ausflug 2.0! =) there could be some more of the small details, like the money transaction thingie, but all in all this is very different and refreshing. and those who might find it "boring", should ask themselves if they only want to get "entertained" the fast way all the time... i for my part enjoy a nice concept more than a conceptless effect overdose.

and the soundtrack my kritix was a really nice comeback. not the stuff i expect from him, but even more nice! i hope he keeps on with scene activities now.

I was about to add it without even fearing the bm's party-release-complains-division, here is a screenshot at least.

Good demo.

yeah! very refreshing style, excellent choice of colors and what i like the most: it's friendly (and not depressive/evil like 90% of the demo stuff). the soundtrack is also quite catchy. i want more.. :)

Stylish indeed, and the music fits perfectly. Some kind of a climax would've been nice, but Dipswitch has a point.

i'd love it in 64k.
well, is it possible that it changed the gamma / brightness / contrast settings of my videocard? :/

Plays more like a music video than a demo, but that's not a bad thing. Would have been happier with a bit more variation (I would have liked to see the 'world' grow a bit more), but the concept is cool and the music is good quality and fits well.

The old familiar city theme is back. Though it's too much of an one-large-3d-scene player to be really enjoyable.
added on the 2006-04-19 08:53:41 by tomaes tomaes
Yeah, really nice 4k...
Oh wait, this is a demo ;)
This is the kind of stuff I hoped never to see again

managed to stand out in the compo. nice concept, advanced visual style and fitting music. would love to see much more of those microscopic interaction details (like money transfer) in order to create a lively city cosmos, but major thumb for the approach anyway :) !

The design is absolutely kicking my brain. Perfect.
rulez added on the 2006-04-19 14:58:41 by iks iks
It looks quite stylish, but I've seen this stuff a million times already. Add to the fact that it's boring and repetetive.

Plus, it's 2006, how about some textures on your vectors! This doesn't look much more advanced than some of the early A500 vector demos.

Disappointing as Black Maiden usually put out some great quality stuff!

i loved this but admittedly we did discuss the possibility of a 4k version :)
rulez added on the 2006-04-19 15:53:44 by Gargaj Gargaj
OK, it's not one of the best demos ever, but it was definitely the most outstanding demo of the otherwise extremely monotonic compo. I like the style, but I'd also love to see that in <=64k.

Rather numedia. And seen before.

I like the demo, but it lacks of content and message.
really close to 'sucks'... but still pig!
this material is okayish for a 64k intro, but i like the mood. so no 'sucks' today!

Good demo.
rulez added on the 2006-04-21 05:40:34 by ALiEN^bf ALiEN^bf
tough one.. really good style, ideas etc. but i think it needs a little more detail to really rule.. perhaps more people, and some interaction between them. Pig for now... will await final (and hope there is one ;)

i really like the soundtrack, but the idea and style feels so old and stale now.
added on the 2006-05-06 18:50:04 by smash smash
not too bad, but this came 4th out of 30?? the demo compo must have been even weaker than i though
The music and concept brought me to my mind the video from Remind Me by Röyksopp. I liked the demo when saw it live @ DTV.

i know, it's barely more than one scene, but i have to admit that i lap up the 3d map stuff. plus i like the music.

oh, and it could've really used some anti-aliasing too.. oh well.
added on the 2007-02-24 01:01:12 by phoenix phoenix
Smooth animations, very good music, and the whole concept made me thing a bit. The only minus is the lack of antialiasing.

Nice idea... But a little bit to long as demo... Nevertheless thumb up...
rulez added on the 2007-07-11 20:20:30 by s7ing_ATZ s7ing_ATZ
Great idea. I like the style, pace, flow, how the music fits.
Though, it is obvious that you have been rushing the assemblling throug a bit too much, A pity because the scene seemed detailed.
In contradiction to others, I do not think it is too long. The length fits the flow. The length is required to give the monotone feeling of the setup.

My biggest problem is that it runs too slow. A demo in this style REALLY needs to run oneframe. And it does not nearly do that in my end.

Hmmm, thumb, pig, thumb, pig... Well, thumb :)

kinda samey, way too little actual action. the music has some problems too which are a bit hard to explain... but, i just so happen to love the visual style so...
rulez added on the 2012-12-10 07:16:12 by noby noby
After rewatching it after a couple of years it felt like story demo for me - one does go up floors in live, sometimes it does feel like doing circles, and sometimes you meet persons and split up again.
I'm not even drunk, but I might need another coffee <3

Beautiful demo with an outstanding soundtrack. The map scene was a missed opportunity for greetings though

Not bad but... this could be done in 64K and perhaps even in 4K.
