This must be the most emotional demo experience I have to date. Not the best demo but how it touch me on big screen is a first for me. my hair was standing!

the grapic is unbelivable! I guess this gets next years scene award best graphic!

I can't help but thumb this up, despite it being more of a slideshow than a demo. Amazing artwork!

Wonderful stuff gjoran! I really like the part when the dead woman turns into a fallen angel, amongst others. the gfx of the child are awesome!

Nice slideshow, good pictures. Looks much more like an artpack then a demo.

Great work! The atmosphere was very absorbing. I'm not sure if it was intended or not, but some of those facial expressions gave me chills.

Drawings are awesome, but I don't like it as a demo. Sorry :(

Very atmospheric

Didn't like it as a demo, sorry, but the artwork is very good!

Beautiful artwork, but I agree that it's more of an artpack than a demo. Still, watching this was quite an experience, and I'm happy we could hand out the "hidden gem" award to this demo. Any of the pictures could easily have won the gfx compo at TG09.

I love both the graphics and the music :)

Drawings are awesome, but it's not a good demo.

Nice gfx but it didn't touched me. And I thought at first that I would like it by reading of the comments.

Hey Proteque! You've been very productive for the last couple of months it seems - that's really cool. Maybe we should kick some life back into those Scarab coders ;)
That girls face in the screenshot is really really nice.
As demo this doesn't work well, as pointed out above - you probably know what I mean :)

Very emotional, and very good - in spite of the lack of effects.

The music production is coming along nicely as well, kudos :)

Great graphics and atmosphere here! Music fits very well too. Great demo(!) for me!

This isn't a demo in the "traditional" sense but who cares when it contains great artwork by Proteque.

A bit cheesy, but nice graphics.

Great artwork / atmosphere / music. A real piece of art

I liked it a bit better now I watch it again (I have to admit that I pressed escape in the middle the first time). Certainly not what I expected by the comments and graphics but it's rare to see such kind of demos and I want more.

Thanx a lot for all your kind comments :)

I added a grabbed version to capped.tv. kinda bad capture though. but I guess it works for those of you lacking windows :)

I was actually expecting a lot of "THIS IS BORING"-comments on this one. I am very happy that has not bean the outcome.

I added the gfx at artcity (bitfellas) aswell btw.

I was deeply impressed while watching this on the bigscreen. Simply stunning artwork!

ooooh... I am back to tell you something. When I watched this the first time I watched on the laptop and thought it was "ok".

Now I have watched it on my 42" TV and surroundsystem and I just need review my first comment. I can´t even imagine how this was on the bigscreen at TG. Your demo almost made a tear in my eye during the part where she goes to heaven. The synth work is amazing. _massive_ respect from me to you guys and you truly deserve a heart from me. <3

Great graphics, great music and great atmosphere! I will hand you a beer at solskogen!

Methinks this is a bit hyped. It did nothing for me. Graphics and music appear rough and unifinished.

Didn't quite touch me the way it did for others. Still, a thumb for effort and great art.

It has got atmosphere. But all looks a bit rough. The music is nice.

Beauty for the asses... I prefer a "german techno demo" over this one - granted, it is a concept which works (though not beeing an innovative one), but the result looks pretty static, dull and cheesy.
But the tune is worth a thumb alone... and kept me from hitting ESC

I didn't like the format at all. Alot of atmospheric graphics, but the all those effects (wobbling, particles ....) ruined alot of my enjoyment of this.

I rather see a more stylish slideshow, or something more exiting based on the graphics alone. Piggy stays

a bit short, but i liked the gfx!
