nice little soundtrack, satisfying effects, bad texturing on the flybies tho.. thumbs up deserved.

Overall great demo with excellent music!

dwarf: i've been rather supportive and am positive. are these badly textured scenes yours perhaps? :))
added on the 2003-07-28 17:33:40 by superplek superplek
it's not green
anyway, I like the soundtrack, I like the scenes, and whatever.

loved the particles ! :>

somehow reminds me of excess demos and this is just as great!
only minus for me are the monitor scene from the screenshot, which is just too seenbefore and the music style, which is too happy for the visuals (or the other way round).
apart from that - great show!

it was quite nice except for some crappy textures... soopadoopa should have won

A really nice demo, higher resolution of the textures wouldn't have hurted though.

some very cool effects, like the twister :). but i dont think the flyby scenes lived up to the same standards. some textures were too lowress and little interesting. The black overlays were a little increative and sometimes covering too much of the screen i think... But anyway, great prod!
rulez added on the 2003-07-28 20:40:44 by Duckers Duckers
I see what Plek is saying and I agree about those particular scenes, but the objects look very slick indeed.

I found the overlays and noise effects a bit too intrusive, but altogether this is a very nice demo indeed and I love the fast pace.

a woooahhh . . . production
rulez added on the 2003-07-28 21:06:43 by freed_ohm freed_ohm
fiver2: i see it too, must be the static/black distorted borders/twirlythingies i think.. :)

i wouldn't say it's too similar though, 'cause apart from the somewhat lousy textures this is goood.
rulez added on the 2003-07-28 23:38:23 by gloom gloom
sweet dark ambiance !

but i agree with plek (for the 1st time) and others : the low-quality textures do spoil a little the overall impression.
rulez added on the 2003-07-29 01:22:09 by Zest Zest
Very nice! Love the effects portions. However, to me the guy-with-wires scene and the jail scene don't look all that great and don't fit in too well. I think perhaps they could've been dropped altogether, as the rest stands quite well on it's own.
rulez added on the 2003-07-29 03:34:26 by sea_monkey sea_monkey
apart of some low quality textures (at the prison flyby and at the guy killed in a nasty way) this is soooo perfect!
I love this stuff!!!
rulez added on the 2003-07-29 07:36:03 by FooLman FooLman
quite nice. in addition to all above, nice syncs, though a bit simple. the soopadoopa thing should've won though :-)
rulez added on the 2003-07-29 08:49:01 by skrebbel skrebbel
The effects are okay but it's the design which makes this demo so good. Very nice syncs and very cool music.

Nice visually appealing stuff, esp. considering how fast they did this prod. Mentor is Heman!
The soundtrack is nice, though not that original, but who cares.

Nothing new, but overall a solid and cool production.

Good music, design, modelling.. but please, quit changing the camera angle every f*cking second! Some of us actually like to pay attention to the scenes.
rulez added on the 2003-07-30 02:49:19 by phoenix phoenix
very good (but not really my cup)
rulez added on the 2003-07-30 12:34:57 by willbe willbe
The soundtrack ticled my fancy allright, perhaps because I was subjected to it DAY AND BLOODY NIGHT when I was staying at Cheesy's place :)

Modelling and Atmosphere are pretty decent too, you guys have made quite some progress.

thanks for the comments on the music btw ;)

the old version didn't work on my work-computer, but this new one does.. except when exiting at the end of the demo.
the screen just goes black, the cursor shows but nothing works.. :(

I'm SO pleased that you all like it. That means alot. The textures is made to be dirty and distorted. But they are not meant to be compressed poorly, thats my fault, again. I guess I'm not made for working 4 days straight. I'll go and slap myself now and promise to work smarter next time. :)
added on the 2003-07-31 17:59:44 by cheesytbc cheesytbc
Really good demo !!! It's also the favorite one of my son :)
Just 5 months and already watching demos...
rulez added on the 2003-07-31 18:17:25 by Nicky One Nicky One
It works now and deserves the thumbzup :)

However when the demo quits at the end, weird never before seen things happen to my XP like icons become distorted and buttons have black rectangles instead of texts, and it doesn't return to the original resolution either. :)

But apart from some ugly textures (as mentioned), there are some nice effects, too. All in all a good prod.

some parts are just a bad carbon copy of kewler's variform... music doesn't sound that good and the flybies are terrible... definetly not my cup of tea...

Yes, some parts and synchs remind of Variform, but this one rocks anyways

I would just like to said that i hasn't got anything to do or is inspired by Variform, beause neither the graphician or the coder can see anything really special in it ... neither can I ...

I has nothing to do with a copy of something kewlers made !

Kinda like Shapeshifter, but a bit worse in every aspect. :) The intro was cool though.

I second dwarf and feel like telling you all that I'm quite sure this is NOT inspired by variform in any means. stupidest thing I've ever heard :)

Interesting music in the beginning. Slightly monotonous later.
The demo is really nice.
The first place in this party must have been very disputed.

Very good work!!!

Design is heavily influenced by Fr and Excess, some parts feature really cool "squids" and the aural part is excellent. Nevertheless, the poser model and the "kasparov" fly-by made it a bit too cheesy for my taste.

Enjoyable demo though the textures are a bit rough around the edges.
Puryx' music is of the usual high quality (Puryx, please get yourself a proper homepage so that we can leech your masterpieces more conveniently).
All in all a well deserved thumb!
