Supercool design and superjuicy butt in the first background. Some scenes are a bit too long (e.g. the tunnel).

A fine demo, with some well executed ideas. the tunnel scene, may as mentioned be a bit long.

Grate stuffs but the noise part killed my ears so bad!

Maali: Look close at the bottom right of the screenshot!

Quite different compared with their relaxed 'Experience', but anyway nice :)

This was my cup of tea. And the tunnel rocks, i actually wanted it to go on for longer :)

it resets my desktop to 640x480, crashes in the wink of an eye *and* utilizes the same name as a pretty good demo from orange.

The stakes are raised against it in my book :)

Anyway, I'm using a clean install of WinXP, Radeon 9100 with the latest Catalyst. What am I doing wrong?

has its moments, but not a lot 8) a few overlong scenes, not much variety. a piggie.

Odd mishmash style. Not bad though.
added on the 2003-07-08 10:36:02 by tomaes tomaes
hard to use a so wellknown demo title! if you ask 'television', everybody will answer 'orange!' of course
the music gives it a spirit, but the visuals don't do the job (too confuse)
FYI : AverAG(- 54.73 with p4-1.8 gef4200ti
"blending abusal" rule seems to be broken here. Some great ideas like noise tunnel. Screenshot textures design is ugly I think. Recalls me some 95-8's demos.

was quite an experience on the big screen... nice ambient feeling in overall.

the effect in the screenshot is the coolest one, although you might want to speed up your code guys. (..and using the name "television" is blasphemy (no, not the danish kind :))

Awesome and Nice to watch - Like it - Where can i Download the Music? :)

bambo: after noticing that about half of the demos in my collection also wouldn't run anymore, I've been fidgeting with the setup. Turns out that the Catalyst 3.5 drivers were to blame -3.4 runs your demo just fine.
added on the 2003-07-09 04:02:48 by Shifter Shifter
Hmm, catalyst 3.5 runs it fine here, but that's on a 9500. Oh well.

Very inconsistent overall, but I did like some of the scenes.

Some nice visuals, but the super duper slow pacing killed it for me.

Not my piece of cake (too much blending for my taste)

took me a lot of energy NOT to press esc... more action plz
added on the 2003-11-26 20:14:48 by Gargaj Gargaj
yeah, too much blending, but a few very beautiful scenes too
rulez added on the 2003-11-26 22:57:20 by jazzman jazzman
Love the whole "Time Tunnel/Info Tunnel" concept, but some of the 2D blending totally obscures all the 3D action happening, shame ...

Music & concept are second to none ...

Nice visuals and pretty good music.

Something a bit different, I enjoyed it. Only criticism would be that I've seen people pull off the TV static/snow a bit more realistically.
rulez added on the 2004-10-17 20:23:04 by SiW SiW
The tunnel is just brilliant.. otherwise, I feel that this demo lacks direction. Nice effects, but the television-concept isn't realized that effectively.
rulez added on the 2004-10-17 20:33:08 by Preacher Preacher
I didn't like the music too much (especially when the drums kick in), but the rest was quite ok... piggy

1 good transition, 1 good-looking scene, 1 nice 2d pic. All the rest, are crap.
added on the 2005-01-08 19:20:43 by Frozzy Frozzy
This could've been awesome. Classic style worked well here, the noise part was a good concept but poorly realized and I dislike windows hard drive partitioning program screenshots (or whatever it was). That said, for me the blending that others have complained about does work here.

Gets better as it goes forward but ends a bit abruptly in my opinion. Great concept takes it a long way, pretty nice but far from perfect. Reminds me of some of Komplex's stuff, xtal remake getting closest maybe.

Hard call but I think it's missing just a little bit for a thumbs up. Definitely worth checking out though.

The graphics look a bit poor here and there, but I can't help but like the transitions in this demo.
rulez added on the 2007-04-21 22:23:21 by Shifter Shifter
The transitions are indeed very nice but the demo is rather dull.
