Interesting and enjoyable!

I was already wondering if it's broken but I guess it's just ugly.

Cool stuff! Some of the textures were a bit rough but really neat concept. Reminds me a tiny bit of Luminati.
Great bass synths in the soundtrack too.

The berlin-school music is a bit tepid, but I do like its somber harmonies. Some very nice looking visuals, especially around the one minute mark. Overall seems a bit rushed but enjoyed it nevertheless. Waiting for more :)

Enjoyed it. Feels biblical somehow.

Very nice looking visuals indeed, and the music is very good too.
I miss a tighter progression/sync though.

Looks like a random haujobb demo. I don't like that 90's rendering style. ;)

So this prod was made in odd hours during two or three weeks, one marathon weekend, and then a final push at the party which was interrupted by tempting good weather. kb had to learn to use Garg´s synth and write a tune in three days.

Lessons learned:
*Time pressure is good for pushing out ideas, but leave polishing time
*it is hard to sync when you are tired, pleasantly or unpleasantly tense, and surrounded by a loud environment
*When you need working music to motivate you as you wait for the tune, Knoeki is god
*Better living through chemistry, in moderation
*Working with a more experienced person vs having an unused track or working with a non-scene musician without the tool in front of you is a very good learning experience
*finishing the music and the demo in one weekend is hard/not a great idea for new folks but kind of a rush : D even if the final product is sorely lacking
*If you have a tendency to over-compress, work with an appropriately-paced temporary score if you don`t have music
*work out your timeline early, and stick to it
*don`t let the tool take over; stick to your guns
*tweak, donm't rework umpteen times
*small parties are AWESOME#
*Sceners are awesome
*This is the first time I really saw even a shadow of myself on the screen, because of the way the music worked with the visuals, sync was off, but there is something electric here that really motivated me to keep making demos
*Damn, people are nice and encouraging.

also, you have more room than you think you do, so go nuts. this was only 40k because BoyC.

enjoyed it too, and it's great to have a new music by kb :)

i like the music, but the visuals are just incoherent and most of them not so pretty. but with it running on the big screen i did get mesmerized into the scenes, so piggie it is.
I enjoyed the concept, music and atmosphere, but it leaves a lot of room for improvement/polish. Some of the textures/rendering and the typography at the end are plain ugly.

Still, looking forward to more!

Unfinished

started up more promsing, but then it got pretty year 2000 looking but nice contribution nontheless. the music delivers and makes this a solid thumb.

Random 90s Haujobb demo describes it pretty well. Nice music though.

Very promising. Nice parts.

nice, pleasant and refreshing. Also, really enjoyed chatting with Metoikos at the party.

The demo feels rather random to me, but I like soundtrack a lot

fuck me, this is badass! But that hand was weird a bit, but overall it is badass...especially that triangle hexagrid stuff :)

Wasn't too sure about some of the visuals either, but the overall package works well enough.

Some scenes are nice and interesting but most a bit messy with wild camera :) Nice music.
added on the 2015-05-23 22:02:00 by Serpent Serpent
For the music. Also visuals are interesting but I didn't get the point sorry...

Nice ideas & visuals, I'm just missing the polish -- lots of jerky motion, sudden changes of scenery, the hand doesn't move much... I couldn't find an overarching subject, but that's optional -- more smoothing alone will go a long way.
You're going in the right direction -- by all means keep going =)
Music is nice, to nobody's surprise ;)

Thumb up for the obvious amount of work, the music and the nfo's poem that really captures the essence of Outline.
Metoikos, we need more productions from you :)

Could have been more finished on all levels. Looks and sounds like a draft.

I like it. It has a special mood because it's in flow.
