Welcome back to demoparties!

Great release, but I was a bit let down this didn't really measure up with your previous demo which is still one of my favorites on any 8-bit platform. Still, your amazing skill with color choices and pixel art is in full show here.

Quite different than your previous soft rendering demos, this time fullscreen smooth hardware stuff and also with great flow/pace.
Thanks also for the making off.

Oh my god, loved this one. Sadly it competes against our entry in the same compo, but there is no shame loosing to a demo as polished like this. Great work.

phX was an amazing experience for us, it's so nice to gather such positive feedback after working for years in the shadow...

So now some facts about the demo:
- a making-of is available ! please have a look above for the link. This is an high-level overview, 30+ pages .pdf format; if you really liked the prod I strongly suggest you to extend the experience with this lecture!
- 1 coder
- 5 years of development.... can't believe it's finally released
- traveled from Canada to Germany to present this at party-place !
- Condense did not present anything at parties for 15 years, now it's fixed :)

Thank you all and feel free to contact us for info etc.

Huge and dynamic "in-your-face" colourfull explosion of eye bursting awesomness.

Love the pixel arts, the dithered palette, the cube, the fast paced smoothness of quite frankly everything. don't have time to get bored and all scrolltexts are actually easy to read.

Music was a nod to Batman Begins at some points and hope this demo will have the same destiny.

Thumbs and dick up !!!

Good one.. Jocking. I didn't read the nfo before running it, just I saw that incredible screenshot, I say myself, go find a CPC, select that new logo with CRTC 1 and make a coffee. All this colorfull demo in perfect fullscreen on the CTM-644-2 just amaze. The music as well, I loved the whistle part a lot.. Fantastic demo. Did you saw that plasma?? CPC FUCKING RULEZ!!

I was about to say that Condense had released stuff less than 15 years ago, but when I checked the released date for Barbitoric (in which Jylam participated - thus the Condense logo), it was indeed in 2003 :D

Nice graphics :)

As a ZX Speccy fan, I must admit, this blow my socks off. Visuals and effects are outstanding. I am sorry for the music which I found an mediocre AY stuff, heared many times before.

Is there a wink at batman forever on the music ?? ^^

A big amount of work and effects. Nothing to say more about the technical level, it was what I excepted from No Recess! Huge progress in CRTC's technics!

Imho rasters are sometimes too much and the Face Hugger's balls effect is not so interesting (or at least too long). But phX is a master-piece! Well done, guys!

I admit I never thought your demo would be as good as it is! I like the in-your-face effects, full screen, with a bit of an old-school touch with these rasters. The design is, as always with Ced, speechless. A great achievement.

particular remarks:

Thanx for the outstanding information in the nfo and the making-of!

Very polished and impressive demo. I am not a super fan of abusing of rasters, but most effects are really nice (especially in the last part) and the job to do that must have been huge. You can be proud of the result !

For me the most kickass release on the party (and that's with some great competition)! Fave moment is the up to 3-effect-switching with the checkerboard and Alcatraz bars, but it's the complete barrage and music that makes it so swesome :)
