Either something is broken or this demo has a LOT of white in it

I like it, but it's a bit boring. Eh well, thumb anyway. :)

some scenes are very empty / ugly and some really rules . looks like unfinished prod.... anyway good stuff
rulez added on the 2008-08-27 10:46:13 by Tigrou Tigrou
Some OK'ish visuals, and nice scenes - some butt ugly.
What is the RGB blob doing in this demo, twice!?

added on the 2008-08-27 10:47:32 by Puryx Puryx
a fair release with nice music and likeable design
rulez added on the 2008-08-27 10:50:15 by fishwave/scx fishwave/scx
a real mixed bag quality wise, but indeed theres some real nice stuff in there. and i'm a sucker for the "lets stick the fx ontop of clean and smooth gradients" simple look :)

Geh, this was ugly and uninteresting.

Some really ugly parts and seemed quite unfinished.

The old, dark & sinister paniq track they're using is simply out of place here. The visuals are so-so.
added on the 2008-08-27 11:29:38 by tomaes tomaes
this thumb is for the soundtrack. paniq, you rule!
the demo has nice scenes and it's moments, but just can't stand against the massiveness of the other demos in the compo. at another party it probably would've won.

I hard this music a lot of times. Don't think the visuals match the music at all. I guess that's the tricky part of using a well-known tune for a demo. Piggy for the effort.
added on the 2008-08-27 11:45:21 by mrdoob mrdoob
I agree with others that the music didn't fit. The direction was very poor too and made it feel thrown together.

Otherwise, I really liked what I saw. The colours and visual design worked for me and I love the shading style. I've seen better from Nah Kolor, but it gets a thumb from me.

nice "romanian spike ball"

clean design, nice music

I liked that spikey grey thing.

nice but not that great.
added on the 2008-08-27 13:39:13 by panic panic
Basically what people said. Some nice parts, some ugly parts, overall quite mediocre.

Cool to see several old groups return for nvscene though!

1fps slideshow after the first scene. ati x800 pro
added on the 2008-08-27 16:07:11 by psenough psenough
having seen the video: some of the objects were nice, like the spikeshieldthingie, but the overall design was very 98 called.
added on the 2008-08-27 16:14:01 by psenough psenough
ps: and i hate to point this out, but that x800 is very "2004 called"... :)
added on the 2008-08-27 16:17:11 by smash smash
This multicolored spike ball ruined my eyes.
One or two nice effects ruined by a poor direction and some ugly modelling.
And the music was one of these boring demotrack I bet are made from presets and already made drumloops.
after the 1st scenes it's getting really enjoyable with nice effects :)

the scene with enlarged-penised aliens worshipping the multicolored spikeball makes me grin :D
rulez added on the 2008-08-27 16:22:25 by Zest Zest
ps: i do agree with smash (what!?), you do know that demoboxes and nvscene compo machines are 8800+, so stop complaining about your x800... seriously :p
added on the 2008-08-27 16:24:54 by Zest Zest
What I like about this demo are some of the effects, very pretty. What I don't like is a total lack of a comfortable flow / plot.
added on the 2008-08-27 16:25:10 by Aasemoon Aasemoon
so petals are ugly in 3d as well. good to know :) rest of the effects were over the average. no thumbs.

Nothing exactly bad here, but nothing exactly great either

too empty, too unexciting... but not horrible either, except for the straight RGB colours on the spikething... piggie.

really good flow!
the "little" rgb object makes it for me.
good modelling, nice music!

flow, trax, design are great.
rgb object doesn't fit the scene.
but, it is still nice.

As you may see, this is a "0.9.3 PARTY" version, and it's not finished yet. It was made under a high time pressure and limited resources (see "nah-visage-party.nfo").

Some scenes may look not so good, because they are not finished yet. We will deliver final version with improvements.

You may blame me for a coder-colors, coder-cameras, coder-design and coder-ideas ;). I wanted this to be something more than just a 3d scene player. But, maybe I should just stick to a 3d engine improvements. Btw; this is my first PC demo for Nah-Kolor. I would like to thank friends from NAH and Paniq/FR^Neuro for a support!

Thanks for thumbing this up, it keeps us motivated! This was a warm up, and it gave me some valuable experiences. You may expect more and better NAH demos in the future :).

it's cool demo grat. O_o--b

For some reasons I like the scenes with the silly RGB spherical harmonic which dragons are observing it. And there are more cool stuff in it.
rulez added on the 2008-08-28 08:36:38 by Optimus Optimus
Music ruined this one, still a thumb for first pc production and cool design!

Bad mix of styles and an okayish objectshow. The rgb spikeball is really out of place.
added on the 2008-08-28 14:48:44 by zoom zoom
Pretty good...I couldn't figure out why some camera angles were chosen though. The RGB ball is cool in some places, but overused toward the end. Also, the aliens need some better modeling for sure.

A rather plain object show; some good, some not-so-good parts. Not bad but it left me rather cold.

Not good not bad. Except for the music which is really bad at times
added on the 2008-08-28 22:06:03 by Optima Optima
nice take on the soundtrack, and nice take on the models, even though the plastic-reference is more than obvious.
not so nice take on the not-fitting coder-colors that sprout out inbetween all the time. i miss nah-kolor. =)
added on the 2008-08-28 22:36:52 by dalezr dalezr

What do you mean by this? There is no Plastic reference in this demo, could you tell something more?

If you miss Nah-Kolor, just be patient, this was a fast production, we'll be back :)

Runs with 1 frame / 10 seconds on my old Pentium 4 with X1950 ??? But I watched the video and I very liked the demo, especially the soundtrack.

music doesn't really fit with the visuals, and I found the whole thing to be too dead.

ok'ish prod in good old style. misses something fresh and really exciting.

Quite an enjoyable production. There were some points where parts seemed like they should've been moving more, but it was still fun to watch.

i found this demo pretty bad, except in the middle (the screenshot depicts the best part). OTOH, the music is quite good.

demoish objects are fine, also the music =)
the beginning is (a bit) ugly, and also is (a bit) long/boring
average rating: is ok
added on the 2008-09-11 21:43:27 by pera pera
I like the contrasted white and primary colour scheme. Mainly that eerie white colour scheme suits my taste very well. I love the mystery in the music and I cant help but love those demoish objects floating in centre screen. I know this isnt technically difficult but it was still its wonderful. I really like the "300" ball.
But no thumb up as your shaders dont work on ati - I'll wait for the final. If you want some help getting it running on ATi, I'm sure magic knows where to find me.
rulez added on the 2008-09-11 22:15:30 by auld auld
ok ok I thumbed up - sigh.
added on the 2008-09-11 22:15:56 by auld auld
Quite an enjoyable demo. For some reason I liked the multicolor-blob, made for a nice contrast with those muted colours. Like auld2 said, the "spartan-ball" looked great and paniq's tune was good, too.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a final, though - some scenes looked unfinished indeed. But your engine shows a lot of promise...
rulez added on the 2008-09-11 23:29:25 by Stebo Stebo
Excellent (yet previously released) soundtrack from paniq. Some of the objects were cool-ish, I liked the shield-and-spear-sphere for instance. But the demo has no story, visual connection or sense... Doesn't go anywhere
