The best Accelerated demo at this time...
added on the 2000-07-21 10:09:29 by Kassoulet Kassoulet
Very cute style. I don't think it's the best accelerated demo(IMHO) but its one of my three favourites (accelerated)

all screens are really beautifull and very well designed, another masterpiece from Unreal...
added on the 2000-09-09 16:15:28 by rez rez
A really well designed demo, a good syncro with music, very good 3D effects. But, I don't understand the end, such an unexpected cut.

good design

oh yes. the most beautiful pc demo i've ever seen.

This is probably the first quality OpenGL demo I saw. 1st place at Gravity 99, September 1999, btw. Runs smooth on a TNT2.

Probably my fave accelerated demo
rulez added on the 2001-10-04 04:18:06 by mac mac
very nice indeed. I think there is something wrong with my workstation-setup, since parts of this demo ran in less than 20fps (gf2mx 1200mhz athlon).

good colors, good synch with music
but too much layers for my taste
More of this, PLEASE! ^_^
rulez added on the 2002-01-03 01:00:40 by Vip Vip
The colors are actually a bit off in every scene. but overall this demo eats most others for breakfast. Oh, and the music is divine ;)
rulez added on the 2002-01-03 01:59:59 by Shifter Shifter
Thumbs up for this piece!
Awesome visuals, and a chilling soundtrack.
I love the 'wicked' part of the music (at the credz part).
rulez added on the 2002-01-10 03:16:39 by Gargaj Gargaj
Like Tesla, a classic. Period.

Clean style, fast code, good music (not as good as the tesla tune, but still cool).
Lacks sync (no reaction to the guitars) and concept/meaning (but that's ok, there is enough eye/ear-candy that keeps you entertained...).

very "demo", which isn't necessarily a bad thing. the track enhances this feeling..

feels like a long groupeffort

This is too amazing. Runs smoothly in older machines aswell.

somehow nothing has evolved since this.
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 12:52:14 by droid droid
As with many others, one of the first accelerated demos I ever saw. And it is awesome nevertheless...
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 12:58:17 by moT moT
A really cool demo, if there wasn't that additive-layers-until-the-screen-is-white madness and the good sounding but senseless music. I won't say it rulez, but I wouldn't miss it either.

I haven't voted for this? damn! this rocks :)
rulez added on the 2002-05-08 10:58:37 by teel teel
Overrated, though not a bad demo. Good music and graphics, yet I was unmoved by the slow pace and abstract effects.

Excellent Synchronized Demo.

Am I the only one with the win2k problem?
added on the 2003-01-11 23:36:58 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
still beautiful in a maximalist sort of way.. a little too much motion blur perhaps.. the 2d art was very well done.. very interesting credits part.. music's not bad and is synced alright but didn't really seem to fit the mood of the visuals..
rulez added on the 2003-01-12 00:23:51 by dyscotopia dyscotopia
Started the multiple translucent layers era..
added on the 2003-02-18 11:01:02 by Optimus Optimus
I see this as a 'true' hardware demo... It's not doing the regular software stuff on hardware, but it does stuff that would be impossible in software... Creative (ab)use of fillrate.
rulez added on the 2003-04-16 03:02:56 by Scali Scali

One of the first hardware accelerated demos actually worth watching. The effects still kick ass, after five years.

Amazing, this demo really was way ahead of it's time, it's hard to belive that it was released well over 5 years ago.

You'll have to watch that prod 4-5 times to really see all the stuff in it (such as in some T-Rex prods)!
Beautiful music and particular mood.

Didn't like it then, don't like it now. Additive layers != design.

Overloaded but still quite beautiful. The credits part is likely the most original one but there really was nothing like this back when this was released. It's interesting how all the sunflower demos are really different styles, this reminds me of older stuff that statix's earlier stuff a bit.

a classic one
rulez added on the 2006-02-02 00:28:00 by NuKem NuKem
At the time it was the wake-up call to start coding decent stuff for 3d gfxcards. Definately one of the best sunflower/pulse demos! Unreal rules big time.

I like that kind of abstract scenes in such colors, nicely synchronized with music. It's enyojable even after 20 years.
rulez added on the 2019-06-22 13:57:45 by vdr vdr
Very nice, actually. Like special credits scrolling effect near ending and so on.

By the way, it runs under modern versions of Windows, but sound will be broken.
