sorry to say that public voting is really a pain in the ass sometimes. I Know this is not the best intro on earth, but i beleive this should have ranked much higher than this.
I m getting fed up with rotating flat shaded cubes. I also know that self voting sucks for most of you but I like the prod we did, and there is no reason not to say it.

Hmm. Definitely a bit boring, repetitive, and lacks colors. Where is the design? A waste of nice routines. Worth a piglet, I expected more from such experienced blokes.

Well if you leave out the lame repeating dungeon scenes, and don't overuse the glow, this could have been a decent intro. I like the music though.

there's one strange thing here - the softsynth (or something else, but i assume the softsynth) seems to be incredibly slow. it breaks up all the time on my nice and fast p4 3.0, which makes it almost unwatchable.

am i the only one who found this one plainly ugly?

Surely not bad.
Nice music but a tad standard.

I doubt whinning about public voting, and (always) self voting your own prods will make the public eager to vote for your prods.

poi : then if i win one day it will not be due to public votes :)

music is good, the demo itself is boring and sooo slow

after the second part framerate drops to 1fps and less, so i had to press escape.
guess it has some problem with my not-so-unordinary system (winxp, radeon9600xt/256mb, 1gb ram).
screenshot looks nice.

very mediocre. yeh, the fps drops badly at some parts. the dungeon horror looked rather poor too.
The "doors open" design is pretty worn already, and the code is unbelievably slow at some places, but also some of the scenes are quite beautiful. It really needs to be ore tight, though.

nice one, although towards the end repetive concerning the plot. could and should have ranked higher.

i agree tomcat... OH SHIT, NOO!

An ok thingie, but it's running too long.

Boring "look how many effects i can squeeze into this intro" intro.....next time think about the design, u folks got the talent to do alot better.

i agree, it should have ranked higher. but the dungeon scenes were totally out of place.
rulez added on the 2005-08-29 12:59:05 by dipswitch dipswitch
nice, but toooooo long and code is also not really that optimized..

seriously, i think music is nice, gfx are great (i really enjoy the matrix monsters with bunch of tails), but code need to be improved (bump is nothing without shadows that dungeon look awfully empty and static as hell even if its a nice model, scenes looks a bit empty, really slow for what it is). could have been really great. but i think this should have been 1st or 2nd.
added on the 2005-08-29 14:46:05 by skarab skarab
COme on, it's not about self voting .. this one is clearly above some prods that ranked higher.

i must admit i dont understand why this one came in 4th place.for me it was the best one in the compo.
sure its slow,sure some parts are a bit out of place, but still it was the best 64k

Music was nice, but the graphics and synch were so-so imho

ok ok, by reading that i know what you all think, titan should not have been ranked that high. sorry.. it aint my fault, good prod guys!
rulez added on the 2005-09-12 15:38:00 by iks iks
ok but to long lasting i prefer snappy things that come like a cicada-storm and eat your brain leaving you with a WOW! sorry this one was just ok for me
Not bad. Some scenes were cool and others were bad. Great tune.

You can download all soundtracks separately on our website.
There is an alternate version of the Vanity Fair soundtrack available. Actually that version was the first one. But on Evoke I noticed that my music didn´t really fit the intro and therefore I made a new version live at the partyplace. Which was a good decision I think.

Well, I'd thumb up for SOME parts. But the color scheme was kinda strange, and the wall could've used better textures, imo [I don't like bricks, but that's only my dislike :) ]
And again, something I didn't get was - why are the things on the hexagon field moving in such a way? O_o
But the ideas were reather original, I think. So it is a half thumb up.

awesome visuals! music... naja... ´;P
rulez added on the 2006-02-06 18:38:54 by ewerybody ewerybody
Very good. Both visuals and music. It deserves higher than 4th place i think. I watched all brain control intros in a row and there is an obvious quality rise. Especially in their last two intros (this intro and memories form mcp). Now i have higher expectations ..

Pardon Sky! "naja" of course means "quite a cool track but imho not his very best" iou1

some nice parts but very boring. some parts are plain ugly as well. music is ok.

ugly, boring, slow, buggy, no direction, no design, mediocre music.
