Oh man, this would have been a kickass demo if it wasn't for that flashing dotmatrix overlay. That was more annoying and uglier than Stefan's inbred love child!

Well, maybe not that bad, but the demo would have been awesome without it!

Great explosive right in yar face effects and i love the various rendering stuff. Kickass demo!

I agree, the black&white pixelate postprocessing is killing the demo, you can use it in some parts, but syncing it with the beat kind of destroys everything a bit. Overall is cool tho.

Mmm,. mm,.. overally plus. Not the best Outracks demo, that C64 pixelizing is kinda confusing even though I find it funny, even though it didn't let me to stare the nice shiny surfaces ;). But kool, overall kool even though I still prefer their previous releases..

Some nice effects and music-sync. I did not like the pixelisation though.

Returned to a black desktop at the end of the demo (6600 GT ForceWare 9131 + Win XP). Any idea Duckers? I encountered issues with some of my opengl stuff as well recently when exiting.

IMHO, this is very innovative prod. I don’t even know what to call the simulated digital artifacting and transitional noise, but it’s a really cool effect that for a second made me thing LCD was shot. Furthermore, the music, like the effect, takes the standard techno demo tune and infuses it with a neat, off kilter beat that works beautifully with the demos tight pacing and synchronization.

There have been a bunch of great demos as of late, this is one of the best.

ok, I am _really_ sorry but I have to express an unpopular opinion now: this would be kick ass without that annoying b/w-post-proc.-flashing stuff in it. it destroyed the demo for me _entirely_, ...with which I mean that I never ever tend to watch it again, even if there is pretty good stuff in it. And I can´t hold back that opinion just because of the general outcome of the votings here so far.

Thanks for the comments. Could someone please capture this in a proper format just like the latest ASD-demos?

On one hand, there are some excellent visuals and ideas, but on the other it's so hard to see because of all the flashing and jumping.

Good demo, but like many have said, I think it would have been a better demo without the processing effect all the way through.

demo is simply too short but it perfectly fits that tune! :) BB Image
Caution: Falling rocks. I really liked the pulsing fauna bit.

Cool tune, cool shading, cool effects (except the smoke that looks a bit cheap), and cool final tag line. :)

Well deserved best soundtrack award, and overall superb demo.

Made a Highres Youtube Rip for it:

Less flashing, and it would have been excellent. Still a thumb

Oh shit, forgotten thumb.

Just watched it on my new rig, and it's still as awesome as back then -just that I can see it on full glory. One of my evergreens, and if it's only for three things:
- Irvin tune
- That tree
- You really make greys look awesome
