this one bugged hard on my 060. music was ok, effects pretty standard, i liked the font on the screenshot though.

I hated the design of this demo, but the 3d effects just fly. Really slick coding.

nice effects, ugly gfx, great music, and the right attitude

one of my favourites - pretty nice code - As far as I remember It was coded by Jamie/Skarla - but I may be wrong.

No, you are right! Jamie rocked us all down!

Very good demo, but Skarla and Essence should not have merged cos they had totally different styles.

bonzaj: yep, but skarla's crew joined essence at thoses times.

i know that this prod is an unfinished one (HD problems if i remember) but it rocks easely especially the powerfull 3D engine.

as anyone could believe ---> the rabbit and the moon objects are not precalculated in memory ---> they are real realtime calculated objects

The demo is nothing more than an object show but I always liked it. Code was very fast fast on 030 back then, probably using the french "SMC will fix all your problems" approach. :)

3D objects, colours and speed are excellent but in overall the whole thing is completely without any design. Music at the beginning sounds weak but it stays in your head for quite time. Porky.

Fast enough on 68030.
Music and code (nice 3D) are great. Groovy tune.

World's most dangerous group, hmm ok... the overall keyword is 'cute' I think :) Object shows don't always convince but what's there is good.

Ach fuck yeah. Loved this one.

Skarla quality!

Not hard to spot the influence here - these guys sure watched and listened Closer closely ;) Endearingly wannabe CNCD on the design & music front, still good looking and sounding enough for a thumb up.

(And obviously I meant "Inside" instead of "Closer" but you get the idea)

...ah, I think I get it."

You didn't.

Atari eko system by Extremly Kriminal Organisation from 1995 vs Amiga makaveli by Essence from 1996

Guess which is which:

Tried it again in my Amiga 68030 at 50mhz after watching a lot of demos. I wondered what are the limits of this machine. There are other demos with 160x128 with slower speed. This is pixel res with big full 3D and better speed. And there was the pixel res tunnel that finally got so smooth I would swear it was 1VBL. So,. pixel res chunky is possible on this earlier Amiga.
