I have to say that this demo surprised me, so very different from their other ones. Thumbs for breaking out of the box.

Wow! I really dig the music and style, the 3d are impressive and the brain scan thing, first time I see such an effect on a demo. I really really like it, more than the 2nd place.

nice style... maybe a bit to long

Nice ideas and design, but sorry, those 5 or more frame chunk 3d scenes are painful to watch and serve to show what's not possible on ST better than they show what is possible. Those morphing MRI scan thingies were nice though.
Oh and have a thumb too.

+ Technically impressive and great soundtrack!
- For my taste this text thing at the beginning and the slideshows between the effects are boring and destroys the flow of the demo. I have also to agree with parapete - the 3d parts are too slow to really enjoy them.
All in all it´s still worth a small thumb up. ;-)

Defjam does newschool! Totally unexpected, the real dark horse entry to the party.

cool & fresh.
rulez added on the 2008-05-05 17:47:08 by grey grey
Really cool stuff as always ! Darker art, strong 3D maybe a bit too long but definitely something new and ass kicking !
rulez added on the 2008-05-05 17:51:19 by sts sts
Not my taste at all, neither zik nor graphics. And I agree the intro is a bit too lengthy.
Good performance!

defjam does it again

pleasantly suprised or disappointed. i don't know which feeling is more prominent when viewing this. it's quite original. it even has a totally new effect. the music rocks, and it has enough content. sadly, the flow is all wrong. still, definitely worth a thumb for the brave new stuff and good compatibility.

(btw, i love some of the bands mentioned in the beginning: defjam, if you want to exchange some music, let me know :))

Checkpoint is back on the tracks and once again kill everything :)
Great effects and nice soundtrack, as usual.
However 3D parts are slow and the intro is a bit long.

The demo itself is not bad, but the tune! What a masterpiece from 505 in my opinion! I will watch that prod many more times just to listen to it.
rulez added on the 2008-05-14 13:23:00 by doggyfred doggyfred
Very much feel like earx. The 3D is technically impressive but far too slow in some scenes, and the CRT effect is freaky but hard to grasp. Too many shaky photos with content hard to identify and repetitive phrases.
The tune is absolutely phantastic though so it's worth a thumb up.
rulez added on the 2008-05-18 22:20:45 by Paranoid Paranoid
music is amazing. Nice and technical 3D/c2p effects (even if I too miss the time when everything would play at 50 frames/second :))
rulez added on the 2008-05-27 23:45:46 by HarryPotter HarryPotter
I really like it. It did lose some on the big screen though...

OK. & funny music.

for the ProTrekkr tune in the last part.

Overall a quite cool demo, the soundtrack is really crazy, can´t understand that I missed that demo so far...
rulez added on the 2009-05-28 17:51:41 by moondog moondog
Too long for my taste, a bit repetitive as well, but some very nice parts.

can anyone get this running under Hatari ?

Great noisy Chip Acid and few nice effects, but could probably have been better done in half of that time

not a fan of the bouncing still pictures
Thumb for the music. The rest is average.
