I like the idea of a demo based on one object morphing into all kind of shapes (different tunnels, ceiling, mountain,...). Original idea and very well executed. And really cool soundtrack. A coding showcase. Well worth checking out.

Showbase Shape or "C-Lous go serious"... it's a good demo with an interesting concept (the same shape morphing trough the different part of the demo) but frankly I miss a bit the imaginative bullshits of their earlier productions.
Anyway it's good looking and the desing is as clean as usual!

One of my alltime favourite demos. Remember downloading this with a 2400baud modem from a long distant BBS, cost me shitloads of money but once I got it I watched it over and over again. The code is thight as hell, and the graphics is very nice. A bit of a shame that they didn't manage to finish it for TP6 as planned.

Got me on the urge to match THE tunnel routine :)

Here the distinction between clever raycasting and cute voxel rendering becomes hard.

Awesome Code and original idea.

Fantastic demo, transitions between good effects like those are rarely seen. Just love how the start of the tunnel after the titlepic is synced to the music.

Oh boy, have I watched this many, many times... And it just stays totally delicious. This has been a big inspiration for me, both in code and design.

Atmospheric and soothing. The objects looks like cosmic underwater corals.

This is fuckin gem

I actually quite like that it's just various 2D deformation effects, pretty bold choice and overall well constructed around that constraint. The music is alright too.
