I quite liked this one. Uses the character set with smaller blocks to look like higher char res. Features a fly of bird over city, flat clean colors, and also wonderful music!

Very nice improvement on the "block color" mode!

textmode <3
I like it and made a YT Capture for it. Used 8x8 charset, as it looked wrong in default mode ;)

nice idea with the lovely bird, nice music, nice scenes plus 64k. fucking great!

i really love the concept and the size of it but i think it would have worked even better without squeezing it through an ansi-lib...
rulezadded on the 2013-01-15 13:21:28 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
64k textmode! yeah! cool demo with a good style. my personal 2nd place of the compo!

Lovely 80's vibes. Better use of splines would have been nice though, the cameras and the wings of the bird are a bit choppy.

Well there's a flyby I actually like. Great stuff, just what Preacher said about splines.. Maybe a final version would be in order? :)

I really like this, nice atmosphere!
rulezadded on the 2013-01-15 15:58:23 by StingRay StingRay
textmode should always be 64k
rulezadded on the 2013-01-15 17:35:09 by Gargaj Gargaj
what stingray said. camera paths during the tunnel and the city part afterwards is a bit well, interesting :D
rulezadded on the 2013-01-15 17:47:26 by Maali Maali
Great, but what Preacher said, please use splines in your next prod :)

There might be some rough edges here and there, but i like the dreamy atmosphere a lot, plus it's 64k

Thanks for the comments everyone! I am probably going to make a final version with smoother camera paths (and stereo sound!)

sorry for beeing the combo breaker but it didnt really do anything for me. its decent, but no replay value.

Nice one. Could be a little faster on Intel Atom :o)

Can I see the sources? Pretty please!

very nice
rulezadded on the 2013-01-17 11:14:51 by nekomono nekomono
I think that the usage of the "¦" char prevents me from enjoying it. Wouldn't "▌" and "▐" have been a better choice?
added on the 2013-01-17 12:04:35 by xTr1m xTr1m
xTr1m the "¦" is due to wrong codepage.

really nice feeling, somehow kinda .. cant put it into words. Works for me :)

The city and the bird anim were cool (except for the camera paths as pointed out), the music felt a tad weak.
added on the 2013-01-18 01:20:20 by Alpha C Alpha C
The music is weak because I rewrote it at the last second after I couldn't fit the original soundtrack in 64k. :P

I think you can fix the code page by typing "chcp 437" in the console. I will try to get it to do that from the demo.

I like it. Good use of the half-vertical block chars. Glorious EGA colors! :)
rulezadded on the 2013-01-18 20:57:38 by phoenix phoenix
Great... Nice textmode-street, city, bird etc.
rulezadded on the 2013-01-19 17:03:48 by Chainsaw Chainsaw
Very nice textmode street scene! And I really dig the tune :)
rulezadded on the 2013-01-19 17:13:00 by -SP- -SP-
Maybe the piano scene was unnecessary. Could maybe use some tricks to hide aliasing in like mipmapping for TMDC logo, and perhaps fog for the city. Pure EGA colors really scratched some nostalgic itch. Enjoyed this entry the most.
rulezadded on the 2013-01-20 10:40:17 by paulius paulius
chcp 437 didn't fix it.

Interesting rendering.
I don't really like the music, curious to hear what was the first soundtrack!

Great work overall.

Start a command prompt, go to the directory where you have installed the demo. Then, run "mode con: cp select=437", and then, while in the same command prompt, run the demo.

Fuck yes, a 64k retrofuture textmode demo!

should have won - because of the size and the so funny adlib-type of sound! ha!
