Yes, a MFX product I liked
rulez added on the 2007-04-09 17:21:58 by mSW mSW
uhmm, way too "sharpen" for my taste, some nice effects (but not that far from aether etc), cool but somehow crossing-the-weird-line music... and the script is not catching me... I'll wait til I watch it in a more proper mood to decide on a thumb or not.
added on the 2007-04-09 17:25:16 by zomb zomb
not too shabby at all, but not as nice as expected.
the female ahhh's and oooh's really drive me insane.
visuals feel a bit bugged, but ofc it's all intentional i assume.. :} still a thumbup, compared to nowadays standards.

the visuals vary from very beautiful to looking like a b movie. great soundtrack

Demo hangs while going over a 'river' in the beginning.

Decent looking demo, but not much content and the music is absolutely abysmal and ruined the whole thing.

I was actually embarrassed when watching this in case my neighbours overheard the music.

Warm. Maybe not of 'win the party' kind, but very smooth to watch. Great voices collage and cut sounds. Music fits to peaceful atmo. More to impress than express. Not for disco but who cares...

lacks the bubbling tension of other mfx prods - but i like

Looks very nice, but the music destroyed everything. It doesn't fit to fireballs and vulcans.

Not my cup of tea, I guess. Especially not after Deities. We had fun singing the Katamari Damacy theme during the rolling ball part though :)

gloom thanks.. considering that this demo doesn't have any recycled code or effects i find your comment a bit off. slight visual references to (and recycling of some images from) aether is intentional.

i like its overall bjoerk-ish feel. props for the camera work, the landscapes, the aesthetics. the music was brilliant and fits perfectly with the visuals! only that winged creature kind of object was a turn-off. it gives the demo a nasty smack of 'fantasy' that doesn't go too well with it ...
rulez added on the 2007-04-11 22:23:53 by monroe monroe
this bizarre show creates a special feeling - thanks to expressive aesthetics and wonderful music. mfx manage to keep me at it.

rulez added on the 2007-04-12 07:30:37 by zeebr zeebr
uncle-x: oops. :) well, it might not be the same lines of code, but as gargaj says, it it surely in the same visual vein and that was my initial reaction when watching it on the stream. now, i've seen it a couple of times since then and i must say that i like it very much, but there is more than a "slight visual reference" if you ask me. not that it's anything wrong with that, it's just.. well.. i'm almost always baffled by the things mfx put out, and this time i wasn't.
added on the 2007-04-12 09:44:16 by gloom gloom
seeing this made me feel rather empty. yes, it looked nice and was technically superb even with its flaws, but... this isn't kind of mfx demos i'd like to see more in near future, more 1995/deities/aether would do it for me.
sucks added on the 2007-04-12 12:05:49 by jenni jenni
Ah yes, everyone needs to make what I want and have it all be the same, innovation sucks, and you just recycled lolz the scene is deadzorz.

This rules because people wanted something else and MFX didn't give it to them.

The part where I also love it for what it is - well that's bonus.

gloom: you've been recycling that avatar for quite a lot of comments now!

about the demo: It's nice and moody, the graphics looks good and the tune works well - but somehow it all feels a bit empty and meaningless to me. I'll leave this one at a piggy for now.

yeah, this demo is so much like vihreät lehmät that i don't like it either. also, the name could've as well been dose 3.

But the visuals aren't up to par with the previous MFX demos. Time to take a break or change directions I'd say.

hm, what should I say. again music and demo did not fit together. but, this time i cannot say it's because of the noisy music and overloaded effects. music made big progresses but it also seems randomly puttet toghether. i don't know another way to explain it. so overall a pig again.

Not my cup of tea and boring after some time. However, there is something cool/dreamy about it but I just can't figure out what :)

hangs in screenshot scene (x1800). which is too bad since the beginning looks much better at home than at the party.

I liked it very much despite the female vocals that decreased the music interrest imho ;) .. it is really slow at times even in 640*480 though.. maybe it's my hardware that gets old already..
