Oh my, can't believe it! That's just awesome!

Very similar concept-wise to the 2nd stage boss, but the visuals are way more polished and work extremely well for me. What a stunner!

spine-tingling final boss fight in only 4k.... Great

It's always good to use an actor (a spaceship, an aircraft or something else) to make a flybay demo more interesting.

Awesome stuff, although the re-use of concept drags it down a bit for me.
rulez added on the 2017-04-16 11:28:02 by Kylearan Kylearan
It's a similar concept to previous productions from 0x4015 (two prior prods) but it still brought down the house! NEON EVERYTHING

No doubt, this is technically good, buts it feels like basically the same intro as Final Stage. Same story, different actors, less wow-moments.

Excellent direction. The final explosion effect really delivered. A worthy winner.
rulez added on the 2017-04-17 17:00:44 by cce cce
I was initially a bit lukewarm towards this, mainly because I felt it was just a rehash of the two that preceded it. Watching it again at the airport this def was winner material. The camerawork again is just insane, and you make it look so easy. Additionally this is one of the best examples of sense of scale in a demo production. Achieving something like this regardless of any restrictions takes a lot of care and effort, and the fact that this is in the 4k category just sweetens the deal. Congrats, again.
rulez added on the 2017-04-17 17:00:45 by noby noby
visually very nice and definitely crowdpleaser material as well.
deserves a place in the top 3 for sure.
rulez added on the 2017-04-17 17:14:56 by gopher gopher
Not as good as Horizon Machine in my opinion, but that's only preference.
Still very impressive for 4k, with some amazing visuals and okay music.

Epic in code and flow and direction...and storytelling, so the clear winner for me !!!
rulez added on the 2017-04-17 23:14:23 by Kuemmel Kuemmel
Actually, with this one I have the same problem as with 2nd stage boss - total cliché crowd pleaser. It's a solid job, but it is not what I am looking for at the demoscene. A piggy from me.
added on the 2017-04-17 23:37:26 by tomkh tomkh
i'm not sure if this should have won...but it is definitetly remarkable for 4k.

it's nice, a proper scifi action movie scene in 4k. too bad it's kinda ugly and uninventive apart from the direction.

Haha, me too. Those senselessly spinning buggers just want to show off. ;) It looked like a weird production oversight in an otherwise finely tuned (yet seemingly re-hashed) intro.
added on the 2017-04-18 19:46:11 by tomaes tomaes
Like its predecessor this works much better on a huge bigscreen+PA than at home :).
rulez added on the 2017-04-18 21:46:53 by Alpha C Alpha C
I don't get the fuzz about this. (Too) low performance for pretty standard rendering and content, and some quite random camerawork with all that senseless rotation (and near gimble lock flips), and being mostly a rehash of 2nd stage (which was imho much more solid with it's straight line approach). Feels too much an attempt to tack a "story" on a raymarched fractal flyby. Barely top 5 in THAT compo imho.
added on the 2017-04-18 22:11:55 by Psycho Psycho
The moment when the camera zoomed in while tracking the squadron is when I was sold. Then the explosion came.

Was this the best intro in the compo? I don't know.
Does it matter? In the grand scheme of things, probably not.

It was truly the clash of giants in front of our eyes.
rulez added on the 2017-04-18 23:07:43 by Gargaj Gargaj
Maybe not perfect (ships flying through seemingly solid elements!?) and also a very cliché plot that has been used elsewhere not too long ago, however the content stuffed in such a small package is incredible. It also looks and sounds really nice. And the explosion at the end is just the icing on the cake. Fantastic!
rulez added on the 2017-04-19 03:30:35 by SunSpire SunSpire
When I saw this at the party I thought
"Oh, 0x4015 is visiting Revision to pick his Meteoriks and made a remix of his intro to show something in the compo".
And there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. I just didn't expect it to win because "it's just the same again".
That being said it's of course also totally awesome again.

A bit disappointing that this was so similar to the last one, but it had great camerawork and a lovely glitch ending I can't help but love!

Also, super glad you could come out to Revision this year, but I didn't get the chance to meet you, so please come back next year as well :)
rulez added on the 2017-04-19 20:35:46 by ferris ferris
Again, good looking, nice sounding prod which has tons of content for a 4k. Bit similar to the two former intros but this one is my favorite from this "series". The glitch ending was the cherry on top.

Superb on the bigscreen
rulez added on the 2017-04-19 23:08:35 by noname noname
Eye-candy visuals, but the direction is not on par with 2nd Stage Boss. The bland, spherical "explosion" looks out of place, but the ending is cool.

Very entertaining overall and some of the scenes are really impressive. I just wish the design and model of the ships were more interesting (lack of space I guess) and the way they move more believable.

I felt a little disappointed because of the rehashing and the overall feeling of going for the lowest-hanging fruits, but it's still more than a solid work with competent direction and camera handling. Can we expect a sizecoded danmaku shooter at some point? :p

A worthy third part of a trilogy of sorts.

What others said is true tho: When you know its predecessors, the impact is somewhat diminished. It kinda feels like the story of 2nd Stage Boss transplanted into the world of Optical Circuit, and the music again feels more generated than actually composed - good enough but in contrast to some of the other 4k intros at Revision this was a letdown.

But all criticism aside it still looks gorgeous and people really shouldn't underestimate how hard it is to get a proper "story" into that size (turns out animation data really compresses worst of all), plus having enough bytes left for that ending and its effects. Well done. :)

Oh, yeah, it reuses the same concept as their previous intros, so what? It's a different piece, with its different code, different visuals, different soundtrack and, above all, equally as extremely good, if not even better than their other prods, and still in just 4 freaking KB. In short: Stunning and a well-deserved 1st place. Congratulations!
