Amazing prod, bravo guys!
I especially love the work you did on the audio part, that sounds like nothing I've had the change to heard from a Megadrive.
This transparency fx is blowing my mind, too... :)

Wow! Wow! Some stuff are too good for mega drive. I actually don't even know what is realtime and what is animation on cartidge.

Every time I check the prods list I hope to see that blue "S" icon somewhere, especially when the big parties are happening. The demoscene prods for the Mega Drive just keep coming, and this, for sure, is a good one. One ❤️ Love

The music was definitely a highlight of the show. The visuals and effects felt very uneven, although a couple of the offset-effects looked really nice.

Ok this was my last prod on Sega Megadrive.
I thought the platform itself could become a great one for oldschool demos, because it's very just in the fact that it rewards work more than gimmicks or easy cheats.

I put thousands of hours of work in this and all I knew on the platform, I went through a 10hours trip (which wasn't bad it itself) to go to Cologne to demonstrate it in front of the demoscene and I was not rewarded. Gimmicks and huge pixels were.
I also went there to try to socialize / make friends but I'm more proficient in hardware hacking than human contact I guess... I am maybe too shy to enjoy it at its finest.

I will not change my mind on what I want to showcase to the demoscene tho, I will resist and double the work if necessary because that's what usually pays in the end.

In any case I think there's something very wrong in the way voting works these days.

A warm goodbye to the Megadrive.

cool 3d
nice feel overall, feels fresh
the flyby looks like it's compressed with a vq codec, so probably prerendered
more megadrive demos please

A very beautiful demo! 3d landscape parts are highlights for me. No doubt this guy should be rewarded! Whoever is able to do so, please send him doja and blotter. NOW!

It's realtime the 3D landscape?
What a masterpiece! I love that style, some fresh effects I can not figure out how they were made... Wicked music by AceMan! Thumb up for brilliant console prods.

Certainly deserves higher place... well, party-voting then..
rulez added on the 2019-08-21 17:10:38 by kwe kwe
not a very round package aesthetically, but very impressive technically. gligli, very sorry that the voting worked out the way it did, it definitely deserved a top3 placing.

rulez added on the 2019-08-22 21:17:29 by decca decca
@gligli I'm really sorry to hear you're leaving the platform. If it's any consolation, I really appreciated every single MD demo you've coded.

Many demos, while impressive to anyone who's ever coded for the platform, are hindered by the lack strong and cohesive visual direction. People usually go after what they see and hear, without analyzing how tough it was to pull off an effect. Especially if they have no intimate knowledge of the platform.

Lastly, the real votes are here, in the comments. I see only thumbs up and a coup de cœur. I hope that one day you'll change your mind about the platform! ❤

Some very cool effects, some a bit ugly even if technically impressive, good music: overall a thumbs up.

But dude... if you enjoy hacking on a platform, hack on that platform... what does voting in demoparties have to do with it? If on the other hand you don't enjoy it and you're only motivated by people congratulating you for it, you're retarded. Go find yourself some other hobby that you enjoy for the sake of it. What a drama queen....

Nuclear, it's exactly your kind of attitude that is the problem:

ehm, maybe getting the recognition that you deserve? some people put a lot of time, effort, skill and heart into a project so others can enjoy something awesome. and then everybody just pisses on it.

It's great how many people who never created a scene production that takes the same amount of effort are lecturing others how they should deal with this..

i agree with dipswitch about the shortcomings in the art direction but it's nevertheless coherent enough to not take too much away from the enjoyment

and then there's the music, ohhhh the music... so good

Sweet! I wouldn't imagine that tune is coming out of a megadrive. I was watching the youtube, if it runs like that on the real thing the effects must be well optimized. The megadrive is like an A500++ or so?

I am thinking the 3d landscape must be either vector video or heavy precalc. If not I'm retiring from coding :) That rotating earth looked highres and smooth.
