have to agree on the music. brilliant!
the graphics are also nice, and there are really lots of 'em...
not too strong in the coders corner but okay for a first prod.

A great surprise at the democompo. Another example of how to make a good demo without much code, and the music is fantastic ;).

Somewhat simple in terms of routines, but the presentation is excellent and gives it a real edge.

quite cute, apart from the ugly-ass wireframes.

Excellent demo featuring one of the soundtracks of the year. As mentioned above, it does have quite basic routines but at the sametime everything is presented nicely. Overall, it`s good demo with great feeling.

Very inspiring introduction part too.

the wireframes were bad, some stuff were oversynced, the rest ROCKS
/me envies all the spanish fuckers for their cool graphicians...

*awaits for a spengler-comment to describe this prod as "boring" or "poor"...*

For those who don't know Yero, he's been always musician and last year he also began to do 2dgfx. Now it seems he started coding demos too and this one's definetly a very promising start.
JosSs' music is awesome as always, congrats to both of you :)
rulez added on the 2003-11-05 23:20:54 by ithaqua ithaqua
Definitely shows coding "newbieness" but it's still good. Designwise, it rules, and the music is fucking brilliant.

A very good job for a first production by Yero, and, as always, great great great music by JosSs. Keep it up guys!

These are my boys!

Josss & Yero for presidents
Demos need 2d Artwork.
not too much code in it, but still a sure rulez...
/me seconds to Gargaj regarding the lucky spanish bastards with their gfxmen

...no one expects the Spanish graphicians...

I was very impressed when I saw that both code and graphics were made by a musician (everything except the music in fact). If there ever was a "Scene Courage" prize this sure would have been a worthy winner.

The ideas behind the graphics are all very nice, it has a warm feeling, but the graphics lack a bit of detail, some look a little flat.
A couple of effects would have been nice as well, showing rotating objects alone just doesn't cut it.

Mad props to you guys and your first prod. Respect.
rulez added on the 2003-11-06 18:58:23 by sin sin
yeah, true, respect! The lack of code is nicely covered by a great concept and design. Music is really fitting. Congrats to Sector Omega :)
rulez added on the 2003-11-06 19:11:00 by Duckers Duckers
ruled for me the smoooth taste of the music, and the handsomeness of some pictures, great first attempt demo, keep on that way!....but hey! you abuse too much on that camera *TICK* effect and at last become a bit boring
rulez added on the 2003-11-06 19:37:36 by JaK JaK
I wish all first productions were like this one. Looking forward to the next one being even better.

Spengler: true, you are boring and ugly.

sweeet.. ;)
rulez added on the 2003-11-07 12:52:49 by snw snw
really nice prod :)

astharoth: just ignore spengler ... i've once looked through all of his comments and he usually just complains ... i bet he never wrote a single line of code himself anyway ... ;)

spengler: don't feel offended here, but vb and excel macro's don't count here
rulez added on the 2003-11-07 22:22:09 by rojaro rojaro
For a first production, this is fantastic. It's also great to see 2D artwork included -- I personally would like to see a resurgance of such things. But, I felt the overall flow and content quite predictable. No surprises here.
i hate scene poetry. overall, the prod is definitely nice though
rulez added on the 2003-11-08 14:35:35 by jazzman jazzman
Not especially impressed when it loops with first scene fading in and out infinitely.

Doesnt seem to work well in Radeon 9800. I just get a brown flash on beat
added on the 2003-11-09 05:43:57 by mac mac
Well, first demo ... real nice result !
Really looking for the next prod ... Good work !
rulez added on the 2003-11-09 13:54:02 by kohai kohai
hey, not bad for a first demo. graphics shows definite potential and the music was calm and good, but the lack of real effects brings it to a snort-face.
added on the 2003-11-15 00:41:34 by gloom gloom
It does not work with Radeon9000 too. Does somebody have an ati card for yero to test it? ;)
looks gay

Nice clean graphics with beautiful colors.
Shame there isn't much animation in this demo. :(

This is good. Not technically impressive but welldesigned, and pleasing to the eye.
rulez added on the 2004-11-30 14:01:15 by NoahR NoahR
but?! the lamp is flat! :]
interesting rythm, music is good, design is interesting
not enough for a thumb up, so pigface
At last I got an ati so I could debug the problems it had... In the same download url you have the fixed version.
