Requires NVIDIA GPU (>=GTX 970), sorry about that. Also no screenmode/monitor selection. This is completely new tool and as usual there was no time for such features. Thanks to all who voted for us.

This felt like a nostalgic reminder of old accelerated Pulse/Sunflower demos. Really weird and really classically demoish in a cool way. It almost feels like an Adapt demo, but without the really oddball psychedelic stuff. And yet it balances precariously between pretty visuals and wistful music, and going absolutely nowhere. Somehow, with all the quality and prettiness, it left me kind of lukewarm. Still, thumbs up for the quality content.

Ahh, Elude wouldn't be Elude if it stopped ranking 2nd...

This prod is enjoyable, with pretty visuals, some very good looking effects and supported by a nice soundtrack. I first thought the golden aesthetic seemed inspired by Deus Ex, but with the final scene with the hand, I'm assuming it's in fact a direct reference?

The one point that I find unsatisfying is how this prod misses its own potential. I'm convinced that without changing any asset or effect at all, and just by reworking the camera and the editing to vary tension, it could have a much stronger impact.

Not that convincing, a tad much scenes thrown together. It`s 🆗

Feels quite dated.
Meh, quite a mess with some good individual bits.

What Zavie said, all the awesome ingredients are there. Really loved the 2D overlays - good stuff <3

a bit boring

This one is nice to look at all the time from the perspective of color choices or an extra graphics. Majority of the effects are interesting abstract ambient stuff too. Elude got a ton of talent and room to grow on the PC platform. Not sure what exactly, but maybe something is missing to drag you further to the experience: more twist/punch in the music, scene transitions, final climax? Still, this one is a nice solid demo.

very nice entry

What other guys said. Lots of potential somehow leaving you lukewarm - where tech jumped onto next level leaving visuals behind. Looking forward to the next one :)

watching it again, I liked the music at the beginning but then, scenes are empty, music repetitive, all sound bad tweaked, I don't like, sorry

I like that soundtrack a lot and some scenes look awesome, but most scenes seem to be cut off all in the middle and none was finished to the end. Sadly you ruined the skyhigh Potential in this. It’s a solid thumb as it is but it could’ve been so much more...

Good stuff all over! but for me music, visuals and overlays are kind of pulling in different directions.

Great work!

Assuming you like constructive criticism: I think the 2nd scene lacks a proper subject that approaches and enters the gate. The way it's shot shows off the volumetric light gloriously, but from a pov of progression it would have helped to have an anchor that passes the gate.

Solid work with great ambience!

Nice demo with a lot of particles also what about Riverwash 2021?

Stylish thing and your best work on PC so far!

Don't get me wrong. Technically seems to be quite good. Imo there's a load of wasted potential here. Basically what zavie and zden said.
- The "core overload" theme. It's good that there's no core. No space ship, no aliens, nobody fleeing to the exits. I like that. You could have left the voice out too for improvement. It adds nothing (or I don't get the reference obviously).
- The colors scheme. The look is sort of washed out. Except for the "ball in the trench" scene where there's some redish stuff that makes it a bit more exciting.
- Music. As people said it is a bit repetitive and just ends. A bit of a tension curve or a climax would have been good.
- First two scenes. The first one was just an abstract blur to me and I agree with r1g8 about the second one.
