Nice 80's feleling. Seems highly inspirated from retrowave by Florian Renner even for the title. Well done but please give credits next time.

Super cool, very "outrun" styled. The music fits very well and the lead synths gives it the additional "noir" overtones the style needs.
Just a minor thing: the car wheels don't seem to spin in some closeup shots.

The 80's VHS style perfectly recreated, a very fitting music, a delorean, and the demo itself fitted to the demoparty's theme... to be continued ? I want to see the rest !!!

*visually
Well-executed rendition of an aesthetic that is a bit overdone by now.

You're right Ok3anos ! We talked about that during the party, but totally forgot to credit Florian Renner. Thank you to remind us this important information ! I just added his name in the youtube video description and we are updating the nfo contained in the zip file.

Not bad at all! The "synthwave" isn't my thing at all, but this is quite completently mad, if a bit underdeveloped. The music at least def could use a bit more punch.

Also work on your VHS simulation ;)

~15fps, weak music dunked in reverb (and I actually kinda like synthwave), one scene.

Ok now it works. Looks shiny and all but left me cold. Maybe the scanlines should be under the bloom blur?

I don't like to over compress my music just to follow the actual fashion and loose all dynamics.
If really needed, you may find a volume slider on a device near you... ;)

it looks like total clone of Miami Nights 1984, I like the video too but.. even the first scene with vhs effects is the same.. I had the same plans - to make something with that idea, but not a clone... some cameras are the same too

A solid runner-up in the car-driving-by-itself-through-a-city category, behind passing only (which covered the autobahn / concrete jungle angle of this trope); that this is yet another de-facto remake of a vimeo video is a bit disheartening, but then again, there's no ounce of originality in this concept anyway. A final with more content and a cheesy sax solo (and/or arpeggio riffing) would be neat. :)

Doh always delivers, lovely sounds.

not bad, try vaporwave next time with more distortion. visually great retrostyling, music is not bad either ;)

Ironcally, I think it could use a lot more neon.

Tron meets Miami Vice :). Nice one.

looks great and well polished! perhaps a bit monotonic, but still really good and nice to watch :)

Very solid work on the overall mood.

Fine retro aesthetic if one is into that thing, but come on now. One flyby scene, 2D graphics ripped from the retro wave generator, bland music, worse VHS overlay effects than what we saw over a decade ago (X-Mix 2004 anyone?) .. Sorry, no.

Even if not fully "original", I really like the result !

...even if not much content for a full demo it's great ! Especially the sound...atmosphere reminds me also on the movie 'drive'

Best 80's retro-lazer design execution i've seen in a demo.
Started with nice scenes but lacks variety. To be continued it says.
Me wants!

I like the visual style, regardless of how many times it's been done/used before. The music generally fits the theme, but I have to say that most instruments could do with a little EQ'ing and less reverb. I really dig the lead instrument with the pitch bend, though. Given it's a demo, I think a little more time could have really made this little star shine. The thumb still goes up for the work and the cool lead instrument ;-)

short and sweet!
although you show too much of how the whole thing is done in the end, which destroys the illusion a bit. ;)
anyway, hope there´ll be more then! ;)
Hint: open the car-doors...Delorean-Style ofcoz! :D

Great design! Car looks ace. Music sounds authentic. I like the pitchbend detail in the lead.
