Also, the title is really "Shipping is a feature", there's no double 'n', that'll teach me to upload a prod when i'm half-drunk :)

The lack of sound or music makes oldschool style demos really boring, IMHO.

Some nice graphics, but this desperately needs music.

Please release a final with music.

Music is a feature

Yeah bad that you had not enough time for a soundtrack, but I very like the graphics/effects and the platform. A final release with music would be nice. Anyway a thumb up.

what? No music? What were you thinking?

Hard to thumb up without any audio...

This comment will ship in time but without a thumb up.

Hi people,

Firstly, thanks for all the comments, good or bad, they're always interesting to read.

About the music, we agree : an oldschool demo with no music is boring.

But last year at the MAINPARTY, we've had a rather sad experience.

It was our first demoparty and we worked hard to make a first demo, but without any experience and not enough time, the production wasn't released.
We spent a very good time there, but we were also very disappointed not to release our demo.

For the Buenzli, we decided to make our first real demo but, silly idea, we started the demo only 18 days before the party.

We worked hard and kept working there, until just before the deadline, but we encountered a problem with playing music : some screens would just crashed then.

We had three options:

1 - not to release
2 - release with music but with buggy screens,
3 - drop the music and keep the demo with working screens.

The first option was unimaginable. We chose this option last year and didn't want to make the same mistake.

The second one was a serious option but we've had been working very hard to get screens we liked. Honestly, we were very proud of these screens and decided not to have them crash

So, we chose to release without music.

We knew the demo would be rather handicapped with no sound, but we chose to do so nonetheless.

And you know what ?
We are very happy about this decision :)

Your heart beats to fast you think you're going to die.
Your mind can't believe it is YOUR demo playing on the big screen.
Your hands shake so much, you can't stop them.
And, at least, the fraking smile doesn't want to leave your face when, at the end of the demo, you hear some people shout, hoping they liked it.
You feel alive, fraking alive.
And my gods, you don't want it to stop.

This (long) comment is not an apology or a justification, it's only a way to tell that the experience was so high that the only thing we can think about after is to do more demos, learn more and spend more good moments in demoparties.

Demomaking is fraking good.
And for the next demo, we'll start early, promised ^^

Cheers, demomakers friends.

Thumb for finally releasing something. :)
We want more!

I agree with Zavie: You should release a final version with music. I'm waiting for it!

Good music and obscure platform -> thumb up
It feels like it's possibe to do better visually on the turbografx though.

You're right, it can do better, we were just not familiar enough with the machine back then. But now we've spent some quality time with it, next demo will be teh roxor ! :-)

The final is awesome - thumb way up. Also love that little bit of comment about seeing your stuff on any kind of big screen (or hearing it on a big sound system, if music is your thing ;) )
