woot, the tune is one of goto80s best sds. i would love to have an mp3 of that.

gfx and direction rule also.

The tune was really not my style. Thought there was something wrong the first minute. But, the visuals where among the top 3 in the compo.

i really like this and the tune is nearly perfect.
great design.

just great.
lacks some of the nice flow you get in "postcards from stockholm" but is in return much more beautifully consistent, well composed and mysterious. i love it!

nicely done.

boring? this is great stuff indeed!

I wonder how ppl can thumb down this?! I must agree on the music part though.

Ah, hollowman's return to eerie existential orientation demos. :) The high-contrast low-colours gfx style is working great on the c64, some neat concept screens also (the money spendin' part in particular). Goto80's doing a solid job once more (and there's no doubt he is one of the best sid composers out there), but I find his demo tunes always a bit stale. Anyway, good demo.

So noone dares to guess what is really happening in the demo? :) My guess is that the guy beat up his wife and thats why noone wants to call him...

an art house movie on a c64.

good stuff

Interesting concept, I still haven't figured the connection between that car accident and the guy who has no real friends or something. Which fact makes the demo more interesting..
rulez added on the 2005-08-08 18:50:08 by Optimus Optimus
I got to the same conclusion as Sasq.
Yep, seems that the car accident is a lie or a metaphore the guy is using to explain why is wife in a wheelchair (just as she says so)... And as he's an agressive mofo, noone wants to play with him.

Oh mercy, this demo reminds me so much of my lousy life! At least I'm not coming up with lousy metaphores. Just beat up my bitch and spend all my money on cellphones and drink.

Great one, by the way...

o_O weird
But the music is even weirder ... but it certainly helps to convey the feeling of the demo.

:p I liked the car part.

I really liked this? I really liked this.

Love the sound track. The gasp and applause when the 3d car appeared were well deserved. Yay!

one of the best demos as usual.

the music was fittingly disturbing and the whole thing was beautifully deranged.

Unusually deep stuff for a demo, and extra thumbs-up for the subtle style of storytelling.

Very well crafted, and the tune fits perfectly.

very nice..

Nice but the tune is too boring. It should also have been a bit shorter I think. Cool demo anyway.
rulez added on the 2007-11-16 14:32:31 by StingRay StingRay
Strange.. but FLT style always does it for me. And Goto80 of course! :)

Goto80 and Hollowman: the best in FLT.

the soundtrack is so sexy.
Let me rephrase my previous word, this demo fucking rocks as do all the farelite c64 demos. The feeling in this demo just gripes my whole body, absolutely love it

Holy shit, is this for real? Actual storytelling? :D

P.S. Went and looked up what stole the most original concept award from this demo; wasn't surprised—a tough choice, really.

Boooring even with this concept
sucks added on the 2019-05-09 07:32:58 by krusty krusty
I like this one slightly less than "Romeo", because "Romeo" is a bit more explicit, and I like explicit. It is also a bit less exciting visually. But the concept here is just as fantastic, the scenario very convincing and it almost never feels like a demo, which is always a big deal for me.
