yea, nice concept

cute. :_)
sooo, it's a love triangle and everyone dies in the end... but i guess it's open to interpretation :)

there's no way I could piggy this.

It is amazing how with some great music sync, concept and direction, three chars can actually be enjoyable. I totally adore this!

Nice, though far from original

wow, who thought pixels could express could evoke such a range of emotional responses...

Disclaimer: I hadn't even heard about skrju & triebkraft's 256-byter until after finishing this prod. Also, I had written down some detailed plans about the concept already in January, so I think this is an example of a "great minds think alike" case (:
not my cup of tea but still it deserves a thumb for the effort.

I enjoyed this on the stream. I imagine such a feature in the next werkzeug :-)

The music is great, thumb up for that. Didn't get the visual story part :P

Haha, fun idea!

I couldn't believe it when people started cheering when this was shown. This really gives me hope that sceners don't need hypnoglow and ribbons to appreciate something :). The question remains however: Why is this so awesome? I know that it is, but I don't know why. I think it's irresistibly cute :).
rulezadded on the 2010-04-07 10:30:58 by elfan elfan
Update: managed to squeeze it down to 1K by removing the intro text and doing some minor optimizations. The 1K version (and the source code thereof) is now included in the download package.
basically this is just like the fairlight-demo, just with fewer pixels.
rulezadded on the 2010-04-07 10:42:10 by red red
I was tempted to pig it due to the very similar ZX intro (which i quite liked). Then again, I enjoyed this way too much at the party, so here goes.

Dramatic storytelling!

The beauty of abstraction and transparent way of expressing and planting emotional reactions.
rulezadded on the 2010-04-07 11:18:42 by oasiz oasiz
This one proves that a mighty idea always rules over hardwarebashing or getting another vector rotating. One of my favourites from all compos shown at BP2010. ;)

Oh the drama. Felt like a telenovela on Speed reduced to a bunch of blocky pixels.
Top notch!!!!

Is it possible to have a video?

They say that "perfection is acheived not when there's nothing more to add, but when there's nothing more to take away".
This certainly holds true for this prod.

I see what you were trying to do, but it didn't really succeed.

I see what you were trying to do, and you succeeded perfectly. Would be an experiment tho to see if it still works without that perfectly synced soundtrack.

Shitloads of visual effects ? Who needs them ?
rulezadded on the 2010-11-09 22:21:20 by Tarmil Tarmil
it's rather funny to me how most of viznut's productions are immediately viewed as the pinnacle of a philosophical artform whilst in reality only a few dos prods and some vic20 demos are actually really good. i mean come on, what the *fuck* is this..
