Been a while since I've been genuinely impressed by a 4k - not necessarily technically (even though is of course competent), but artistically this is brutally on point. The direction / cinematography / pacing / music / everything is polished to excellence.

fucking great! nice idea, great execution + 4k. well done!

This will end up in the lists of the best demos and 4ks in 2016. I looooove that camera and the tension the music does, damn it's gooood <3

Fucking nice. Like gargaj said, the camerawork and editing is on fucking point, and the lighting is fantastic too. Extra kudos also for motion blur. My only problem I guess is that it tries to look too much like "real world", but the geometry is a bit too primitive, thus diminishing the illusion. The sound also works very well direction and editing-wise, despite being somewhat primitive sounding.

extremely well done, what gargaj said. awesome camerawork
rulez added on the 2016-02-21 19:22:35 by cupe cupe
Impressive and fun to watch!
Also, interesting to see Gargaj changing his mind about the story in tiny intros (or was that about the "message" ;))

Just to be fair: cheese and cliche is just exploding on screen in this one, but yeah, it's still cool/fun, no worries :)

Oh, WOW! That was an awesome experience. Fantastic work with the music and of course the direction/story. I really can't say I've seen a 4k with this great pace and story before. I have no clue about technical quality, but the music and changes and especially the camera-movements are simply perfect! Extremely well done, and well deserved 1st place!

great camera work, great explosion & laserrs, great soundtrack.
But imho the cheap look of the starship (compared to the rest) kind of downgrade the experience from "perfect prod" to "great prod".

Love this so much!. I really love the previous 4k intros from 0x4015 but this latest one just confirms for me he is one of the best producers of modern windows 4k prods. Also the percussion sounds from this 4k synth are amazing and that backwards sound at the end!

Now, please make a 一面ボス, or a 弾幕 version to put the whole アーケード ゲーム experience in to.

OMG we got a winner :) Probably one of the best 4K i saw.
I love the moment when then sand morphs into a cavern and the opposite at the end (and the sound it make when it happen). The rest is pure bliss. I would really like to see a "making of".
rulez added on the 2016-02-22 17:41:09 by Tigrou Tigrou
This is fantastic. Maybe not mind blowing on the technical side, certainly good though. But what really shines here is obviously the story and the build up. I don't think I've seen a 4k with a story this well put together before.

Also, seeing the evolution of your work, it looks like you are not even close to reaching your full potential yet. I'm really looking forward to watching your future prods.

When watching the party stream I thought this was a full-size demo. Maybe the size was shown on the info page but I didn't see it. But I was like, wow, this is something that even a gamer might appreciate. Then I came to Pouet and... 4k?? wtf

Great music and synth by the way. Is the compute shader all the music takes? How much x86 machine code and data is there for music? I'm thinking, if you can squeeze music like this, with the synth and everything in well under 1kB, then 4klang might become obsolete quite rapidly.

Wellll.. back when I coded 'gateways', I first saw it at full framerate in the compo, because my PC was too slow for it.. =) so seeing stuff at full framerate isn't precisely a requirement for developing it.

I think the FM sounding music is nice, with rich timbres, not cheap and hollow like 4klang tunes often are. I also like the rhythmic patterns that feel a bit polyrhythmic at times. The over steep swing in some things is awkward though.

I rewatched this. The moment when the structure emerges from the sand... un-fucking-real.

I still prefer the one you released last year, but this one is totally epic, and the explosion rulez! :D

Cool on a home PC, but truly awesome on a big screen with suitable audio system (like when this was screened at Revision :))

Love the little bit of narrative you managed to squeeze into 4k!

Also, this ran fine back in June but I just tried to run it today and it silently fails to run. Anybody else having this problem? I assume it's a Windows thing (Win10 64bit).

Haha incredible how everything is procedural but makes sense in this 4k :D
