As with your Assembly release, this placed way too low. Some issues (poly clipping and a few scenes being shown for too long) aside, a nice and solid demo. Looking forward to more Adapt stuff.

nice shaders and effects... but something is missing once again, making this demo a bit too average. adapt is very promising new group anyway.

Adapt is love <3
And janne, no shaders here..

Hm, what a trully strange demo ! I think that these guys can be up to something here. Give it a couple of years and they will come back with a very very solid demo.

Minus points ? Rather horrible camera work, and the demo was probably a bit too long for the content.

hmmm... it´s a nice prod. nothing outstanding but nice... ranked 9th? come on... that must be a joke.

Yeah I also think this was too long and somehow not very interesting. Some very nice effects here though.

What navis said, plus also it needs a little something to link it together and give it flow. Funny, I was thinking it was almost like an ASD demo, but without the theme feel while watching it too! Perhaps you need an artist to give some design?

yes.. nice effects and stuff, but a bit boring

Seriously undervoted. Really enjoyable demo, really good demo to start the compo off with.
Pretty enjoyable but could have been shorter. The best windows demo of Stream'06 by far.

nice cube.
heavily missing 2d graphics.

looking good. kicking soundtrack, nice effects & mood.

pretty nice, though kinda boring and visuals are messy here and there. liked your asm demo much more...

I love the messyness in this demo, this is real dope :) Should have definately won.

Demo's messy outlook isn't my thing, but music and those effects really are.
rulez added on the 2006-09-18 18:17:01 by rale rale
special kudos for the range of colors :)

blur effect is overused imho...

extremely boring.

The demo itself didn't really manage to catch my attention and would normally be rated pigface, but still: an upward thumb for the music. Cool.

nice cube deformer.
great soundtrack.
a bit boring.
but, good overall.

Not bad, but not catchy enough...
added on the 2006-09-19 21:57:09 by T$ T$
Pretty, but somehow it's missing something. Somehow it doesn't feel very... well... immersive, and it had a sort of 2002-ish feel to it. I did like the effects though.
added on the 2006-09-19 22:13:05 by noouch noouch
Nice abstract feeling + music. Should have placed higher. The general idea is missing, but the flow is somewhat good.

somewhat boring but still very nice. a cube and a light source can never go wrong ;)

+ cube deformer
+ soundtrack. (esp those sawtooth choords and the drums).
felt a bit long..
- Camera moves really suck. A bit more floating and slow moves would have fitted the track better..
- Colours felt too psychedelic and aimless for me.
- A bit long.

i'm not convinced
rulez added on the 2006-09-22 11:23:14 by wie8 wie8
some nice effects i don't really want to watch for several minutes.
Unlike anything I've ever seen before. And since it was different in a good way, you get a thumb.

I would tend to agree it essentially had one effect, and it was a little on the long side, but all in all solid.

i got bored with it, sorry

I really love this production. Especially the water drop scene. You should have left the text layers out, though.

Totally missed that one, that will teach me to watch only the highly ranked prods of the compo.

Totally weird but totally cool (some parts were a little bit long)

Thumb totally up of course :)

When watching this demo, you don't doubt the skills of the coder (or the entire crew, for that matter) and the demo does have a nice, seamless flow, I think.
Still, a tad boring. Piggy.

okay.. gets a little messy/tedious at times.

adapt will end someday in asd'esque. balanced pig.

i liked it very much, mainly because of good syncs of soundtrack and visuals, which together became a really good flow. btw, text on the credits and greetings didn't feet to the rest, in my opinion.

Best one they've done, beautiful. That disc-to-ribbon transform is one of the most luscious effects I've seen in a long time.
