This demo I think will become a classic
with time. It needs to grow on you.
Actually the story seems to be centered
to be a dream. (hence a few strange
stuff like this teddy bear in the spaceship
part) I think the dreamy atmosphere is quite
well done, and the soundtrack is very nice and
really adds to the mood. Not an effect demo, but
I think a nice story demo finally...

If you ever need a demo to show to your non-scene friends, or your dad, or girlfriend, make it this one.. I agree that it grows on you, I disliked it the first I saw it, but then I felt the urge to watch it again and again.. this is truly epic stuff.

the graphics and music are really good, but one word: kitsch. also it somehow seems to lack design, i really can't see any continuity of the scenes.

a long and amazing demo that needs to be watched in a dark room and with headphones, so that you then can be totally immerged into it ...

cool story of a planet, where habitants are oppressed and go to crystals for protect them. I like it. it's poesie, and emotionnal for brains wich can understand ,']
booooo, i can't run it, it hangs itself somewhere in the middle (both versions) :-(((((
added on the 2001-04-06 19:28:37 by crs crs
Am I the only one having the general protection fault about halfway through it? I can tun other demos, just not this one.
Mine won't run,
if I start it up I get a Splash screen and than an error message that the requested texture is too big

Attention: the Purple version downloadable on Pouet.net is the high-quality version, that requires a hi-end pc config with plenty of ram, mhz & 3D board. You can download the low-quality version (mucho easy for most hardware configurations) at http://www.orion-tribe.org/purple.htm

Hmmm, will I get shot when I say that this is one of the most boring and overrated productions I know?
added on the 2001-05-28 01:10:49 by ryg ryg
Purple is a really great demo, with many great scenes, and also a great soundtrack. It is, however, quite long, and you need a "patient" state of mind... :)

Orion should tell us which of their member is a Starcraft fan. Crystals? Alien ships resembling Protoss carriers? It can't be a coincidence! :-) The demo is long, most of the graphics are good. The music themes are also good, but very different from each-other. They did not fit together imho. Some 3D scenes also seem to choke the AGP bus on my GF2MX with textures. I watched the final version btw. Overall, an 'ok' prod. Not bad, not exceptional either.

(a Protoss Archon would make a nice addition though... :P)

This was about the most boring piece of 3d-flyby you can fit in a huge 17 MB package. Maybe it's just me but I didn't see any effects, not to mention synchronization.. (ok maybe there was a sine-wobble somewhere)

Definately not worth the download, definately not worth >5 minutes of your life.

ryg and matvei are right, and this one is one of the most boring and (if not THE) most overrated demos i've ever seen.

french demo ratings differ a lot from reality ;)

nice gfx and sound ... and there is a story and some sort of design behind it.
rulez added on the 2001-11-04 08:39:15 by xeNusion xeNusion
I have a serious bone to pick with this demo. There's a valiant attempt at some sort of 'deep' storyline. But it's so so so flakey and pointless. It doesn't even make too much sense!

There's a serious air of prentension surrounding this production, but all it manages to do is fall flat on it's face. Too bad, because other Orion demos are quite decent.
it's true that there is some boring 3d-flybyes I usually don't like at all..

..this demo instead somehow feels very magical.
rulez added on the 2001-12-18 00:04:58 by droid droid
magic, exactly!
bigup to the créme des connards for the HUGE work provided... i forgot to give it a thumbs up earlier, shame on me =)

3d-flybyes aren't my cup of tea either, but the gfx-quality of this demo is downright fantastic.

A very stylish demo, sadly the 2D gfx are a bit too low resolution ones for this prod. The music fits the atmosphere well. Candy.

wow... what a demo! I like the music very much.. I love it! I'm doing the music for a new 3d demo and I heard the tune of this demos quite often just to listen how it is done..
It's very pathetic and I like that..!
This demo is a really masterpiece and it's a shame it's not more famous that it is...
Or well.. perhaps it is, it's probably just me not noticing.. :-)
rulez added on the 2002-09-20 09:16:26 by phred phred
a slight kitsch tendency (story is way too b&w), but music rules (the rock part in the trailer doesn't really fit in, but sounds great nonetheless). and everything's just really really nice to look at.

definitely worth the download, definitely worth 5 minutes of your life.

A different way of making demos, I think. Impressive music that fits the mood of the visuals. Appropiate gfx, what else do you want? Nothing! Yeah! It RULEZ!
this reminded me more of a gameintro than a demo, slowgoing and the music could be better and there should be more diversity!

Pretty different as the most Orion demos, but different in a very nice way.
