This one is off tha hook!... jaw dropping full frame effects..and 3 selectable kick-ass tunes... with the fx still in-sync..Dane still some how manage to squeez some fresh sound out of the MOS-6581. Thank you for this wonderfull experience.

btw: what happend to the side borders? :D

oh my f***k.. It's scary how much the c64 demos has evolved in the last couple of years. When will it end? Hopefully never because it's so darn nice too watch a demo that feels like a punch in the face! Amazing!

Didn't expect I'd ever put a thumbs up below a C64 prod again, but this surprised me bigtime. Awesome, adorable work.

The most unique, artistical, designed C64 demo I have ever seen!!! Gfx and music are great! And all the effects are preety nice to watch too. Plasmas have done before but now with more colors and a logo in front. Rubber bars were very cool. My favoritest are the textures (finally with some big nice gfx!) and then the vector thingy. But the great stuff, is 3 musics, design, syncing, graphics. I watch it mostly with the 1st and the 2nd music. 1st seems to sync more and with better feeling with the transitions that show or make dissapear the gfx/colors. 2nd music seems to sync/change feeling exactly when the lyrics start to play, great feelings! 3rd seems to be something in beetween but not so hot. And the demo cycles too! I could let it play and play and play in a show forever!!! Finally a C64 demo that makes me horny again =)))

What i like best is the rubber (or whatever) effect in the beginning. The design is awesome all the way through. One of the best demos ever!
rulez added on the 2004-03-03 18:45:00 by cyb cyb
Absolutely flabbergasting!! The optimum fuckup thingy rocks and so does the twister. Nice transparency touches aswell.. And big up for the great use of pictures and other design elements! Must have been hell on earth to put this together....

good demo
rulez added on the 2004-03-03 21:53:18 by shadez shadez
everything has been said already. i'm pretty impressed, it's really fresh - nice to see that dane's helping out bd keeping up doing nice releases. the musick selector is a great invention, it makes you check the demo at least 3 times.

btw, too bad the tunes itself don't go along nice with eachother, else it's superfun checking the demo on 3 c64s simultaneously :)
rulez added on the 2004-03-04 12:42:01 by dalezr dalezr
Great stuff, HCL RULES!

Such nice gfx, design and code. The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't MORE, a second disk side would have been nice! :)

Go Sweden!
rulez added on the 2004-03-04 14:05:02 by Sdw Sdw
Heh, the demo only takes about 400 blocks with all 3 tunes. Had there only been more time...
added on the 2004-03-04 14:54:08 by Dane Dane
dalezy: i wouldn't call it an "invention", exactly.

it didn't blow me away, but i do admire the multi-speed music. and you get a little musicdisk of more, to boot. the gfx give it atmosphere and more of an amiga/pc feel. the twister at the beginning is a very clever stretching illusion. dane and hcl definitely make a good team, hope to see more when hcl gets back!

Slick, gorgeous, neat, what is there not to like from this burner apart from a slight discrepancy in the original-artwork-department? ......... Actually, nothing, zip, nada, zerosville. Go HCL! Go Dane! Go Jailbird! Go Booze Design!

Nice trick to include 3 soundtracks, it "forces" people to watch it 3 times in a row (which is definately not a burden in this case :-) The 2nd soundtrack is the best IMHO and the rest of the demo is... simply amazing...
