One of the best demo by Coma... The music (by Groo) is really great and fit perfectly to the visual effects.
Great job dudes !

mhm, not my cup of tea, but its fairly nice anyway. The music is whack, but still cool :>

In my opinion one of the _very best_ demos of the mid-90's.

the best "classic" coma demo I think. the finnish version has a stronger feeling than the rather clunky english translation...
added on the 2001-01-09 00:17:19 by saffron saffron
the best coma demo, no doubt. there is a hungarian joke edition by Kamu crew, called Pumpa. :)

One of the best demos ever and _the_ best one from coma.
added on the 2001-05-25 14:57:03 by uncle-x uncle-x
I agree with uncle. I seriously freaked out early in the demo the first time I saw it :)

aww.. it's a shame it's completely messed up when run on a fast computer.

It´s great! It somehow appears timeless, I can´t quite say what it is.
This one will never die!

coma at its most powerful!

who could forget this demo?

I've always felt that this was
the most underrated pc-demo (second reality being the most overrated)

and come back, groo... come back...

aahh... here we go
added on the 2001-11-08 03:15:47 by hempest hempest
we need groo to come back.
somehow i doubt groo needs to come back,however.

where is he? all of the tracks he did for koma productions are fukin ace.

a demo i'd rather watch than the current stuff thash coming out

for once I agree with Uncle-X about something. this _is_ one of the very best demos I've seen.

This demo makes me always thoughful. There are words and then again there are words. What you believe doesn't matter if it's all just aiming for a better life. The message is same time a bit naive but still very powerful.

And as Saffron mentioned, you really have to see Finnish version, English one sucks big time. Perhaps it'd be time for a final final version?
rulezadded on the 2002-04-20 19:11:10 by melw melw
Does anybody know where I can find the english version?
added on the 2002-05-01 12:05:08 by tomaes tomaes
Ok, I already found the fixed version incl. the translated lyrics (thanx to good ol' hornet) and I agree that the english version sucks. :)
added on the 2002-05-01 12:39:06 by tomaes tomaes
prehaps the best demo ever.

Hey,. the one I downloaded is the Finnish version. Where can I read the concept in English? Hey,.. and I can't find my phrase nowhere ;P

Music rocks, visuals rule and the texts are übercool.

I got the English version from some old CDs of a friend with lotsa demos. The same version is featured also in the DemoDVD btw..
added on the 2003-02-18 10:43:38 by Optimus Optimus
i think the finnish version is muchos better.
added on the 2003-02-18 13:33:48 by nosfe nosfe
it's so great.
rulezadded on the 2003-02-18 13:43:25 by gloom gloom
As people don't read nfo files I might as well give you instructions to switch between languages on fixed version.<br>Use parameters /F (for finnish) and /E (for english).<br>I do agree that english version sucks, but it is always hard to translate lyrical text.
added on the 2003-07-07 20:20:03 by virne virne
Uups. No caps. Parameters are /f and /e. "Fixed" version really fixes couple of minor bugs not only the language. But as you now know, both languages are there.

Brilliant. The soundtrack kicks ass and there's a message in the demo, which alone makes it better than 95% of the modern ones.
rulezadded on the 2004-09-15 12:09:47 by Preacher Preacher
One of my all time favourite demos.

Best "scenepoetry" ever.

Great atmosphere and I have to agree, that it does work better with finnish poetry.

Hadn't commented this yet, so: Excellent demo with a very good soundtrack and "scene poetry" that's actually interesting and the usage of video is interwoven beautifully into graphical effects.

This was the first demo that showed me that the demo medium is usable for artistic self-expression. Also my favorite Coma demo.

Absolute top class production. Probably one of the first real examples of artistic expression in the context of demoscene. Features clever use of effects, fantastic color palette, and a great track.
