So ugly! I guess this is what they call coder colours.

ah, and please... if you already support 16:9, please also add some 16:10 support (like 1920x1200)

oh maali i don't know that you can call it "commercial music". trent reznor is a brilliant musician and released these tracks for free and asked his fans to create the visuals. check out: http://ghosts.nin.com/

Wow, I really like this. For some reasons I like the colors even if they are bright and considered to be coder's. Even from the screenshots I love the colors and how they reflect on the blobs. I don't care, I think they fit. The demo is energetic with some effects I adore, like the blobs that recursively split like it's life dividing or something or the tentacles. So great!

Not using your own music makes this a piggy Yes, I know you're using it legal - read my reason: -There are SO many musicians in the scene - use them!

I didn't care much for this one. The colors were ugly and the soundtrack wasn't to my taste (has nothing to do with using a 'commercial' track though). And somehow it just didn't manage to keep my interest throughout. The lab scene was quite nice though.

rulezadded on the 2008-08-29 01:06:35 by Grimmy Grimmy
I thought this was great. The intro is good, the metaball-stuff looks really ace (especially in HD), but the white lab-part sort of didn't fit very well, even though I like when it changes in the end. The music.. well.. I suppose it was used to whack two flies with one stone and compete in two compos at once, but if not: ask a demoscene musician for a track next time - there are plenty of them around. :)

nice effort; congratulations! mostly what gloom said. the colors were really nice, and the on-screen controls/widgets are fun to look at. i would have liked the lab scene more if the rendering was better (object quality wasn't consistent), and if camera movements through the lab were more refined.

it was weird and somewhat discouraging to see nine inch nails credited for demo music. i'm a scene musician too, although i'd recommend phoenix for industrial music.

i would give a thumbdown as a lesson normally ! ( yep, theres no difference between men and women ! we´re all just some intelligent animals ! )

but as this prod did get rated too bad for its ossomness so far i´ll give you some up-showin´ one !

i am some fuckin rocker, never liked NiN at all, but this intro makes it work with me ! gratz for that alone ;)

i just guess all the mega-releases @ nvision just made ppl picky at that time ;)
-> this for sure is a superb demo !

The effects and timing are perfect, and there are a couple of great unexpected moments in there. I was surprised it was only 3rd at NVScene, but only until I saw what they were up against...
