Nice demo ... no new eFX, but a cool and relaxing dark-design ... :)

Quite enjoyable... it all feels so 1994 in some peculiar way, especially the music (I liked it)...
But it's a pleasant watch even if teary-eyed nostalgia is not your thing :)

Overall I liked this demo, even though it's a bit slow-paced for my (usual) tastes. The design is good, but strangely the whole thing only seems like a 64K intro, not a 4 meg demo.

I somehow thought the same as thom. But still a nice demo, with nice feeling, nice flow and very nice music. Unlike many slow-paced demos, this wasn't boring at all IMO.

I agree. Nothing mindblowing here, but a real must for sentimental oldskoolers.

I think the music alone deserves a thumbs up since tuneful tracks like this are so rare these days.

I'm Blown Away By This Outstanding Piece Of Work, And The Music Puts Me In a Cosmic Trance!! EXCELLENT!!!

Where can I Obtain a Copy Of This Soundtrack?

Ehrm.. I totally agree that it could have been a 64k intro - but that would have been without the music (1.5 megs) ... also, the demo was finished in a hurry and I'm pretty sure there's some unused data included in the zip...
We left out quite a bit of effects etc. because of lack of time, but I'm glad to hear there are some people who enjoy it anyway :)
The music can easily be found in the zip file.. in the music subdirectory... demotune18.xm..

Yeah, nice software demo!
rulez added on the 2003-01-17 14:18:32 by Optimus Optimus
well coded software engine is great at recycling typical hardware effects and there's some good fontwork..
otherwise, rather dull and lacks ideas or concept.. not a lot to criticize but not much to like either. i find the music very cloying, sorry. this demo is not *bad*, just overrated.

but in a few years, it woudln't matter if this
production would have been created or not
why did the authors go through the mess
of even creating it?
No one cares anyway...

Cheers! Good demo!

crying through the whole thing, Thumb this up for **MEMPHERIA** any day.

A bit bland somehow, but the music is nice and moody and the credits effect kicks ass.

damn, first time i forgot to thumb it up

A very mellow and "philosophical" experience that is achieved by both the visuals and sound being a little heavy-hearted. Great use of particles/flares as pictured in the shot. (welcome back from '94, particle tunnel) They work well in other scenes too.

The first "ball over a pool of water" scene and "the end" seem completely out of place, the latter also being ugly. The blob that can be seen in the shot is also pretty much a standard demo prop. Nice little demo nonetheless.
