i'm giving this thumb up only with limitations. i think the speech is a bit overdone, it's cool in the very beginning, but all the credits and the greetings spoken ain't good. also, the demo gets less interesting towards the end.

Very nice and cool.

Seriously, it seems as though everyone is back this days...

Anyhoo, this demo is nicely polished but seems to lack something. Nothing overly eyecatching, and the colours, or lack thereof, didn't impress me. One thing I totally disagreed with was the voice.

I haven't seen the other demos yet but this one is awesome. Stylish look, lots of interesting effects and scenes, very effective glare rendering, nice music with perfect synch.

A cople things are overdone, like the synthspeech, but still the best demo I've seen for a long while.
rulezadded on the 2002-08-04 21:51:55 by Jare Jare
great work guys! effects were fresh and music was great. as i already mentioned at the party place, i would have liked to see more graphics, but this is still excellent. (you forgot to greet us. hihi :D)

Good work guys

Not bad at all, although the design is a bit dirty for my tastes it deserves the thumb up. I liked a lot the ending of this one. In the begining it is a bit boring.

I would have liked this but directly cloning an Imatran Voima song (In/Out? for the first half) doesn't please me much no matter how much you "respect" them. (The second part of the song wasn't IVO anymore - but that certainly didn't help much in this case ;))

I've watched most of the demos/intros of this years Assembly and this one is the one i like most. Can't say if it is better than the one from Haujobb, because - for me - it's a completly different style here. When it comes to design, i would have used that "We are BACK" more often (e.g. after the calm greetings-part, when the music start to get faster again), because it somehow adds some "dramatic feeling". A great demo!

rulezadded on the 2002-08-09 00:18:29 by JaK JaK
nope. we just wanted to create a(n 'obushow') demo with elements that have something to do with interference and glitter backed up with an elektro soundtrack.

thanks for _all_ the comments, we'll produce something different next time.
added on the 2002-08-09 01:30:21 by funktion funktion
seen it again, and going to give some more comments

- Kudos to the artist/designer for making the interference/color palette used so stylish. It creates a kind of a dark/technologic mood that i've seen in very few demos
- Music is brilliant and allows some excellent synchronization
- Demo is long, and manages to have long parts that don't get boring, we are still trying to achieve this ;)
- Code has some cool effects
- I like the synth voices
- Overall, one of the best (if not the best) demo this year.

My favourite demo @ assembly'02. Didn't Haujobb boys say something "the Kewlers should have won" or something like that? err.. anyway, a great demo.
rulezadded on the 2002-08-12 10:03:28 by jasuy jasuy
Well, droid/hjb said something about the moral winners of the compo, but as i said before, i say it again, haujobb won fair and square. Their demo just simply was more beautiful, and it had some treu 3d scenes instead of plain 3d objects etc.

As for the rest of the comments, thank you for the pos. and neg. feedback. This was an attempt to make something more mainstream than usual, but still keeping it "kewl" :D. Next up is coming something completely different.
added on the 2002-08-12 10:16:13 by kurli kurli
why didn't this win? =)

feels quite different than most other demos of today.. has a nice feeling to it..

and yes, haujobb did have a nice demo this time, but it looks just like the rest of their productions. I liked this one much better.

very appealing.
a kind of drug, i had the urge to watch it daily since assembly.

it has its clever way of using opengl to create coherent visuals..
very dense soundtrack switching from time to time from electro to psytrance. graphics are styled ..
definitely not a cliche, just a mature demo defining its style..
-- for the idm touch at the end still i liked it the first times.

probably one of the best demos of the year.

Very tight design, every part is coordinated. The music kicks. But the strobe flashes and camera changes to every beat get rather annoying. What does it say after the greetings? something something starts next door?

Great visuals and the demo would have been a rock-solid performance if it wasn't for the crappy elektrobeat the soundtrack had. Otherwise the music kicked, but the beat just plain sucked.
rulezadded on the 2003-05-02 01:18:03 by Kootal Kootal
Music isn't my personal cup, but it damn rocks on loud sound systems (like Breakpoint's one). The demo has style, but i usually loose focus in the last minutes : a little too long and always the same. Great demo anyway ! Very nice work in term of design and flow.

Well, the first few minutes were dominated by cold colours, boring effects and lack of a consistent theme. But the demo became decent after the greetings were displayed - especially because the colours became sensible.

Perfect sync with one of the best soundtracks I've heard in years... I show all my friends this one, and my oldschool b-boy friends especially go crazy over the music. Effects are also well-executed and continue to build and build throughout. I like the voice at the beginning, although the voice used for the greets could use some tweaking. Definitely deserving of the awards its received -- it's a crowd-pleaser that respects demo roots.

Few beats after the vocoder introduction, you know that those guys are masters of black art coding, graphics & music. Demo of mass-destruction.

P.S. I like the effect of constantly exploding surfaces, with the stylish guy in the background.

It often happens this way: at first, it seems to me that it's just another demo with weird design and half-pleasant music. Then something switches on and I just realize that I'm actually watching and enjoying an awsome piece of art, with much personnality and atmosphere in it. Variform exactly matches these words.

Jeu. This IS actually Variform. Before I got into the scene again after 13 years of nitty gritty punk rock I was warned about this one. And I kinda like it. And I didn't expect to. Mainly because of the music. Which is cool. So here's my thumb.

this is hard to judge.. the soundtrack has it's moments, but the sounds could've been mixed a bit better to avoid the dry lead sounds. some scenes were pretty fantastic, and others just quite bland imo.. but i suppose i'm comparing this to the later kewlers (and mfx) demos way too much. nice heads :P anyway, a piggie it is.

Long overdue thumb here. Used to think this is vastly overrated, bad even, but I think everyone's first impression of this is that they either love or hate it. Kewlers have always been good, and always will be. Even though this is a rather traditional in style, there are all sorts of little details on how the objects move, rotate, and behave in general. Same think with the camera paths. Color scheme could be improved a bit maybe, and as of now it is a bit dull and monotonous but the visual impression is still very good. I don't think I can say anything more about the music, it's a classic. In short, the pinnacle of demos of this style.
