I liked how the wooden puppet spins his drumstick.

The renewal of the french demoscene, great production mate :)

Great! Although it's completely based on the Animusic series, it's very well done! And in 64k :)

64k is back!
Rendering and content is not as impressive as in Gaia Machina, but the direction is a lot better - I'd have a hard time choosing between the two for best of the compo.

Discovering the final demo yesterday, as if the stream crash. Woow, well done friends, emotions was realy there :)

so, audio track was now available on SoundCloud and the making of the the soundtrack will soon also available.

64k is the new demo!

This has what Gaia Machina missed, great direction, storytelling, good soundtrack. Not as jaw-dropping as GM's first seconds, I prefer this one though...

Impressive amount of content. I especially liked the music-box with all the little pins sync'ed to the music. And I completely agree with xylo. It was genious to have the woodden doll flip the drumstick - it's those extra things, that shows what a massive amount of work was put into making it. Congratulations, guys!

Youtube HD 1080p and this is how it should look.
xcom's capture is too dark. On the big screen, there was some minor problems (problem on the text). I hope we'll address these issues in a final version. Thanks for all the comments!

I really thought you would've edged us in that compo. I was surprised at the results. Regardless, this is an excellent production and a really nice idea. thumbs from approximate!

Great stuff. I like how you keep coming up with new ideas in the context of demoscene, this one had actual heart in it. Not entirely polished but one of the most refresing 64ks in the last couple years.

Visuals are a little bit "cold" for my taste, but ideas, atmosphere, and scenario are very original and well thinked. Same comment than for Gaia Machnia: refreshing!
rulezadded on the 2012-04-10 21:07:11 by Hicks Hicks
lots of content but not very polished.
also, the music felt too digital for the toy syncs it had.
but im sure it'll entertain some folks.
thumb up for the effort.

Great direction, lot of details and work put in. However the rendering seemed quite unpolished or let's say unspectacular. Very enjoyable nevertheless

Good stuff. And yet, the visuals could use an edge or two, models and textures look "good enough", but not quite as good as they could be. Also, most of the surfaces are shadow-less which might add to the visual "flatness" and the impression that many objects seem to float around instead stand on the table (2nd scene).

some nice ideas and pretty good sync, but overall picture quality and atmosphere are not there. like how it turned out to be a fly-by over slightly animated geometry that we've already seen in the first minute.

rulezadded on the 2012-04-14 00:25:24 by edhellon edhellon
I really, really liked this. There are a lot of ways to do retro-cool. This way was to make a 64k intro that looks like a classic Pixar short movie / showreel -- except about 100 times more charming. Love it!
rulezadded on the 2012-04-14 04:24:24 by t-zero t-zero

Not my kind of stuff but i guess it deserves the praise.

For some odd reason whole thing reminds me of reception of Budbrain megademo(s), how 97% of people thought of it was the best, new innovative thing of the century and me and couple other fools are like meh..

(Haven't seen animusic.)

I think this is BRILLIANT. The direction and storytelling is really great, and I love the way the train has to anticipate the music. Makes it seem like a very thoughtful train.

It's difficult to do realistic rendering, and I admire your efforts. Stick some good AO in next time :-)

Wow, thanks all for the kind words! We are slowly recovering from Revision, and may get back at it... well, sometime. :) There are a couple of bugs left (broken text rendering on the compo machine, dark rendering in xcom's capture - would you mind telling your setup?) so we'll have a look at it. Many said the rendering was lacking; I still don't really get what is the core issue, but if I manage to get it I might consider enhancing it for a final version, assuming it doesn't require a full rewrite of the pipeline of course.

@rez, moozoo, boyC, djh0ffman: thank you guys, these kinds of comments are much appreciated!

@xyz, abductee: the only prod I can think of that used books for credits is Point Blank, but it seemed to be rushed unfortunately. Here, we had a bookshelf, so using it seemed like an opportunity not to be missed for not intrusive greetings.

@MissCtrl: I'm speechless at your comment.

@Approximate team: thank you guys, it was a great time competing with you; well deserved 1st place. :)

Last but not least, thanks a lot to all who compared this to Pixar stuff and Spot by Exceed, it means a lot.

Very nice!
It looks like metalic objects are shaded by anisotropic lighting.
Woods are rendered with physically based shading?
I think more shadows and indirect lights will make more realistic scene.

Felix just left the room when the intro starts, and puts an end to the music when he gets backs (see his shadow on the floor).
