Fuck! That was my reaction with the first screen of this demo (uses the same concept as that 4k by AEG I can guess?) and there are some other cool effects right after.

Superb demo! Some very nice effects and cool graphical touches (the pig-and-blinking eyes screen looks really, really awesome!)

Awesome 3d scroller and nice reference to Deus Ex Machina.

Awesome 3D scroller, gfx, effects, sound, sync...
Megademo done right!
rulez added on the 2008-10-26 21:31:59 by xernobyl xernobyl
right, the 3d-scroller is the most tasty c64-effect I've seen I think.

great demo with fantastic music and style.
my favourite from the compo.

I'm really happy for WVL that he finally got round to finish this. The use of gfx is very nice, but the music was lacking some things for me.

some great gfx and music in here. all nicely presented too

Maybe lacked the consistency of oxyron's demo, but i think this hit higher in places. Great gfx too!

Outstanding! ...never thought there will be a competition of c64-demos anymore where a demo like this on ranks on "only" 3rd place. ;) The first screen shockes but is nothing really impossible.. I really liked the fresh idea of the plasma and of course the link to crest ;)

Damn nice effects, good music, graphics of varying quality.
rulez added on the 2008-10-28 15:32:47 by Radiant Radiant
Btw, I've heard the music on the middle already. I think it's a remix/reversion of a recent tune. The most similar I can find it "Justice - Genesis"...

Anyone?

Damn, it seems that my 1541 died during watching it... Everything but music stopped after the foetus pic climb up to the screen...

Plenty of cool effects and some great graphics by Valsary and Sander. But some of the graphics and effects could have been left out.

Looked great, scroller and interference effects were both very cool. Also nice pixel work in here.

doh: That's because you have transfered the disk using some method that only handles 35 tracks (demo uses 40 tracks).
Get the 2-disc version instead.

Nice, especially the two first chessboard fx and the interferencewobbler.

I absolutely loved the first half! Took me a while until I saw that the big scroll actually is a parallax-scroll. Nice! Second half was just good.

The phrase is 'Pearls before swine'... but all encyclopedias will change that to ' Pearls for pigs' after this!! :)

This made me happy. Every single part is great! I especialy enjoyed the perspective scrollers. Great music and gfx. Simply top notch!

Now I have to see who came 2nd and 1st!? ? ?

this is still one of my all time favourite demos on the c64... especially because of the outstanding soundtrack by a-man
