I thought this was very well done, with the robot, the rooms and visuals, etc.

Somehow I was not amazed at all :/

Lots of content, yes. But it tries to hard to be a demo and never really accomplish that. The build up never really climax - no shooting from the guards or hectic direction - everything is the same slow pace, which I think is really a shame.

To be frank, I was bored :(

Sorry.

Usually I can't stand story or poem demos, because the stories and poems written by nerds tend to be pathetic and embarrassing, but this story demo was awesome.

I don't usually like that kind of prod, but this is the prod I remember the most of the compo.

Also, the technical work on the audio side is impressive.

This is rare example of complete and consistent production. It is impressive and very pleasent to watch and rewatch once again. You guys made 64k exciting once again. My favorite of the compo.

My favorite from that compo. Perfect match of story, direction, design and soundtrack. Not lengthy at all for me, you always want to know what's happening next
rulez added on the 2017-04-17 09:00:12 by Triace Triace
It's actually a little r2d2 story in 64Kb! Probably best animation/story I saw in a 64K so far. Also the soundtrack follows the action. I'm amazed you can pull this off in just 7-months.

One of the finest poo-brain releases to date! No cheap artifacts, no sight of overused beat-synching like in so many other demos and no glitches or overblurred images, just crystal clear visuals with beautiful lighting and reflections. Wow!

The slower pacing also works really well, it makes the scenes a lot more threatening. Although I kept hoping for the chasing wheel-both thingie to fire some lasers, sadly it didn't ;)

Keep demo-ing, poo-brain!

Loved it! The Woodlouse vs. The Robo-Scorpions! :D The soundtrack really helped to build the atmosphere too. A well deserved win IMHO <3
rulez added on the 2017-04-19 18:03:27 by raizor raizor
Damn that's a long demo :P

Visually it's not as impressive as engage by Logicoma, and the performance was pretty poor (got 24FPS at 720p on a GTX970)...

But I really like that it has a story to tell, I especially liked the second part with the chase scenes, even though the were pretty slow paced, they managed to fell pretty tense - the chasing robots felt like a real danger for the little guy. And the music really helped to sell all the emotions, perfect fit IMO.

Nice story intro! Only minor minor complaint is that the chase-scene somehow felt like it was going slowmotion all the time. Some faster movement perhaps would have given it a bit more nerve.

I enjoyed the build and the time-lapse clouds. But somehow (at least from the yt) I didn't get what happens to him at the very end. Does he become a planet or something? I don't have the decoder ring for PB Linear A ;) . Anyway, very nicely done! Do a sequel that mixes in a bit of the Frameranger punch :) .

I was wondering exactly the same thing. Here is what I think, please tell me if you reckon that I'm right or wrong:

At the beginning we see what appears to be a representation of a planetary system with an object glowing in yellow and a dotted line from a central point to it (or the other way around, since there is not an arrow indicating direction).

In the end, the round thingy shoots a green beam to that particular planet (or it's shot itself towards it, that bit is unclear to me but it seems that it expels energy through some kind of amplifier), and after that the map shows it glowing in that colour.

So, that planet could have been a threat (for instance, falling out of orbit somehow) or a target (perfect moment to create life on it, perhaps?)

In either case, the round thingy did its job, and so did poobrain, achieving their well-deserved 1st place. It's really amazing how they were able to make that simple round thingy feel like it had a soul into it. One of the best 64K pieces ever coded. Congratulations again!

Technically outstanding.

Has no soul, it's cold, it's sharp, clean. Don't get into the story, because it's trying to tell a story i don't still get.

Seriously, guys with your jaws being dropped - where have you been last 15 years??? There is nothing here that couldn't be done visually in 2000, may be with worse reflections (but with higher resolution on modern machines indeed).

But that's not my point.
I can see a HUGE amount of work put into this one. But there is no way i will want to watch this again, period. It's just absolutely flat and boring visually/design wise. Basically i have the same problem with modern 4ks - there is absolutely nothing catchy for your eyes, i have no idea why should i watch them.
It's not about shaders and tools, it's about the effort - there was an intro made 20 years ago, called jizz, that didn't try to be a movie and tell a story. Fuck stories. It was a great dance of polygons to some great music - and it still is, and i still watch it several times a year.

(Deserves a thumb indeed though.)
