Loved this! Should have ranked higher in my opinion.

A nice idea, gorgeously executed. Music reminds me somewhat of Super Mario 64's "Dire Dire Docks" ;)

This one won the compo. srsly.

Ok, this is the best noby&fizzer co-op thus far. It's also one of the only 8k's that feel like a real 8k besides that loonies prod. we all have seen already. Especially the ending, even if you could kinda see it coming, was worth the wait.

With the wait, I mean the precalc.

I like it - and nice sound!

The particles and dof(?) in the fish swarm and in a few other places does become a bit confusing for me eyes though.
A really nice ending!

Incredible work! ❤️ Baffled it only got third tbh.

the star constelation thing felt a bit forced. but the particles looked awesome and the sound is fucking noby

Beauty, esp. the music and it's calm parts (not that it was too fast paced anywhere)

Very enjoyable !!!

long precalc is very long and of course this runs slow as fuck on my 1060 (read: 12-16fps), but hey its the most beautieful thing i ever saw in this category. makes me wonder where a little more bytes and optimization/coherence could carry it.

Awesome, guys, congrats on your well-deserved vict...

...Oh fuck you, Evoke. Fuck you in your useless eyesockets. :|

Anyway, this might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it sure hits all the right marks. It's gorgeous, technically sound, poetic, and paced well. All in 8k. I loved it! I'd rewatch it again and again and show to my friends. None of the other prods managed to do so well being four to eight times the size. What a crying shame!

By the way, I expected the nautilus and other sea inhabitants to turn into some kind of constellations at the end, but the odd angular doodle things left me confused. Please explain. :) Was that due to the lack of... space? (Shit, I swear that was unintentional.) The music also felt very reminiscent of Dropletia which, curiously, also was released at Evoke. Same instruments, I suppose? Or was it a deliberate development of that general idea?

Yes and no. A few second stem that this track was based on I originally made in June, that was using some of those instruments (notably the DX7 Rhodes and tambourine). The original inspiration was to use the basis from this track (absolutely amazing album btw, please give it a listen... it's on the youtubes) and try to develop something of my own out of it, which I finally did a week before the party. A lot of the sounds are slightly modified though of course to fit them better for a different mix, and a lot of new sounds as well. I saw no motivation to overhaul them completely since I already had my ideal "aquatic" sound palette =)

Also the song in Dropletia was made based on this short composition I had written a year earlier: https://twitter.com/nnnnoby/status/800689054941609984

Soundcloud, including download, for the music in this intro.

The line doodles are supposed to be constellations, but I kinda ran out of time to make the concept work out in a better way.

Also, it is in fact the ancient and extinct ammonite that I tried to recreate. It is similar to the nautilus but is more closely related to likes of the squid and octopus of today. The main visible difference is that ammonite shells are ridged, whereas the shell of the nautilus is smooth.

Sweet. Apparently one of the guys from that band is Hiroyuki Nanba, whose Armitage III soundtrack was one of my go-to examples of solid anime music for a good while, along with (the more obvious but no less talented) Yoko Kanno and Kenji Kawai. I'll give it a listen or two, thanks. :)

As for this track in particular, the only part I found possibly a bit odd is the sequence at 2:26. It's a bit drier than the rest... or something like that, hard to explain since I suck at music theory. Makes it fall out of the composition a bit for me. The rest is great though.

Love the vibe, the ambience, the visuals and the sounds.

what moozooh said: fuck you evoke. this is way better than both 64ks together. (you really forgot to add voice samples to your track, noby! ;p)

no more left to say.

OK, now I finally have enough glöps to give you my cdc for this impressive, imo your best production and imo also the best production of Evoke 2018. there is really a lot of love here. Especially for an 8k with a huge amount of content and as complete as a full fledged demo.

(And again: I really wish you won the compo)

Please include a readme to tell your audience if the precalc runs like forever. :)

Of course it's very good. The music reminds me of Super Mario 64.

Really nice and sophisticated for 8k.
Music is indeed "inspired by" but more important than this, it sets the mood perfectly.
