This is our "beta-final" version of the demo. Maybe we will release a real final with all the scenes we had in mind...
Anyway, the demo isn't optimized in any way and was designed to run smoothly on the compo machine. Which was an AMD 2600+ with Radeon 9800 pro.
And check out the first effect with the fluid dynamics.. Kinda cool, huh? ;-)

Hmm... there was few things I liked in this demo: the water effect and the fluid stuff at the beginning. Also music was quite nice.

Then again I rest of the demo lacked design / work. Colors could have been adjusted as few of the effects were very messy and unclear.

Oh, and the random crap which makes it 17.4mb zip is a bit annoying ;)

visually not so good, but music is nice

Vulture: Hehe, that's the party version. We almost missed the dead-line and had to finnish it/pack it in 5 min.
Check out the "beta-final" (or what to call it).
And the water effect should be environment mapped and a texture moving over it, not as the screenshoot above. Hrm, strange.

sorry guys, that's not pretty. :) too long and boring and way too green. the "bigpixeled" motionblur in the beginning was cool though.

ok, let's wait for a smaller one :)

Gargaj: Check out the download link. It's to the "beta-final" version and it's "only" 7.7 Mb...

buzzie: Actually, it is only the metballs we are using from last year, even though the water simulation may look alike it's a much more improved version with more correct physics :-)

And what about the ball simulation? Oh well, it's probably just me being in love in real-time physics :-D

happyh: thx, got it, watched it...

guys, guys, guys... do you EVER watch your demos in different resolutions before you add them as an option? :)) half of the effects are hardly visible.

on the other hand the music was nifty, the code was ok (some nice ideas, and the physics were much better executed than in some other demos... *cough* Dream Equation *cough* :), the design was cheap but it worked out ok... a fair demo i guess :)

Not a good demo, but a nice effort.
Nice Work!

nice music production and decent code.
severe lack of transitions design.
its pretty decent for a party hack...
please do a real demo next time!

Great code even if maybe not looking that good (colors?).
