It feels like 20 demos mashed into one. What a superior load of content. Maybe a bit more flashes, a bit more louder and aggressive music, some more colors and some more meshes next time? Just to make sure everyone got there eyes burned out properly.

I did not like it at all until it becomes a fucking demo :D unfortunately some scenes feel disconnected to me in terms of quality and mood. but damn what a fat soundtrack! overall a fun and entertaining prod!

it's all over the place and damn that first scene is so PC game from 1998, but the pacing, amount of content, track and sync carries it home
rulez added on the 2019-09-15 12:57:03 by Maali Maali
the real demo is in the info file

the rest was fun too, enjoyed the speedy cuts and visual fidelity of some of the scenes

i feel like the irony that comes as a byproduct makes it too easy to ignore the subtext, but then again that also makes this more fun for me :shrug:

all in all, the text is shit (aside form the visual fidelity), everything worthwhile is in the subtext which i really hope people would focus on...

Some time has past since You Die from 2002, but this demo is bringing the same feelings, just more, and better. Sitting through the whole compo on the ground next to the speakers... Totally worth it :)

F'kin awesome as F'ck
.............

I wrote the above before reading the nfo file. But i still hold the same opinion. And i would have loved id to read this at the party, and have a discussion about it. It's hard to reflect without spoilers.

And yes, it is a guilty pleasure, but a real, deep and touching one of that.
rulez added on the 2019-09-15 15:46:58 by nikin nikin
vehicles on first scene having no shadows was a bit annoying
the brostep is deep in this one but i guess going over the top on the soundtrack was the point
great sync work, overall direction and quality of the scenes! well done!

Watched it again after reading the .nfo. Like it even more now.
Making a demo about it is a very solid way of communicating a message. For me at least stuff like this motivates design choices. Let's hope more people will embrace the weird and are willing to take risks by creating something new.

In some ways this reminded me of Gift - a big bundle of stuff we've seen (done better) before, but still with something nice going for it. In the case of Gift the niceness was "Yeay, it's in 64k. Also, music!", whereas in Piledriver it's the insane pacing & energy, together with the fact that it's very successful in proving a point.
It's not often that a demo (and it's .nfo) gives me something to think about in this way and I'm really happy that this one did. :)

As a standalone production this party banger is a ghetto- and sofascener's wet dream. It would be entertaining if it won a Meteoriks.

The culmination of the worst stereotypical demoscene taste in one massive prod. I feel dirty watching it. It's kinda trying to be the next 1995, but with sort of modern meta- influences (kevin/jco-like craziness).

Good to see you step out of your comfort zone.
Despite what this demo is trying to do, it manages to be enjoyable to watch. As others have point, the amount of work is clear.

The parody aspect is interesting, but I'd argue that Echo Chamber did a better job when it comes to questioning demos.

I wanted to comment on the fact that I loved the little things is this product, like the Youtube video bar popping up for a second making you think, "Did I hit my mouse? ... on a demo?"

I've heard some troll music tracks that do the same thing. Like use the Discord now post sound so people think something happened in Discord but then the sound effect gets distorted into a drop.

I learned to appreciate your recent demos much more when I watched them a few times at home when the party was over. This one's quite the opposite, but I admit I enjoyed it a lot on the big screen.

well. it's a satire of the 'winnerdemo' style, and, consequently, is full of pomposity and ecstatic tumescence as one would expect. the problem is that, as the well-known maxim goes, "the master's tools can't dismantle the master's house", and thus the message underneath the fireworks remains ambiguous. but there's never enough reflection on the one-dimensional aesthetic categories of the scene so thumbs up for that i guess

PC Demo of the decade! Some stuff feels a bit rushed, but the words make up for it hugely!
