Some lovely effects in this one, but why not make them go well together?

It would say it was above its own brand. Good work.

Flat music but in overall nice intro, only lacks a little bit of design or coherence.

But, anyway, I enjoyed it much so thumb up!

I must be mad, but I really enjoyed this :)

Some parts are just ugly (yes they are!) while others are ubercool. So weird :)

The tunnel and the part with the spheres were excellent. Very refreshing overall.

Quite nice. Tunnels are pretty cool. Music is not my cup of tea.

I agree with Keops on the visuals.

Generally, I really liked this intro! Some very cool effects, with an original touch and very entertaining all round. Good stuff!

I'm not a big fan of the music, and I think the palettes are all over the place and not really coherent at all. This feels like a lot of parts, not a uniform whole. And yet... I really liked it. :)

Really good demo with lots of cool parts in. Nice variations and cool track with cool vocal synthesis
rulez added on the 2009-08-02 15:12:55 by boomtopper boomtopper
Lots of cool scenes in here! Some direction/flow to tie the parts together would've made it truly great, but it's still very good as it is. Massive kudos for the greetings cylinder :D
rulez added on the 2009-08-02 15:29:29 by eladamri eladamri
The scenes as they are, look good, but KA usually fail when they put it all together. There's no flow, no sense of direction or coherence and the music is flat and unremarkable.

almost very good.

Nice return of the monkey.
As always great colorful effects, loved the tunnel with cubes, and the transparent cube.
Good sync overall, great 64k

Really nice effects, and the greets part was novel and cool.

Kakiarts once again delivers nice untraditional design & effects. Really well done!
rulez added on the 2009-08-03 08:28:59 by Corial Corial
Ambivalent - there are some really cool bits (like the refracting cube over the horrible color cubes), and then there are lots and lots of bad bits. Overall: piggie.

lame name!

Learn composition and direction. This could have been a really cool 64k. Colors, design amd general flow ruined alot of kickass effects.
added on the 2009-08-03 22:38:45 by quisten quisten
Does what I expected from a Kakiarts prod - great ideas well executed.
(Though I admit the "flow" became a bit predictable - at the tunnel part I actually thought "I bet he'll put the greetings here" :)

Some effects are nice, but the random color scheme spoils the whole impression.

Some very nice ideas in there, but in the end, neither the music nor the visuals were particularly appealing.

The first tunnel reminds me on a quantum cracktro.
All in all well done.
Nice graphics, nice tune and fits together pretty well.

Very nice direction and some really cool effects...but the colors were butt ugly :( That light bouncing on the field of spheres could've been probably one of the best 64k scenes ever had it had better colors..
rulez added on the 2009-08-05 19:55:48 by ferris ferris
Like the (pattern from random memory?) tunnels and the (raytraced csg?) balls... Overall, original ideas.

rulez added on the 2009-08-06 00:54:16 by xoofx xoofx
Nice effect ideas as usual.
But I think you got to get Gabi back to guide the design and colour scheme.

I am a fun of Kakiarts! These are the kind of demos that I like. I don't care about colors and design (which were still good enough in my opinion). The last part (game of life in morphing surface) is really cool and much better than the one I tried to do it in my first 4k. The spheres part was amazing (raytracing or polygons?)
rulez added on the 2009-08-07 15:40:47 by Optimus Optimus
fonts, words and clip-art on a floor scrolling and rotating,
synth music,
thousands of red balloons inflated by a inflation sphere,
landscape of balls with light effect flying over it,
tunnel with colorfull, curved paths mapped, electrons flowing in the paths, colorfull 3D cubes in the center of the tunnel,
kaki/orange sphere of spikes/triangles, morphing,
tunnel made of rotating and morphing rings, forming the greetings names,
colorfull cubes falling, filling the screen in the background. A transparent cube in the foreground doing shapes,
life 3D blobs landscape forming credit names

many scenes, technologically great but next time use some transitions between scenes, glue them together...

And the scripting is just perfect, transitions are really well placed/timed, perfectly synched to audio and smooth like vanilla. ;)
