A conflictive demo (see asm99 reports). Perhaps the music? perhaps the dragon? or the piece of meteorite? ;) But I like it.

Strange scene mix but enjoyable. Liked the inhouse scenes a lot more than dragon- and planet-"kiki"...

Nice graphics ('99) and good music (if you like such music ;).
Wonderful synchro with a lot of cool code!
I have nothing to say about asm organitzation.

A really worked demo, very plesant seeing it, and with a good use of mp3 format.(no commercial muzak used)

I know the sad story of this demo..

Demo rocks! L.O.D., Fog & a great modelled Dragon,. great design and MP3 (Well,. ripped?)
But greatest from the 3d accelerated demos in Assembly!

I remember this demo had problems in the Asm, but I don't remember what happened exactly. I really love the music and the scene of the castle. Nice demo with with a fast rhythm

the one and only winner from assembly. unfortunately the organizers fucked it up.
finally also some other group who make different music.
rocks like hell, keep up the good work.

The music is not ripped. It's from some friends of icg, and it's inedit.

Hey, music that ain't techno-esque, yet not ripped! Bonus points for that alone.

The demo itself is a mish-mosh of hardware accellerated 3D scenes with one section featuring realtime raytracing. I normally prefer to see 'common threads' between sections, but in this demo the seemingly disconnected parts work just fine. Perhaps it's the music or something...

I disagree completly. The music ruins it.

Rulez a lot! Should have won the Assembly'99, or at least have a good place! I agree with Mac, ASM orgos sux :(

Amazing demo, unluckily not Win2k friendly :(
added on the 2002-05-19 07:49:09 by Crest Crest
Amazing amount of code and cool effects/scenes. It's probably a bit too clicheé here and there, but could have won ASM '99 easily.

hmmh, they showed this at assembly99 at some point but i don't think i've seen it after that... maybe i should some day but i remember i didn't like the music too much.

Nice demo, anyway!
Rocks

Too bad I can't run it on my Win2k, because it's one of my all-time favourites. And the music alone would deserve a thumbs-up.

A great demo with a (sad) story behind... but it was and still is something to be proud of.

Good work Incognita!

yeh, fabulous demo

Oh yeah, this one was great. Please, patch it someday so I can see it on WinXP!!!

Utopian: Try it with Windows 95 compatibility enabled under XP. In got it running that way, although the music lagged a little...

Hm, not bad. Runs smooth in XP, W95 compatibility, 256 colors mode.

Nice. Needs Win98 compatibility for setup and exe and only ran in 800x600 for me.
