It tells me my videocard is not good enough, no shader 3 support. It is a brand new radeon 4870 ffs! :) But still everything looks like it does on the screenshots. I like it but it feels very 4Kish imo.
Not smooth + boring

Pretty, kinda original and smooth, but still having too much same stuff makes it boring :\

The dutch called, they want their colour scheme back.

Simple raytracing of isosurface is not a bad idea for 4Kb but not for 5Mb.

will have been nice as a 4k...

Complained about not having support for shader model 3.0, altough Radeon X1950 should have. What I saw didn't seem to work correctly either.

Nice enough for a small production.

I was picking up a Polka Bros vibe, but there was just too much synchronisation and it ended up looking jerky.

Personally, I think it would have worked better to synchronise some graphic overlays or background rather than the main effects.

Nice colour scheme and great music, but didn't work for me as a demo on this occasion.

i wanted to like it, but just couldnt, felt very cold and sparse.

uhm... feels a bit empty.

Love the soundtrack!
Visuals go great with the sound. Sync if you will.

A nice presentation of these recent 3d plasmoid things with the shaders. But how are they done? I still can't figure out. I have a little idea about how shaders works but do you have to setup a lot of parallel quads to have a X,Y,Z buffer where you change the color? How many polygons you need to have upon them shaders to do such thing?

nice prod!
rulez added on the 2008-11-17 17:24:11 by mad mad
optimus: raymarching. Set up a single fullscreen quad, foreach pixel step inwards while evaluating an implicit function until you eventually pass some threshold value (ie hit the object).

Production is very 4k'ish, too much for a demo. Somehow liked the "meshing" part though. Bogus error about ps3 on my ps4 card.

hmmm,sth went wrong with this prod!
but no matter how hard i think about it i cant say what it is!
the code/background/lighting/shadowing is total ace,so that cant be it! but what disturbs me here? damnit!
i do like it,so heres some thumb,eventho it still does anything wrong!

after having read the others comments,i conclude the coder in me is aching because of the size...if you do a demo instead of 4k with this effect it shouldn´t have got that empty! on the other hand i wouldn´t know what extras to put in myself! strange demo,guys! very strange...this will take me a week or so to recover/not trying anymore to see where it bugs!
headaches thanx to u! ;) haha
maybe its just
traction and NO! line-vectors...wtf?
too repetitive for me. i kinda liked the clean design but the shaded border made it feel claustrophobic and ruined it. needed either more content/variation or a smaller filesize
added on the 2008-11-18 14:14:13 by evilpaul evilpaul
I liked some parts.. But the effects were kinda on repeat with different colours.
added on the 2008-11-18 14:20:00 by Zeila Zeila
I kind of somewhat liked it somwhat.... but for me it is too much introisj. a demo must provide me with some neat gfx and/or 3d to work for me.

a bit too monotonous

Nice effect but lacks variation.

Variations on a theme.. but too many of them for a demo. For a 4k it would really rule.

The fact that I have shader model 4.1 two times over makes your stupid dialog box even more infuriating. (ATI woes)
added on the 2008-11-21 23:58:03 by Claw Claw
Just read Barrio Jigs comment and he's right, that dialog box doesn't know shit.

I like this, psonice was right about variations on a theme but I thought it was the perfect length and the sync with the minimalist tune was good.

The PS3.0 dialog message is made based on the data I got from here
unfortunately it seems not to be valid. I won't be using that dialog again.. :-)

Cool Effects ;)

PS 3 problem here as well (my card does have PS 3). Sorry, but this is not my cup of tea. not bad, but also not the best.
cool fx and a snappy soundtrack that fits the visuals.

it wish it had some sort of a curve though. it throws in all the fun in the first screen.
