I thought the use of the shadow in the last scene was excellent.

Very interesting for a flyby. Great atmosphere, and wha Zavie said about the shadow.

Great introduction. i was like "yay, a story driven demo". But somehow it ended a little early. gfx and modelling were ace though.

Congrats guys!

Great style, colors and overall feeling, but too short.

That scanline just kicks ass! :) Really nice demo. The only thing missing: a text, or a fadeout, or something that “exits” the demo at the end.

Great demo tho!

Looks amazing and very atmospheric and the music fits the visuals perfectly. The demo ends a bit abruptly though...

"I was set upon this world to try and Outtrack you but THIS is what I've become."

Very nice how you turned a 2.5D ride into a fullblown 3D one.
SOlid reference to to Beyond the Walls of Eryx
I thoaught it was a nice gesture that ASD was greeted first.

Well that ended right when I started to get excited about the story...

Yes. Same here as Gargaj..
Until there it was very atmospheric, now unfinished?

Yes, great atmosphere as said. And ended abruptly.

Lovely little demo, I really liked the ambience, and especially the ending scene with "walking ghosts". There was more poetry in this single scene than in any demoscenepoetry-demo released <3

great but too short
rulez added on the 2013-08-19 22:13:45 by Grz- Grz-
@Cons (and others) : All in all, one of the reasons why the demo is short is that I wanted to make it short. Maybe the frustration of the viewers is more related to the lack of polish at the end of the demo than to its actual duration?
@numtek : Wow, I am AMAZED how precisely you were able to understand our initial intention. 'Within the Mesh' meant precisely to be a first person extrapolation of the ASD original demo. We tried to find the right balance between a rip and a citation, between a story-driven sequence and an abstract ride. I'm glad you were able to appreciate that :)
@uncle-x, @Canopy : Unfinished or sparse ? Yes, indeed, the end of the demo would deserve more work, something that increases the pace and the tension during the last seconds :')
@a-move : your comment about the logo display goes directly to my heart :)
Thanks everyone for the cool feedback!

great prod.

Indeed a bit more tension in the very end could have been cool, but it works well as it is imho.
The only thing for me: maybe the greetings would have been better in another moment (like the credits), to preserve the mood.

Congratz!

Lovely atmosphere, lovely crystals, lovely concept.
rulez added on the 2013-08-20 12:26:06 by Preacher Preacher
Dream-team! :-)

The prod is a bit short (2 min 30 is not enough for a slow-paced fly-by which includes a 30 seconds static screen as intro) ;

From an aesthetic point of view it's perfect, music integrates well !!

Cool, but where's the over half? :)

It reminds me of equally inconclusive 3ds mega-mesh walk-through demos of the 1990s / early 2000s, though this is a lot slicker and more polished looking, due to its "first-person version of Walls of Eryx" thing, which is pretty interesting too (which in turn is a reference that I never noticed).
added on the 2013-08-21 09:07:55 by tomaes tomaes
by the way, i think the length of this demo is properly set, despite everybody complaining.
added on the 2013-08-21 09:26:08 by blala blala
I also like the length. It manages to say everything it needs in it, the unresolved ending writes itself in the head of the viewer, or at least it did in mine :). I actually think it leaves a stronger impression this way.
added on the 2013-08-21 09:30:49 by noby noby
I think more people should follow the example set by this prod. Set the mood, let the concept sink in, but don't overstay your welcome. IMO, perfect length.
added on the 2013-08-21 09:36:23 by kusma kusma
Nice and all, but, uhm, where's the rest of the demo?!

A subtle production which creates an atmosphere very sucesfully, i like the music and mood, and those shadow figures were great.

I had missing graphics like in http://i.imgur.com/WzFoUvb.jpg ...

http://pastie.org/8306405 for its engine_log.txt file (missing shaders?).

Maybe it is because of my very old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 with its ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB; PCIe; driver v9.4 since newer drivers cause Windows XP's clock to slow down with DVI and rare, random hard lock ups with videos, etc.). I had to use non FSAA, 1280x1024, no HDR, etc.

Overall, it was OK.

Naah, that can't possibly be related. At all. No no. No way.

The weird pseudo-holographic effect, the handling of the surreal landscape -- great.
Storyline not so great, but eh.
The subtitle font was a bit too bold and the titles themselves could have used a little copyediting, but ignore the pedant (me) on that. ( ;

With a small change to the end sequence it would feel much more consistent and without this "what next, is that already done?" feeling, but nice work anyway :)
