Noice quality I suppose! ;)

This demo has some very god music and good graphics. Like it or leave it (but you should do the first)!
I agree with rez =)

Would be cool if editing comments would work, then I could change "god music" to "good music"! =)
i partially like the music, but i think it's a bit overloaded with effects.

Nice effects, its a perfect tempo, u never get bored.
Good tune too...watch this.
added on the 2000-11-30 01:14:36 by skypher skypher
best Noice prod, except for Destination Goatland maybe...
Great tune, but there are a *few* parts that that make me cringe with its tackiness - like that during that wireframe bendy thing with blurs and stuff near the beginning (great description heh).
How can a demo be *overloaded* with effects? And all of them were really cool in my opinion, except that weird voxel (?) river thing that ran about 2fps on a 633mhz.

One of the most effective demos seen in 2000, cool dezign, stunning 2d visuals, superb gfx,...a bit slow on the landscape part(in my opinion that part was unnecessary ;)... in conclusion new fresh effects & lot of design

it's kinda perfect, it's well designed, graphics are cool, effects look nice and the music is okay as well... it doesn't touch my heart though. dunno dunno dunno why.
added on the 2001-05-14 01:15:55 by raver raver
There. Noice deserve a thumbs up for this one. :) Every part looks great, except the slow landscape part in the middle. The music and graphics simply rule. If you don't like emphasis on effects (for some crazy reason) then maybe you won't like it so much. It could've won any Swedish party, too bad they picked Assembly 2k and got 9th. :)

yeah, thumbs up! this one is filled with fx..

Very nice demo with an awesome soundtrack. Too bad it was done in a hurry, the meta-torus part and the river flyby aren't as good as the rest of the demo... Still one of the best demos from Assembly'00.

just wonderful. everything about it, code, design, graphics, music, layout..

if you haven't seen this one, do it NOW =)

This demos has everything a demos should have, awesome music, awesome graphics awesome code.
It's a shame it didn't place better on Assembly.
rulez added on the 2001-11-07 23:16:02 by bumbu bumbu
Holy poop! Does this demo have design or what!? Great, great, great. (Although I do think the first half is somewhat better than the second.)
rulez added on the 2001-11-15 08:51:23 by sea_monkey sea_monkey

The first part has _excellent_ design, very well fitting in with the demo. The second part (ie. after the lame landscape scene) doesn't work at well, but it's nowhere near destroying the impression from the first one. Great job :-)

(But how the heck did it come _9th_?)

This is definitly one of my favorite demo. I have it on my hd since the results of ASM00 came out and I'm still watching it once in a while.

Awesome music & timing. Kickass effects, nice design, nice artwork, nice everything.

And yes, it's very surprising that it didn't end with a better result that than at ASM.
rulez added on the 2001-12-17 02:31:00 by zelkor zelkor
this is cool!
Some particle effect and music sync was good.:)
About ranking, I agree.
rulez added on the 2001-12-17 03:29:51 by got got

time went, somewhen looked at it again and, yeah got some vibe, in fact it got an oldskool spirit overall and also this hm.. lets call it "scene factor", it was 100% pure scene production (it doesnt look like 3D game or videoart). purist demo. very good!

I didn't get bored by this. very cool music. big applause! great design! and the coder did a very good job! :)

I love this! It's quite rare to see a demo with so many effects these days. Also excellent music and graphics.

kusma/excess: Seriously, no matter how you put it, this demo doesn't suck. I can respect if you don't think it is worth a "rulez" because everyone has different tastes but you have to be more specific than that if you think it sucks that much, you are the only one with a thumb down in this thread.

Cool effects and great music. I especially liked the fractals on the screenshot scene.
rulez added on the 2003-12-10 12:27:03 by Preacher Preacher
Some ok code, but the overall impression is ruined by the lousy attempts at "design like the skilled designers do it". Would've gotten a thumb up if they stripped out all the crap and injected a bit of attitude....
(Normally this would've been a piggie, but I felt like joining the exclusive club of down-thumbers for this prod..)
sucks added on the 2003-12-11 09:57:56 by Korvkiosken Korvkiosken
Overall an excellent demo, although some of the coding aspects could have been optimized. The track sets a lovely mood, and the gfx is quite frankly, very impressive. The beginning has some real good design, with the lines and frames =)
Personally, one of my favs from asm 2000 (getting 9th place though.... what a pity)
rulez added on the 2004-03-07 07:34:54 by Nezbie Nezbie
Nice. Few things disturbed so I gave it a piggie

i've always loved noice (of my my fav groups) - and sometimes i think this is a magical demo.. but admittedly there's some ugly bits.
Oil vectors are boring, landscape scene is ugly, as is and opening credits, bottom text gets boring.
screen 2d gfx composition and music is fantastic though... so pig.

spicy flavoured oldschool dish with chilled soundtrack.

That short white lines are really terrible. Other things are great. Good design, colors, textures, models, sync, music, effects, etc.

What shall I say? I love software rendering, and there are many really cool effects in there. Also, good music.

LOVE IT. Sweet demo, awesome fx, and love the music. SW rendering FTW.

I have not voted for this one yet? (How many times I said this, it's like some demos I am sure I have voted in the past..)

This is my favorite noice demo. It had some great SW rendering, effects, ideas, typography associated with them, slow moody flow with moody music, it was great (although too slow in my old PC the year this came, but now I can fully enjoy)

Cool design, veru "numedia", but also very rough around the edges in some aspects. Kinda the standard reference for what a demo should've been in the year 2000 I think.
rulez added on the 2018-06-14 10:33:23 by noby noby
imo balancing between relatively fancy and definitely ugly in terms of gfx, although I like first part (before greetings) and music
but I can't force myself to not pressing escape on second part seeing so much inyourface and visually unpleasant stuff, sorry :) so piggie it is

chillout music and a lot of other good work, but overall this feels pretty disconnected and hardly appealing to me

a hot mess, but "cheating is art" I agree with
