i've heard the 3d part with the tree is an animation. i only voted this one 'cause of that part. blame them :(
added on the 2001-04-23 19:06:57 by PigPen PigPen
its not a real animation tho.. its alot of fun going on in the background ;p
(what i know they have irl sex behind the tree for instance)
added on the 2001-04-23 19:21:19 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
Yep, the tree is an animation, but actually the realtime unpacking routine is some rather nifty work in itself (atleast it seemed that way when Kalms explained it :) ).
All in all a very nice demo.

We were kind of hoping that people would appreciate other parts of the demo too, such as the forest zoomer and the shadowcasting balls.
At least the Polish crowd yelled "Animation" at the wrong part of the demo :)
8MB diskspace is a PITA when doing those zooms, by the way - we had to cut down a lot on the lighting information in the forest zoomer :/

i was lucky to see it at the party... 060 - ouch!! 3D stuff and great stuff too! the fish... ummm i love fishes! and the tree... animation? who cares! 320x200 looks great on amiga still! i just wonder when i will be able to see it next time?

With this demo, The Black Lotus are getting almost as good as the old TBL was in 1996-1997 (captured dreams, tint). I think the demo lacks a bit of energy. But they are getting very close to the top again. Awesome visuals, fab code and good music. It's so wonderfull to have the masters on Amiga again. Keep those corckers coming, TBL!
rulezadded on the 2001-10-06 11:10:44 by z5 z5
starts really nice, but kinda loses power afterwards.. nice one still. shame about the animation part. 8)

The music is really good, and the demo is also decent..

Sort of liked it, but didn't found it so imppressive to justify all the hype that was given to this production
added on the 2002-02-23 11:32:26 by mac mac
I guess the hype is about the smoothly animated objects on a 'standard' 060-AGA Amiga :)
I like it very much, it's very good technically.
rulezadded on the 2002-06-04 00:31:36 by Scali Scali
quite nice. too poppy for me though.

Awesome roto-fractal-zoomer ;)
rulezadded on the 2002-08-28 09:10:17 by Pyxis Pyxis
30 Mb video file
start part is not interesting
infinite zoom is hard to do, so respect to the gfxman :)
arg, the big fish is a mutant!
animation is good, but it becomes quickly boring
no cohenrency between the parts
music is mediocre
infinite fractal zoomer is fast but it takes too much time
and there is no transitions between parts
so, an ok prod for me
IMHO better than "Little Nell".
Little Nell sucks ;-)

rulezadded on the 2004-10-25 20:32:59 by ghandy ghandy
... no, this one doesn't appeal much to me, really. a weird combination of sequences not connected and neutral to each other. but since i love TBL i'll spend a piggy on this one ...

nice demo, but i think it could be even better with more time to code on. i always miss the mirrow object in the beginning. maybe it was ment to be like this but i always expect a mirrored object in the mirrow. :)

Besides the A - Ni - Mazja issue that rose after this release. It flattened me back then at the party place. The soundtrack is ace.

One of the less impressive TBL demos imo. Most scenes look ok, some pretty damn good and some just outright ugly. Deisgn isn't really there at all and the music sucks imo.
