Still nice but surely not my fave tbl demo.

Cannot wait for a video version...TBL rocks anyway.

The scenes seemed a bit isolated

worst tbl ever.

looks like 'fast work' with some no so fast work :) some scenes is VERY GOOD (like fog in end of demo, spirit of girl, first scene), and some scenes sucked very much (black/white rotate triangle, and just blue color sea in scene with mountains). Last scene looks like a bit 'hardest part for end this fucking demo'. Becouse to much time music playing without any effects..

in other words, it was can be VERY good prods, but in all ot this fact, not so.

But as always, good prod from tbl :)

Rank 3 was absolutly correct for this demo. I hope they will carry on even if:

- they didn't win like each year
- the title is requiem
- some TBL members have obviously changed the platform to Sony psp.

Really, really good. Some absolutely awesome code in there. Should have beaten the EPH demo, IMHO.

good stuff, some scenes are dreamlike while others seem just like a remake of old ones. anyway, reallly like the tbl style. the music is great, too.

I'm thumbing up for the real scene spirit. The demo was released for other groups in Amiga compo. There is no pleasure in winning in an empty category. And now we should wait for the next step.

WTF?! There were 7 other amiga demos! Thats not an empty compo!

Awesome music, but this and the ps2 demo kinda made it feel like TBL jumped the shark here :/

Very good (though short). This and the Ephidrena demo had similar ideas behind them that fits the time we're living.

One of the mediocre TBL demos, well yes there is again the same 3d engine which rocks, but it seemed quite rushed. Still, the music rocks!

something is missing. maybe its the motivation.

I missed louies gfx but rubber do it as he can.
Final with one more scene and a little fixed gfx will be nice.

Compared to their previous productions, not very good.

Rushed and without the gfx we all love in TBL productions. Nevertheless, it made it to the top 3, showing the guys still have class and guts.

Perfect proof that TBL demos live on Louie's graphics.

could definitely do with better graphics. too bad louie left kalms & rubba on their own this time. cheers for trying anyway, even though I caught myself thinking some of the gfx was done like this just for spite.
added on the 2006-04-20 11:03:19 by heetach heetach
i liked it, yet compared to what is being done with louie, it's one of your weaker efforts. =)

not bestest TBL prod
I was kind of disappointed at the party
but anyways it kicks !
rulez added on the 2006-04-20 12:02:36 by EviL EviL
ok, after rewatch some days later on a correct PAL screen it looks pretty good.
It's the 1st TBL Amiga prod with another designer after >5 years of Louie-Mania.
So there are quite some things to improve on.
Not the code coz that is brilliant as usual.
The overall timing, dramaturgy and textures couldn't catch up to f.e. Magia, although the few graphic stills where beautiful.

But what the heck...this must be a tough job to reach those standards with the first production to design after the audience was so pleased with Louie's style and expected such this year. So don't take the critics as a reason for quitting the Amiga platform ;)

Nice code and music as usual but lacking in design. Thumb anyway.
rulez added on the 2006-04-21 23:43:17 by grip grip
If it wasn't for the TBL-logo at the beginning i wouldn't believe that this is actually a TBL demo. Quite a disappointment...
The music was great though.
added on the 2006-04-22 00:22:49 by zoom zoom
This demo does not deserve the hard critics above.

Sure a couple of scenes lack a bit of proper lighting, but there are other parts that are really cool, such as the siloutte forest part, the detailed tree and the greetings. And as said the music is fantastic.

Good but not the winner
rulez added on the 2006-04-23 02:35:19 by Stelthzje Stelthzje
When I watched it again I could see all the nice codework that has been put into this demo. But you managed to conceal that quite well on a first impression.
Looks really nice most of the time, but like Gargaj said, it feels like something is missing. A disappointment for sure.

Seems like TBL lost a designer/art director?
added on the 2006-04-26 02:08:24 by Steel Steel
After seeing the video: Congrats for the great 3d engine. Seems to be light years ahead of the other demos in the compo.

Anybody can draw polys either fast or accurate. The real art is to do both at the same time. 99% of the amiga demos fail in that.

but, it is not the best demo of tbl.
added on the 2006-04-30 09:52:31 by got got
tech stuff:

some of the screens are really good. the star with shadows is great. also, i thought i saw some lightsourced texturing.. and the rendering is really accurate like other screens are rather dull like the ghost girl.. some alpha sprites used in a static way imho.

this demo would be great with better designed scenes, more textures and better movement.

i'll give this the benefit of the doubt and thumb up.

typical low quality Amiga flyby.

Nice music and the foggy forest could've looked quite nice if the machine could handle it, but otherwise not worth watching.

Hehe always nice to see Shane thumb down something that requires about 2,000,000 times the amount of talent he has to create.

All the "if it was on PC it would automatically be better!" whinging is also hilarious.

It's not Silkcut
It's not Ocean Machine
It's not Respirator Stories
It's not Lux Erat, Dixit Deus ;)

But still...

It's Requiem.

Music lifts this demo to very high spheres, but what else to expect from Blaizer? However, the rest of the demo, in my opinion, lacks the "oompf" that would put it at the peak. Very cool beginning, though, and I liked the theme of inescapable decay.
Requiem definitely deserved second place in the BP06 competition.

Thumb up for
* The awesome music
* The excellent graphics (especially the stained glass windows and the wall in the opening part)
* The foggy hillside
* The burning mansion (at least, that was my interpretation)
* The super-detailed tree

Thumbs down for
* The grayscale star in the bowl
* Something about the ghostly girl drifting around looked awful inanimate
* The scene right before the ghostly girl where (at least in the vidcap) the framerate was almost too low for that kind of movement

I'm seriously not seeing where everyone says this is mediocre. I like this better than Ocean Machine. That said, I still think Lux Aeterna Luceat Eis should have won the compo.

very unbalanced prod. some scenes are simply stunning while others drift too far from the general style of the demo or are plain ugly. sure the music sounds nice but is way too epic for the story arc. i've seen better tbl for sure
