Rules. Oddly enough, I really liked the background...

Very stylish, the ink-rendering is very well done and realistic-looking (well, as realistic as a floating, morphing blob of ink can be...)

Pro. Also dune.

I love this one, great visuals and tune. Putting a single spinning object in the centre of the screen for the whole demo is a bold move, but it works :D

Interesting looking rendering too. The way it ripples is great, but i was surprised to see long thin spikes in there without artefacts. New technique?

What a pleasure to watch! The days of the rotating cube are over.

I'm amazed that Fairlight is around for 28 years but still have not figured out how to properly enumerate the graphics device to show all supported screen resolutions. Sorting them by size would be nice too. The effect is nice but the framerate is quite poor for what is shown. 2560x720 and 2560x1024 exist, but 2560x1600 is missing?

I'm not sure what's going on behind the scenes here but it's starting to reach a point for me where the visuals can't compensate for the frame rate anymore :|
added on the 2014-03-21 02:18:15 by Gargaj Gargaj
Sadly I must agree.
Framerate is a little low, yet visually the blob-thing looks absolutely wicked.

Kind of what Gargaj said. Still, it looks slick and the soundtrack was just excellent, so thumb up definitely.

I agree about the frame rate. Doesn't even run smoothly on a GTX 780.
added on the 2014-03-21 08:39:46 by raymon raymon
Framerate is just fine if you have an up-to-date GPU. I'm missing a 2560x1440 video-mode, though. But good stuff.

Dune! Yay!
rulez added on the 2014-03-21 09:40:12 by tFt tFt
So many nice touches all over, and what a soundtrack - wonderful demo.

Raimo: that's a little odd - my GTX 690 pulls this demo off quite well.
rulez added on the 2014-03-21 09:47:11 by gloom gloom
Looks really good!
Drags on for too loong (for my taste)
I like the production value of the music, but there are several melody shifts that I don't really dig.
I havn't got proper hardware to run this in an acceptable resolution, so I'm judging from the video.
rulez added on the 2014-03-21 10:21:33 by Puryx Puryx
superb visuals. soundtrack is meh.
i will rewatch this a few times on mute :)
rulez added on the 2014-03-21 10:39:49 by Maali Maali
the transforming object is extremly beautiful and polished, no doubt.
but all in all the show is a tad too static for my taste.

but what i really enjoy is the great soundtrack. i'm quite suprised that it's done by dune, 'cause it's definately a new handwriting. a more accessible style with a pop appeal (some passages remind me of "the nonstop ibiza experience").
rulez added on the 2014-03-21 10:41:26 by a-move a-move
the invit do the job, and I like the "glenz-vector-like" object on the bottom-right corner :D

ho, and it's always nice to hear a new Dune soundtrack! <3

Don't like it. Unreadable text (is this an invitation or what?). One effect in 33 Megabytes that requires DirectX 11 (so I can't run it on my system at all). Is this effect so big and colourful? No. You can blame me but I don't vote for names.

Complaining about DX11 in 2014 when the last Windows version not supporting DX11 is about to phase out in a few weeks is sooooooo 2001.
Single effect and not even half way readable text. Sorry, no.

In my view it's an unengaging, nu-media-ish, screensaver-y, sterile, static, dull advertisement. It has all the charm of a last minute "plan-b" business product, rushed out in time, but in the end merely a shadow of what it was originally supposed to be.

That being said, it's still cool that they put something out at all. It's not like they had to. :)

Hmm, the demo is DX11 yet requires msvcp100.dll from the 2010 redistributable? I have the latest 2012. Is it available separately? x64.

@Photon: So, the VC++ runtime is no problem. But you probably lack a SM5.0 (aka DX11) compatible graphics card (GTX400 or newer)...

Music sounds nice, quite weedy, but If I had a smoke in front of it, I would not be taken by the demo in. Do not dig the main fonts, neither. Too "american collage of xyz state".
