Stuttering! About every 3 second it runs smooth, then stops for about 3 secs...

Vista 64bit, dual core E6700, 4GB RAM, openGL 3.3, Catalyst 12.3 rad5850

Tried different resolutions, fullscreen, windowed - all the same.

not my cup of tea at all, had high expectations for something like dubrovnik. Not a fan of the modelling nor animation of the characters, although I do approve of the work.

Really cool, better then the Revision 2012 demos.

Guys, you better be more careful animating meshes. It is gay when meshes touch and intersect :) Even if you can't calculate all bones and objects moevements completely correct (sometimes it is really hard) you still can hide all imperfections with camera.

MDK vs Matrix Reloaded? Sometimes I wonder where sceners get their inspiration from and what makes them think that a horrid mess like this makes any sense at all. :)

You had me at "extending spline-particles". Animation detracts a bit.

actually this was pretty ugly: too much contrast textures, clipping, flickering, mediocre animations...

the animations need some serious improvements - otherwise:

Congrats on winning :-) For my part: Modelling: Thumbs up. Effects/general interestingness: Not so much. The balls-being-displaced effect is an okay-ish effect, but why are the balls jumping completely in sync at the start?

some parts are great looking, some others aren't. Overall thumb-up though.

Cool code, modeling, textures, design, camera and sound. Awful characters animation (even "Micropolis" 4k intro has better one).

But thumb up for the graphic style !

Great soundtrack and some great ideas... the character modelling was not the best here.

I liked the intro with plane and "cube cloud" but sadly the style of this demo is not really my cup of tea. But I will not thumbdown it because I recognize that you made a good work :)

I actually liked this one a lot, it managed to surprise me at points with the quality and that's always a good thing. Sure it's a mess but who said demos can't be.

there's some good elements to this - e.g. i like the cube effect, there's some good scenes and it looks like there's quite a lot of effort gone into the models, which is great to see.. but some things drag it down.

for some reason the look really reminds me of happiness is around the bend, and i dont mean that in a good way - the texturing style, the over-contrast and in particular the nasty,nasty ssao with huge halos.

Lyrics anyone ?
Lyrics would be something like this I guess :)

- The future is inherently a good thing
- And we move into it one winter at a time
- Things get better one winter at a time
- If you're going to celebrate something; have a drink on this:

- The world is generally and on balance
- A better place to live this year than it was last year
- For instance:

- I didn't have this gun last year

There's obviously fine tech and art in there. However I find it quite unfortunate that there are some things in it which remind me more of alien 2 (amiga) than contemporary state of the art PC demos. With a bit more polish and better animations here and there this could have been a real killer.
