Is it just me or does this lack of wait for retrace makes it unwatchable?
Not going to thumb this doen because it might be my machine.

i have no idea why, but i like it.

In order to get the proper experience I explicitly disabled vsync in the driver.

Awesome ride.

I kinda wish there was an additional alternative version without the "twitching", but even without that... wow, just wow.

Not for me. At first I found the noise to be good looking, but it quickly became tiresome. Good ending though.

Quite a trip! Certainly something I'd watch again, which is more then enough reason for a thumb-up. The music worked great with the visuals IMO, and really enhanced the experience.

Wow, first it runs smooth on my old laptop.
Then, I'd like this to have different scenes.
But it was interesting, and the sudden last scene boosted this up.

A bit too sgeneboetry and nothing too amazing but nice enough, pleasantly fucked up soundtrack

missing epilepsy warning. it's pretty ugly and farts bit and byte sounds. but wtheck... why not?!?

Nice tune, and that's pretty much it.

Holy shit, this demo just blew my mind out the fucking window and back.

The intensity in this is mesmerizing.

The ending is massive, but it's way too stale up to that point. Still quite enjoyable, though.
added on the 2013-09-15 16:41:46 by kusma kusma
A strange blend of influences, starting more traction-like and ending deep in mfx territory.

Overall I feel there's way too much stressful shaking and not enough actual visual impact.

I. Loved. This!

Hardcore. Soundtrack is powerful, the sparse visuals and grainy glitches look great. Could live without the text but it's not that important.

My oh my, it lacked variance for me, too random. I like it though, the Danny Boyle film "Sunshine" came straight to mind for some reason. Good concept and execution and sound engineering.

variance on a common theme I mean.. i think, err my retinas are burnt or smth.

Hmm, based on the comments and screenshot I expected to enjoy it a lot more than what I actually did... Will have to re-watch it a couple of times I guess..
added on the 2013-09-16 20:03:01 by blala blala
Hmm, left me with no idea what to say about it.
I guess i wait for a video and watch again then, as on my ATI HD5870 it just gave me headaches, tearing, v-sync-probs, whatever.
Eyes blown. Ears blown. Mind blown.

Psycho stuff. Normally I don't like this style, but this demo is awesome and brainfucking. And what Optimus said: Because there is no video at the moment, I tried this on my 6 year old Pentium4 with ATI X1950 and it worked great.

I don't have a computer that could capture this in an acceptable resolution (I made it on a laptop). Help in that respect would greatly be appreciated :)

Still waiting for new Preacher demo's with quality like fairytale or Challenger deep. but than longer, better, improved. ;)

If you ever start a religion, I'm going to be your first apostle.

I don't really like the syncing of the first 2 parts, but the soundtrack and the climax turns it into something, my English is not sufficient to praise enough. One of the more interesting pieces of the last years.

Ah, what blala said. I want to watch it at work.
added on the 2013-09-18 21:33:26 by pixtur pixtur
wow i totally didnt expect such a noisy/glitchy style from preacher, the beat cought me totally by surprise.
very interestint direction, almost perfect flow but a bit more variation (in the scenes, not the glitch) would have made it a lot better.

very strog democompo at function, you just have to love all of em.

I have a hard time to make up my mind about this one. Music is really cool and fits well, visuals and sync are quite nice too. However, I found myself bored after a while for some reason.

You've got Bible message right: the book is full of psychedelic and noise :)

Great atmosphere and visuals, but... for my taste it should have featured more scenes. It's just a tad boring in the end.

BLASPHEMY! That this was only 5th place :) Just might be the best demo this year.

a bit too shaky on the visual-side for me (the YT capture confirms it was not my machine)

but boy, what a ride! The intensity in each part and the construction/progression...

great and unique work

For some obscure reasons, I like it. :)
Only one thing, the "random jumping noise" anoys me.
rulez added on the 2013-10-10 14:27:04 by ok3anos ok3anos
excellent! i like the fragile look (object, font) and even the chaotic soundtrack.
among the best releases in 2013, i'd say.
rulez added on the 2013-10-11 11:46:53 by a-move a-move
this is SO SO GOOD!!!!!!! best demo-thing i've seen in a long while. the soundtrack is vinyl-worthy (i would play it!), the visuals and the synch are gorgeous. instant coup de coeure.

Nice effects, but to me it feels like trying to be mfxish or visualicish, and fails. Visuals are too sharp , glitches don't feel random enough and the sync is not good enough.

Very nice stuff, especially the last sounds+visuals
rulez added on the 2013-10-17 10:34:02 by leGend leGend
watched this more than 10 times now.
also checked the youtube video. but it doesn't deliver because of the heavy pixel/color changes, so the sync effect get's somehow lost.
to get the best effect watch it in realtime with vsync on.
