Brain control are back. Liked especially the music and the visuals too.

Awesome 64k, as ever ! Tunefish3 sounds really well indeed. (Which reminds me that I owe you a beer, Payne, for your help on snare drums. ^^)

It's good to see good 64k intros this year, it's good to see 2000-ish indus style, it's good to see you guys back.

Lots of content and nice music, although the industrial stuff is a bit stale :-) Thanks, probably my favourite from the compo!

hmh I hate shadowmap edge flickering, makes it look like theres something wrong with the whole thing. kinda dirty. ok flyby. would have hoped pipe flyby's are thing of yesterday =)

Impressive amount of assets but feels empty. Still a great prod in a dying category!
rulezadded on the 2011-04-25 19:23:11 by okkie okkie
The first few moments seemed atmospheric, and there seems to be a quite decent 64k engine running the show.. Sadly the intro turned out to be just a flyby hell with nauseating camera work, fugly colors, lackluster sound, pipes and more pipes. Sorry, no.

Looks like they're redoing the same intro since 2004, i guess their brains is still controlled by fr-08.

i didnt exactly like the music and camerapaths/direction, but still a solid production

Cute. The concept is cheesy and the camera paths are predictable, but the factory model is really nice, and it's done in 64k! Good enough for me.

Surely an effort to create this, but it feels so empty. The opening and the drilling scene were most remarkable to me.
added on the 2011-04-26 02:50:29 by fiveofive fiveofive
Pretty massive. Remember this is 64k. As a demo, it probably wouldn't work.

Nice atmosphere and music. The industrial tunnels have been done before, true, but they fit in the story, and story-demos often seems to have an edge at compos. So, congrats on the 1st place!
rulezadded on the 2011-04-26 20:37:04 by Seven Seven
Technically good, but i think they have done the same in all their intros now, so for me a boring flyby....

This has great code and all... but a flyby through an industrial setting is really dated and it feels like I've seen a thousand of those (especially in 64k intros). This still rules, but please come up with a new concept next time.

A well deserved win - some great 64k demos at the first Revision Party :) Very impressive - although the text kinda reminded me of Windows Screensaver :P (if only the windows screensaver was half as interesting to watch!)
rulezadded on the 2011-04-30 01:58:48 by Zonbie Zonbie
The scenery was very impresive, and I like the warm plasma-thingy effect too. The music is not exactly that interesting and seems to suffer from having to be too long to fit the intro. If you used the V2 synth, a lot more interesting instruments could have been created to spice things up a bit. A shorter production with higher pace and better produced music would be a huge improvement. Thumb up nonetheless :)

Pretty cool. Some parts got choppy for video and audio too. Maybe my ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of RAM; 1280x1024 resolution) in an old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 isn't good enough. :(

Rendering is ugly, scenes are boring. Music is ok, but the "use cutoff on the entire mix" trick should have been done only once.
I'd rather watch fr-08 again than this.
