good tip :)

the tunel is trully impressive
but in facts the whole demo is impressive, the msx perfectly fits the scenes, and every thing looks so real that you're absorbed and you feel being in the place... especially in the screenshot 's scenes.
this demo rulez!!!

this is actually the third time i'm commenting on this demo, the first comment went west with the pouet-database a couple of months ago and the second on the first addition of this prod.. but the comment; bad music, and drop the continous blur please.. pretty boring also.

ps! if you update your demo, update the download url and add a comment under your prod, don't add it as a completely new production.

Too "classic" for my taste, but the code is tight and modern ... Overlay mania ...

Love the spikey balls !
This is a real shame. A few years ago, I loved this style. Now I've got tired of it, and suspend makes this! Well, my problem not suspends.

The demo rules, anyway. The music is pretty good, the scenes are nice, some original ideas in there too, the effects are good, and the blur makes everything look nice and solid. Good for those of us without cards that can do decent AA :) Yes, good stuff.

gloom: jeez our music tastes seem to differ a lot (at least considering your comments on my tunes :), 'cos i love this track :)

very impressive technically

gargaj: i like many different types of music, but bad is bad and quality is quality, no matter the style. feel free to read that sentence any way you'd like :) (in the case of this song - the hihats are dull and hidden in the mix, the BD is plain boring, the riffs are cheap and uninventive, the overall production isn't "tight" at all, and the progression is very very boring. i like the strings starting at around 02:46 though, the musician should have played around with them a lot more). the best trance/goa-tune in a demo to this date is the track to 604 - now *there* is a tight production that really sucks the listener into the demo. (and i'm no goa-fan :)

ok, everyone who likes 604 rules, case closed :)

I thought that the blur was a good idea. It looks more real. Maybe they should blur just half as much? (if that is possible).

Goa doesnt give me any mechanical associations though..

Very nice. The blur did maybe get a little boring at places, but overall it sure made for a more "real" look.

music is at one with the visuals
I really enjoyed watching this demo.
rulez added on the 2003-12-03 20:11:38 by krunoce krunoce
music is sooooo damned cool! visuals are great too, although the objects should move more and faster, and the overall feeling should be more nervous (if you see wthat I mean!)

but still an excellent prod!

Big thumb up!

great engine, it runs smoothly. the music could be better, but all together is a cool prod, very nice.

Nice prod I must say!

Some aspects of this demo could certainly be polished but i like it anyway.

'the S' was much better. this is good too, except colours and music.

uncle-x is right... the notch has been raised, leaving this simple an average demo.

Jo nice! Nice Scenes. (Screenshot). Little bit blurry. Weird music. Bad ending.

The more I watch this demo the more it grows on me and it definitely ranks among my favourites at present.

Moreover, as a huge Goa/Psy trance fan, I think the soundtrack is completely breathtaking!

Thank you guys for all the good words and thumbs up. We are glad you enjoyed this :-)

link is dead :
Suspend is a famous polish group for me. I remember old and cool 64k intros like "backpage" (with cool Vacek/Arise muzax :)), "frontpage" and very good [imo] demo "XXX", but "Mechanical Dreams" surprise me a lot. Great: code, music and scenes.

Yeah, I like this demo. Maybe not super duper action packed, but very watcheable and enjoyable.

Loved it, especially the spikeballs at the end. Nothing novel of course, they just look really good.

a perfect snapshot of this demo genre and time

personally, too many spinny things.
still. nice ludwig.

nice one!
Pretty nice, certainly evolving from the s. Effects from the standard effect drawer with some blur and cool syncing added...

typical Suspend demo, yet not as polished as "the s" - especially the cyan objects don't really fit IMO. Still, an awesome demo with an awesome soundtrack.
