Graphics are interesting, although everything else doesn`t appeal to me. A lot of distorting text and textures in somewhat random order.

Great material, although i don't like the music at all, in a demo point-of-view.
Maybe too much filled with good intentions.

cool music, nice graphics but no code, too much additive blending and some ugly texture wraps

Final version of this demo soon. Look out for it!

Pretty visual, funky music to say the least... I was sort of bored still.

Really great to see handdrawn graphics being used in demos again and it looks nice, but it needs to do more than blending layers to make a demo. Not so good.

What's a problem? GOOD demo. Great soundtrack, beautyful pictures, right sync. Not enough? May be. But how care? :) Demo gives positive feeling, so it's all right.
rulez added on the 2005-03-28 15:46:30 by Manwe Manwe
Very nice soundtrack, but the demo feels like it is not breathing, like there is no pulse.

Oh and Shane : Thumbing down every production does really make you look like the vicious spoilt bastard of VIZ... :-)

Fair enough ! I still think that a thumb down should not be reserved for demos that 'don't run on my machine' or 'I don't like this particular style' (or even worst, PC suxx, amiga rules etc.etc.).

hmm... disappointed me a little, after seeing the title. Too many blended layers perhaps, and the tune isn't my taste. The artwork looked really good tho.. i'll have a look and see if i can find them in the data folder later for a proper study. Otherwise.. well, quality, deserving of a rules for sure, but not really my cup of tea

This is the first one I watched yesterday and somehow it felt that I liked it most of them. Groovy Jazz sound, solid designs and syncing, and some nice effects!

Only one good thing on this demo is outstanding Virgill´s music.... All other things (design, gfx) are multilayer boring crap.

For Virgill´s music thumb Up, but whole demo is a little dissapointment...

the bits
nice Effects (liked the flower deforming)...are you using PS_crap?=¿ no I supossed not, great then!! taking the juice directly from the GPU, huh? :D
the pixels
great inspired drawings and sincro
the samples
pretty original music

That kind of demos should be viewed once another time and another, I'm missing details, a lot of work yes, I've enjoying it
rulez added on the 2005-04-29 21:11:44 by JaK JaK
Oh so nice. Very good style, good gfx, the music was very nice and gave the demo a smooth style. The particle effect was not as good as the other ones :-/

Sadly i missed this in the compo because i wasn't really paying attention (there were way too many PC demos and most of them sucked - not this one).

The demo seems badly bugged here. Every scene flashes pink and green, and the demo hangs my system. :( The few bits I did see looked pretty good, though.

added on the 2005-05-05 20:18:50 by magic magic
Artcity.....Did you spin around already? You can if you look at it differently and like 2d demos instead of 3d demos :D
added on the 2005-06-12 12:52:31 by magic magic
isnt the pink and green from the debug d3d library thingy? I was told that happens when you set some illegal states or something.

As for the demo. It is rather good looking, but there's too much additive blending in most parts to make out any effects. Some scenes are just flat looking additive mess.

2d backgrounds are rather nice. No ugly colours in here either.
I liked the ribbons towards the end. Saving thumb for the final.
added on the 2005-06-12 14:09:24 by loaderror loaderror
s_tec: yes, the pink and green is debug d3d runtime; switch to retail

This demo just rocked! I would have ranked it higher than 14th.

added on the 2006-02-04 23:17:35 by Virgill Virgill
Great music and 2d but the effects here are almost nonexistent and they mostly make it harder to see the nice art on the background. It *is* enjoyable, check it out.

But the soundtrack rulez! Also this song, albeit shortened, appears in Pump It Up Pro 2, and can also be found in "In The Groove 3" StepMania community song pack, which is where I found it.

Entertaining music but the effects look like a half-heartedly done VJ set...
added on the 2015-09-19 02:07:20 by cce cce
overall ok
Lots of really weird and messy design choices justify the poor ranking. Just to give an example, the logo at 1:25 nearly reads "Fart City" thanks to the emblem on the left that surely wasn't needed there. The soundtrack is a mixed bag as well; it's almost impressive how it tries so hard yet makes the utter lack of originality its goal at the same time.
