Cute music.
Overall an ok prod :), without the "wow" effect of trash :D.

I know why you did Gargaj, it’s because it’s a really cool demo, and you wanted to share it with the rest of us. Personally I felled in love with those really good looking colours and nice music.

yep nice fractals, cool music :)

Liked it. the music gave me a very good old-school demo feeling.

Nicely done, enjoyable to watch!

Kind of nice and very "demoish", but it could have something more behind it, and perhaps could be a bit more gritty (it looked too clean for my taste).

it's an OK demo

Hm, can't run on my box. :( It's missing some julia.ufx thingie. Does that means it's time to buy a new gfx card? Radeon X800 here.

long untextures scenes but a kind of fresh feeling. works well as a compo filler.

really nice
does the fractal rendering run on the GPU ? my P4 2.4 / 6600GT could not take it :/

It needs 3.0 shader capabilities for the julia renderer. Ironically, the demo system was built in a way that it allows caps-checking and the demo would be able to run without that (and give a warning note that your hardware will cause some effects to be dropped), it's just that there's a design flaw in the engine so it currently just quits.
does the fractal rendering run on the GPU ?

yeah, it does.

I agree with Preacher. A bit too clean and stark for my liking.

I also found the mutating blob crawled at 1fps.

It's not bad, but had a first demo feeling about it.

Video please, won't work here. I keep reducing stuff on the menu and it keeps sending me an error about the Julia file.

Supercool with supercool music!
rulezadded on the 2008-07-13 20:10:01 by Bobic Bobic
I detected the same cleanness mentioned before (got the feeling like it's an engine I'm working on running fullscreen and that it will fall back to code on exit). The music was enough to save that though :)

Kinda short, cool juhlia quaternion effect and the line shape morphing and clean colors.

that's a very good question indeed, and it's funny how you realized what my problem is with this prod... i wrote a long paragraph of drivel here and then i just deleted it, and i'll stick to "i don't know."

fun to watch... once. I like the color scheme, but it's not very original. Somehow reminds me to [url]http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=50868[url]. Also, the 3d julia shader was done before a few times, and is ~1 fps (somewhat better on ultra-low resolution) on my 7600 gs (which is admittedly not a power plant, but...)

Thumbs up for the music and that quaternion effect (it's slow in my computer but cool).
