Holy shit, this is HORRIBLE!!!
I mean, I am usually a tolerant person towards demos, but DAMN...
- All the graphics are nearestpoint-sampled, no mipmaps, nothing. (There goes the bitmapzoom...) Looks like a software-render engine without any decency. (But, alas, it's hardware.)
- SLOW. Never managed to go over 30 fps on a GF3 during 3D scenes...
- The music sounds like if Stv tried to finish the music without a soundcard (read: more out of tune then if it was random... note that this wasn't an insult towards Stv, I know he didn't do the music)
- Non-existant storyline with wannabe-Cocoon elements.

Sheesh... As hard as I try I can't have any constructive ideas here...
Still I have to thank you for making my colorblind prods look decent :)

BB Image <- consider that as a virtual thumb-down...

sharp 3d modeling and good textures, coherent environement like video game, like rayman for example or like those Lego universe, colorfull and realistic in the sametime
some scenes are too dark, it is difficult to see something
music is not good, it's sad you had lost the original music
you let an unuseful 152kb Thumbs.db file in the directories!
funny reference to your previous prods with billG poster ;)
it is the Jylam's head we can see lots of blood in the cave ? ;)
cartoon render gives it a good touch', but it becomes sometimes slow (gf4ti+p4)
I did not understand all the story, the cow is dead, and you try to explain who kill it but i was lost in the story
I like the camera view at the end, when we see the red men with the uzi gun, thumbs up for the 3d quality and the final scene wich remember me ix/moppi, it miss just a good music and more design and composition to be fashion ;)

like : music and the little cow who runs in the dark city on his skateboard :-)
don't like : some parts are really slow and the canabis picture is bad taste :-(

I got a GF 2 TI here, i don't see there nearest point sampled textures! looks like linear sampling(+mipmaps?!). Perhaps it's a little bit buggy.... It seems the demo ist loading things while playing... but it's still ok ( btw. the head rocks ;) )

Hello, i'm the coder of this slow render engine,
and say: slow is beautifull on my ATI RADEON 9200 SE !!
yee, y've buy rescently an Radeon 9200Se and test, and thats is unlookable (1 to 3 fps at the first scene)...

The next version of my 3D engine is in preparation, and must correct this.

Technical notes: Display of first scene generate over 30.000 two pass (60.000 polygons result) textured polygons with spots and directional lightings, blendings.

And, with no Octree ! next engine must correct this and increase speed (that is not an exploit) for non Geforce15 Cards....

Sorry for this, and, wait and see !

Good making of crepes a tous!

demos shouldn't be only inspired by the most stupid form of crap action movies.

turn off the tv, discover museums, read books, visit galleries, explore the whole world of digital culture.

i dislike this one, music is a mess, some parts really look kinda software-rendered ("oldschool feeling" :D)... very slow, too...

Please zone, don't insult Rayman, there is no comparision possible, it any mean. They are kiki prod, and we are not. Please don't, for me.

whoa, when I pressed esc, this thing took more time to swap Windows back in (512MB here) than our intros need for precalc. Cool.

It's quite well put together and the scenes are pretty well done, but the garish colour scheme and tuneless music made it feel like a very low quality production.

I guess it could be remixed into a decent demo with a few minor changes in places.
added on the 2004-02-23 23:44:26 by Wade Wade
it certainly could.

but more on topic: THANKS KIKI-PRODS! Your demo not only sucks wang like no computer company of the same name could, you also managed to be the first demo in possibily three years to *hang* my system! Most crap demos have the decency the simply crash to the desktop nowadays, but you sure take the cake.

Oddly enough, parts of the music would be usable if only it was remixed by a decent IDM artist. That is keeping me from thumbing this trainwreck of a 3D player down.

piark: 60k polys is many or what? (note: you can have 400k on GF2 and still be called "realtime")

umm. I like it very much first time when the show begins. But after a minute of watching the whole thing turns too boring. The music is under of any critism. The textures and the "look-out" is good (i like it). But the whole thing too boring and i haven't any idea why the things happend, i feels nothing... sorry, that's why i thumb down it.

has technical potential (good 3D models & rendering), but lacks coherency, attitude & taste (cartoon skating cow, realistic gunned people, buiding site and gore elements ?). Music is a pain, also... Piggie for hoping better works !

for me not the best prod of the synthesis but nice gfx and 3d models. despite the slow 3d engine rendering is very nice.
i really don't like the music but without soundcard it is difficult to do a good one :/

good progress from kiki prod. the next one should be very nice ;-)

heh thumb up for Kiki Prods that are surely not making prods which are similar to others ;)

PS: i'm in love with the fat pigs

PS2: how is it possible to lose a soundcard ? :] please don't mistreat puters as you do with animals :P

zone : no it's not jylam's head, he's not our friend but we respect him.
there is no scenario or somethin', just scene after scene, can be because I created each scenes..just look and enjoy or press esc.

I think there is not many demos with characters this is why there is often in ours.
Yes, this demo request a BIG computer, but version 5 of our engine arrives!..

Zest : he does not have to break his sound card, I suppose that he wants nothing to make for us.
As always, if we were more has to take part...

ps : we don't use drugs, never!

i love the ambient and cell shading ...

I like : 3D objects, textures, rendering and environment and fat pigs :-)

I don't like : Music and the absence of coherence between the scenes, but good I believed to understand that it is not really voluntary..

Globaly I like it, Kiki Rulezzzzz \o/

Nice demo With nice effect (i love the first transition effect between the loader ans the first scene for exemple)

Very slow. It's a pitty because it looks better than other kikiprods and I always liked these fluffy animals in Kikiprods. But where is the Bill Gates damn?! ;)

Wow, a Kiki Prod that doesn't suck. At least not completely. Some of the use of cell shading was nice, and the pigs were cute, but the thematic material was kinda lame. It looks like a lot of effort was put into the demo, but not into the ideas/concepts behind the demo.
Garbage music? Bad story? Fake Cellshading?

Doesnt matter! They like cows! Ultimate Thumbs up!
