must be seen, good job from cncd, amazing speed even on a simple 68030/50 and of course GREAT music from Groo

a defining moment.
stellar music by groo, very much worth watching. shame they ran out of time.. are there *any* perfect demos out there?

the music owns and so does the metal tunnel at the end!.. animating backgrounds is also a nice idea. Not often one sees a demo which grabs you by the mouth as much as this one does..

Cool music and some great new effects (at least in 1995).

what? no comment yet? *bitchslapsownass*

pretty much a classic demo with cool '95/'96-style effects, great graphics and a soundtrack that just doesn't want to let go.
rulezadded on the 2004-07-26 11:13:09 by gloom gloom
Wow ... even though I haven't seen it for years I still bow to this 3D object this CNCD production ist starting off with. It kicked (my) ass back then. And still does today, I guess ...

Gotta unleash it again on my A1200 by time.

too bad the vid is so damn bad, but i think it's a great prod! i couldn't judge if the jerky animation was something in the original or in my codec..
would love to see it running on a real machine some day!

Andromeda's Nexus 7 at TP94 was the climax in "oldschool demos"; CNCD's Closer at TP95 was the opener for the newschool rising. Brilliant!

Massive on the big screen but it looks quite ugly. Some good new effects (as of 1995) but no thumb up from me.

Can't say i've ever liked this one. I'm sure there's some impressive code in there, but as a demo it just doesn't tickle my fancy.

have mixed feelings about it (too dark, music not to my likings), but can't deny it's overall quality, so thumb up.
