i remember thinking "this would've been better with different music". the music isn't bad, but it didn't go that well with the visuals, which were pretty nice. piggy.

a lot of inspiration from ASD... well, didn't like that solemn music very much (the instruments chosen just don't match my taste at all).
but, unlike other demos in this compo, my finger kept far away from the <esc> button.

i actually really loved the music. Visuals were a bit too asdish, and it takes a shitload of effort to match demo visuals to this kind of music...

very asd'ish, and on the blurred videostream it looked like they almost managed to pull it off. but being able too see the models and textures properly now it isnt as good. but as already said, a very decent prod.

I liked it, nice looking effects and good soundtrack.

rock music is not good for demos, but it looks really nice and ASD-ish.

Visuals and audio didn't match at all, there's no synch, no relation between image and sound... I'm sorry but I can't thumb up this prod.

Great demo, and very nice symphonic rock tune!

power metal lives again !
music is not my cup of tea and doesn't suit the graphics too wel, graphics which are too buggy to be pleasant.
better luck next time :)

not sure yet what to make of it

you need to improve some thing to reach ASD, but anyway is a really good demo.
The music rocks!!! i love it! Don't listen comments that say "rock music in demos sucks" :P

what maali said, still good
I voted this for the musics only. But the demo was cool too.

A shame it didn't place.

Yet again much improvement from last year. It sort of looks like you've taken a bit too large a bite to chew, as it is a bit uneven in parts. The music should also have more to do with the visuals I guess, the song was pretty epic and the visuals didn't quite match it. The good stuff included at least the trees, the screenshot scene, the clouds, the music and lots of small things :)

Overall, very nice if not overly ambitious work . Looking forward to the next one!

I see a lot of potential there. The soundtrack was enjoyable although I'd like some more punchiness for a power/epic metal track.

The visuals would really benefit from some subtlety.

All in all, you got something going there.. work on it and you'll be legneds =P

this one i liked, nice music, nice scenes, some not so nice but overall thumb up :)
rulez added on the 2007-08-06 17:32:53 by Sapphire Sapphire
i liked the white lines effect.
the rest seemed to bland compared to what asd has used us with this sort of soundtrack.
shows potential, hope they get their own style sometime soon though.

Really an OK demo. But the music ruins most of it.Otherwise I would thumb it up.
Whats up with all this Computermade metal music lately? It really sounds so corny and cheezy. Sample real guitar riffs if you want it to sound right. (like "Beertime X" by dekadence, where the music actually works)

And whats up with that Steve Irvin killing fish in the forrest?

okay, for effort so here is your rulez.
im looking forward for your next demo

hmm, the visuals do not go well with the music.. There's a nice effort.. looking forward to next one..

one of those demos that unfortunately drowned in the huge load of great demos from asm. it has it's good moments and bad moments, but still it is a solid effort.

some nice stuff but for me this was too boring and ugly for a thumb.
added on the 2007-08-07 14:26:26 by prm prm
Nice tune, nice visuals... but I have the feeling that there are only a few scenes where they really fit together. Anyway, thumbs up.

another ASD-inspired prod with some übergreat scenes, i've enjoyed it a lot :)
rulez added on the 2007-08-08 22:08:29 by Zest Zest
The music has too much energy and the visuals too few movement, so they doesn't fit

For this, you need to add more energy to the graphics and faster camera movements (max. 10 seconds with the same camera, for example)

I see very much potential behind this demo. Let's see if you can find your own style in the next one :)

Really first-rate design and effects! The visuals were not as polished as they could be, and the music was too over-the-top, but everything else was a dream. Thank you for making my day.

What a pleasant surprise - I really enjoyed watching this one! Had some pretty decent effects and good performance even on higher resolutions. Nice One!

For those with a new Nvidia card experiencing the z-buffer problem mentioned in the readme: just set your card to a fixed 4x AA but select "No antialiasing" in the demo menu. That way you will have both - antialiasing and working z-buffer.

a mixed bag of a demo, some effects feel messy to me and the music doesn't really suit the prod, but with a little more polish it would've been something special so a thumb overall

Couple of nice effects. Music is ok but doesn't really fit to the demo.

Division's best demo. Truly awesome music and I thought also the sync with the visuals was pretty good.

(why didn't i thumb up already?)

I have encountered the AA/z buffer issue on Nvidia, but forcing FXAA in the NV panel works too.

It seems that if your Windows mixer settings aren't at 48khz, the music is slowed/sped up.
