First asd project I pressed the esc button with. What a disappointment after seeing the great animal one from TG06.

Navis showed us this demo at the democrew room at TG06 after the prize ceremony. A very different demo, but great visuals and nice idea.

Different but little boring. One scene, a few not interesting effects looks like rather a glitches. Not bad, but far from good. Piggydemo.
asd goes satori! really, REALLY cool (and different) - it takes balls to go there. excellent music and the ending was neat :)

why did you kill my ears? Loved your "prog rock" "prog demo" style. overrated for beeing so different? Could only give a good rating if something of it would have been good. Nothing special here. Only noise with some amusing effects. :( so why?

I must add that the demo can run on non-ps2.0 cards. BUT, it will look a bit different.

So you know the drill... Just watch it on a ps2.0 machine or wait for a video that will inevitably appear soon.

Really worked for me.. incredibly effective imo.
and that music yes.. awesome :)

very good and nice to see some different style. music is superb. the only annoying thing was the noise of the alarmclock that sounded too familiar... :)

finally asd demo that is not bullshit asd style.

it's not that good it should and could be, but thumbs up for making something that tries to be good, instead of that mainstream bullshit that majority of sceners wants you to do.

ps. the demo is quite nice too. I enjoyed it way more than iconoclast and planet risk...

I`m wondering if this hasn`t played correctly. If it has then it sucks big time. All I see is the effect in the screen shot flying all over the place with flashes of white etc.

Mental knowing.. We never do drugs.. (Unless of course you consider normal smoking as drug use).

This also is a message to other greek demogroups. Wake up and release demos!

Plante Risk.....Wow!
Iconoclast......Absolute HAMMER-like!! What a almost perfect SHOW!!

So WHY did you guys do THIS now!? :-(
This is not your style?
This reminds of those really useless NOISY-trash-demos like 'minimal-animal' or whatever! :-(

Have you had a 'second coder division' of yours doing this or what could be the reason for such a really NOT cool demo? :-/

Really sad to see this. I think it's way overrated here.
And the 3rd at bp06 is probably only cause there haven't been (m)any other entries after that one at all.

Still this demo doesn's deserve being 3rd in my opinion.
You already do and DID _way_ better with your other releases! So why this absolutely NOT-fitting SHOCK for your fans now? :-/

It's really hard for me now but I have to thumb you down for this sadly!! PLEASE change back to 'cool' quality again! ;-)

sucks added on the 2006-04-18 16:42:21 by Weasel Weasel
kudos for not keeping your act together by doing art and not following public demand. eventhough i also found it quite a strange demo i must say it's far from comparable to stuff like minimalanimal, given that it still has the ASD feeling and style inside. PUTA! to amusic for making undancable music, you know why ;))
