One of my favorite demo this year, perhaps the one I've been watching the most
so far, it features: randomly generated vector effects (in the beginning) which
gives a quite eerie feeling to the demo (together with dune's soundtrack), and
mostly an old (but very fast) tunnel effect + variations. The rest is done
by all the synchronizations between the effect code and the music. yes,
psychedelic is the word :)

awesome comeback of the tpolm massive.
thumbs up for reiska's kod, antti's typogrlaphly and lassi's beats.
awesome syncs.

everything said above is true however, you've got to get it to find out whether you can believe me!
one of those demos i watch every morning when having my breakfast. it's soo cool. some kinda transcendental rythm

Good style.
This demo is very good.

Amazing what people can do with a boring thing like the old tunnel effect.

Amazing. I play this baby a lot (even under Win2k, where it hangs miserably). It should, however, have an epilepsy warning :)

Music from BrothomStates is really very cool. good synchros...
fast and furious ride into deep tuunels of tpolm's wicked coolective id. if it only had a bit more variety and a bit more than 1 (or 2) textures.. 8]

yes the demo is nice, all in all, especially the way the motherfuckinggiraffee & co messages appear and these lines too not to mention this nice synchro but... music just kicks at the beginning, as it isnt anything special nor technically stunning, it gets boring and so does the demo.

"the square tunnel perfectly synced with the tune is definitely not an old fashioned effect"

the tpolm guys have style, in a way 3state, replay, purple or whoever could only dream of.

tpolm managed to make something fantastic out of three stupid effects we've all seen fiftythousand times before already.

The beginning and end fx are pretty nice and atmospheric but everything else is simply average. Also the tune isn't anything special...
added on the 2001-12-07 00:25:23 by uncle-x uncle-x
Just because it's a TPOLM prod, it doesn't have to be good.

Starts nice, but the whole thing gets damn boring after 30 seconds and annoying after another 20 seconds.

i just love the soundtrack!
and somehow that tunnel effect is just brilliant, even though the effect and the use of it are kinda cliches, they don't really feel like it. i just love that scene.

added on the 2002-04-25 13:30:27 by Inopia Inopia
This really sucks. Sure, some of the synching in the tunnel seem to have been worked on, and they are pretty nice. But that doesn't change the fact that the rest is complete and utter crap!

It would have been better if they replaced those texts with textures, so they didn't have to use the same all the time... Tho it wouldn't have been much better anyways...

Sofokles: Why would I even care if I was added to any of your imagined lists? And if this demo express anything it must be a terrible headache, and that you can get by banging your head into a wall, and that experince will be REAL.... do you understand my point? or are you just one of those retarded persons? (btw, I don't like being threatened... especially by a loser like you)

no, sorry. I don't.

Anyway: nevermind.

But, I'm terribly (really) sorry for not being clear enough about that adding you to a deathwish-list was actually... well, a joke. Sorry if it caused any confusion for a while there.

Ok, I've just found this lost thumb.
The track Rulez, the sw rendering / colorscheme / textures have a nice rubbish feeling.

I can't understand what is that sort of yellow doll/man near the end (maybe it's just nonsense like the oh-so-famous sentence in the screenshot).

Had my attention directly with the interesting figures and colour selection.

After a short while however it got so "wild" I thought they are overdoing it. Yet from wild it went to even more wild and so became good again.

Very short though as it ended nor very long after that part of the demo.
