Nice glow-layer effects, and a cool 3dobjects look
added on the 2000-08-23 06:20:37 by r3D^rgba r3D^rgba
The whole thing made me feel like I was locked in a metal box in a factory downtown...creepy, noisy, yet very organic. Without a doubt one of the coolest ambient demos.

Combines conceptual objects and wonderfull graphics on a sweet music. great work.
added on the 2000-12-15 19:11:48 by FirEdge FirEdge
One of the best DOS-Demos ever. Effects, graphics and the ambient music are great and fit perfectly together. This demo is simply a must-have.

Is this the Sunflowerish style as they call it?

I think that the first time I had seen this demo I forgot it, but then I heard about this demo very much and wanted to see it again..

The next time I started to like it a little..

Usually I don't understand that much Abstract Stylish Demotrends (Either Wireframe, or Sunflowerish, or other..)
Perhaps I have to see that again and again. Perhaps oneday I will like these very much :)

Sometimes I start to like "sucking demotrends" a little..

Who knows..

Q. "Does a something like an ambient demo exist?"
A. "Go and download 73ms."

A really nice demo. Good work.

Creepy ambient music, lots of good gfx and original effects. The design is very good as well, the music helps it alot.

Perhaps my favourite Pulse demo. Absolutely amazing atmosphere, sound and vision merges together so well that you might forget it's "just" a demo.
rulezadded on the 2002-01-14 16:37:01 by melw melw
excellent atmosphere indeed, (music+gfx go very well together) and those layers of clouds are playing tricks with your eyes..

vote. =)

failed to mention this: back then I was seriously wondering where the transition between pixels was. It was so blurry that even for a 16-bit experinece it was resolution-free to me ;)

I love the pulse style. I think this demo showed the new style Sunflower was going to adopt. Really, really nice

Watch this demo and you'll know why demos are also an art form. Very impressing!

Here are some video clips (SVCD and VCD quality). The demo won't be on the DemoDVD, but these were made as a favor to Unreal.

phoenix: is the server located somewhere ukraine on a unstable dialup? (i.e. it's slow as hell).
It's in the U.S., not Ukraine :). But yeah, there will be a mirror (in Norway, I believe) and we'll announce it once it's official. Bug Trixter if you'd like to speed things up a bit. We'll gladly take any FTP mirror offers! (see the Jun 26 news entry on www.demodvd.org)

I watched this demo on Gravity'98 and although I voted for "Suita futura" as the first place, but now, if only I could repeat my voting, I would give it first place.

watching it, I can't help but feel that some of the bits would be ruined by a win32 port... also the green section rules.
nice effects but feels like unfinished or combined in as hurry from perfectly coded parts

I watched it again and it has very good effects for my Pentium. You know, it's the things you see when you got used to simple screens, where you can't see the effects but they are still there. I mean,. about my comment back then in the times. Ok,. maybe it's ambient, it's slow, it's not catchy, but the code and looks are great!
