Somehow I feel like I've seen this before ;) The colour scheme is a bit annoying sometimes, however the rendering based in that colour scheme creates nice oranges.

But I'm afraid I can't thumb up this prod mainly because what you hear is not what you see, in other words.. the music is quite cool, but just doesn't fit (imho).

powerful minimalistic nu-shool design, supplemented by fitting music and font.

very athmospheric, relaxing stuff.
(only dislike is the "poetry")

The text is not poetry by a far fetch, and the music rules.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 00:29:01 by Radiant Radiant
If you look really close you can see red, green, and blue squares, and you can even turn your speakers off to change the music a bit :)

Totally boring. Ugly font as well. Some nice visuals though and somewhat nice music.

I like it's warm temper.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 02:00:30 by ALiEN^bf ALiEN^bf
It's not designish or good looking or anything - basically it's one effect and a fuckload of variations seen years ago already. Hell, even the atmosphere is a bit shabby because the ugly font and the lack of transitions... But somehow it has something that's captivating. Maybe it's the message. I wouldn't know.

And ironically Butterfly-effect was on TV here some days ago...

Nice ... slow flow, not varied, but still coherent stuff. Could have used more modelling. But please :

At least, smooth your fonts, next time :)!
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 09:27:09 by kohai kohai
I liked it but probably won't be watching it all that many times. The music could have been a bit better too, imo.
added on the 2006-03-06 09:32:55 by Axel Axel
I agree with hollowman (but we've all seen worse scene-poetry ;).
Music was great!

The text was no good (sorry if someone was pouring their heart out), but overall I enjoyed this.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 11:36:26 by Sverker Sverker
im sure this could have been done without a pixel/vertex-shader card. I dont have pixel/vertex-shader on this. I could only see black and white.

rulez added on the 2006-03-06 11:55:22 by kusma kusma
no! this is weak for a 5++ mb demo. should 'thumb-down' for a 64k too :( only one thing saved the demo from it: this is the first demo in this week... :/

(strange... i have no problem with the music, somehow fits for me ...)
added on the 2006-03-06 12:02:26 by AbcuG! AbcuG!
nice effects and music!
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 13:17:29 by fgfgf fgfgf
Should have been 64k, but otherwise really good. Nice tune, nice style + effects, and the words were good for me. None of the usual "my life sux and i wanna die" crap at least :) Solid thumb up.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 13:18:52 by psonice psonice
@activator: it doesn't need any pixelshader card actually, but i use an extension for rectangle textures that aren't to be found on crappy cards.
added on the 2006-03-06 13:29:08 by bzz bzz
the tune lifts it but the .exe size of >360kB for
at least one effect refuses a thumb
added on the 2006-03-06 13:29:29 by d0DgE d0DgE
What difference does the .exe size make? We don't live in the assembler days anymore..
added on the 2006-03-06 13:38:40 by Preacher Preacher
Preacher: That doesn't mean optimization is obsolete either. Anyway, the .exe size is ok for a normal demo, especially considering it was coded in such a short time (without any special tools).
added on the 2006-03-06 13:40:58 by Radiant Radiant
I gotta second Preacher. I prefer an optimized frame rate over an optimized filesize anytime. In fact, I couldn't care less about filesizes. Did we get broadband for 1k-intros or what? :)
added on the 2006-03-06 14:30:35 by Axel Axel
the text was a bit distracting, found myself looking at it instead of the pretty effects.. music is superb.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 14:33:18 by lithis lithis
buzzie: has nothing to do with crappy cards. my friend has a top notch card that doesnt support rectangle texture extension.

trigger: what card?

nice....but i don't like it at all
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 16:22:15 by Spewk Spewk
exe size is large because of poetry i see.
demo itself is relaxing (but on the edge of being boring).
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 16:37:01 by anesthetic anesthetic
i laughed my ass off at the poetry at the party, but other than that it was nice
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 17:52:58 by ricky martin ricky martin
good music and good effect.
especially, particle effect was nice.
however, I feel that should be done with 64kb.
rulez added on the 2006-03-06 18:09:11 by got got
the text is really horrible, and the effects are pretty simple, but still it manages to look kinda nice :)

the music is very nice yeah
the rest would have been nice if u
- used a proper font
- synced the text to the music
- didnt only use yellow
- would have added a starfield
- and a copperbar:)
but the music was so nice i forgive u.

Nice colors and tooooo cheesy poetry. I don't know if I'm supposed to laugh or cry.

Should be 64k intro.
rulez added on the 2006-03-07 15:31:39 by sauli sauli
As to colours, yellow normaly is considered to be the colour of hatered :) Also it's hard to call those few lines a poetry, but what the hell do I know, right? ;) It's emotional - fine, but missing a lot. Mood is indeed nice and overall it's a pig :)

- The "story" felt a bit cheesy.
+ Music and the atmosphere
+ The minimalistic and stylish design

It's simply clean and nice, thumb up!
rulez added on the 2006-03-15 11:38:11 by Happy-H Happy-H
the illusion that the music and the repetitve effects could create is broken by the texts, all those superficial phrases, including the title.
added on the 2006-03-15 12:01:39 by Ger Ger
good music, no graphics (only text on white screen and black bars.. with many fades)
boring text. we don't wanna know about your love life :P
sucks added on the 2006-03-15 18:42:04 by BarZoule BarZoule
BarZoule: white screen and black bars? sounds like you got a bug or something since there are no bars in this demo. only particles and triangles. and the background is yellow.. sound to me that your card doesnt support the rectangle extension or something.. what do i know.. and who said it's about my love life? i could be anyones. is it even about love?
added on the 2006-03-15 19:00:33 by bzz bzz
Very nice atmosphere, music's great too, but I have to agree with Gem, the 'poetry' is kinda rubbish. Thumbs up nonetheless.

Hm. The effect is pretty nice. For 15 seconds. It's getting rather boring after a short while. Also the typography is so not thought of. Could be a lot better.
Soundtrack is fine, but no more than that.
And oh, i really like poetry in demos (e.g Shapes), but it has to be deeper and more vivid. This "demo" has potential, but for now it's a vague piggie.
