11+ MiB compressed? You've got to be shitting me...
added on the 2005-11-28 11:38:33 by Radiant Radiant
11 mb compressed is really a bit much, but overally quite nice.

very nice! and 11mb isn't too big, but rather regular demo size nowadays

Nice flash from the past.. but while the graphics are great and the tune makes me smile, it reminds me pretty much of the time when demos were only consisting of rotating objects.

cool demo (especially the gfx), I thought Rebels was dead.

"why does it try to connect to the internet or is it just my firewall acting weird? "

it contains base.dll which is part of our gaming engine with network play support. At init timi it searches for network hardware and ip settings, but it needs no internet connection, because the network module not used :)

Why thumb up just because of the group name? Actually going into that I`d say this is really just a shadow of the quality Amiga sceners whitnessed with Rebels back throughout the years.

The demo does have a nice feel down to the oldstyle demo track. Although I just didn`t enjoy the effects, maybe it was the colours or down to the fact they were nothing new or interesting. Closer to thumb down than thumb up.

hm.. sorry, but this one is rather overhyped. If it was made by (for example) the good ol' nextempire or scarab's group, we would see thumbs down flying all over the place.

Anyway, the music brought some very old memories, of more than 12 years. The rest was just bad.
added on the 2005-11-28 17:49:13 by Navis Navis
I second Darkus. I just SO don't like this style. The 2D gfx need massive props but the rest is just bleh.

I enjoyed this prod a lot, a very nice old school feeling with the gfx and tune. I had to give a thumb up that's all ;)
thx for the thumbs up'n'down ya all

considdering the short time frame, (1week for gfx & 2-3 days for coding) im still happy it turned out this way and.. most of u like it.. it seems. :)

Oldskool 4ever! kthx. :)

i saw it and thought it was ok. but in retrospect i dont think i'll ever play it again, it didn't really contain anything i hadn't seen 50 hundred times before, and most of the scenes didnt even look that nice.. so, thumbdown it is. sorry, but do keep the rebels comeback going. cant wait till you start doing non-fastmade demos. ^^

Forgot to mention, the demo was quite good. Great style, a welcome change from all these boring newschool ambient musicvideo-like demos. I just won't thumb up because I really, really dislike this trend where demos are getting bigger and bigger...

i second gargay. it's not becoz it's Rebels that everybody should thumb it up ; alien last gfx is very nice, but rest of demo is basic. nothing really impressive. it reminds me the last gargay intro.

Love the music! I like how the demo synchronized the voices in the beginning, but then the demo wasn't so great after that part in terms of visual. I like the chrome scene.
added on the 2005-12-04 01:56:12 by AntDude AntDude
well, the first scene IMHO is the best and I like the "Meta-Meta-balls", but the rest is an object-show. and the credits?
Music's nice --> overall pigface

there are better oldskool demos, than this retrodemo. so here is my piggy for you...
Oldskool with improvements and it rocked... I really liked the music.. It sounded like good old Laserdance & Koto.. :)

Awesome music by Vincenzo. Hey man, good job. :) I also like the oldschool feeling of the whole production. Brings back a lot of memories. I hope Rebels can keep it up. It would be great to see another old group being resurrected in a solid way.

demo killed by music.
that mindlessly cheesy orchstra-hit sample ruins everything for me. can't watch without muting audio.
instantly deleted the prod after first watch, however i respect the code and overall design/gfx. so there goes the piggy.

vincenzo: please update your sample-library.

Oooh! This was a great demo! Really Amiga flavoured. The tune reminds very much of the oldschool amiga demo style, which I guess was the meaning of it :).

Btw, this tune reminds kind of much of the old module "Hysteria" by Audiomonster :)

keith303: no offence, but u seem to completely miss the point of the cheesy orchestra-hit sample.

Well well... even on my... yes i know i should buy a new pc... so... even on my old 700mhz PC runs this demo perfect. nice fx but the best is the sound, like in the good ol amiga days.

thumb up for the sound and that the demo runs even on a prehistoric hardware well

avesome 2d gfx.
i have ambivalent feelings towards the music. it has nice oldschool feeling, but sounds like a direct ripoff (i don't mean it is ripoff or anything. it just sounds like that). also, uncosistent with the hires 3d.
the effects are simple, often bad, and very unconsistent with both the gfx and the music.

all in all, here is a thumb, for the effort.

Nothing spectacular, but had me entertained. The sweet logos push this into a weak thumb-up.

Thumb up because of the nice pixellated logos and pictures what I really miss nowdays. The music sounds familiar, but I think this is intentional. I will not listen it everyday, but IMO it fits very good to the demo.
