typical "german" shit demo. bad coding, bad scenes, bad music, bad taste.

nice prod : but think some bad point should be corected here and there :
-awfull music
-no cocoon copright ( hahahaha )

Carry on the good work

nice waste of technology, although decidedly better than some of their previous work

perhaps one of the most ugly things i have seen ever... a lot of cool code effects wrapped in the most disgusting design and music i have ever suffered. i agree with shifter... waste of technology

what the hell is impressive about the code in here :)

boring, ugly, and slow

sorry i don't like it at all. looks like an attempt to rematch the "raw confessions" athmosphere, but fails..

Fucked prods are cool.

very kewl atmosphere.. and superb sound..
i think it's the best tsq-production 'til now!
but cannot thumb up because i made one mesh for this demo.. :)

Really interesting demo. The most comments are way to harsh. To bad that it's just crashing here right after start.

Works here - and I unfortunately can not say this for a lot of bp demos (yeah, blame my system).
Anyway, it's typical TSQ Style alright (gray on darkgray textures) but I like the flow to the pumping music. And just love the broken robot scene :)

SquoQuo goes Cocoon (sort of).

Ugh.

A few reasons why this is getting a thumbs down:

-Overuse of blur
-Lack of cohesive atmosphere i.e. haunted house, then slinkys?
-REALLY CLICHE HORROR THEME ALERT: Evil Clowns - c'mon! The fact that it was singing a rather cliche [at least vocally] EBM track only worsened the blow.
-Hard to watch, not enough contrast in some scenes, too much in others.

It wasn't all bad though. Some of the models were actually quite good. If you took out the stupid clown (chosen as the singer/focus of the demo for some odd reason) this demo wouldn't be half bad. do this, tone down the blur, fix the vocals and it'd be a thumbs up.

woohoo, it's a great jokedemo!.. funny mock-up of 'raw confessions'... oh wait.. this was meant to be serious?!..

We've experienced major quality problems with some driver's settings.

Always set the "Texture Quality" in your graphics card's driver to "Highest Quality" (this is *always* recommended). Otherwise the card will reduce the color depth of textures internally. This leads to heavy artifacts and color bleeding as the demo heavily relies on feedback effects.

If you don't like the feedback effects overall or you've got <600MHz and <Geforce/Radeon card please consider checking the "No feedback" option
this has actually quite cool code, some very good ideas and some good graphics... unfortunately, in the best squoquo tradition, it also has enough bad ideas and bad graphics to compensate for it...

Hooray for demos with Hocico'esque EBM soundtracks ;)

Then again, I share most views of the previous writers (Exoticorn summarizes it quite well), but in the end, it's a small + for you

The last three Squoquo demos I've seen had some interesting code and ideas, this one included. But all of them suffer from some dull brown/grey textures and ugly modelling. (Although this time around the meshes are much better overall.) Some more polish in the visual department may very well do wonders.
But ugly, music sucks big time and the modelling even more, not to mention the graphics...

Only average quality, both technically as well as design-wise. But the dark atmosphere rocks hard, as well as the reference to their recent 64k - SquoQuo style just rulez.
No wonder that I like watching SquoQuo prods more than any other releases =)

Ehm I liked it much. Where did they try to rip Raw Confessions ~_° ?!?!

ok guys, as mentioned on ojuice, the final version is finished.
doesn't change anything designwise, but there is a serious bug fixed and the gamma slider works correctly now
get the fixpack or go to our page and download the complete fixpack
dammit, download the complete "demo", not the complete "fixpack"... D'Oh
good and bad

not bad, too bad the demo brought up mixed emotions; same for the musick .. harsh things never mix good with cute elements =)

feedback is a nice effect but you raped it. totally. and music sucked too.

not my taste, 1989 music style
too much blurred, textures are not very good
does not run at all

Very average and nice to watch. But the music is horrible.

Don't make fun of Das Ich here, jobe! Anyway, 10 thumbs for the soundtrack, best ever I heard in a demo!!! Genetic Gemini, you rule! The rest of the demo is not bad either, just a bit boring. But the soundtrack, the soundtrack <3<3<3

I liked it very much really. Very funny and unusual. Bad quality I think was intended, because ugliness really fits the whole thing. And soundtrack fits too.

one of those demos that you just have to keep.... sadly it gets a bit long, too, though

it is really great. it's dark and hard and genetic gemini's soundtrack is kewl! i also enjoy the gfx with all the blurs and everything :)

proof that making glitch demo is also hard. good track though.

pros:
- the black flower in the last part
- the vending machine
- the soundtrack (somehow...)
- shadows, bump textures

cons:
- overall design (you need a designer, badly)
- "chewing" clown
- did I really see A BLEEDING TAROT CARD????
