cool, one of my favourite gba demos

surely great visual and auditive pleasure in unique style! best gba prod

it probably looks better on the real thing. quiet impressive visuals.
Very impressive!

z5: should work fine in VisualBoyAdvance if you have enough fast computer.

About the demo... I spent hours and hours making it and still in the end I wasn't extremely happy about the result. I'm glad it still won though.

And a funny note: The musician of the first part wishes to stay anonymous because he hates to song so much :)
added on the 2003-04-21 15:20:42 by dairos dairos
the song in first part is nice
added on the 2003-04-21 15:57:17 by shadez shadez

i've seen this several times now and i really like it. at some points it loses the flow, but in overall this is surely the best demo for gba. 3d engine is in full-resolution and it's fast, effects are good, musics fit almost perfectly and some features of the hardware are put in good use. that's the short list of reasons for thumbing this up.

quite rockin'. especially the 2nd part...
rulez added on the 2003-04-22 23:29:14 by uncle-x uncle-x
quite cool ... actually the coolest gba demo i've seen so far. *and* you can't beat the cool factor of being able to watch a demo anywhere, like, around a campfire for example ("only gba sp makes it possible")
added on the 2003-04-22 23:45:19 by _-_-__ _-_-__
Well, people have said it already, but it ruled. Ok music, really good visuals. The only thing that bothered me was the "wobbling" logo at the end, it was ugly.

ok, i admit, i made the first song. iam the best.

best gba demo so far... no real theme or idea, just good visuals and kickass music. a partycrowd-burner.

DiamonDie, i know that my logo sucks
sucks added on the 2003-04-23 09:22:40 by smirk smirk
maybe the reason for the incoherency is the huge amount of gfx artists:
-dodke made the overlays and a few "newmedia" backgrounds.
-lum made the scrolling picture of a girl and textures for the cube-scene and the space station.
-phase1 modelled the "space station" and brushed the title (screenshot) picture.
-I (raymon) modelled the first three scenes and the envmapped objects, made the textures used in 2d effects (tunnels and stuff) and rendered the tunnel maps.
-the textures in "the subway station" were made by piriste.

in contrast, dairos coded everything alone.

kinda cool. code could use some brushups here and there, but hey... it's a fucking gba (a fucking piece of crap). so, nice job.
rulez added on the 2003-04-23 17:10:36 by superplek superplek
The best demo on the gba so far.

I'm still hoping for the demoscene to grow on the gba. The limitations and capabilities is equivalent to the ones on amiga so i am fairly certain that a lot of people will find this an interesting platform to make demos for.
rulez added on the 2003-04-23 20:08:02 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
Thanks for the nice comments.
I guess it's ok now to reveal the author of the first song:
Chavez/Funktion (thanks a lot for allowing us to use it!)

DiamonDie: the logo in the end rules. only the effect sucks.

Ehm, another thumb up for Chavez, the tune rocked quite much on the big Audio Equipment in the Party Hall !
Too bad I can't really see the last logo good, because of the weird effect. Someone post it here please in 1:1 .gif glory! ;)

Good stuff mostly, although it's very very fly by. But I really like the 2d pic. Too bad it's on screen for not more than one secs. And what's with screwing up the logo?!
rulez added on the 2006-12-22 15:37:47 by Archmage Archmage
Hmm, impressive visuals (even though there are some minor bugs with the polyfiller, could be the emulator though :D) but it gets pretty boring once the 2nd part starts. Also the music is way too borin the 2nd part. It's a pretty cool GBA demo but nothing I'll watch often, thus no thumb.

"Also the music is way too borin the 2nd part." = Also the music is way too boring in the 2nd part.
