bunch of scene in there i really liked
rulezadded on the 2006-08-06 02:35:08 by blackpawn blackpawn
I liked it, a bit weird at the start with something that seemed like a messup with the camera and stuff, but it won't stop me from thumbing it up.

some great visuals but it crashs after a while... give me a final version and i´ll give you a thumb up ;-)

I really like the music in it, the gas effect and teh robotz. Best portal process demo so far! "Telos" means "end" in greek, does that mean that this is the last demo from PP or is it just my idea? :)
rulezadded on the 2006-08-06 04:26:30 by Optimus Optimus
Maybe no the best from portal process. BUT, the "smoke on a fishtank" got me alright. Music is great too.

lots of very strong bits in here.. lovely well rounded thing

some good parts (robot-tree)
some ugly parts (begining with glow+noise)
nothing bad but nothing new :\

Here's hoping the final version will be out soon... It shows a lot of promise, but several parts are clearly unfinished.

btw, the nfo says it's called 'talos', but the filename is 'telos'... which one is right?

Quite to windows with an error message after the "grey-growing-robot-tree"-part.
Btw. somehow the music at that part reminds me of one of the tunes from "Vivid Experiment/Doomsday" (which is a good thing!)

It fucks up in the middle of the demo... but what I've seen rocked my world again! Portal Process guys... please fix that demo to run 100%... I have a GForce6600 - 256MB, 1GB Ram, WinXP.
rulezadded on the 2006-08-06 18:31:57 by ltk_tscc ltk_tscc
looks like an unfinished party version, and a undisputed Portal Process demo :D
rulezadded on the 2006-08-06 18:37:18 by Zest Zest
Works perfectly here (r9800 xpsp1) but someone should inform these peeps that re-doing the same demo over & over again have nothing to do with having a style.

I rather like this, though I'll wait for the final version before forming a real opinion..
added on the 2006-08-06 23:29:33 by Preacher Preacher
a strange mix of very ugly and very beautiful scenes. deserves a thumb anyway
rulezadded on the 2006-08-06 23:46:53 by prm prm
It's missing something - maybe something new? There's only so much robots, glow and grain filter you can do before it becomes repetitive. The smoke-sim was cool though :)

Crashed in the same place for me.. GF 6600GT 256, 1G ram, P4 3.2ghz. I liked what I did see, I'll wait for the final.

final version is needed! Anyway impressive scenes in it! music really ownz

Grey and dirty yellow - "Kasparov" inspirated? Green brings life to the demo, so thumb up. Gas and cyan animated object with breakbeat music rox.

In my opinion it runs too slow on my GeForce 6600 , but a nice demo anyway => thumb up.

very mixed bag. some cool scenes, but also some that looked extremely unfinished. soundtrack was cool, but still, piggy.

tel·os Audio pronunciation of "telos" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (tls, tls)

1) The end of a goal-oriented process.

2) End

1. termination, the limit at which a thing ceases to be (always of the end of some act or state, but not of the end of a period of time)
2. the end
1. the last in any succession or series
2. eternal
3. that by which a thing is finished, its close, issue
4. the end to which all things relate, the aim, purpose

think of it as you wish. one thing is clear though - there WILL be a final of this demo. :)

This suffered SO badly from the lumens or whatever those things are that the projector has (: But the glass box with the ... gas? That rules. And no, I don't think I have seen that before. Not in a demo.
There's gas in a box at least in two Faktory's Feed Your Machine.

Good but crashed after the btrees on AMD64 GForce6600 256MB.

Really nice, but crashes here too (Core Duo, GF Go 7600 512MB). Saw it live, though.

Some very nice and some very ugly parts. Overall looked very unfinished.
added on the 2006-08-10 21:51:10 by dairos dairos
a superb demo that could have had winning potential, if finished properly. the soundtrack rules, especially the oldschool part. hoping for a strong final version.

same crash here, too (GeForce 6600, Forceware 84.21)

archetypal Portal Process design. It's a good product again.

Love the Soundtrack, some good, some weak scenes, but deserves of course a nearly full thumb up :)
rulezadded on the 2006-08-25 15:23:23 by SaphirJD SaphirJD
A lot of promising but very dull and unfinished scenes in there, and also crashes at the tree part. I'll reserve my thumb for later.

if you're going to have a launch dialog, do your prereq checks there, not after launching the demo....

rulezadded on the 2007-07-01 01:53:40 by Zplex Zplex
The beginning was so-so, but there were some very nice parts like the mechanical robo-limbs, and the great soundtrack. The smoke was pretty neat too. Unfortunately, it seems as if the demo could have been so much more.
rulezadded on the 2007-07-01 05:38:42 by Nezbie Nezbie
Seems a bit rushed, and some unfinished parts. Massive 3D-work, good color work and a excellent soundtrack makes this worth a thumb up!

Typical Portal Process: 3d flybys with abstract robotic things and shadow volumes.
Works with the music and the fog box and all, so thumbs up.

i don't know. feels very empty for me. it looks and sounds nice, so piggie.
Rather simple, blackbackgroundsyndrome(tm), and probably the worst soundtrack gloom has ever made. Some nice visuals here but overall it's just way too cliched and childish even for my taste.
