It is really not bad, but has some ugly parts that spoil it...

+ because it ran on an old macbook
- for being sluggish in a resolution where i can count the individual pixels

awaiting a video version, some shaders were too modern for the gma950

At second it run correctly, and made me realise we are still not done with the huge pixels... That's too bad. So piggy.

Interesting effects, not the best visual looking effects but they were not boring.

This is a strange and very mixed demo. On one hand, it contains huge amounts of extremely cool and weird stuff (like the city and the exploding stuff and the scene with the head and the "light" things), but on the other the resolution is weirdly low, some of the parts (like the credits) just look like they come from 1998 and the cityscape thing, while stylish and conceptually pretty awesome, just reminds me of poor man's Rupture.

Dunno. I'll thumb it up anyway.

Thanks for a decent OS X prod again :) It ran nice and smooth on my two year old MBP. The only thing I wish for is it to use the native res.

Wow, that's entertainment! For me, best demo in 2009 so far. The inclusion of particles in heads photography is brillant. Don't remember seeing that before.
One of my favourite group. It's always a pleasure to watch one of their masterpiece. Mac OSX port deserves a big thumb.

During the first half I didnt really get into the demo much. But it builds up and becomes awsome. But the musician should have dropped the cheesy (and rather awfull) singing. It ruins the otherwise good track.

Some parts look great and others look half finished. :(

very good demo, but why limit the resolution?

Not bad. But what's up with the low resolution?

I like it a lot! It looks pretty impressive and many little details make up the typical Spöntz-Style. The music is a bit unusual but works for me. More of that, please!

yeeeee. nice one!

A few parts look too messy for my liking but most of the demo is very nice and interesting to watch. Quite enjoyed this one!

Hi all! Just came back to home and saw your comments regarding the low demo resolution, this was done in order to allow more machines to run it in a decent framerate.

But thinking again, as there will be a video version soon, we have increased the resolution to 1280x800, you can download the file again for the new settings, that also include two small bug fixings.

Thanks for the nice comments!

particularily particly. Nice show but try to invest in a resolution picker dialog. I can't believe I had to watch the demo in ...this.. blockhell!

Ok, we have just uploaded the revised windows version too. Adding a video settings menu is part of the plan, we are going to spend some time in the following days on a lot of things that deseve special attention.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

Shows work, definitely. Soundtrack rules and there are some nice synch points here and there, however:

- Some unnecessarily slow parts (slow as in performance): Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, Radeon HD4800 here.
- Some unnecesary black backgrounds
- Some unnecesary very low-res textures
- Generally low-resolution EXE, might work better when you add the resolution dialog.
- Too much "ruptureish" car part.

However, it was an overall nice experience, thus my thumb

The music was quite good except for the singing.

I got low framerates in the city part (9800gtx), the visuals were horrible and low res, and it generally reminded me of a mid-90s Amiga demo.

With the exception of the vocals, the music was quite good, but I've seen better demos from Spontz.

city part played fine on 8600 but i have quadcore maybe that helped. thumb up again for doing the high res version!
added on the 2009-07-27 13:08:49 by mop mop
Good stuff. Some nice fx in there, and I liked the flow + music. It went a bit ugly now and then (like at the greetings part), but not badly so.

Here is a demo with lots of energy and awesomeness inside, and a little bit of halitosis and cerumen! :)

Yeah! Thx for the high res too. City flyby looks really great now;)

Typical Spontz ! Some very good parts ( particles, city scape ) , some very ugly sides ( textuuuuuuures, photos ) ... But ace music ( and so-so singing ^^ )

But overall is good

Some ugly parts, but also some great stuff in it. Gets my thumb for sure.

Wow, I can't believe i missed one of the best prods of 2009. Sweet!

Despite a few awful things (the greetings-part and the vocals) this was quite fresh! Enjoyable!

Btw: I hope the stuttering in the music was just the video/YouTube's fault..?

This entertained me VERY well! Great one!

I really really enjoyed this. Effects in front of black screens were weird (at first I thought a background effect was missing because of lack of shaders here) but overally the presentation and music sync was great! I watched it again.

the youtube "version" totally roxx.. the realthing suffers a little of the lowres textures.. city scene + music are totally cool.. i even like the vocals!

Very good use of lens flares (especially with the falling cubes) and nice some scenes (the city, the car, the credits and last part).
Didn't like at all the photos and the greetings with ugly textures.
Imho greetings would have been better with the credits effect.

some cool scenes in here and good use of particles.

recorded this from my 2010 iMac. Ace demo!
This almost got my thumb, but then the greetings scene kicked in...
