Like the music and the greetings text effect, and that strange typography. Some whirly effect, but not much in terms of technical though.

i've expected way more.
but then again, it's quite okay in comparison to other demos within the competition. extra point for the title!

Yay, scenepoetry. Nice music, typography and coder colours though. Thumb up for not including the usual boing ball bullshit.

It's kind of sad when the definitely best part of the demo is typography in the overlaid scenepoetry. Then again, it was fun to watch.

At first I liked it well enough, but on second thought, it all looks rather undercooked and tired. Music's actually way better than the mostly bland visuals.

Great music, good visuals, decent scene poetry, overall just good fun! Way more, than I expected.

Very nice music and distorter effects on steroids look good, some more content and it would have been very solid demo in the retro stylistic.

it wasnt bad, but it wasnt really new either. felt abit stuck in the nineties. but thumb up for the comeback, atleast they are doing demos again. may the next one rock some socks.

The music was good but everything else seemed a bit bare. There were whole scenes with just that kaleidoscope background effect going on. I guess it was made in a hurry. Also it's a bit rich not to greet neuro in your greets part that very closely resembles their demo.

Great demo.

Insectecutor: To be fair, that effect was used in (probably literally) millions of youtube videos before. :)

I have never watched any neuro demo and I did that greets effect. True, it's inspired from millions of youtube videos with the same style. Also true demo is just bare and uncooked, it was really rushed together in the last night before the compo.. I would say 80% done at the party place, except the music which I have been sitting on for more than 2 years.

Really nothing special here from the Oldrapers but the Soundtrack rocks the shit out of most other demos' sountracks of this years Assembly! btw... ftw 47 MB for this? :) Please provide an MP3 of the soundtrack. Thanks in advance.

Mikron you dirty olde self voter, the greets fx looked brilliant, only problem was no greets for us .)

anyway very very good demo! Nice to see byterapers and doomsday back in co-op prod!
rulez added on the 2012-08-06 14:33:18 by deepr deepr
Supah! Like the drive and high tempo. Music is also ace. Some of the best I've seen from Byterapers...fow showe! :)

Isn't it weird that Boost, a demo you did 15 years ago, is better than this one in every aspect?

I love the black ribbon over orange background effect.

The image distortion and multiple overlays would have looked awesome in low-res, in 1280x720 they look rather cheesy. All in all enjoyable I guess.

We just noticed that there's over 25 MB of extra content/data which is not used at all in the demo. It was put together really fast and in a hurry with organizers breathing heavily to our neck. Real size would be ~22MB but .. who cares :)

nice 90's vibe, but doesn't deverve such a high place

there is no depth in the music and most effects look generic, oink

ltk_tscc: you can get the music from http://byproductmusic.net

This was actually the first track I've gotten into a big democompo, so I'm happy to see such a (mainly) positive response. ^^

Could've been so much better. Though this is still better than the previous "Byterapers" demos of late. (Mr. Sex needs to do a comeback, kthx.)

Thumbs up for the track, but the overall demo is meh.

oh dear. the kinetic typo was a fun example of "we saw something like this and thought it was cool but we have no idea how to do it properly". other than that, it's basically table effects.
added on the 2012-08-22 18:04:29 by Gargaj Gargaj
not bad but not amazing
that was one terrible 2d effect, dear lord
the rest was, well, generic.
