Flashy visuals.

Visuals/design is a total mess and all those flares flashing constantly on the screen were quite annoying really. Music was quite good so piggy it is.

It looked like it was trying to be an ASD demo, but was way too cluttered and messy with polygons folding and flying everywhere.

Good music though.

Music was fascinating but didn't care for the rest that much, too messy, not too bad though..

Didn't work for me...piggy

Design is non-existent and visuals aren't that great either. Has a few parts I like (like the greetings part) but other than that it's rather boring. Also runs quite slow here. Weak pigface.

Love the flares!

Solid from Adapt again.

Very messy. Nice music though.

I don't think this is the right direction

Seems like the design have been put in a mixmaster.

ok. a bit too flashy

very very weird!! XD

Yep, the messiness and questionable design. Piggie.

i appreciate the skills but this is weak

Best Adapt demo so far, for me. Outstanding visuals, nice music, loads of great effects, but really weird design.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 02:42:58 by Bobic Bobic
Great looking scenes slapped together into a way too incoherent presentation. Great soundtrack though.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 03:08:40 by teel teel
unlike masterm, the only thing i really liked was the lens/distortion effects.

Whenever there's a new Adapt demo I always try to make myself like it, but never seem to be able to. :-(

Overcomplicated at times. Overall OK.

The usual adapt mess, now with mass effect/star trek lens flares. Music's pretty good again.
added on the 2009-08-09 12:57:33 by tomaes tomaes
Adapt demos are better and better as time passes. I like colours and great music. Keep it up !

Aouch, "too much" kills the demo !

this was the biggest mess i've ever seen, but i'm pretty sure it was intended so it's ok
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 16:52:09 by Gargaj Gargaj
I don't really get the hostility here. This was way more coherent and stylish than all the ASD rip-off crap in the compo. Some of the visuals here were even fresh and cool (haven't seen that sweet flares in a long while).

Balance is better but this is really good!

Again improvement over the last one.
Its funny how some people say it is too ASD-alike...
In the 90' you saw a lot of Orange/Melon-style in demos that gave groups a base to build their own style.
I think nowadays ASD is the new "base-style".
Noby was complaining to me about Within Epsilon trying to be too ASD but this year you saw a lot orginal style from pyrotech even trough it might remind you a bit from last years pyrotech prod.
Adapt has been always good at effects(MOAR COOL EFFECTS PLS!)but style haven't been that good, I think they can build up a better style in their next prod cause I think they learned something from this demo, a bit like pyrotech did.
C'mon! Don't you think that this demo have a lot of good effects and (IMO) fancy cameramovement(similar to "Balance" demo).
added on the 2009-08-10 14:00:45 by MuffinHop MuffinHop
I liked it and imo it should've placed a lot higher. I don't actually think it tries to be ASD alike. It doesn't really have any kind of story, adapt is mostly focusing on effects, and that's fine by me, not every demo needs to be ASD clone. To me, some of the scenes sorta reminded me of certain ASD demos, but still overall I didn't get the feeling that this would've been an ASD copy. About the demo itself, it was good. Probably the new best from adapt. I think the forest scene at the end was not that interresting and was dragged on for too long but everything else was simpyly good. Bassacdets track was nice too.
rulez added on the 2009-08-10 14:08:49 by noby noby
ASD? TBH, I havent even seen their demos at all after the proge 2005 winner, except ant-demo which was nice. Devour is unfinished and what you see is mostly placeholder stuff with hacked timing & coords and such. First 60 seconds are about as they should've been. Missing things like postprocessing effects and particleshowers and such...

We still submitted it, nice if you like even something in it :) if you dont, then too bad.

1999 called...
"Overcomplicated" fits it pretty well.
added on the 2009-08-10 22:19:16 by Paranoid Paranoid
hmm, the potential is definitely there, but somehow it's too messy, somewhat ugly, does not really work. but almost :)
and i liked the music!

The same blala said, but for me is a rulez

better luck next time. Shows a lot of potential, but the final result is just way to cluttered.

No matter what all the no-talent losers are saying here, this one had some really awesome looking effects and great music.

I don't see much ASD in there, but a consistent style with previous Adapt demos, evolving constantly.

Should've scored way, way higher in the compo. Well ok the last effect (nokia+hand) was a little bit WTF :) One more killer effect there and the result could've been completely different.

yeah what kurli said =)

Although sometimes i found it too much layering and the music was sometimes strange to the picture, i still give it a thumbs up.

9th? wtf?

No matter what all the no-talent losers are saying here, this one had some really awesome looking effects and great music.

Exactly. Kurli has leading.

Can you pseudo-democoders out there please be a bit more friendly when expressing your opinion? It doesn't exactly motivate..
(I'm still recovering from NVision demo "comments"..)

Respect to Adapt - Please keep up the nice work!

I don't know why this ranked the last, I really really liked this one as I mentioned on the compo studio as well... :(

Usual Adapt-style + nice music, there's just too much of... everything :)

Brillant in every way.
Nice colors and ligthing.
Plus a very good music.
This did not deserve the last place.

I also thought it was rather messy but I really liked those flares

It has its flaws but it also has good things and there is something cool about it in the end.
rulez added on the 2009-08-12 04:47:34 by keops keops
I seriously didn't get it
too overloaded and weird/messy design for me (especially in the second half of the demo, so maybe a part of this if because of the deadline)
Don't like the font either.

So nice effects and nice music, but I didn't get in the demo at all :/.

did not deserve the last place, that's for sure
bot on the other hand it looks like a modern-day version of a bad "3dsplayer" demo from ±1999, whatsup with the flares? :) (sorry uncle-x..)
added on the 2009-08-13 01:12:05 by superplek superplek
you know i love adapt's prods in some twisted way =)))

it's amazing, how you guys manage to end up with such visual results, having such cool code fx from the beginning.

on the other hand, it's just me and you must be having your own vision, doing those things during the years.

so you are the true deliverers of the coder colors!!! =)))

I've always liked your demos -- although I can't figure out why you always place badly. Keep making awesome stuff like this.
rulez added on the 2009-08-16 18:58:47 by ab ab
There are nice effects and some scenes look actually good despite the "too much of everything" factor (or because of that :). The problem is that some of the scenes look so dull and plain ugly. Especially the ending.

almost asd style of transitions. ah the car scene nearly destroyed its abstract feeling. needs more thumbs anyway.
