Way to step it up! Very good prod with great sync and ideas.

So fresh and tight. Best in compo for me. <3

Not the best of compo, but great as firetruck.

Wow. Tech is quite impressive, specially those reflections were lovely to watch. The sphere-of-spheres scene illumination blew my mind not only because the tech but because of the elegance and good taste shown directing the scene. On the other side, at some point it felt a little bit long to me (the pattern-on-a-plane scene lasted too long IMHO). But it's a minor on top of a top notch entry.

The most uplifting and inspiring entry in the compo, but also carries that authoritative "you'll sit down and watch me" aura. Extremely well designed and put together <3

Somehow manages to be oldskool and newskool at the same time.

It looks and sounds great, but needs to dial way back on the "inspired by Logicoma" feel imo. Especially on the tunnel scenes. I'd like to enjoy your own voice, but it's hard to do that when the content is so obviously similar.

Like the music and direction. Well executed technically!

Fresh and not 100% raymarching.

The sync left me speechless!

I think this demo got a good reaction, and also a good diffusion.

stunning use of cellular automata. really really interesting to see organic shapes evolve like that in a demo

Love it. Great visuals, awesome sync work and probably one of the best tunes we've ever had from subi. Rewatching intensifies.

really sweet effects, especially the sync on the cellular automata

I'll have a clean capture up in a couple of days, but for now here's the live version: https://youtu.be/FYyL_mEQWOM?t=1516

I remember i liked this in the compo! Nice syncs. Music feels very inspired by 'The Gitch Mob'

Yup, it is indeed, their style inspired quite a lot of the intro. :)
added on the 2019-04-23 13:23:08 by Subi Subi
A few notes:

- Not just the music, the visuals were influenced by The Glitch Mob too - in particular the screen mirroring effects and that black/white/gold color scheme were inspired by the music videos from the Love Death Immortality album.

- The organic effects (both 2D and 3D) are using Gray Scott Reaction-Diffusion (which I guess is arguably a less-discrete form of cellular automata).

- To settle some arguments, the 3D 'brain' is raymarched. No polygonization going on there. Who needs vertex buffers anyway?

- I forgot to put it in the infotxt, but huge thanks are owed to Ferris for fixing how WaveSabre reports the current playback time just hours before the deadline, when I realised the release build was desyncing horribly on my laptop. I think the intro's reliance on sync shows just how important that fix was for me.

- Apparently the party version of the exe doesn't terminate the process properly, I guess I messed that up when we were hacking the DLL stuff at the last minute. If you've run it locally, maybe check your task manager ;) I'll fix it in the final version.

What Fizzer said :D
rulez added on the 2019-04-23 19:21:10 by Anat Anat
Cool idea. Nicely executed. What else to ask from an intro?

As for 3d 'brain' effect - I would have guessed it is ray-marched from volumetric texture (which anyway has to be evaluated for reaction-diffusion effect).
rulez added on the 2019-04-23 20:41:52 by tomkh tomkh
innovative use of reaction diffusion. Soundtrack is kinda meh tho

Great work you two, sound sync and shaders all on point and you finally came up with a group name too :)

No worries! It was an obvious "must have" for our intro as well. This was a known issue, but it took someone hitting it _consistently_ to actually do something about it. Unfortunately that had to be you and I apologize for the timing (pun intended), but I'm happy to have been able to fix it in time and the sync in this intro is massive! :)

Also to address the "similar to logicoma" comments, I'd like to point out that I was actually surprised when someone pointed that out to me at the party. To me this feels quite distinct, especially with the faster-paced cameras and stuff (which I'm generally afraid to do tbh, so hats off for that). And I suppose that will only improve with further intros, which I assume are certainly coming!

I like how this feels very demoscenish and at the same time modern and fresh. Oh and sync rocks! Great prod.

Imagine my surprise 3 days after watching the intro on my work PC :)

sync on point. love it!

Amazing job ! I am not a huge fan of the almost b/w style (moar saturation ! moar contrast ! moar color !!), some scene lack a little bit of life :p . But the demo was really well put together and the cellular effect is really, really well done. Excited to see what you will do next !

wooah, that sync! sexy demo =) and, stamping logical shapes into a turing pattern? i might steal this idea for a tiny intro ;)
