Warning: this 20meg zip contains 1,296 files - if you are lazy and use windows' built in extractor it's gonna take a while ;)

The demo itself doesn't run on Windows 7, there is an invisible dialog box and hitting return brings me back to the desktop. The data directory contains a noisy MP3 featuring Stephen Hawkings, and a video directory with thousands of JPEGs :o

It crashed at the end, but it was nice till then. Must watch it again later.

What actually qualifies this as a "demo" ?
It's ugly, it's pointless and it's technically bogus.
No thanks ...

ok can someone put up a vid

because i don't think it's supposed to look like THAT

umm yeah, the compo version does not end cleanly, the demo itself ends after the credits are shown and then it crashes. maybe we'll do a fix sometime later.

The window closed after the credits but the music kept playing for a few more seconds.

random pt scener, yeah that's the behaviour to be expected.

If this isn't a real demo, then real demos are probably horrible shit, and I hope I never see one.

I was actually impressed. There was some strong and very menacing imagery in this one.

On the right end of the spectrum of noise.
rulez added on the 2009-05-25 11:19:38 by Preacher Preacher
i liked it.

i think it's funny that all the people who complain that it's not a real demo are atari sceners. it's ok if you don't like it, but please allow democoders to decide for themselves what they consider a demo and what not. not all demos need to be lit 3d cubes, tunnels and chipmusic, you know.

hmmm, as soon as our coder comes back from his 'trip' we can maybe try to get some fixes done...

Yeah, in numbers: 2.
But i do get the message: Stupid Atari people don't even recognize a demo when they see one ...

replace "atari" with "amiga" and "it's" with "Suretrip II is" and it could've been my comment... except i restrained myself ;)

having said that, i also think this is not much of a real demo in the traditional definition. i do like it for what it is, though- an experimental presentation that scratches an itch called style.

Even though this should be art(?), or is trying to send a political message, it's still boring and ugly. Sorry.

actually I expected this to be alot worse ;)
quite nice imagery, didn't like the font though.
and nice 2d-fx, reminded me about satori.
so: pigface.

Noise is all ways good but I'm not very fond of the theme.

"demo.exe hat ein problem festgestellt und muss beendet werden."

i bet that's my calculators way of having a guru meditation, which kind of concludes in me wanting a video version of the thing that so nicely taunted me in advance after having a listen at what was hiding in the data-folder.

paranoid, you should know better than thinking i think atari sceners are stupid. why the hell would i organise what's for big part an atari party if i didn't like atari sceners? i think i should've used the word 'disappointed' instead of 'funny'.
added on the 2009-05-27 12:04:37 by skrebbel skrebbel
Maybe the point is what is a demo, whats not ?
I think demos evolved and at the same time have more variety these days. They have absolutly grown up from being a nice gfx/fx show (which i still like much) to a method of expression.
But then again access to them is harder + there also is crap around :-)
Whats a demo, whats not ? I can't tell. Whats crap whats not ? I judge it with my point of view.
added on the 2009-05-27 12:51:24 by Zweckform Zweckform
Skrebbel: I don't mind the word "funny" at all. Maybe i shouldn't have used the word "stupid" either since i certainly didn't assume you considered all Atari people stupid.

But what i was surprised about is that you pointed out that it was a Atari-sceners who did not consider this a demo even though it was only 2 of them - As if the fact "Atari scener" was automatically related to "not being capable of judging what is a demo".
It's merely Lotek's and my opinion and it has really nothing to do with the Atari scene.
And that's what i wanted to point out.
