twould appear it's still in the scene.org incoming directory.

I don't actually have the release zip, funnily enough, but here's a (temporary) link to the actual exe until the zip gets moved.

Sorry, it's really crap.

Come on, it isn't that bad.
The music sucks and the mousepointer wasn't disabled but still no reason to thumb it down (using the C64 charset compensated it ;-)

the tro was not that bad, but the "music" destroyed, piggy

I quickly tried the version linked above on my 3yo laptop. All I got was a bunch of white-ish spots at the top of the screen. The music sounded like a 4K :\ and the whole thing hanged and killed my video settings ... so gar so bad. Will try on a more recent computer.

This was fun. Love the sync with the parachuters. :)

I think this was quite funny.

I didnt like the weird black and white parts, but i liked the rest of it.

Strange but cool.

It's actually cool.

The asphalt "texture" and the spike ball don't really fit.

I wonder how much of that could be done in a 4k.

Interesting: low quality gfx + simple postprocessing-like effect = quite decent result

i was missing some letters :D maybe corrupt .exe? :D anyways, was cool.. the music needed more fuck'dupness imo :)
rulez added on the 2007-04-04 19:46:35 by psenough psenough
i liked the black n white dots, black and white antimoney-like rendering, but as soon as colors appeared this thing turned into a horrid beast. music is kinda dull too. piggy

I like it! It as a nice design and effects, and the music is not that bad.

This is crap and good at the same time.

after seeing the screenshot i expected something completely awful, but it was quite ok. although the rendering is mostly just painful for the eyes
added on the 2007-04-05 14:39:01 by hollowman hollowman
Haha, actually quite funny.
rulez added on the 2007-04-05 14:48:00 by eye eye
the music was so unbelievably horrid that i had to press ESC before the thing was finished, sorry.

Hey! I loved this so much!!! The funny blocky rendering and the various wild filters (some of them reminds me of antimoney) with chippy music and great sync, that's so koooll, come on people!

nice one :)

This prod definitely worked for me. I loved the idea and the execution a lot. Great stuff!

Many god ideas included, but must of them are hard to see - or hard to watch.
added on the 2007-04-06 11:07:18 by JAC! JAC!
good ideas and well done. just a bit too messy sometimes.

Generally fine - but not really a thumb up. However, it's a pity that the cars don't stop when the traffic light shows red...

nice effects, somehow between piggy and rulez... =)

This was interesting. Very different.
I liked it, but the fonts were screwed on my machine, and the music just wasn't good.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 01:19:30 by sinikk sinikk
the music was so unbelievably horrid that i had to keep watching.

now i also seemed to have the same problem as ps (interestingly broken letters) which i thought was very fitting, but alas the syndrome disappeared on the second run.
rulez added on the 2007-04-13 07:44:33 by Gargaj Gargaj
gargaj/sinikk/ps/corrupt text people ... what's up with that? what's your cpu/gfx card? I can't seem to get it to do anything other than run properly.

... but then again, if it runs right the second time around, maybe I'll never see it fuck up.

could just be that it's time I started using hardware newer than 5-6 years old ;)

by the way, the music is awesome. you should have heard it _before_ (!)

That's a resized screenshot. The text is mostly unreadable. Video card is an ATI X700 Pro with Catalyst 7.3 drivers. CPU is an Athlon 64 3700+. All of the text is like that.

cool style.

sinikk: that looks pretty cool! Thanks for making the screeny - hadn't seen it quite like that yet ;)

if you're feeling extra generous with your time, try this version here and drop me a mail letting me know how you go (ript at disasterarea.net)
added on the 2007-07-12 08:48:09 by ript ript
OK. Now, for some reason, it's working. The normal version, I haven't tried the one you linked. I cannot figure this out. I swear I just restarted it and it worked. Now I'm confused.
added on the 2007-07-14 06:20:33 by sinikk sinikk
Great music!

Boring at the beginning, but ends nicely.
added on the 2007-07-23 12:00:00 by 0xF 0xF

my criticism is twofold:
- music needs more punch
- flow needs more punch (but this would sortof automatically happen when you'd use a shorter punchier soundtrack)

Ugly as hell but really fun concept. :)
