TUM offered a lot to read (Pain #59, SCEEN #2) and even this demo tells a story. And it tells it in a strange, but creative way. Good!

quite strange (in a good way)

apart from comic sans and lack of padding in the text bulbs this was 100% superawesome

Right, it didn't. :D

Should have placed a lot higher. Story is quite average but direction and graphics wise nice quality.

Liked it at the compo.

Demos don't normally tell stories, so I appreciate this for tying something new. The story itself was really cheesy, though, so things balance out to a piggy in the end. Also, what ps said.

i have mixed feelings about this.

Looks like a C64 demo on pc. It's a great demo, but some parts could have been better executed.
The part with the red building and the glow on the fractals is pretty.

Good to finally see more people from the Fulcrum collective in the credit list :)
It had a few ugly spots (like when the thing grows on the wall/column picture) and the general story is quite clicheé, but it felt refreshing during the compo.

Very original idea

some really strange stuff here. liked the cut-out effect in the beginning, but the rest was not my cup => piggy
I don't get it. But then thats probably just me. Therefor -> piggy.

Very original, atmospheric and nice combination of b&w gfx, background and effects.

Although the story is slow-paced and does not seem to get anywhere, I really appreciate the visual style and the conceptual experimentation.

and btw, video plz
Very interesting, props for the originality though I didn't fancy the style all that much. It was reminiscent of some Inward and CPU demos, but not nearly as good.

Hit & miss. The "story" didn't really work out imho.
added on the 2008-01-01 17:13:52 by tomaes tomaes
the story was 100% cliché, which is kinda bad when it's the what the rest of the demo is built on. and the graphics seem like a randomly thrown together collection of styles without any relation to the flow of the demo.

that said, i still enjoyed it during the compo, but it's no rulez.

I hate near filtering. I really, really do.

ryg has leading. it takes quite some restraint for me not to thumb this down.

this was very fucked up, but at least it stood out :)

i really like the idea of doing a story in an "animated comic" form like this, and i like the mixing of various different elements, like using video. props for originality.

unfortunately the number of crimes against design here is horrific. :) a good designer could have really run with this concept and made something superb.
unfortunately, the graphics dont fit together - if you're going to use photos, at least process them to fit together and with the rest of the content. the music isnt great, the story isnt very interesting, the flat green growing tree didnt look good, and then there's oddly placed ifs effects here and there for no apparent reason other than you chickened out and wanted to fill the space. shame. you picked something that's very very hard to do well, and it shows.

i'd really like to see the concept developed with the aid of a good designer and a more interesting story, though.

Some nice effects, and the idea of using a story is always great. But... Well... What they said... Pig.

Rather original demo style. Has potential.
