Hi. I just want to say I love the music, definitely suits my taste at least. This is great for a first demo and I really respect a one-man show. I look forward to seeing your next release.

music was awful soundwise. maybe would work without all the cringy rhythm samples.
static as transition never works well. gave it a cheap feel.

Not bad at all for a first release.
I like the concept and the music really suited it. I like the slow paced direction and the music really fits in to that.

Really nice music! Visuals are okish. Overall not really bad but kinda boring to watch. Motivational thumbs instead of piggie for releasing your firstie :)

Drop the drums and the tune would work better.
I liked the tv-visuals and glitching a lot though. Ok one man show.

Great for a first prod, even greater for a one-man prod! I like the subtle sync, the slow pace and the distortions. Some of the colors were good, some a bit garish though. ;)

For my taste at least, the TV visual style doesn't really match up with the more modern raymarching effects. I couldn't get this discrepancy out of my head while watching this.

Hope to see more from you!

For the atmosphere!

Great first release. The style is however horrible - too 'artsy' for my taste. Drop the 'noise' transition and create some content and your almost there!

Looking forward for your next prod!

some scenes are actually quite nice. some other scenes are pretty darn ugly.

What an atmospheric debut! I'm really looking forward to your next release!

Congrats on the firstie. The effort shows :)

Btw, I thought the music was good. Nothing amazing, but it fit well with the atmosphere and definitely didn't take away from the demo, which is no small feat.

Thanks for all the comments guys! loved reading them. I'm glad a lot of you actually liked it :)

As for the content and colors, yeah I know there can definitely be a few improvements and I actually had a lot more planned. I'd say it needed about a week or so more to reach where I wanted it to. I basically ran out of time, and decided to just call good enough and release it. I just couldn't wait for the next demoparty :)

As for the music, glad some of you actually liked it :) I know there are some sound quality issues (especially in the video version). I'm not really a musician and just recently started learning how to make music, I originally wanted to have something more fast paced and interesting, but couldn't pull it off :) so I just went for an ambient backdrop to fit the visuals (and adjusted a lot of the scenes to fit the music), for that I think it did the job and I'm happy with the end result. That said, I'd love working with a real musician next time :) you can contact me at sohx1.demos@gmail.com if you'd like to collaborate.

@1in10 + @leGend - I added the drums to add some more excitement to the mix, basically didn't want viewers to fall sleep haha, and didn't think they sounded too bad (they are sounding much worse in the video version). I just tried a build with no drums, and surprisingly it does work quite well, some of the glitches feel out of place but I could have designed that differently. Too late now, but thanks for the feedback :)

I like the part 2:30 - 3:00

Nice firstie especially for a one man prod. Congrats.

I really enjoyed this, felt like a throwback to the mid-to-late-90s Halcyon / Orange stuff.

Thanks! @Gargaj @Preacher @RufUsul, I'll go check those halcyon / orange demos out now :)

I like it.

Obviously needs some more love when it comes to direction and (especially) music, but the overall look really works for me! What the other guys said w.r.t. the late-90s vibe.

a really nice first demo! good atmosphere!
rulez added on the 2016-01-14 18:53:30 by rez rez
Really nice music! And the visuals are quite OK too, but, as already said, a bit boring. Still, I enjoyed it, solid thumb up for this nice one-man show. :)
rulez added on the 2016-01-14 19:53:00 by StingRay StingRay
the music sounds kinda generated, which is interesting in a way..
visuals are partly a bit generic but overall really OK
motivational thumb goes up!

great atmosphere! visual setup is a tad boring, but the look itself quite okay =)

It's OK.

It hangs together, nice job. I like where you're going with the music, but I think everyone has heard these particular drum samples a few too many times. I'm looking forward to more from you!
rulez added on the 2016-02-07 07:06:44 by andr00 andr00
@andr00 Thanks! yeah, this was a bit rushed overall, Next one should be a bit more polished, and with some better drum samples hopefully ;)
added on the 2016-02-07 09:18:01 by sohx1 sohx1
Forgot to comment on this. I largely agree with legend regarding the music. The visuals are very enjoyable, in the beginning especially and then again towards the end. Nicely analog looking overall :)
rulez added on the 2016-02-21 21:51:04 by noby noby
Thanks noby :) Yeah, that whole cave section was a quick last minute addition, I probably could have made it look better.
added on the 2016-02-21 22:16:53 by sohx1 sohx1
I did not like the modulo repeating objects but other than that I liked the colours and analog feel.
