Very awesome. I love the overall polished and consistent look you achieved there.

A little too much orange/blue for my taste... but heck, it works!

Enjoyable. Some very nice visuals and the tune fitted nicely. Really liked some of the PP effects too (and the particles).

Well, let us get this out of the way first:

Magic: Andromeda!! Amiga!!!!
Gloom: Go fuck yourself!

On a serious note: Great demo, enjoyed the effects.

for some reason this comment fits to almost all demos released at function:
slick fx perfectly synched to another great track by gloom

Good looking visuals (glowy depth of field or something) and some particles.

looks good. sounds good.

obviously very high visual (and aural) quality, but there's little new or interesting here and it doesn't do anything for me

Stebo: i havent even commented yet.. LOL :)
In any means this is certainly not Andromeda.. The distance to the Andromeda galaxy is still to big to reach a nearby democompo :)
Mr.Hyde does it again though... respect!

really nice demo, great choice of colours and awesome sync. A really great one.

Extremely good looking and sounding, but the scenes really didn't do anything for me :(

I like the other Dead Roman releases a lot more, so I hope you will do some more of those.

Top of the compo for me. Some of the scenes look simply amazing.
rulezadded on the 2013-09-15 16:37:34 by kusma kusma
Oh wow! As cliche as it sounds, I loved that roating cube in what looke a bit like an Fractalius-effect. Some of the other scenes were very nice as well. Loved it on the stream even though it was just 40x40. It is better realtime :)
Indeed maybe a bit slow, but that is ok because the level of polish justifies this. Solid, thanks!

Lens flares done right. Ending could be better (not enough material for the duration of the track?). Runs amazingly well on older GPU tech too, which is a nice bonus.
rulezadded on the 2013-09-15 18:06:28 by tomaes tomaes
Best Function 2013 demo, imo :)
rulezadded on the 2013-09-15 18:27:06 by fra fra
Nice! Although boring on concept that isn't really the point - excellent rendering tech with very crisp visuals which is what we expect from Hyde. Realtime art in its truest form.
rulezadded on the 2013-09-15 19:26:54 by dv$ dv$
Wow. Looks and sounds really good. Especially the lens flares are nice.

Colour scheme, DOF and shading all look very nice, reminds me of an STS prod. I like the logo treatment as well.

The VHS bendy screen tearing effect looks like shit (especially at 20fps) and it's been done forever. It wasn't necessary when the rest of the demo is so clean and smooth. Otherwise, thumb.

The intro set a mood, and the dubstep ruined it shortly after.
Still, visuals and effects are really nice.

Wth did this only place 4th?! The DOF was odd somehow, everything blurred, no real focus plane...
added on the 2013-09-16 09:53:38 by raer raer
phew, some really fresh effects in here. maybe a bit disconnected, but that's no big issue. it's entertaining enough. the music is ... solid, but - quite unusually - i have to agree with cheri kandler: soulless.
rulezadded on the 2013-09-16 10:26:33 by a-move a-move
some really nice postpro dressing up a very clean-looking implementation of some "standard demo" content is enough for a thumb up.

btw, 4th - is that placement now automatically filled in for all dead roman demos on partymeister or something?

I liked this one best out of the function demos (and it's by far the best dead roman demo so far). It's perhaps not the most advanced, but it's the most polished somehow. It's got really good flow.

generic and soulless music.

Just catching up with Function now as I've been a bit tied up at the weekend. Srsly, if this is forth place I can't wait to watch the rest of them.

Great visuals and effects, slick sync and probably Gloom's finest demo tune to date.

Glitching and graphics were great... music wasn't my thing.

Fucking awesome. Sync parameters were slightly too small (should be 11+) compared to music but overall a fun trip.

What the heck? This only came 4th? Should have won. The flying cube in the volume-light kicked ass big time.

Sorry, but I have to steal this chromatic aberration effect :-)

best/most enjoayble dr demo yet and also the best of glooms tracks in the compos (in my book at least).

i cant see any relation to the previous prods tho, except maybe for having spheres in it. well, probably im not artsy enough to get it.

should have ranked higher (not that it would matter for gloom ;), thumb away!
