Well coded, but very boring. Although the coloured lights were kinda neat.
Those coloured lights were cool :) and the music was appropriate for them. They also got to use that awesome Razor 1911 logo which I'mve seen before, right at the start. I'm pretty impressed with it on the whole. As usual for a demo, the 3D scene part was my least favourite :)

Hmm, dont want to sound to much like the 'cheese, but yeah the coloured particles were very nice! Shame about the 3d bit... Music fitted perfectly as well!

Sweet!

Nice job, from Razor. Could have been better, but overall very nice. I'm still not sure exactly if there was supposed to be a message or not... at the beginning there seemed to be, but it kind of digressed from there.

Music: Awesome. Very nice piano tune. The semi-noise cheering kind of sound in the background was a bit strange though.

Gfx: Nice and clean, but there were a few glitches with the meta-shapes (mainly the spheres). Otherwise, very nice visually.

Code: I dunno too much, but it seemed pretty smooth - quick loading, etc.

Design: The first part was good, up until the scene with the big red ball thingy. I kept expecting it to actually do something cool, but instead the camera just kept panning around. Sometimes, the pans are good for effect, but in this case, it was just boring. The cartoon shaded objects after that could have been a bit more interesting too, maybe animated instead of just static shapes - and their motion in and out could have used some acceleration, instead of just a *click* and it starts moving. The jerky motion didn't fit with the rest of the demo, being relatively smoothly flowing. And the credits lasted too long, IMHO. Overall, some things could have been a bit more dynamic, but I liked it a lot.

Kudos, Razor.

The 3d part should have been left out. Some effects are pretty nice, some graphics could use a little more work. The music totaly owns! :-)

Nothing really impressive, but a nice upbeat demo. A potpourri of (simple) effects & graphics.. the colored lights part reminds me a bit of an old Sonique plugin. The metacubes were kinda cool.

Anyway, it's certainly better than the stuff they released recently, Cheapdemo and Mairsik or whatever. It's just too bad that they didn't greet anyone who was actually AT the Coma3 party.

1. it's hilarious how the design makes no sense.
(why? 1st part typography/effects and that hilarious 3 icons screen, texts, slow/happy music with a corpse gfx)
2. music is some formulaic, flat, empty eurosomething
3. the abstract effects are rather pretty if not a bit naive
4. the industrial scene is pathetic for 2001 (when compared to de profundis or kasparov)
5. did i mention the soundtrack was going nowhere?

hi, i just though i would specify something about the greetings.

the whole demo was already completed before the party, and the timing could not be retouched (the song was too short hehe) so i was unable to add any groups present at coma in the greets (if you check in the data dir, you'll notice that *all* the greets are in 1 jpg file, so i didn't know how to change it -- the coder made it this way, not me ;]). sorry if anyone is upset about it. we'll make sure we can actually change the greets in our productions from now on, at any time.

i actually added a quick line in the nfo to greet everyone who attended coma3 (i'm sorry i can't remember which groups were there).

anyway, i had a great time at coma3! we'll be there next year too ;]

I liked the music, and the colored effects reminded me of shadebobs... miss them (:

Nothing huge here, a nice little demo.

(Zelkor: you got a major drubbing you didn't deserve, btw, don't take it personal. Glad you showed, wish I coulda been there. For the record, I assumed that I got a greet in there from Yes...)
Hmm. No, this is not making me cream my panties.

A lot of separate effects (almost as if they're taken from different demos) held together with light music for duct tape. The only coherence in the demo: during the greetings they use the background of a previous effect. The 3d scene should've been canned.

I've seen worse, but better as well.

I liked the cube thingie in the beginning =)

IMHO the design was inconsistent and the music sucked, *BUT* the graphics, they were something else. this demo contains a plethora of really nice pictures, thumbs up for the graphicians if nothing else.

MF got it.. some really interesting gfx and color-combinations, although everything doesnt fit together as well, like some heavy-metal-kind of picture absolutely doesnt go with overall futuristic design and cheesy musik.. i second knos about industrial scene - it was rather pathetic. well.. i dont know what to say.

This is a rather fun demo.. the music is cheesy but fun, some of the effects are ugly but fun and the lightballs are just fun. Fun fun fun!

good gfx, but the music didnt fitt. and code was better than ok.
yeah, what the others said. lame coherency, ugly 3d scene and just a boring demo with late 90s fx

3d scene sucks. Best thing about this demo is the logo at the start.
added on the 2004-12-13 02:07:09 by loaderror loaderror
Starts off with a great graffiti logo of razor. Really worth the sight. Then it seems to mix two average demos into one, with a heavy sugar coating of a soundtrack. Bad for your health, bad for your teeth. (Just one random note applicable to a lot of demos: if you do 3d scenes and the only thing animated is the camera, then you are doing something stale)
added on the 2005-10-02 09:07:44 by _-_-__ _-_-__
this could've been so cool...
there is cool music, cool gfx, some cool effects
if only the parts would fit together...
and if the 3d scene wasn't so bad

it's a waste of potential :-(

There are some VERY nice things in this prod.
I especially liked the variety of colors (and the music).
The twister is cool, too!
