My favourite from the compo. Several interesting effects inside like the cube transitions in the beginning, motion capture dancing and the final turbulence effect. Great RGB atmosphere throughout

Such a great surprising comeback! Old farts with fresh style. Love the impressive code powering a quite advanced 3d wireframe engine with proper camera control and object motion.

Best OCS release in the compo, well deserved 2nd place.

We want moar!

I've been a Melon fan since the first time I saw Human Target. In my eyes they were pivotal in shifting the scenes focus from record breaking effects and more towards design led aesthetics. A real fuck you were gonna do what we want attitude but with the code chops behind it to back it up.

From me this comeback was something really special and such a great surprise when the beam slide came up. My excitement level spiked! Thankfully they didn't disappoint.

I love every bit of it. From the super bold left of field soundtrack, to the sync, to the coder color RGB palette choice, to the dancing stick dudes... just.. love.. it...

Now time to fire up the A600 and run this on repeat for the rest of the day <3

For me, this is the best demo of the Revision. A real Amiga demo with a normal size (433Ko) in a real .adf. It need a normal Amiga like a 500 or a 1200 to run.
The first place demo is beautifull but with a size of more than 11Mo and coded with a 68060 ! Where is the performance ? It's only a great multi files video made for a HD

Loved this!

I've watched it a few times now and noticed that the text messages will vary. I've seen the children's names reordered. And the messages I've seen after the zombies appear have includes stuff like:

"Don't be scared, it's just one and zeros"
"Not Zombies: Dan, Facet and Paradroid"
"You don't need a time machine when you have an A500"

I tried a little memory searching in Winuae and came up with nothing, but maybe someone else could fine all the variants.

Thriller on Amiga. Stunning physics, motion tracking and chip music by Audiomonster. Wish I would've seen this back in those days when I wasn't spoiled by AGA and way too much CPU power.

The sort of work of art that only demoscene can produce. The camerawork, the small references to things, the technical prowess. All stunning. And I LOVE the last effect, I would watch it for hours.
rulez added on the 2021-04-06 10:05:20 by Preacher Preacher
Nice return of Melon. Can't say I'm fond of the copper bar effects or the zombies playback, but the (hopefully) realtime physics of the cubes kills it for me. The last effect is a variant of the blitter tornado, but well executed. Overall, nice display.

Cheeky text, great choreography, some novel scenes, all technically amazing.

But if there's one thing I hate about this demo is the jarring, epilepsy-inducing color cycling in the first half. It's very unnecessarily hard on the eyes. :(
rulez added on the 2021-04-06 16:55:10 by moozooh moozooh
Honestly, I think this should've placed 4th, not 2nd. But I totally get the hype seeing a famed group return after so long. And it does have that unique Melon flavor. Now to figure out if that cube physics is realtime or not. :)

planet m. is a very nice demo but more a Movement demo branded as Melon. (since all members of Movement joined Melon) and Baygon was designed by the very same Walt as this new fresh demo so I don't see the point to mention this one as example.

Please keep you condescendant tone for you, your taste in demo are not shared by everyone, what is "clearly mediocre" here is only clear for you.

i know that baygon was designed by walt that's why i mentioned it because i can't understand how you can do such mediocre stuff 26 years later.
it's just sad namevoting case because nah-kolor and even noice demos were better and you clearly know it.

i blame voters and i'm dissaponted by walt's "design", especially by coder colours. anyway who cares about my opinion anyway, certainly not melon.
sceners on pouet take way too seriously downvoting these days. i remember when it was normal behaviour.
