ok, some background information: this intro was made the night before the deadline .. 'dead horse' is the (not so) secret nick of one of our musicians .. which later was dead frequency .. so .. well. there ya go. ;) (the 'excess style' points to excess - amoeba (the invert-style demo)) .. the music always reminds me of metroid, btw :-)

The colors weren't bad, but the rest, uh... Especially the flashing thing just didn't work.

huh? it ain't that bad as you guys pretend. of course, nothing extraordinary, but i've seen worse. synching is a bit chaotic.

I actually like intros/demos where there isn't a lot of fancy graphics but this is maybe going a bit too far:) Synching didn't fit well, except for the greetings, which were funny, but not good-looking. All in all, nothing you would remember here.

Oh, COME ON guys... don't you own any sense of humor at ALL!!??? This is a production made in about 16 hours, meant to partially be FUN, and bright people have probably figure out which 3 productions referred to in this thing. Stop being so bloody serious...

the tune was kinda cozy but the rest of the intro was bad.

there is absolutly nothing wrong about this very simple intro except for the name. but i guess this is a cheap way of getting some undeserved attention.

i know what crap looks like. this is smooth and simple. but other programmers might manage to make even something as simple as this look like crap.

simple is not crap, just simple. the scene would be less fun if it was forbidden to release simple stuff just because you could as well release demos that take 6 month to create.

(this is especially a problem for people who usually do 6 month stuff and want to do something simple now and then.)

next time anti-aliased fonts please. and a unique name!

apart from the name, though i know the story about it now, i find if good. the fonts are too plain, the rest is cute. nice tune too.

kvasigen -- we're in it for the fun.

chaos: thanks for not pissing on us noobs :)

I'd (on behalf on Snillfisk aswell;) ) like to thank you, chaos, for more or less defending simpler releases (like ours;) ). And I want to add... we weren't really trying to get attention... we just wanted to have some fun with some of the more known prods out there. And as also stated, Dead Horse was the former handle of one of our musicians, so the idea was just TOO great to let go.. we thought. :) The scene is all about having fun, aye?

chaos; sorry if the name bothered you, it was (as slc said) just a too good thing to let go. It was created for solskogen, one of the few real norwegian demopartys, so we created it just for the fun of it. i'm the one responsible for the code - and to just get that point of the question - i'm NOT a good coder :-). The name was not chosen to get attention, for all I care it could just have disapperaed after the compo was shown, but hey, it ended up here.

Thanks to everyone bashing us, its good to know that you're out there :-)

Hmm... I quite liked the shading on those translucent triangles. Overall, a nice intro.
When will "don't flog the dead horse" come out? ;-)

i actually like this intro, it reminds me of early tpolm, f.x netty

stop taking everything so seriously :)

Reading comments like these make me quite sad.
Dammit, bashing people down like that...
It's not nearly as 'bad' as you all make it out to be...
Actually I sort of liked it, but that's not the point.
If you all thumbs down a prod, please tell WHY you do so,
instead of just saying comments like 'This sucks'.

Yeah, like those comments really help, and make people feel just great.

The colors are kinda nice, the music needed some sort of beat. If it had that, the flashes could possibly look good, cause now they don't. Also, the name was unfortunate since most sceners don't know or get the inside joke. But it's 40K, it's got sync...

this is sweet.
fuckin' great music =)

It's good to occationally watch a demo that doesn't try to blow your mind off with its contents :-)
