I love originality !

Really great job guys, and thank you for the trying something original / with a concept.

They are things to say (pacing, some ubernice scenes and some quite ugly), but the work is awesome and the result very charming (and the music rulez).

Huge thumb up for your first demo/intro!

Awesome. The very last scene took this one even further. :)

This test seems to have failed.

Anyway, a test that fails is

Thanks all for the awesome feedback.

@mueslee : definitely.

@xernobyl : try using a different resolution. We are yet to nail that issue.
added on the 2010-08-29 00:09:30 by Zavie Zavie
I really like the city and the endpart was a nice surprise too. Other than that I find it a bit uneventful and the rather boring music didn't really help. Still, nice intro and quite impressive for a firstie.

I reaaallly loved it at the compo. With a little bit more shading/lighting/postprocessimg, it would be one of my all time favorites. Simple concept, extremely well executed.
rulez added on the 2010-08-29 03:45:15 by pixtur pixtur
I can't say it is beautiful, but:
1) Respect for such a huge work.
2) It was interesting to watch. This definetely makes intro to be thumb-upped.
rulez added on the 2010-08-29 09:02:46 by stan_1901 stan_1901
Wow, impressive amount of work, a nice story, some beautiful scenes, music pretty. Would deserve some postprocessing, better color/theming of some scenes, but definitely a breakthrough for a 1st prod, congrats!

worthy winner, but ugly and not really something i'd watch again ...
Some interesting movement, but looks absolutely horrible!
added on the 2010-08-29 18:46:29 by Wade Wade
Some great ideas but some ugly transitions and presentation. I like the game of life and the subpixels. I didn't like the fullscreen giant pixels effect or the music. So pig.
what xerno said :(

ah good hint with the resolution! ;)
(1680x1050 = crash; 1280x800 = worky)
basically what the others said: great ideas and well everbody loves cubes! <3
some of them looked a little too simple for my taste, tho...

Especially the first half didn't look that great. Shadows would really improve it. But thumb up for the nice concept and amount of work.

Incredible job you've made boys !! Writting the song from the storyboard was something really special... hear it with this demo is incredible !! I was realy proud you let me once again work you, getting out my Pause Mode... I realy would like to add vocals to the song, but it was absolutly not so easy ;)

For the one, who like the songs, i've just uploaded the song : I love cube, before incubation on my website, this the version written, just before the last adjustment from LLB to fit more well to the demo !!

Thanks to all for the positive feedback. :)

@gloom: there's still an unresolved issue we're working on; try with a smaller resolution, it should work just fine.
added on the 2010-08-30 14:55:50 by Nicuveo Nicuveo
To begin with I was going to stay this lacked any feeling - however once passed through the factory scenes it gets much better and I especially like the cube trees (towards the end) and the end scene itself is very nice - enjoyable music too.

Thanks again for your feedback all. Your comments are very much appreciated and give us much insight on what to get improved for next time.

The resolution bug seems to be happening to many people, which means it should be quite straightforward to fix. Honestly, we've been nothing much but resting since Evoke. ;-) So be a bit patient for the final version.

Anyway, here is a captured video.
