Really enjoyed this. I wish I gave myself more opportunities to just watch the world go by IRL.

FYI though, gives a black screen when run in 2560x1080.

again not your typical demo. very atmospheric and good looking. awesome soundscape as well.

For the athmosphere

So delicate. The mood is great! Love the harmonies, when it explores chords there's always a surprising note.
(+10 points for the cat, way better than a dolphin or shark).
My favorite in the compo, by a fair margin.

Nagyon szép jelenetek vannak ebben a demóban, menő meg minden. Valamint éljen a post process.
De azért felmerült bennem a kérdés, hogy azok a hinták vajon kinek készülhettek.

Love this kind of stuff, super moody and let’s me make up my own backstory. Music was great as well. Ace work!

In the 90s the earliest 3D demos were just camera flights showing a few 3DSmax scenes with nothing moving. Today it's the same but with less camera displacement: graphics compo entries packed in a demo. A demo needs not to use physics, but stuff can move like they do in Fulcrum by Matrix or any CG enabled movies.
(the only moving objects was the cleaning robot, but it was behind heads of audience. You have to party code your camera view points when you see the big screen)

This demo is a masterclass in creating ambience. The music is stellar!

Oh, and Archee: how’s that one-trick physics pony you’ve been riding for over a decade? Stale?

Well done, well done - I love the mood, and that it makes me think - demos usually don't make me do that anymore.
Bonus points for the cat <3

very moody, very cinematic, very nice music.

Exactly what Gloom said!

On the top of :
Lately we have had some differences in what we find artistic, exciting or just "beautiful" ( usually about the 64k entries @Revision :) ), but this entry man... Absolutely the darkest, most gloomy entry I've ever seen from you. You were 100% able to show what does it mean to be ALONE. Loved it from the first until the last second.

The WINNER OF THE COMPO for me.

OOOHHHH SIIICK BUUURN!!

But about this demo: kinda like Darkness Lay Your Eyes Upon Me, but wetter, more pensive, less ominous. I like the subtle integration of scene-poetry into signs without going as far as CNCD/FLT stuff. Very good scene design.

Excuse me but did you by any chance upload the wrong version?! Because the version I just downloaded and watched looked like 90s CG that should run with 60 fps on an Intel HD 3000. The demo itself would be awesome if it werent for the the lo-fi rendering that is just too distracting for me to get into the mood.

i got very painterly vibes from this (although that's the wrong word). for its short length it evoked a lot of feelings and had a good reflective atmosphere. really nice!

also "THE DUCK" made me laugh

a very emotional ride, very well covered by the great soundtrack.
and in my book the compowinner.

We had a great time (partly melancholic) watching this best demo in the compo, or even the best one of slow-paced static-scenes moody demos.

Lately, ÜD demos tend to be more impressive the more you watch them, both on a technical and on a mental level. Even though semi-static scenes are usually not my cup of tea, this was already very enjoyable at the party and got even better now that I'm watching it at home on my own -- which is quite possibly how it's meant to be watched.

In my opinion this demo was the most beautiful one. And a giant <3 for the cat :)
rulez added on the 2018-09-11 11:18:13 by netro netro
Okay so what if. What if. We had a whole demo of watching a rainy street scroll by from the window of a bus. When I saw the screenshot, and the demo did not start on my machine due to some missing DLL, I was really hoping for that.

But hey, there was a cat.
rulez added on the 2018-09-11 12:03:59 by Trilkk Trilkk
Flyby with style. Some scenes didn't seem quite as polished as others, but I enjoyed the general mood a lot. Perfect soundtrack as well.

Very mixed feelings. It's too slow, too short, lacks any punch or twist, looks seriously dated and being generally a snore fest. On the other hand thumbs for inspirations and execution. Strong piggy then.

Decent and slow (not speed). It ran well on my ancient 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC with its ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of VRAM). I used the demo's lowest resolution in windowed screen.

Taken me a while to figure out how I feel about this, because initially it reminded me of bad times in my life. The execution is superb, you clearly nailed the technical and artistic targets you set yourself, with exceptionally good rendering and flow to the demo. That's a serious achievement, and it's uncompromising, so I guess having negative feelings from the imagery is also partly the aim of what you were expressing. Loneliness, isolation, and regret are not things I normally want to feel while watching a demo, I have enough of those in the real world, but I can't fault the way in which you show them, nor you wanting to.

Also, there are a lot of little touches mixed into this, the duck I didn't notice until the fourth or fifth time I watched. The music supports the imagery, and at times being almost fading completely from attention, enforcing the idea of life passing by. It's subtle, thought provoking, and will probably stay with me for longer than any other demo I have watched in a decade.
