Cool battle scene, I'm a sucker for stuff like that. The rest was awesome too!

Only it on the stream : it looked technically good but damn the battle scene looked cheap to me.

hammer! especially the terrain flying scene and the walking whatever thingy.

Cool and good-looking, but too long and dull in the long run. Surprised it ranked so high.
added on the 2008-03-24 18:03:06 by gloom gloom
A surprising and beatiful production, that appears to be very hungry for something for which I have not enough in my machinery. Will need to upgrade. Again. As gloom said, outstays its welcome a little bit, but still a definite thumb up.

i wonder if the tune by extrawelt has been exclusively produced for this demo.
no matter what, this is plain AWESOME. especially the canyon flight is pure ace.

and yeah.. i really love extrawelt :D

Jep, really nice one. I though like "man, there must be some killer effect if it's shown that late in the compo", and then you started flying through the canyons... Wow
rulez added on the 2008-03-24 19:25:18 by Hopper/SquoQuo Hopper/SquoQuo
I wish the whole demo was as superb as the landscape scene. Too many demo fillers. Did extrawelt produced the music for the demo or was it an already released tune?

overall impressive, but i like it much less than the last einklang.net demo. this one feels a bit incoherent, and this spaceship-in-canyon thing is kinda yesterday aesthetics (eventhough tomorrow technology perhaps, i dont know). also, i like the music from last time much better (even though this is still VERY good).

just in order to answer my own question and that of trace:
the tune used here is the most recent (feb08) extrawelt release on the label "Kompass Musik" (cat#: KOMPA010).
Track is called "Disttheme" (A-Side).

maybe, apart from ASD's demo, the only demo of the breakpoint bunch that got clearly better when viewed home non-stream, while others showed some technical flaws that live stream managed to hide.

Thumb up for the visuals during the landscape and the ballet-dancer objects. I also liked some of the transition on the lotus plant, but the whole lot seemed very disconnected. I tried to find some continuity in the story but failed.

While I didn't like the whole concept of the landscape scene ( although it looked great on the big screen) the end part with the strange alien was out of this world. Strange and mesmerising.

Well, this looks absolutely stunning! But would you PLEASE provide us with a final that has selectable LOWER resolutions... for poor fellas like me who dont own a 16 Mil. Cray 3???
Seriously... while my GF8600 gets all effects right, those resolutions of 1280 and above are a bit to heavy for 256 mbs of vram....

Ok, back to the demo: this is great stuff, just like Medum and Atomrave; the storyline was coherent enough for my taste and the music was pumping and energetic. Thumb up!

The canyon scene was impressive, but ugly as hell. The rest was boring and looked awful.

Pet will always have my respect for his Sanity work, but the Einklang style does nothing for me.

Some of it (battle scene) looked like straight out of some shitty 90ies house/trance video. The scary thing is that it does not look like a joke to me.

Enjoyable otherwise.

felt really out of space for a moment during the canyon scene... the music is very special! highly synthetic atmosphere... and i liked the sync with the game events and the sound of the turbines.
this demo feels right "up-to-date" for me, although it woldn't go nowhere without the music... and the flower mh, it's too much ribbon glamour for me... rosa nature2.0? the blob aliens: a joke or just nonsense sync trip creature?

is this lost future candy?

The landscape scene was sort of outta place, but pure bigscreen pron, so ok. And I loved the shooting effects being synced with the music.
Apart from that the demo had this very strange - and coherent - outta this world feel, that I really like. Baby blob monster was cute :+)
Should have ranked 3rd, imo.

Runs fast enough on my rig... I love the mood, the flower, the thingies popping up all over the screen an the lovely aliens. Too bad the Star Wars like canyon part doesn't fit. Although it owned big time on the bigscreen. Overall, I want more.

After reviewing the bp demos again in a quite minute I must say that this one for me is the best of them.
Yes, it's a bit incoherent and the last part (particle tunnel) is stretched to fill time and compensate for missing content.
But then again it's fresh and innovative, technically ace and has nice music (unlike the cocoon demo). Well done, pet!

It has the look of an MFX demo, but the pacing is bad. More cutting between scenes would have made this demo more enjoyable to watch. The canyon scene was awesome, though, so I will thumb up anyhow.

Just genius. It goes from abstract to first person space ship warfare synced to snare hits to something else completely. I love it.

One of the pieces which grabbed me back to demos! Great stuff and what a trippy music..

Great music, nice transitions, beautiful flowers, ... but what is with those weird dancing bug things?

Great direction, visualization, minimal music. Magnificent production.

fucking sick, music went so hard.. tbh i feel the battle scene was too long, but very nice camerawork and sync there.
