The effects didn't really offer anything new, and the music never went anywhere after the semi-promising start. But since I'm a sucker for cubes, slick design and cute color schemes, you had me entertained. :)

Finally the final version is here. I already enjoyed the preview, but now, jesus fucking christ, that definitely kicks ass. REBELS, I WANT YOU IN MY BED RIGHT NOW!1 <3 Greetings broz.

A delightful, laid-back and cubotastic symphony for cubemaniacs like me.
Tit for tat, so here goes my thumb up.

This worked on my machine here at work! No demos or cracktros ever work on this machine! Woot!

I liked it, good scenes.

nothing new. but kinda slick.
rulez added on the 2006-03-07 19:19:13 by bzz bzz
some really slick parts, some not that slick parts. all in all good.

This year all top 3 demos took the first place for me :) Zephia is one of them. Very stylish, very cool. We all loved it at the party place.

after watching repeative yellow/black noise animation for awhile, i pressed esc. i guess it doesn't work on my hardware... (mobility radeon 9700)

annieee, it turns out a bit wrong on cards that doesn't support FBO in the drivers. it has a fallback to glCopySubPixel, but for some reason that seems to not be working. I am sorry for this.

I think if you have sephia as concept then you should have used it all through the whole demo. The yellow-brownish noise and the blue/green stuff don't go that well together...
But it was nice otherwise.

warm retro design combined with a nice downtempo soundtrack and some catchy gfx!

good work, you made me happy ;-)

Now this looks very nice! Nice effects, design and colours here. Soundtrack fits but is a bit too boring.

It feels like a pointless numedia exercise for parts, but it was definitely enjoyable. Especially the tunnel part.

the scene with the inverted cubes reminded me of Preacher's "Eight Scenes of Human Life", but I like Zephia nevertheless... it's not mindblowing, but convincingly decent and stylish... Keep up the good work, Rebels. Hey M:et, it was great chatting with you tonight and I look forward to future productions. ;)

hmm, it's got nice mood and it's kept in one style convention - that's good. I'm just concerned with ppl getting so excited about this - it's ok but not a killer :)
rulez added on the 2006-03-08 01:00:33 by etak etak

The fresh and consistent design makes this a real standout and many of the effects are unique or at least presented in a unique way.

can someone explain me why this just got 3. ?
added on the 2006-03-08 14:20:07 by xeNusion xeNusion
very pleasent colorsheme and design.
Because the music was so calm all the time, the whole production seemed to miss it's peak, sadly.
Endlogo is the burner.
rulez added on the 2006-03-08 14:38:24 by d0DgE d0DgE
this was really nice. loved the design. though codingwise it was not too exicitng.
@xenusion: imho top three were very hard to call. "nothing" looked better than this and had a more interesting concept. and "caret" was all software implemented. that's my two cents.
rulez added on the 2006-03-08 14:38:32 by nightlord nightlord
color is bit like sonik clique amigaish dunno, i found it ok. alien logo at end deserves thumb up:)
rulez added on the 2006-03-08 16:06:50 by uns3en_ uns3en_
I found the design a bit ordinary, but a really really nice prod nevertheless.

(vincsi: na látod ez most jó volt! :)
rulez added on the 2006-03-08 17:10:20 by Gargaj Gargaj
_extremely_ dated and some stuff is just too ordinary or old (the wireframes, the geometry, the linear interpolate on the all animation, the unattractive noise layers.. i just cant thumb stuff like that :) )..
but it's showing an improvement, and the design is consistent. :)
seems like you had a couple of pieces of artwork (logo, robot) and had to fill the rest with coder-generated stuff.
nice music.

design is very good, really nice prod :)

For those who had problems running this prod and got a crash on 59% of the loading, this should fix it.. www.spacerobe.com/vamecum/zephiaDebug.exe

for those with out fbo support who got a ugly noise-show, it will not fix anything.

This one was nice!! Nothing fancy in visuallly, but it was well designed and had some nice effects like the dirty/grainy ones. I like the text usage for each scene. Nice music.

Good atmosphere and potent design. But old and boring content/fx. So 2000 !
Feels empty.

the middle screenshot effect was the best part of the whole demo. nice to see that these guys are trying to make some decent design too. the colours made the demo even better. some small fixes on the music here and there would make it even better, but thats just some minor detalj thing... okay. now im waiting for the Breakpoint demo from you guys. and hopefully its gonna rock the Breakpoint bigscreen this eastern or am I wrong?. Cya there!

very nicely finished and mastered, but a bit too repetitive to be lovely; and cube demos never did it for me.
