Cute snails...good job :)

Should really have stopped when the snails finished writing the message, and the ground texture is quite ugly. Nice idea, but poor execution :/

Agreed with Stijn, but I still found this quite cool and definitely undeserving of the last place.

indeed a bit too long with used sound
and very disturbishing prod :D
snail makes sense, optimize for size, not speed :D
added on the 2008-08-28 00:41:56 by EviL EviL
The sound is 100% fresh, it is just the synth which is still the same...
Apart from that there was no real size optimization applied (and the poly count is about 10 times higher than necessary) and the sound, the shaders and the camera movements were made in a hazzle.

Anyway, at first I wanted to submit my Buenzli 4k (which was unfinished) but that one would not work well with widescreen and needs further polishing anyway. Thus I made this fast invtro instead =)

sorry man, but this one was way too long. why do you just keep moving the camera about over ugly paths, long after everything's been shown already? it's not the audience need another 2 minutes to study every snail in detail..

So, this was supposed to be an a000h invit. I probably wasn't the only one wondering what the heck the snails keep writing with their slime(?). :)

C U AT 0a000h ( <- thats what they wrote... )

i like the growing of the snail in the beginning...shouldn´t have ranked that low,but was too long and the ground-texture is really ugly !

still i like it a lot...pulsating snails :)

Way to long, and looks like crap. Must have been annoying watching this on the bigscreen :)

I know what they wrote, but before the A was finished, it clearly said CUNT.
added on the 2008-08-28 13:07:40 by xeron xeron
Cunt is the new Hund.
added on the 2008-08-28 13:10:48 by Sir Sir
it read CUNT ant that is awesome :D
rulez added on the 2008-08-28 13:15:49 by okkie okkie
Sort of ironic that this hit last place. Certainly didn't deserve it.

Better camera movements and this would have been decent.

maybe if it lasted 1/3 of what it did it could actually be watchable for me

The snails actually looked quite nice but overall ugly, especially the blurry blue floor and the annoying music. What does that thing write? I can't read it..

cunt unloll :D
A bit long, and some aspects could have used more work, but this should have ranked higher.

-camera path

CUNT it is :)

But it still suffers from the very same thing as all T$ intros. First they are all cute and fun, but he just doesn't know when to stop and they quickly become annoying and boring.

30 seconds or gtfo!

The scene was OK, but there are some flaws which were already pointed out by the other commenteers.
Other than the screenshot reading CUNT UNLOLL, this intro had no redeeming qualities. Maybe if it were under a minute long instead of however long it went. I was begging for Escape at the party.
sucks added on the 2008-08-29 02:40:04 by phoenix phoenix
It was too long, and I wanted to press esc. This would have been cute and funny if it were half the length.

Moves at a snail's pace, but doesn't have the atmosphere to keep it interesting so thumbs down. Better direction would have helped.. or cutting a few minutes from the length.

+ writing 'CUNT' on the screen
- having the things leave a gross trail. I mean, ew! _That's why women have legs, so that they DON'T leave a trail_

Sucks _extremely_ much. Very embarrassing to watch during the compo. WHY do you need to keep going for minutes and minutes when you have zero interesting content and very annoying music?

neh, I didn't think it was that bad. Thumb up for the snail and I thought the sound was kinda atmospheric; if a little unvaried.

Oh, and what Got says too. Hehehe.

Terribly sorry, the music was really aggravating and the graphics were not very exciting.
