't like this one at all
sucks added on the 2002-06-17 09:17:30 by Jcl Jcl
crest: the mouse thing was not the reason for my negative rating. the first minute of this demo is boring (imho). and than the music turns in something like BAMM, BAMM, BAMM. An the effects still get not better. I couldn´t find the style in this demo. Sorry. it has nothing for me. That´s the reason. and this is maybe the second "suckz thumb" of my short pouet.ent life. i respekt many demo makers, but this one??? no way. the first place?, no!

at least fucking evil on the big screen. i voted this for #1.

This didnt pleasure my visual stimuli nor any other stimulis :)

i think this is one of the best flo prods i've ever seen.

diver: to be honest, I have not watched the demo because I think I will be disappointed (and the screen shot looks not that promising). It's just not so easy to make a weird or satori style demo which also *looks good*
added on the 2002-06-18 04:41:18 by Crest Crest
The best demo I've seen from flo. This was really cool on bigscreen, but not that cool at home. Still rulez :)

can't really see that winning the compo..
sucks added on the 2002-06-18 21:49:12 by _-_-__ _-_-__
Wow, this was garbage. Yet I did watch the entire thing through. For some reason, the audio/visual mess presented before my senses was mildly amusing.

lively, striking, unique. Though I might be biased because I sat in Paavi's Datsun 100 in morning drinking kilju. ;P. ASTU ROCKS(especially his music)

watching this demo drunk in lobotomia02 was KEWLLL

crashed twice, uhmm..
it was ok on 320x240.
First place.. everyone was drunk..

ofcourse we were drunk, it was a fucking demoparty.

drink Molotov and even the worst demos shown in a compo will look outstanding

Molotov - making the scene look blurred since 2001
added on the 2002-07-03 02:06:50 by funktion funktion
is it supposed to be short and end abruplty?
it suddenly exits when the 'beats' start on 2 machines I tried it at.

bhead: it did that for me in hires. worked in lores tho.

rulez added on the 2002-07-03 09:53:32 by quaz quaz
MF!, you are wrong. i did drink quite a lot of molotov, and still the worst demos(the ones from jumalauta and wamma) were shite.
and i would have loved eskapismi even if i had been sober.
added on the 2002-07-03 13:45:32 by nosfe nosfe
well, then you must be immune and there is no need to waste good stuff on you anymore ;)
added on the 2002-07-03 16:19:40 by funktion funktion
it's not wasting if i get drunk.
added on the 2002-07-03 20:38:22 by nosfe nosfe
i know it's buggy like hell and i'm working for final release. also, 640x480 mode is damn too slow, try smaller one or shut the blrblr up.
i hadn't got enough time to test demo enough and blahblah.
i love you
added on the 2002-07-04 23:48:37 by astu astu
it doesn't even move on my pc. i get something that looks like the screenshot here on pouet -- and then nothing more happens (though the music continues)
astu, i love you too!
added on the 2002-07-05 13:52:10 by nosfe nosfe
astu shows this time that he can also code and not only drink enormous amounts of kilju

great coding + design but the music blows
rulez added on the 2002-07-13 19:43:09 by gaygor gaygor
astu should be coding more.

Astu's mindflow is sometimes incredible. Some people don't seem to appreciate chaos, but should they?
rulez added on the 2002-12-19 06:27:26 by viznut/pwp viznut/pwp
this sort of thing reminds me of what happens when you close your eyes and try to sleep after being up all night and having eaten something funny.. ran smoothly here.. good effects.. unique design.. interesting choice of images.. the music was done well and suits the style (or anti-style) but it made my ears bleed so if i watch this again i'm shutting audio off :) it's a rulez but mostly for audacity..
