I guess this was supposed to be funny, but I missed a joke or something. Nice 2D and some good looking scenes/fx, versus painful music, bad pacing and endless boring flybys. Weak piggy.

I'm not a fan of Amiga flybys as the geometry and texturing is very basic and easy to make and it's not really pushing the machine if it needs an 060 CPU.

However, I liked the presenation and there were a few nice effects thrown into the mix so as a demo I quite enjoyed it.

I love those smooth flyby scenes as in "When We Ride On Our Enemies".
This reminds me that Jamie mentioned once that there is a fixed/optimized version of Ride (or at least he's working on it). Wondering what happened to it???
Anyway, thumb up ^

The soundtrack doesn't fit the visuals or the general speed of the demo. And it feels empty...

The demo itself is a bit boring and mainly a 3D flyby. The technical part is brilliant, so thumb goes up

The visuals are strong but the sound is disappointingly bad. The demo did not work so well for me on the bigscreen, but the work still deserves a thumb up.
rulezadded on the 2011-04-26 20:52:58 by Corial Corial
Ok enough is enough:) It could be really cool if you tell us why you don't like our song. I can understand that you don't like the style or the vocals but it's the first time that we have this problem.
this tune did absolutely not work for me.. the visuals are nice.
added on the 2011-04-26 22:18:37 by nemesis nemesis
The vocals are done with heavy use of autotune (or equal soundprocessing) thats not everyones cup of tea. The kewl loader-part, fast 3D and nice tunnel are worth the thumb up.
rulezadded on the 2011-04-26 22:23:49 by dirtie dirtie
Good code (as expected from Jamie) and nice graphics/3d too. I also like the references to Jamie's older demos, nice touch. :) The soundtrack would be OK without the vocals which totally ruin it! The "Skarla is massive" part in the soundtrack is VERY annoying and almost destroys the whole demo for me. Still, thumb for the code and graphics.

Massive comeback!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very nice demo, code, 3D and effects are fantastic (icy tunnel is my favourite). Music is good no doubts, but maybe girl vocals would fit better ;o)

Hint for the use on the real thing.
Start it from a native HiRes screen, i.e. change screenmode beforehand.

From the design-side the fonts and overall presentation totally hit my button, although I would've liked some pieces on the subway trains ;)
The greetings-vocals were over the top starting with the misspelling.
All in all a very enjoyable comeback, but I think it's time to accept that the time of 3D-flyby scenes are over even on the Amiga ;)
rulezadded on the 2011-04-27 08:35:39 by d0DgE d0DgE
Hah! Worthy third place. Technically very good but not very interesting direction. Obviously a thumbs-up :).

not SO massive as the vocals would want make me to believe, but ok otherwise
added on the 2011-04-27 10:20:20 by tripper tripper
Excellent comeback, and I really like the soundtrack as well! It was the toughest decision ever for me as compo orga to not put this among the last two entries shown...

I hope there'll be more stuff from you in the future!

After all those years just this? Boring fly-by with totally iunrelated music? Oh, come on guys. Put those Skarla legend aside and nothing left. Just a piggy for an effort (should be thumb down for massive boredom factor).
rulezadded on the 2011-04-27 14:26:00 by AzzaroMWI AzzaroMWI
the soundtrack is not my taste, but skarla is massive!
rulezadded on the 2011-04-27 23:50:59 by martin martin
This is the production I first checked after returning home to my computer due to high expectations. First signs of this comeback were visible about 5 years ago, so I have been waiting for it for a very long time and was pleased to see how well it all turned out. Apart from the overall quality I especially like the falling objects scene.

Regarding the music and direction, I think using "massive" so often in the song was maybe not such a good idea. I reckon it might have accelerated a downwards spiral in people's mind when they don't actually find it so massive and can't follow the enthusiasm of the creators as it speaks through their creation? Anyway, please don't let this stop you. I am looking forward to your next release.

Possibly makes this comment sound worse, than it's intended, but found this incredibly boring and terribly directed
sucksadded on the 2011-04-29 14:20:18 by Shockwav3 Shockwav3
Just watched it on my A4060 and the speed is really impressive, very nice code indeed. And while I still don't really like the vocals in the song I find them less annyong the more often I watch the demo. ;) Still, a version without vocals would be very cool. :) Also, since a final is planned anyway, please add some LoadView(0) and WaitTOF() to your startup code so the demo can be started from RTG screens. ;)

Anyway, really impressive code! Here's one more [img]http://pouet.net/gfx/rulez.gif[/url] for you.

Nice to see an oldskool group coming back to to show a production. The demo itself was very nice, got quite some nice effects. The pace felt great and made the demo fine. Perhaps the music could have been different, but hey that's better than to have an old murkish song bashing the ears :)
Great to see you guys back.

rulezadded on the 2011-05-03 17:41:38 by Punqtured Punqtured
Excellent show! My favourite part is the ball with the light inside - awesome. I must admit I also dig the soundtrack and the vocals, especially in the first part. (If I was nit-picking I would point out a tad bit tracker-sounding drums and synth guity.) And btw - I consider the intro and shouting "Massive" as a sort of self-irony rather than megalomania and like it too.

Great code, the vocals are kind of un-impressive though, not enough oomph in the delivery. And as much as I love how you can push 3D on a 50 MHz 060, all these modern Amiga demos seem so formulaic and in the end rather boring. But that goes for a lot of other groups rather than just Skarla.
