The soundtrack rocked, but the demo itself felt a bit uneven, with a lot of parts looking unfinished.

Agree with Britelite in that a lot of the parts seem unfinished / empty.
However, it's all in all quite Kool and the music and graphics are of course ace. :)

Fabulous demo, FD have just pushed everything up a notch. I've always liked FD demos but they have usually had this, "a collection of effects" feeling to them this demo feels really thought through and that the code, music and graphics has been created together where one thing feeds another and the whole thing develops more organically. I love the timings and the transition effects that are visible all over the production, its like taking a good things from the OCS demos shown in the compo and mixing it with 060 effects.
rulez added on the 2015-08-24 10:26:03 by bonkers bonkers
Awsome! I love general sync, ideas and music. This stuff is great!
Thank you Focus Design.

not such a big fan of the AGA 3d stuff but the 2d parts were really nice.
the soundtrack is a killer and probably made this win =)

I agree with britelite and wtf.device, it seemed like an attempt at "Smoke Bomb" style design but not quite getting there. That said, this was a very fun and entertaining demo with a super soundtrack, thumbs up high.

Hi all. Thanks for the really nice feedback! This is merely an attempt to make a feel-good demo, that even your kids can watch. It all sort of just developed into this thing along the way, without looking that much at what others had done before. Well, ok - the "Popjunkie grid"-inspiration is superobvious, but other than that we just came up with something that the great music inspired us to do. And when Optic invented that mustache-koolguy-character, it just made sense to use him as a recurring figure.

Awesome! When watching the demo I really hoped that was the source of inspiration (and the music in that part seemed fitting as well)! :D
@Slummy: yeah, it's such a beautiful effect you created there! My version is calculated via 2 layers of sines and then it was a boring job connected the dots that the sinelayers consist of :-D. But I gladly admit that I sat and studied the look and feel of your version (the grid size is identical :-D ).

The music and graphics alone are enough for a thumb. The demo itself could have used a bit more polishing. Somehow gets boring, although I don't know why.

Is Esau the best musician currently active on Amiga? Quite possibly. Nice demo guys!

The visuals are a bit of a mixed bag, some scenes are brilliant and some scenes are a bit plain. However, the sync is mostly great and the soundtrack is truly inspired. More demos with music of this calibre are needed!

Oh, and I forgot to mention the rotozoomer.
Guys, that was a terrific way to use this tiresome effect, simply terrific.

Fresh and funky. Very good pixels, fat beats and mostly well effects. Corial: Nice to see you got the walking 3D dude you mentioned at Trsac 2014.

Killer soundtrack and very nice graphics!

But seriously, is this real .mod or some strange shenanigans? Sounds too good to be your normal .mod, and I've been unable to rip the tune from the demo using WinUAE's magical tools.

sounded like marketing music..shopping tv for kids..
looked like 90s..but lacked any deepness..

focus design should take their own advise.

The music and sync sell it hard, but I'm not seeing the part that requires an 060. Do I need one to run this on real h/w?
I've read that it runs quite ok on ACA 1233 68030/40.

Well, apart from being quite attractive in order to watch it again, this demo looks for me somewhat 'too oldskoolish' feel, while it is not oldskool at all. I've taken an experiment, run it in winuae with intentionally slow CPU settings and now I think that all those oldskool-looking effects are actually done in chunky. This is somewhat not cool for me -- only for me.

Of course, that all is just my opinion and I realize that I might be wrong with my conclusions.

Nevertheless, the demo has perfect gfx, nice music and looks good (at 060 speed, heh :)

Great tune, fab pixels. The demo relies heavily on fast sync and cuts - but it stutters and glitches where it matters, at least on my miggy.

Runs great on my Cd32 Sx32 Pro, 30/50 fpu 68882/50 but for some unknow reason crashes at the end.
Anyway great demo, feels like '90 ;)
Is that a party or final version ?
