Never expected to like old school in new days so much! Rather fresh for me! Plausible insects' trajectories prove your kitchen's always crowded with "friends" ;)
Sprites - roxxtas!

Very nice idea, could have been exploited even further!
rulez added on the 2005-03-28 20:16:18 by beavis77 beavis77
It is a very original idea which could be further developed on. I suggest that this intro be nominated for the Scene.org Awards 2005 "Best Effect" category!

it's like a non-oldschool oldschool prod, really bizarre yet great visual impact

THE Idea! I agree with Adok.

This was the highlight of the compos. Very amusing and cute. The background is indeed a bit tacky.

i rather see it awarded for 'best concept' ! awesome, cute and refreshing!
rulez added on the 2005-03-29 12:46:22 by okkie okkie
very cool idea
if there would've been a little more "excitement" in it, this may have ruled the competition
rulez added on the 2005-03-29 12:48:36 by Hopper/SquoQuo Hopper/SquoQuo
Rarely am I interested in PC productions. This is one of those cases. The concept is genius, the realisation is excellent. The way the bugs get in each others way and they run to catch up to where they are supposed to be is just excellent.

All my thumbs are up!

Hey, nice idea ! ( not really appealling, visually speaking, but oh well ! ^^ )

This deserves a big thumb up and at least a crate full of beer. One of the most original, fun and good-looking things I've ever seen during my scene life.
rulez added on the 2005-03-29 21:51:19 by Preacher Preacher
This one needs a "most original concept" nomination! :)
rulez added on the 2005-03-29 21:58:57 by BoyC BoyC

best idea + execution EVER
rulez added on the 2005-03-30 02:13:42 by Gargaj Gargaj
most original intro idea.
most cute.

best of the pc 64k intros.

i rather see something like this than "see how many 3d-scenes and models we can fit in one intro" intros.
added on the 2005-03-30 02:19:48 by nosfe nosfe
fuck!
This is hands-down the most bug-ridden piece of code I've seen! :)
I'm not sure how good it is as far as demos go, but I'm certain that it definitely took me by surprise...
It's so weird, it rules :)
rulez added on the 2005-03-30 02:53:48 by Nuclear Nuclear
owns. Period.
what a nice and new idea - and showed with some extra portion of style.

For sure the thumb-up-idea is refreshing, BUT this is a 32k. And it's content is a clear thumb down. Piggies ;)

original yes, but it looks ugly and the bugs are mostly mess (i could hardly recognize cube)

Most original thing I've seen in a long time. The effects are pretty simple, but still effective.

rulez added on the 2006-01-14 13:01:22 by mizc mizc
incredible idea. the collisions between all the bugs with them nudging eachother around is so cool. and the best part was the bugs forming a cube with the different faces being different bugs and it rotating! brilliant!
rulez added on the 2006-02-22 08:43:39 by blackpawn blackpawn
No thumb up from me ? Absolutely amazing intro, the best one I have seen in a long long time. How the hell do you do this guys ? Crazy, fresh, brilliant.

BB Image: Background, font. When will we see bugtro II? (:
Also, there's o much more potential in the bug idea, than what this demo shows.

Noah, my old mate, the really sad thing is that your comment is oh-so true. I only say "Crass engine 8" :-)

nitro: I actually have plans for a bugtro (kindof) remix, but I have 3 more important projects in my priority list. So you'll have to wait till 2010 at least :-(

The playback routine for the music is....bugged! Completely. It doesnt play parts of the track, the vibrato is off the wall, pitch bend modulations doesnt work properly. The chord tuning is destroyed. It made sense to just leave it as it was, so I never told him XD
