i love the way varying fx are linked toghether with similar style gfx.
good fx, good music and good gfx. this is how a demo should be.

cougar is pretty skilled with the pixels, the module by jester is also very good. but i don't really like the design and i don't think it fits well with the music. Some of the effects are cool, like the voxel landscape and the 3d morphing. The face morpher is funny =)

How strange? This is very similar to roots 2.0 by the same group. What happened???
added on the 2003-05-09 13:02:51 by Optimus Optimus
roots 2.0 is just the final version? :)
rulez added on the 2003-05-09 19:00:31 by jar jar
yes. and chaos has been pretty disappointed since mr.pet didn't made it to the party. as 1994 was pre-internet his effects couldn't get included in the demo. that's why the demo looks so beta.
anyway, i liked it. Esp. the precalculated 1x1 50 fps tilt-rotator rocked big time on the chip-mem only, 14 MHz A1200.

Thumb up for the music

Yeah, Jester did a great work. But there is good conding, too. Thx to noname for the information.

"As 1994 was pre-internet"? Come again? Anyway, I found this just as hugely disappointing as 99.9% of the AGA demos back then. Even Jester's music seems to have been somehow influenced by the gfx chipset.. :)

that 4 colour mountain part kicks ass.. also the 3d rotozoomer. The experimental art in here is really crazy.. Lots of energy in it.. I wish the entire demo was a bit like those pics.

Good one.

even the final version didn't fit to me.
i don't put thumb down because of Cougar art and some good stuffs ...

There was a huge expectation buildup around this one for TP94. Didn't turn out as great as it could have though. But Cougar and Jester were great, so I'll thumb it up.
rulez added on the 2006-07-21 15:42:42 by Archmage Archmage
unfinished. thumb up for the music and some of the efx.

Still remember how sad was I in early '95 when I realised that my favourite group went for AGA and I was unable to run this on my almost bare A600. But later the final version inludes some stuff for me:)
Baah memories so old...

Another old favourite.

Very underrated demo... Cthulu pictures are amazing and very original. Impressive code as usual with Sanity.

Haven't thumbed up this before?

Btw,. what's the story with this and number 2.0? Why roots 1.0 seems to be an unfinished preview of 2.0?
