Some good taste here vs some not very, the low resolution floor texture could've used another octave of noise.

Also I'm not sure 8k is the best category for delivering a message (or for anything - but that's a different discussion).

For the marvelous music reminding me Faithless.

Gargaj: thanks for the feedback! Although, I really like 8k category (but yeah - it's a different/longer discussion)

Oh - come on! ;)
I don't see any problems with 8k's.

This is not really much for 8k, but it looks pretty nice - I don't think that this one was about massive sizecoding at all.

Of course.

Simple but nice enough. I really liked the music. Runs a bit slow for me in fullscreen but I still enjoyed it anyway.

no rocks/shells here but I saw it on the stream and it looked very nice. music is also decent. in the end it is a kinda very boring flyby. but (weak) thumbs up for motivational reasons and not having coder colors! :)

What a fantastically arrogant bullshit. Anything can deliver a message, and this one does it rather spectacularly.

fuck webgl...but thumbs up, it was nice! :)

second Gargaj on the floor texture, but with a thumb ;)

Same here.

numtek/sensenstahl: FF or Chrome? I wonder if its related to the usual problem: Angle vs raw OpenGL. Any error msg in the developer console like "invalid shader"?

what's the message then? there are gun shells on Mars?
added on the 2015-10-04 22:45:12 by Maali Maali
Maali: it will happen eventually;) Colonization, finding resources, then war - the history will repeat itself for sure:P I started working on this before "water on mars" announcement though.

Nice to see you active again tomkh ! :D
Keep it going.. suboceanic was very nice!

Good message, good execution. It's rough around the edges but still, props for making a tinytro with a message!

TomoAlien: thanks! BTW found this "amazing" news today: Perfect weather for airstrikes on Syria.

Ambitious. Good work.

Good work indeed. I like the atmosphere of this and the scene looks good as well.

tomkh: FF here. No error message.
the stones look great.

I wondered the same as Maali, but if the message really boils down to "war sucks", then I find it very banal. The visuals didn't impress either, even for the size.

I like the music and the atmosphere°!

Some more text besides the credits would help to get the message across. In a couple of years few will be able to put it in context.

Pretty good, the geometry is nice looking for a distance field. Nice tricks employed for it (far beyond what I could come up with). Stuff like the low resolution texture and the too obvious details with the noise function are a downer though. It makes the technique way too obvious and distracts attention away from immersion and the actual message. It's ambitious though, glad you went with an actual concept in this small size.

The terrain texture was really painful to look at, rest was nice.

Hmm, no music in my Mozilla's SeaMonkey v2.33.1 web browser. :(

Thanks for "making of", it's always pleasure to read a story behind the demo.

in short: i really like the direction it is going, just more blood next time
do not have to be literally more fluid or stains, only - it is not as dramatic as it could be

a motivational piggy, keep up the good work, sir

The discrepancy between sand and object geometry is jarring. Not only the dune texture but also the whole terrain could have used a layer or two of noise.

That said, I have no problem with delivering 'messages' in any size category, even if this one doesn't really do it for me. Ambition is always good.

No objects here either: only the sand terrain, the pool of blood, and the white flag. Chrome 48.0.2564.116, FF 44.0.2.

The shadows are really weird... and the textures are very obviously just generated noise. Not necessarily a problem to have generated textures or imperfect lighting but those two things were really distracting.

nice enough
