Mh...
- Some parts might look better in mode 1
- Felt like a slideshow at some times. Speed up your flow !

Anyway, even as a slideshow, this would deserve a thumb, and, some good coding work here as well.

Very interesting slideshow with very nice transitions and original effect
However, I am not fan of the themes of the gfx, but it change nothing to the quality of work

I thought I'd see a cool cpc demo, but I watched a small movie !!

Plus version only has better colours. No other tricks I think are used..

Cool demo. Regret it doesn't work on the 3" original...
rulez added on the 2013-06-08 20:23:50 by Supersly Supersly
Really nice art and cool transitions, but it felt a bit slow.
(Probably because nice artsy font are hard to read so you need to leave them longer on screen?)

nice x-over of slideshow and demo!

By far your best production, great amount of work. But really slow effects.

Phortem will leave its mark on the CPC scene and the whole retro-scene in general.
Clearly, a killer demo that puts CPC over other platforms on the visual aspect.
This demo exploits the visual richness of the CPC much better than any other CPC demo. In fact, the design and style reminds me of the Amiga demos '96-98.
It is also an good example of the power that the trackmo concept can give to the CPC.

Congratulations to Condense and thanks for the nod. :)

I already notified them in Fix me beautifull, looks like they are lagging.. ;)

Message to all: the best thing you can do is to consider this prod as an enhanced slideshow! Ced completely deserves it :)

Some really nice gfx and a cool tune.
The big angel/devil girl scroll is pretty cool.
The batman picture is rad!

:\ alas the whole thing fell more like a slide show.
The theme and "poetry" are not my c\~/ either, but the whole things shows skills and craft.

Impressive amount of graphics. Are they original or reworked transferts?

Just keeps piling on more pixel art and impregnable decorative slogans with unique and overly elaborate transitions between. Cracks me up, I love it.

Very good prod, especially transitions effects totally new on CPC.
Rulez!
rulez added on the 2013-06-09 20:32:21 by Kris Kris
The amount of art in this demo makes me happy. So do the numerous transitions between screens. There are even some effects, which although too slow, they look impressive in front of background graphics. I am curious how this would look like if it could be boosted up in a CPC-Trex.

What a great surprise!

Pretty massive, but it just wasn't enjoyable. Colors were too stark and the music was bland, not to mention the pacing was SLOW.

finally the cpc gets the gfx it deserves, would like it more with some killer effects, still awesome production if I look at it as a slideshow.

rulez added on the 2013-06-12 12:51:59 by Queen_Luna Queen_Luna
Awesome demo. Lovely effects - especially the twister and scroller against the background, usage of palette, etc. I loved the fact it was loading in the background, but it's a shame the music slows down when the disk isn't fast enough (which seems to be the case in WinCPC) - as the music doesn't seem like it needs to be exactly in sync with the visuals.

But yeah, definitely awesome! Love it! :)

Nice graphics with unusual color mix on Amstrad (even if I'm not fond of this overexploited theme!). Very interesting effects too (but pure software displaying make sometimes them too slow).
Congratulation for this big work!
rulez added on the 2013-06-12 17:26:52 by Hicks Hicks
I agree with Hicks. I am not fond of the plasma and really dislike the flipping on the Batman screen (flickers like hell on my real cpc), but the rest is excellent ! The music is nice too, especially the second part. Thanks for this great work !

If only all slideshows had as many and as good transitions and effects as this! GREAT!
rulez added on the 2013-06-14 01:12:46 by Hoild Hoild
WOW!
eventho the framerate sucks a lot (hope this is only in the youtube) this is a piece of art for sure!
all those "transitions" are fantastic.
a bit too colorful maybe, had hard times reading the texts, but its CPC, aight! ;)

let´s hear what Ozzy says about it:
"what? ....tiny bubbles? ...but....i am the fucking Prince of Darkness!"

The twister over the dragon's picture and the infinite zoom are my favorite parts. The demo flow is sometimes broken because of too many static screens and the music is not synched with it. Anyway, well done Condense!
