Such a wonderful production by quite some of my friends. Enjoyed every bit of it!

I really enjoyed this. It takes effort to make plasma like effects look good in 2023 and this demo definitely does that!

Really nice art, presentation and effects

Good to see NGC back on screen (with Viper and Soundy). I hope it's the first of other great prods.

really nice prod! Tons of different fx and kudos to fit a song with vocals on a single disk!

Really enjoyed this one live. Wish it placed higher...

Superb demo. This one and "The Loop" are my two favorites. How can these two demos only be placed on rank 5 and 6? They run on 512kb/512kb A500 machines, show great effects and have great music.

Though the others all earned teir place, i also would liked this in a higher Rank.
The sound really nails it.

Really nice.

This amazing demo is a masterpiece of design. The flow is incredible.
Just look at how well each part is done. For instance, the part of the lines waving over the book: Simple effect -you may think- but not everyone choose the colors so well to fit the palette of the graphic and still maintain the illusion of motion blur.

Add these transitions, the energetic music, the little details in every part...

Hats off! You guys are wizards!

This demo being ranked 6th in the demo compo is a complete non-sense to me...
Amazing audio & visuals !!

This production should rank a few places higher.

great graphics, music and theme. not a big fan of the antialiased hiciolor plasma looking parts though

Groovy as hell. Love the colorful plasma bits too.

Very enjoyable!

In other years (excluding the 2019 mayhem) this would've been up somewhere on the pedestal. Reading the "should've ranked higher" comments let me take a peek at the results, and they are quite literally only nudges of points apart starting from 6th place. So, tight race but such is life.
Top notch production in the heap of the Virgill-festival this Easter :D

Super demo with massive production values in all departments, and the code hits many aesthetically pleasing registers with grandeur. Some parts left me baffled about what's going on here, definitely needs more rewatches.
rulez added on the 2023-04-11 12:33:06 by bifat bifat
And the music is awesome!
rulez added on the 2023-04-11 12:38:11 by d vibe d vibe
Just great.
rulez added on the 2023-04-11 12:50:55 by grip grip
You know that it must have been an outstanding compo when great stuff like this "only" ranks 6th. Presented in a good mood, great effects and graphics, a nice flow, all held together by an awesome soundtrack, Virgill's days must have 48 hours, else I dunno.

Many thanks for the great feedback!
As you noticed the music contains lots of lyrics. These are ADPCM compressed (nearly 400kb of music in a 1 disk demo) and we stream and decompress them in real-time while the FX run. Anyways, here are the lyrics of Virgill's fantastic song:
I was just a kid when I first saw the light
The Amiga demoscene was my guiding light
Chaos and Sanity, they played their game
Arte was the demo that put them to fame
Laxity and Kefrens, they took us to the stars
Desert Dream was the demo that left us in awe
Leonard and Oxygene, they took us back in time
We Were was the demo that blew our mind
Gengis and Complex, they showed us the way
Real was the demo that made us stay

Some chunky effects are at a bit low resolution for my taste, still a very good OCS demo.

That music is really cool! Also stunning graphics!

I felt this blazed past my eyes in the compo with rapid fire effects. I need to do an extra round to get more clarity on what was going on. Certainly thumbworthy!

Great OCS demo and awesome, let's say, oldskool soundtrack! Reminds me of a bit to the Contex Digi-Demos on C64.

As an old fan of Animatunes and Artificial paradise, this new amiga NGC prod made my day!

Nice surprise from my good friend Soundy!!

Some nice parts here, a good "story" and flow, and an awesome soundtrack too!!

Well done! Should perhaps have placed higher in the rankings!

That is the demo with the coolest music since ages. Not to mention the great fx. Well done, guys! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Cool music, great flow and fresh ideas. Underrated in the compo!

Some really good effects. It's the type of demo I will watch again from time to time because of that.
Nice soundtrack and graphics as well.

Awesome production, I love the sound so much....

Nice theme and a very cool credits part ! (but I hate these large chunky effects on OCS even if these, I must say look better than usual :)).
rulez added on the 2023-04-22 17:21:48 by Fafa Fafa
The opening sequence has instant appeal to me and already secures the thumb. Going on, I can't decide if that textroutine was designed that way or it was buggy and they just left it in because it looks sort of ok.

I especially enjoyed the twister part with gfx and rising pixels, and the book part with the bendy lines. A few glitches here and there are not enough to ruin the good impression.

That is so cool! Awesome production!

Good demo, there could be more of that nice gfx, when you have such names aboard ;)

Very good on all fronts. Lots of different and interesting effects, good music that reminds me of Kraftwerk and nice graphics as well. The opening effect is my favourite, it really looks awesome.

Lovely, great sounding and aesthetic.
