hey, I'm impressed. Really didn't know how powerful the Dreamcast were, and got impressed. (only watched the divx version though)

Stunning Dreamcast demo! Looks a bit like Haujobb's other latest prods (which are very good too though) but this one really rocks! And I gotta say that I love the tune! ;)

i think i already commented this one? looks like no..
was most impressive on bigscreen, the more i see it the less i enjoy. still, a really nice production, and on DREAMCAST!

Truly an AWESOME production... The overall mood and effects are superb! The music by itself is not great, but with the demo it gives a very good ambience and feeling.
Haubott power!

AArgh! I just love this!
The music and mood just sort of "grow" on to you. Definitely one of my favs as it is on the Dreamcast!
added on the 2002-03-07 04:06:46 by Nezbie Nezbie
Man, this is slick. The Dreamcast must have more power than I ever imagined! (I watched the nice high-quality divx video.)

I saw it only at the partyplace and it rocked!

yep, defeniatly a great prod.

but at time the refresh rate drops to half - literaly. is this because it's got vsync, and you're just not making it?

again: rocks!

why's this added as a playstation prod. hm.
looks like an average pc demo, with bad 3d and bad coding and crappy music.
the only thing why i liked it:
it's a Dreamcast demo...

Very cool! I love the soundtrack

its a dreamcast demo.
amazingly flaccid mixing on the track, however.. upping the volume only made the difference between the 'effect'-sounds and the drums more obvious.. how sad.

This one really rocks, one of the best console demos that I've seen

a really impressive demo by haujobb. it was the first real demo i watched on my dreamcast :)

was pretty generic afair, but still sweet.

one of the best hjb's ever..
hellfire is THE man..
rulezcdc added on the 2004-02-11 15:31:45 by toxie toxie
not one of my favourite hjb prods, but still plenty nice enough. Some of the 3d scenes looked good but could maybe have done with a little more design (or perhaps toned-down colours?) but the 2d stuff ruled, so did some of the objects (like the haubott :)

not that good... where are all the effects?
added on the 2004-07-10 01:34:53 by shadez shadez
It's a wonderful milestone, though i wonder where the performance gets lost in some scenes? Commercial games seem to get more throughput,

Cool texturing and models. Nice dark atmosphere. Wish more pc demos had that feel.

Very style, very haujobb.

Great demo! I'm not too keen on the music, but the graphics and textures are really good. The haubott scene rocks!

After 2 years of having this, finally watched on a Dreamcast. (Yes, the same copy I ran on my NTSC Dreamcast.) It _does_ run in NTSC, just poorly (skipping several scenes - tho the music plays.) (no, make that most scenes.) Anyway, now I can see it on real hardware, and, yes, very very sweet (: And somewhat dark (:
pretty awesome!

Doesn't really move me...
This is a 3D flyby. Props for doing it on a DC, but I've seen better Haujobb stuff.

Torn on this, platform is good and there are some nice objects, but some of the tunnels and rooms full of boxes put me off. Still a thumb :)

I have a hard time liking the style, but still it's DC and very nice for the platform.

nice aggressive tune by raytrayza
demo is so-so, could've got some more scenes, as its got good story-elements.

I still like this. It has a particular aesthetic that just really pleases me, even if it's "just" a 3D flyby show.
