a little boring at the beggining, but it gets a lot better then the cocoon trademark rotating things apear.

Great stuff, as usual from Cocoon, even if it was made in a hurry. Morphing heads would have been nice.

if i close my eyes i still see everything in the caca-palette :PP

nice stuff tho, especially the stuff happening during/after the topright-scene from the screenshot..

The beginning is way too boring. Flying around sub-par ruin models simply just doesn't cut it. And then there's the feeling of emptiness I just can't ger rid of when watching. Maybe it's something related to the Uncanny Valley - your models try to be realistic but then nothing happens except from a camera that moves without any real goal.

Then again, Willbe's musical mastery and the second part where it all gains speed and goes steampunk (random quote when a colleague entered my room while I was watching: "Of course. In the future EVERYONE uses old film." :) are very likeable. Just.. how about some more concept work next time?
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 19:14:03 by kb_ kb_
Not really my cup of tea.. Next time use other palette than the 'brown' 3d scenes..
Looks like a nice game though if it was playable ;-) Thumb anyway..

Thumb up for the part after and including the pyramid shaped objects.

The models seem to be a bit low-poly sometimes and the beefed-up quake colour scheme(tm) and the seemingly disjoined speech part in the middle could be done away with.

After the first scene (ruins) I tought I'd thumb this down. Fortunately the rest is great and I really liked the music. :)
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 20:10:44 by masterm masterm
Best modelling as always, very good music too and timing of scenes. It gets better from the middle onwards.

Minor issues apart, this is entertaining enough, although not the best in the compo.
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 20:17:58 by Navis Navis
yep, again so much detail and quality in every area, smooth as hell, i love your choice of subject matter aswell and the art and music captures that mood perfectly and creates a great atmosphere :)
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 20:20:38 by keito keito
Ok demo, however some of the ruin scenes almost ruins (haha hoho hehe) the demo in the beginning. It gets better as it gets a bit more angry towards the end :)

A thumb up - but I think you've done far better and can do far better!
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 20:25:52 by Puryx Puryx
Most of the time it looks like a bad amiga demo...
Modelling is partly very good, on the other hand sometimes really sub-standard. Music is good.
added on the 2008-07-02 20:38:53 by blala blala
Borrowing what I wrote on the compo BBS topic: This is very groovy, has excellent music and a really nice flow and a weird and interesting concept, not to mention an unified theme, behind it. Also, it reminds me a lot of some demos (Significant Deformation Near the Cranium, as well as old French flybys), which brings back memories.

The second part really makes the demo. Magical Nazca Indian technology ftw!

rulez added on the 2008-07-02 21:21:55 by psenough psenough
as has been mentioned several times, the first few scenes do more harm than good, but the second half saves it. does seem rushed in a few places though - guess you didn't have enough time for your trademark polish :). no matter, it definitely gets a rulez.
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 21:23:38 by ryg ryg
first moments were a bit dull and unpleasant to watch (blurry textures..).
becomes better (really good) as time passes by.

But it was nice motion blur. :) The beginning was meh, but the rest was nice.

This is a nicely done production, with some good 3d scenes in it, and some new features in the engine I believe. But still it feels a little too much like an engine preview I think.

Of the usual high quality... makes for a fine trilogy with "Clouds" and "Shad3"!
rulez added on the 2008-07-02 23:16:47 by Stebo Stebo
I do like this very much, very clever too. I like the fact it starts off old tech then works to new tech, (also evident in modelling and textures and stuff.) Kinda like the Incas were supposed to have been a technologically advanced race, but never showed it on the outside, (sounds good, mind.) ;)
imho i think this is one winner!

There's still some boring parts to watch (especially the intro), but the overall demo is really entertaining! (A lot more than Shad3 imo)

This is so cooool! As with most Cocoon demos, the hard work really shows and the result is outstanding!
rulez added on the 2008-07-03 00:37:58 by Wade Wade
Some very nice scenes, I'll agree with some people it's a bit boring at the beginning but the fact the soundtrack is well synchronized helps to stay in front of the screen.

An overall nice demo, not my cup of tea but definitly deserves its thumb up!
it will not run for me, i get an eternal loading screen :O
added on the 2008-07-03 01:33:55 by bfx bfx

bk237: same here. I was hoping to get a few pointers from the Cocoon-squad to help me get it running.

But I guess they must want a thumb-down for poor "customer service" :)))))

Oh guys, when you have static models that look this good, why not throw in some effects as well?! We know you can do it! :) The music was great (real drive behind it, the drums I suspect) but it had a very "dry" sound which I didn't like that much. The models and textures as great as always but I didn't really get any "wow" from the visuals themselves. I did enjoy the tiny bit if kinetic typography that was in there as well. :) A really solid prod, but just too dull for my taste (effects damnit! effects!! :) -- but a thumbs up for sure!
rulez added on the 2008-07-03 08:40:15 by gloom gloom
I digged the coherent design as well as the music - the "dry" sound Gloom was referring to struck me as refreshing. The speech and translation bit was a nice idea as well. The scenes near the end did look good to me, for a flyby. Too bad many others didn't.

All in all this was vastly better than Shad 3, but yeah, throw in some effects already :)

The sync'd effects and music are nice, although as many people have already said the beginning was a bit boring.. All in all I found it really entertaining.
rulez added on the 2008-07-03 10:50:27 by dv$ dv$
btw i disagree on the boring beginning issue; first off i think it works well with the buildup and second it's slightly like a ride through the ages - we start with what's basically "moai 2" and then gradually build up to something more smashing and modern :)
added on the 2008-07-03 11:00:09 by skrebbel skrebbel
skrebbel : thanks for noticing. that was the idea. In fact the whole demo with techno style would have ruined the progression of the demo

Quite nice. Cocoon demos may not be totally my flavour, but I can certainly appreciate the direction and skill, and Willbe always does fantastic soundtracks.

This is by far my favorite of the compo. It got me into it with some things that the others were lacking for me -- Some chosen theme, dared to have some clear meaning, some flashes of style that worked, and the end part got me into the rhythm. Actually, the end part is what did it. The build up worked for me and it took me by surprise.

Also, like proteque, this is the first cocoon demo that I recall liking.
rulez added on the 2008-07-03 17:41:30 by bigcheese bigcheese
horrible camera animation and angles in the first part.
but when those mechanical things started to appear...

Reminds me a bit of the above.

Aztec (or was it inka or maya?) techno. Not sure if I connect breakbeats to this look in any way, but everything looks and sounds really good so who cares. Ace motionblur!
rulez added on the 2008-07-03 23:03:46 by loaderror loaderror
what year is this? 2008? from the very idea to the flyby realisation, this has 1998 written all over it. i'm sorry to sound harsh (and i still respect the effort made), but there are a lot of excellent examples (also in this very competition) that demos have far evolved from this kind of productions in the last ten years.

nytrik, well that's basically it.. I may be shallow, but the title brought expectations, and they weren't fulfilled. So I felt let down, in a way. You'll probably say I'm being unreasonable.. It's just.. ruins with western type of architectures in a demo called nazca.. That's ugly, no matter how well made the ruins are "out of context"

Likewise with the mishmash of random cliparts that come from whole different civilizations. That kind of kills the vibe in a big way.

the start was a bit too "cocoonish" with your regular static 3d scenes with "unrelated" (in terms of sync and dynamics) 2d-overlays. But towards the end things got really good looking, and the last tunnel-part simply rocked! more of that please

Don't really like the first part with the ruins : the scenes look empty. But the part following the lyrics is pretty cunning.

The white ribbons escaping the glowing ball should have been synched with the buzzing tone at 1"39. They go ~2' too early :p

Call me crazy, but I like a good 3D flyby every now and then. I think that it was used judiciously in the prod to introduce the theme. The music was really groovy and fit the theme perfectly (the best in the compo IMO). Definitely my favority Cocoon stuff to date!

The scenes in the beginning look more empty than impressive, but towards the end the quality is great, although I miss the character animation from shad 3. Unfortunately the demo reminds too much of shad 3 without reaching its heights, so it feels like a bit of a disappointment, despite being really good

ltk_tscc, watch the bp08-demos again, kthx.

Flybye, but with great 3d detail and beautiful textures, enjoyed it especially in a friend with a big screen and good 3d card. Has some nice sync/surprises especially at the end.

Has all the Cocoon trademarks (faces staring out of the stone, rotating tunnels), but that doesn't mean it's not a hell of a show at the same time. Clever typography, too (Willbe?). Solid work, and I did fancy this more than most of the late Cocoon demos.

Not really my cup of tea.. Next time use other palette than the 'brown' 3d scenes..
Looks like a nice game though if it was playable ;-) Thumb anyway..

yup... anyway its a great demo

ltk_tscc, there are people on pouet who are much better at trolling, maybe you can learn from them.

cp: I'm not trolling... just accept that masagin did not kick me in any way... and there's no reason for attacking me here.

i accept personal opinions about prods. but you have to accept that you will be attacked for talking nonsense ("itz all nuthin' but 3d-flybyz, lolz!!11") that is obviously wrong and very troll'ish.
added on the 2008-07-10 11:13:26 by cp_ cp_
"itz all nuthin' but 3d-flybyz," : read the comments above. It seems that when you have hand made 3d it's a flyby whatever you might do

the term "flyby" is probably the most stupid categorisation the demoscene ever came up with. It's not only disrespectful in every possible way towards ANY modeller out there, but it simply misses the point completely. I prefer a good "flyby" to any other type of sub-par demo. And that's what it's all about, isn't it? It's about the overall quality IMO. And Nazca is a great DEMO in my book. Period.

Respect to everyone involved.

very groovy however here are some remarks for what they're worth
1) i would love to run a cocoon demo on my computer when it is released once in my life, not four years after :p
2) at first, i felt disappointed because no matter the quality of the modeling, i just had this "oh, head faces coming out of walls or metal" deja vu feeling
3) white flashes overuse, especially when there is the spinning cube if i remember correctly
4) i felt like the french audio sample was unrelated to anything (or there is something i didn't get)

nytrik > btw, weren't you already working on this "spinning cylindric thingy" at bp06 ?

anyway, in the end a really great demo, congratulations
Almost with no blood this time! bravo, Cocoon! :)

Sometimes u can't imagine the work done.
I was around sure that Nytrik was an infographist in real life, i heard i was wrong , anyway this direction is equal to video games introduction, watch it.

ra : as a former st/falcon and amiga graphist, your comments goes directly to my heart :)
As far as my real activity is concerned, i always wanted to work in the video game industry but never found a real opportunity, therefore, I continued my way in the financial sector. Regards

Well, I suppose it's ok. The music was definately the best bit for me.
I think the demo starts a bit on the weak side, but once you walk through those big doors, it gets better and better.
Still, nothing REALLY amazing, but certainly a decent production.
wow. a cocoon demo I enjoyed :) stay on this track and don´t make demos that looks like games. Big step up :)

Let's say it's Guille' style ;). You can't say this prod suck. It's technicaly awesome with neat gfx and 3D but it lacks a bit of "spice", direction and design. I particularly liked the music from Willbe and the part about computer graphics :p
