Mechanic, dark and cold with a strong track and really well done geometry and animation especially. Deserved winner.

Techno demo with all of the pros and cons of a techno demo - I need to watch this with better framerate to truly form an opinion.

Nice! Liked the organic stuff.
rulez added on the 2018-11-25 22:50:12 by numtek numtek
Lovely organic visuals in the first half of the demo. The latter half doesn't do that much for me.

Not so keen on the soundtrack, but it seems to fit with the visuals so .. yay.

not your best demo direction-wise, but it's very good and those organic stuff are gorgeous

More like a random shader compilation than a coherent demo, the ho-hum entry level techno soundtrack doesn't really help either. Still looks good enough for a thumb up, obviously.
rulez added on the 2018-11-26 08:11:37 by break break
A bit slow on my 1060, but still top NOTCH stuff!

I like the full of energy tune, first part specular organics, mechanics with cool dof & motion blurs and the end effect <3. Good flow in general also.

Keep it going!

some shaders in the beginning are more of the disgusting kind imo :p

FUCK!

This is the highest quality in visuals I've seen in the demoscene so far.

Not exactly sure if it's the lighting, the grain, the movement, the crispness or the alltogether. But it looks much more like the stuff I'm finding on vimeo than in realtime.

Stellar performance.

I wonder what demo everybody else in this thread was watching. Or do you have numb eyes? ;)

The usual love for Noby's music inserted here. <3

rulez added on the 2018-11-26 21:17:10 by Virgill Virgill
Those are some disgusting organic shaders... like a journey through a gut. Second half felt a little disconnected from the first, though (but still visually cool). Noby's musical versatility knows no bounds. Proper techno demo.

Sidenote 1: Seems like my trusty ol' 1070 can barely handle the awesomeness, with most scenes running at 30 fps or below. And the Notch loader can't seem to be able to maintain a 16:9 aspect ratio (nor let me manually select it) in fullscreen on a 16:10 display for some reason. :(

Sidenote 2: I think this is already the fourth group name under which you two have released a collaboration. Based on the content, I suppose?

At first it seems kind of one-trick-ponyish but turns out to not be like that at all. A honest-to-god techno demo. Very enjoyable.
The text blurbs in between felt kind of Evangelion-ish. Don't know if it's intended?

Black screen on Win7x64, 16GB, DX11, GTX 1080 8GB. It might be an issue with (the Notch engine's?) device detection. It detects my default display and graphics card, but thinks 4:3 is the aspect ratio and offers only that. My monitor is 16:9. It detects another sound card than the default one, and offers only that.

Awaiting final.
added on the 2018-11-28 22:54:29 by Photon Photon
it only shows 4:3 here too but the demo runs fine in the selected resoltuion (which is 16:10), I guess the aspect ratio box is borked and the reason it crashed for you are elsewhere
added on the 2018-11-28 23:12:50 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
I had the borked aspect ratio selection menu problem as well, but manually selecting the proper ratio worked fine. I think.
(can't guarantee it was honest to god the ratio I asked, but it looked ok)

It didn't even detect my decade old ATI Radeon HD 4870 (512 MB of VRAM) video card in my decade old 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC (6 GB of RAM). :( I had to watch it on YouTube. It was OK and uhh gross.

Wow, uh... Let's say you shouldn't expect any modern demo to run on a graphics card with 512 MB of VRAM. My old 1 GB GTX 560 from 2011 was barely enough to watch the the top PC demos released a year prior. And we've come a long way since.

Thankfully, if you live in any sort of a decent country you can buy a used PC consisting of 2011–2013 era gaming-grade hardware for mere 150–200 bucks, and it will run virtually every PC demo at least somehow, but if you actually want stable 30+ fps in today's high-end demos, aim no lower than GTX 1080 or RTX 2070 with a 4 GHz CPU to match it.
added on the 2018-12-03 00:24:04 by moozooh moozooh
music and visuals are top notch. IMO motion doesn't match the music pace though.

Wicked tune, great looking visuals. Kinda wish the cuts with the head and stuff we're scattered around a bit more.

What hoffman said. The scenes with the person or scheme of the head were the best.
All in all it creates an interesting atmosphere, very cold, mechanic and creepy.

That fleshy surface looks really great. I wish, we could see practical usage of such technique more often. But all other parts in here are like very bland filler, especially terrible music.

Love it, especially the music. Flesh-like surfaces fits my taste. I also really like this short black & white scene with strobo and cube which goes through human head made of particles. Played in a loop many times.
