A ray tracing engine, with cool scenes, and cool generated textures. The music sounds really good. In bonus some philosophical texts... "A Place like... Heaven 7"

it's magic
added on the 2000-09-15 11:29:53 by u2 u2
Yeah, the raytracing engine is -at this moment- the best ever seen on an intro, BUT the rtcr is not everything. One of the things I like most is the whole ambient this one achieved to create. It's a killer, an amazing 64k size production. I agree with U2, it's magic.

Splendid presentation, a must see, why? read the previous comments, they cover about all there is to say. I like it! :P

low hat and thank you exceed.

just like u2 pointed out: the techniques used in this prod are superb in their own right, but they are also used very skillfully when creating the overall atmosphere. beautiful intro.

Heh,. Yabadabadou!!! Hevaaan sevaaan!!!
(Useless fact: My brother has written the music of Heaven7 (Oh,. and Hplus too :) in Minidisc!) =)

Normally, I said to myself:"I don't need to add a comment for these productions, everybody knows how these rockz!" but I shall do this, it's a shame not having comments for this baby!!!

Now, I am thinking it,. if this thing was a common raytracing demo, I wouldn't have had so big idea about this (But I would still watch it for technical reasons)
It's not only technically but designwise lovely too!!!

The 1st raytracing intro with design. Heh.. now after I have seen H7, I am bored to watch old raytracing demos (Except Nature Suxx which is still interesting technically.. and nice music and visuals too :)

A pure demo which uses both Tecnology&Pure Design(No something abstract wireframe trend :P) to make something unbeleivable to watch! Both technicall lovers&crazy design demolovers love this baby!!! Amazing! Just Amazing!!!

-I don't have it in autoexec.bat but as a shortcut in my desktop =) (Useless fact: And I use an old icon of a Tree for that,. couldn't find something better :P)
-Heh,. I am in love too :)
-Why do you have problems with the Poem?
-I beleive in Exceed. Their next demo Spot was nice too.. I am waiting for Heaven8

Just Questions... Dreams!

Heh,.. sorry! I don't know what happened!

(Though,. the next thing I was wondering after the big accident, was if I will get 2 glops for that (And now 3 =))

Ohh,. I was decorating my desktop with a screenshot from Heaven7 too XD
added on the 2001-02-20 14:47:30 by Optimus Optimus
What to say... everything in here has been said before.. To put it short: The most awesome combination of good code, stunning visuals and moody music i've ever seen.

If you're a real real scener you put this one into the "shell=" line of WIN.INI :)
added on the 2001-03-06 19:57:13 by kb_ kb_
wow! I always thought that nice raytracers were not good friends of design, but this demo proved me wrong! I love the music, just so relaxing, and the scene with the sea and the 'red' islands. it's one of those demos that everyone (as the comments before me prove) keep watching one time, and another, and another...
added on the 2001-03-19 02:16:31 by shash shash
What to say more?
"demo in 64 KB" currently still the best 64k intro on PC ("das produkt" didn't change this at all) brilliant +-30k chiptune sounding like a 3MB mp3file, fast raycasting, idea, impression... VAU!
added on the 2001-04-04 02:59:26 by crs crs
I hereby grant this intro the "Set's my dick on fire" award. I was lucky enough to see it at the party place.

Needless to say I creamed my panties. :)
added on the 2001-04-13 06:10:43 by sin sin
Whoops, I didn't comment on this intro yet? Shame on me :).

There are two types of people - those who think that FR08 is the best intro ever, and those who think that Heaven 7 is the best intro ever. FR08 had innovative code (compression, texture generation) and music, but Heaven 7 still reigns in effects (crazy raytracing) and design. Just plain flawless (but so was fr08.. oops, I'm going to get into another war, better shut up :).

Only a couple nitpicks. One, the improper/misspelled English in the "poetry" (Optimus, that's what's wrong with it, from an American point of view :). Also, I'm not too keen on the "shrieky" percussion (the high pitch sound). It just doesn't seem appropriate for this intro.

So, please enjoy Heaven 7, but some of you shouldn't go so far to love it as to compromise your, umm, manhood (see comment from SiN above :).

PS, I was let down not to see an Exceed release at MS01, but I'll look forward to Assembly again.
added on the 2001-04-30 19:17:10 by phoenix phoenix
Ughf, i got known the chiptune wasn't about 30 but about 80 kb but anyway i keep tending it sounds lika 3MB mp3 :)
and unlike phoenix, i think it suits the intro as well.
and.. yes, there were some grammar mistakes there (hoping there are not any by now yet) that degraded the intro a bit which is a big pitty,

i wonder when (or if any) something would beat this intro.
added on the 2001-05-01 06:39:00 by crs crs
THE BEST INTRO IN THE WORLD (in my opinion) :P
added on the 2001-05-17 22:17:03 by firebite firebite
beautiful first effect with lights
i dislike the political message of this prod
i love the music, it's a very good music i think
a must see
MUST SEE ... enough said ...
AWESOME from the first frame to the last,
realtime raytracing at it's full glory and in 64k
don't miss this one ...

added on the 2001-06-05 00:12:54 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
whoa! the music is pretty similar to lone wolf's "time's up" indeed, especially in the beginning... anyways, heaven7 is still the best intro of 2000.

And what can the author of the soundtrack say? I've experienced few times that you compose a melody similar to another one, previously created, but this should and should not be this case.
So - what the exceed musician say himself?
added on the 2001-06-06 03:44:06 by crs crs
the author of the soundtrack spoke already (d-lee) - atleast if i didn't totally get it wrong :)
added on the 2001-06-06 13:06:35 by ryg ryg
d-lee didn't made the music, and i think one pattern is not the end of the world.
the melody part (which is awsome) has nothing to do with time.xm, so whattahell?

even jogeir ripped a lot, and noone even cared about it...but i can name lot of others, even my favourite demo hahaha...
rulez added on the 2001-06-06 16:19:46 by teo teo
tracked music tends to use ripped samples (unless no one noticed yet)
still.. a nice intro.
rulez added on the 2001-06-08 04:55:28 by psenough psenough
Have to vote 4 this one too!!! Best thing I ever downloaded from the time I started to download demoscene productions! Code, some nice Music and pure Design (Without having to use "wanabbe art" trends,. but pure stuff with cool code!!!)

Awesome! From that time, I have told to myself "PC scene doesn't suck finally as much as I thought before.."

rulez added on the 2001-06-09 08:28:13 by Optimus Optimus
well... the prod is nice.. still i dont like when people rips 'anything' ... so lets go and hang the musician =)

Its so annoying he cannot stand for what he did either... no guts at all ;p

quite perfect and amiga-stylish.

Remember it's a 64k intro!
It's one of the best intros because it got cool music and poetry. Watch it! Only true demosceners understand why its so good!!

the code, textures, music, scenes are great

the bump sucks (first raytraced such though, maybe, sowhat, looks like it too) and sgeneboetry is always a bad thing. this is drain with better code. does one plus make the worlds fucking best intro?!?

Ripped music aside (this coming from a musician), it's bloody great! runs as smooth as a babie's ass and the blurred moments look amazing.

Yes, there's a lot of of tricks and hacks concerning the rayrtacing, but see if I care =)

Kitch, art...whatever...who the hell can define that. This is Heaven Seven and nothing else. The visuals are very nice, don`t like the tune so much though. But a very good software "accelerated" intro.

It's got average music, average "design", crap sgenepoetry (which can atleast be disabled) and some better-than-average scenes. (and its very nice that it happens to work nicely on my 200mhz piece of junk) but somehow it just doesn't have anything which would make me want to watch it over and over again... still its _way_ better than most other real-time raytracing intros around.

those raytracing based intros have something uncommon that make them look different..

WTF?? There is 12 different tones / octave to play and it's like a billion songs previous made. For every song made it's like thousand using the same chords / tone patterns. As soon as anyone hears anything sounding like anything else it's a witchhunt about ripping and bla bla bla.... It's virtually impossible to make music that doesn't sound like anything else unless you've actually heard all the music in the world!

Show this to someone who is 17 years old now..
- Yes, it is 64K in size (that's amazing in itself).
- No, it doesn't DL anything from the internet.
Great stuff, really nice production, love the music.

oh well... the graphics are truly outstanding, and the soundtrack is somewhat monumental. the styling seems to drive the engine to the maximum effect.

It's just pretty. And with the final version, there are no more spelling errors to distract from the mood... wish Exceed would make some more

Alright, I don't think I need to go into how cool this prod is, it's been said over and over. However, here's something cool I found out...

I'm running KDE with WindowMaker as my window manager (Linux, for any who are not familiar). And I found that if you run Heaven Seven under Wine, then the mini-icon that WindowMaker creates for it is the actual demo! So I just run it looped with no sound and hide the window so it's just running 24/7 at the bottom of my screen in a little 40x40 pixel window ;-) Pretty cool stuff.

FR-08 was better I thought. Technically. Overall, this intro dominates fr-08 like a pimp and his bitch :)

Pretty amazing technically, excellent design, excellent soundtrack, and it looks just lovely. And as time passes, cpus get faster and I can keep turning the resolution up :)

When it was released, this was perhaps the best intro ever, now I think there have been better (project genesis, poem to a horse come to mind). But it still stays in my folder for favourite demos, and will do for a long time. I just hope exceed will make a follow up, with better sound engine, perhaps improve the raytracer as well, and either get rid of the poetry (which seems to rule and suck at the same time somehow) or at least put something good in.

Still, thankyou exceed for this classic :)

Stunning example of a software-rendered demo, which still looks unbelievably good over three years later. While the text could've used some cleaning up (it has potential, but the word choices make some of the passages sound awkward and slightly comical), all of the scenes have nice variation, and the opening image of the woman walking down the white light corridor makes a very powerful statement, and is the one image that really sticks with you after the demo is over. Software-driven in 64k... I love these productions.

Voting a second time just to note that this intro withstands the test of time quite nicely... I *still* love the music. I *still* love the parts and the scenes and the way they're rendered. And I *still* love the upscrolling 'frombirthtodeath' drawing. How they crammed it into 64k is *still* a mystery. Two thumbs up, way up!

PS:To those who don't like the poetry: you can switch the text off in the final version of the intro.

I think the reason Heaven Seven is so popular is because it shows great programming skills and has a very good design, so that basically everyone gets something out of it. Contrary to my first impression, even the lyrics make a lot of sense. The way I understand them, they refer to some essential questions, humans may ask about heaven, for which there are no answers. There is also a topic with some interesting replies about Heaven Seven: http://www.pouet.net/topic.php?which=755.
In my opinion this is the single best demo of all demos I know. Some recent intros may appear more technically stunning, but design- and contentwise these do not come close to Heaven Seven.

It is very pretty, good music, good rendering and 3d, much more pleasant to look at than much current demo. And the fact that it have there a message to shock little but why a demo could not have a militant step, it's not difficult to find artists who express their political or philosophical choice !

Excellent visuals, music and design. It is the lyrics, the walking child and the 2D-art which makes this the best of the best.
About the music ripping: There is only a limited number of combinations of harmony, melody and rhythm. Since I could not find the MP3s this is supposed to be ripped from, I am quite sure it is not.

rulez added on the 2004-04-18 22:42:15 by _dylan_ _dylan_
The lyrics are about the idea of afterlife. That idea is not limited to christianity at all. The intro starts with someone being born, then shows images in the background of children, then grown-ups, then old people. The ocean as the last scene is a nice symbol for the "final" destination.
There are only a few other productions with such well thought up lyrics and content.

OK, here is the full story. I wanted to know if you write the German word "Daumen" in English as "thumb" or "thump". I just can't remember, I am that bad in orthography, especially English. So i checked at wikipedia, and of course it's a 'b', but when i saw the image of the thumb, i knew i have to add that on pouet. but to what production? I only need one more comment to get my first CDC, so i really had to add one positive comment to some production. which one?

let's check the top ten. first one: ours. second one: heaven seven. There is no discussion that this intro deserves a thumb up, and that everyone who would ever thumb this down does not deserve a pouet account.

I don't know, I've never really found this that amazing. The raytracing is cool from a technical point of view but in order to show it off a lot of rather generic scenes are used (reflectoballs!) which isn't that interesting to look at.

The routines are pretty average for 2000, nevertheless they're nicely optimized for a 64k.

The (artificial) hype however is not for the design or for the code, rather for the text (message), which is an attempt to surprise the unaware viewer with difficult philosophical/spiritual questions and promote a stoic-pessimistic approach.
(The average scener in his teens or twenties probably isn't prepared for dealing with these questions of religion and is probably caught completely off-guard.)

For a y2k production, it definately set standards along with fr-08. It doesn't quite make it up there, but that's mainly due to the fact that a chiptune was used instead of a synth. Yeah well - I'm an audio-oriented guy. Does desserve a big thumb up none the less!

If not for 'no text' this would have been a piggy, maybe even a sucks. The scene poetry made me cringe then, and it makes me cringe now. But... the rest of the intro is such an achievement.

If you want to enjoy this prod at a higher resolution than the available ones, set a BP at 00401203 (after UPX unpacking), then change the EAX (width) and EDX (height) registers. In order to avoid glitches, try to stick to multiples of the original resolutions.

This one is very polished and was for its time pretty advanced and fast. Quite cheesy texts though. Still getting a goose skin when I see the human form.

Not bad, but it always bored the living hell out of me.
Scene poetry is cheesy as fuck, but overall this is pretty decent

Fabulous Ray tracing. Legendary philosophical message.

it's about time to thumb this up. feels very retro these days, but I was very impressed in the past and I still like it.

I wasn't active on that time when this intro was released. Later I got back into scene again and I went through lots of demos and intros from those times which I "lost". If I think about the time when this intro was released, I understand the hype and love towards it, but to be honest, I personally don't experience special feelings when I watch this intro. It's ok, the music is nice, but that's it. Good, but not the most best intro ever :)

is it possible to run this without mmx? can somebody make a patch to use non-mmx instructions (but require a faster cpu obviously)

it's actually pretty annoying that the linked youtube video is from the hires version, and not the original.

Nice 64k demos, for sure !
But... I read that you need a GUS to hear the sound and I understand that ;-)
But... what about the technical specs ? Which PC can run this demo ? It seems, I can't run it with my retroPC if I don't run with the good video card under MSDOS 6.22. It's ok with an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro AGP... Ok with a Matrox Mystique 220 PCI and I receive a "VESA error" message with a S3 Virge DX.
So... Not really a problem but if someone know what is the problem with the S3 Virge DX (Not enough recent for this demo ?)...
Another test with the MisterFPGA and the AO486 core is ok ;-)
Thank you !

ngl, I clicked the intro on the front page just to see what gargaj has to say about it 23 years after its release xD

turns out HuggyOne76 is not gargaj. Read your comment anyways :)
