- Why does it need a 193mb .dat file ?
- ends all of the sudden (was amazed by the quality of the scenes, still sucked in..)
- nah is missing in the greetz (only kolor ;)

can you guys, as a team, do another one please? This is just great Cheers!

Quite decent. Next time just let supadupa take care of the graphics and design side by himself though. He clearly wasn't able to give his best output here. Also your chromabs are horrible.

I expected a little bit more. Igor is really into that shading stuff, I know this. But zero innovation and only one interesting visual idea. Could be better if it comes to art direction.

Even though I already know the effects as it is made technically great. but I lack the entertainment value. The demo has nothing motivates me to see it several times.

Not exactly a demo of the year but still watchable. Runs pretty fast on 2560x1440 @gtx-555 SLI until it crashes with "engine something something.dll something". Piggy then.

Pretty good stuff! A little clean-looking, and some scenes worked better than others (the cut object in half with slime inside was great!). Had to run it at a low resolution though, because I kept getting this error in higher res:

Really great production. High quality rendering, nice effects and really strong music to tie it all together. The 2d artwork is also fantastic. Whole production reminds me of a classic megademo.

I do have to say that I really dislike that chromatic aberration. It is way too strong and distracting. Maybe just dial back the amount it shifts. Honestly the only thing I can fault so I have to mention it.

Great production. Clean scenes with cool effects, great soundtrack, beautiful fullscreen gfx (that could have been shown a little longer) make this a ride to enjoy!
And on top of it, it makes the TOP 10 of the worst demonames ever with ease. I almost would bet Virgill came up with that. So stupid :)

Some of the scenes look too 'clinical'. The still graphics and the music are fantastic though. Overall clearly the best demo in the compo.

Nice to see a proper effects show. The presentation is kind of unimaginative to my eyes, because it feels sterile, but the content is top notch.

Very nice effects.
The gamer-gothic funeral techno music and the overall mood with the bland dark industrial waste colors and massive wannabe camera work are somewhere between depressing and pathetic. Life is shit, let's have a bad time!? I don't get it. Do you actually like this kind of mood, or are you trying to imitate some supposedly popular style?
I liked the music sync flash thingies a lot.

Nice gooey things. Superb 2D graphics (a rarity in demos these days). Shiny rendering. But the direction seems a bit half-assed; e.g., a quiet flyby scene of a pool with the music building up and up without anything happening, save for a screen distortion effect that seems completely unmotivated.

It's nice to see a demo well put together and not too demanding in horse power. My only criticism, content-wise, would be the lack of either normal mapping, texturing, or some sort of AO, which makes some of the scene look a bit bland. On the other hand, the blob shapes were pretty cool, especially the sliced gum rock. I also like the oldschool style with 2d artworks, although I'd recommend to watch You Should and see how they made it more vivid.

Sadly it crashed immediately at the ground circular screen scene.
BB Image
It was running at native resolution at 1920x1200. At 1920x1080, the image was distorted (my screen has a 1.6 aspect ratio). When I tried 1400x900, the glow was not aligned correctly with the rest of the image.

Piggy until a final version fixes the blocking issues.

very demo-ish demo. great demo in itself in all aspects, but could have been even more so with better editing/camera and generally more polish. could have become a new classic, but there are just too many rough edges. so close!

Some pieces are really beautiful but some things are really bothering me:
- there is no color contrast in the demo, all scenes are almost completely desaturated
- everything looks terribly clean and smooth, almost like all the details got filtered away
- the presentation is really boring: fade in, rotate, fade out. even in the few moments where the music rises
- the scene design is unimaginative and empty
- there is absolutely no central theme or anything combining the scenes
