This was really cool. Definitely one of the best entries in the competition.

lovely dancing fractals, but the comic sans totally got in the way

the font manages to almost totally destroy an otherwise nice and quite different demo

I like originality and creativity. The vector style was cool too. But minus points from the comic sans. :-P

some of the dancing fractals were cute, but man this was too long and, well, comic sans is satan.

ugly font and colours. nice idea, but not my cup of tea.

wicked sync and music, psychedelic visuals and a spinning tavja, very nice indeed! :)

My favourite demo at this party, i know, the font sucked, but here i tell you why:

-It was _not_ dark
-Music kept me from drifting into sleep

Later on at the competition i was in a comatose phase...didnt remember much of the others...

Serious bass and guitar work. Definately rulez.
rulez added on the 2007-08-05 15:07:19 by suorm suorm
It should state somewhere in the compo rules, that using comic sans fonts gets you disqualified by default. The rest was actually cute and did not suck at all.

Would make a nice 64k but it's just too few for a demo

this was fun for about 30 seconds and just got immensely annoying afterwards. i don't have anything against quick+fun releases, but this went on and on and ON with the same effect over and over again (just different textures). if you only have enough material for 30 seconds, then make a 30 seconds demo, ffs.

Some nice looking fractals but it's way too long
sucks added on the 2007-08-05 15:51:34 by dairos dairos
Comic sans? Please.

And it could use another effect. The fractal twisting looks nice, but gets a bit boring.

This is fun ... for about 20 seconds. The rest is poor.

funky and nice but ugly font and too long. also, you guys got some really boring handles...
added on the 2007-08-06 17:24:40 by prm prm
As ryg says, there is not material for a demo so long. I even doubt if the fractals were calculated or they were a texture. My suggestions:

1. If you calculate the fractals, make it evident :)
2. Make music for the demo, not demo for the music
3. Keep in mind what you want to transmit with the image. Once transmitted, change the scene!

Glad to see that you contributed to Assembly with a demo also :D

A video capture is now available.

DivX (75MB),

YouTube (crappy quality):

Much of the compatibility problems emerge from the heavy shaders for which opengl provides no information if hardware can't run them.

i hate the pink font on white screens, otherwise this demo is pretty cool.

This was pretty good as a break from the rest in the compo, but went on way too long perhaps. Also, I was really craving a zooming fractal instead of the warping effect.

As a demo it's kinda dull, but the music rocks.

liked the idea for the first moments, the polar rotating fractal texture is quite nice. the rest is shit and the comic sans is simply hideous. wayyyy too stretched.

I wanted to press escape, which earns an automatic thumbs down, but the concept is kinda fresh so I will give a piggy instead.

There are a whole load of great fonts out there - Comic sans isn't one of them! And the white screens felt like something was missing - I ran it on three machines before I realised that it was just how the demo was supposed to look. The music was great and I liked the vibe but just needed a bit more pace. Looking forward to watching your future demos though :-)

Who cares if it includes Comic Sans it is still a very clever demo!

funky innovative, pleasing colorscheme.
who the fuck cares about comic sans or that it's only one effect, if it's entertaining?

Thumbs up otherwise, but the drums are pretty bad in an otherwise fine track, and the of course comic sans...
