Splendid! I had a good laugh about the playful object-in-the-middle/scroll-random-monster-picture-in-from-the-sides/showoff-glitch-presentation of this piece. Also the tune was quite catchy and some pretty effective synchs there. This will stay in my private democollection for some time.

Really nice.

For me, this is the epitome of bad design. Ugly scans, mono colour scheme, stretched textures, scanlines that burn into my retinas and a desperate need for some anti-aliasing. I'm gonna have nightmares about this one.

Hahaha, best nfo and group name ever!

music = good however the vintage camera shader effect is poor, the scanlines should not be there, the effects are so-so and the production has no flow or narrative and so is seriously disjointed.

so, pig.

It got a bit repetitive after a while, but all in all it was enjoyable.

So fucked up design. I like it!

that soundtrack rocked hard on the bigscreen. I still disagree with the trance part of the track, but the rest is ace.

I'm also a bit annoyed at the mix of chaplin noise and scanlines which live in separate overlay dimensions according to me.. However there are ballerinas, alien monsters and television hosts in holy matrimony until death does them apart so who cares??

Great show on the bigscreen and well deserved 2nd place!

sountrack was very nice, but the visuals was somewhat "cold and edgy". Loved the greetings part :)

Cool! And great soundtrack.
Heia Fagernes kjøtt og data!

Cold, but far from dead. Rocked the bigscreen.

sweet! works in wine also. very nice.

Oh man, Wade hates it? TOTAL BONUS WIN!
bk237, Wade: the lack of antialiasing and sucky shaders might come from not using the GPU you know :)
It could also be caused by not writing a couple of desperately needed bilinear interpolated triangle fillers.

I like the music :D Apart from that, this demo was very grey. One of the best demos in the compo though ;) Oh, and lol at the greetings XD

the 1990's called - they want you to keep your software renderer...

Felt like it is a ms-dos demo(not always a bad thing) but still you had some nice effects!

what loaderror said :D

well not the part about it rocked at the bigscreen, I would not know :) but the rest.

Was looking good on the big screen.

if this rocked the bigscreen can someone slap me in the head for being wasted during the composhow. darn. software rendering rules anyway!
rulez added on the 2008-11-21 19:18:04 by rudi rudi
I like the way you linked old tv pics, monochrome display and software rendered gfx, that's cool, although I can't help feeling this was laid on top as an afterthought. The music and effects were impressive, but IMO don't complement the design much.

Plz feel free to keep your soft renderer, as rydi said "software rendering rules anyway!"

i enjoyed this
interesting style but the monsters were kinda 'wtf?'. ah, nnnice greetings part...

I like the style. For me it looked a bit like a Amiga/MSDOS production but still, that's the spirit I like in demos. Good music and atmosphere so next please :)
