Most ideas are from Little Nell by TBL.
Ripping sucks.

first half is just great and then it all goes downhill with its pistols, blood sprays and other teenage angst attrubites... still it's a worthy winner and crolyx' most polished demo to date. keep it up!

Very atmospheric and impressive !!

City with flying particles, swing, bird, etc.

"flying particles" ? "swing" ? are u kidiing ? maybe lets say that tbl has ripped those fxs from some demo too ? lol ;)
and - what "bird" are you talking about ?
added on the 2006-08-29 14:49:42 by djinn djinn
just watch LN and you'll get my idea

Nap, come on, stop crying and do something better.

Really good demo. I like the particle effects and some scenes look great. Oh i can't see any ripping here. Good work Crolyx , keep it up.

That was A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!.!.

It looked absolutely beautiful, great code, gfx and music and it all works so well together! Very impressive!!

Only 2 small complaints:

1. it's 2006 and we shouldn't be running demos in 640x480. Give us more screenmodes to choose from!

2. The fast switching scenes was annoying, didn't fit the flow and looked kinda tacky.

Otherwise, a massive thumb up!!!

btw I can see a few inspirations from Little Nell, but no ripping!

Besides, this looks a lot better anyway so it improves on whatever inspiration has been taken!
the timeshifting whilst the leaves are flying through the window did it for me. rest is worth the mention as well, although support for (way) higher resolutions is a must for a beauty like this.
music doesn't do the visuals justice, but overall this is still a rulezer.
rulez added on the 2006-08-29 16:32:11 by keith303 keith303
both the striking scenes and music build a very ambient demo!

here is a demo with (tortured?) soul :)

Crashes here when that (terrible) melody starts and leaves are floating on water.

Keep up the good work dudes.

2Zest: good to hear that somebody looked in demo files!
these two photos were contributed to "photo compo" on Chaos Constructions2006, but were preselected, because of limit of entries, so I decided to include it in demo archive ;)

I like the mood and overall feeling here. Very nice. And there might be a little(!) bit of Little Nell at the beginning but it fits very well! Great demo!

wow, I absolutely second keith303. Those slowmo halts when the leaves are flying through the window are very touching. I don't like the hectic parts either, I think it should have focused on slow movements and motives. But overall, massive thumb up.

I very much a long ago saw nothing of the kind on the Russian scene. Idea + execution + mood = my own bullet of autumn!!! COOL!

actually, it looks not so kewl at home, after party.
but when i saw this prod first time on a big screen, i was (as the people said) "totally blown away". it makes me tear, really.
especially the "fast switching scenes" which is perfectly fit with the soundtrack imresses me so much, and the atmosphere of all black with only red autumn leaves...
unexpected, unbeliveable, unbeatable.
even the last demo "gaia" can't beat this prod :)

Had a theme and not just abstractness. that is applaudable!
rulez added on the 2006-08-31 18:31:27 by vame vame
I would have liked :
- less beats in the music
- more free linear camera moves
- offset the leaves origin from the center and the rotation and wind like behaviour will look more real.

there is something which is off in the pace of the graphics.

I like the idea with the crazy living leaves.

Shite! Direction and style so bizarre! Really gloomy. lifeless characters, in an environment not dark, but so very expressively lifeless!

I think that demo actually kinda disturbed me. Granted, I have no idea what was going on since it was rather nonlinear, other than that the guy got shot, started spewing out leaves, fell over and exploded into leaves.
rulez added on the 2006-09-02 06:54:32 by crusader crusader
Creative thinking with the leaves.

Beautiful symbolism; finally a demo dealing with these kindof things in a very very human way.
My only gripe is the somewhat lowrez approach - the bilineared overlays were rather distracting.

Still, some scenes seemed quite unfitting - like why was the sky blueish all the time, not b&w ? it looked inappropriate. coloured leaves during the scenes with that guy's b&wed face on the center were also quite a laugh-a-by.

But, still, overally, i enjoyed sleeping motion very much and so did with this baby. good work!

This demo is riding the fine line between art and kitsch.. and sometimes it seems to fall of to the wrong side.

I liked the leaves though.

good feeling/atmosphere
but the human figures ? are they supposed to be humans, wax sculptures or scarecrows ? some details would have made it much richer, like putting wind in the little girl's dress ;)
the gun is maybe a bit overloaded, but overall great job !

Something rude (the human models..), something nice (good scenes, feeling, particles, cameras). But overall a very compact demo by a seemingly talented guys. By looking also your previous demos I just can say that keep up the good work guys.
