3rd annual Intel Demo Competition

category: general [glöplog]
The flv quality isn't really good for judging, but I think it was very groovy, had a really nice flow and had a weird and interesting concept, not to mention an unified theme, behind it. It also connected to a lot of demos in my mind (significant deformation near the cranium comes into mind, as well as some old French demos from the Nineties whose names I cannot recall) which gave it some sort of depth, the graphics were top class and the music had an unbelievably groovy beat.

So yeah. I really did like it.

yeah cool compo, I think even better than last year (who was that guy who said last year that it was all half-arsed and we got the free hardware but delivered a very disappointing set of productions). I can draw the parallels:

halfsome -> new demo from Fairlight/TBL. Similar style, even some objects
iso9423 -> new demo from still. I haven't seen it but I bet it will have a similar vibe
eryx -> mfx , the alternative one
hofn -> inque, slow moving 3D, calm shaders

which leaves

royal temple ball -> cocoon. well, maybe..

Very nice demo from FLT and TBL... Maybe a bit too slow.

Mfx's one : good in many aspects : I really wonder How u did some effect but i don't really like the music

mfx: I can't understand if the video artifcats I get are part of the demo or not but it looks great :D

I love mfx's tune. Is like a more minimalist/techno version of Justice style. <3<3 Nice one 1in10!

The Inque demo looked pretty decent to me but is possibly dwarfed by the other demos which all look exceptional.
Fuck, fuck, fuck... This is the most awesome competition I have contributed to so far. Oh my fucking goodness... This is... this is.... this too much... I will crawl back into my cave and continue to work on my Telekom stuff.

I WANT the executables! Or wait, do I really?

Maybe it's to that bad that they disqualified us for insufficient quality...

Disqualified for insufficient quality? assholes...

can we still see the demo?

i think (hope :) that was a 'thinking pessimistically aloud' comment... Maybe they're still encoding the still demo and started uploading the others before it was ready.

If that's the case, it sure is taking them long..

Maybe is too good that they want earn money from it. So, you'll have to pay to watch it ;)

A new file has appeared - 'seeker'. Guess it's the still demo \o/

behold...the passenger pigeons are hard at work uploading again.
