moody and great soundtrack. visuals had too much glow for my taste but still a very fine prod.

one of my favorites from the compo. sweet visuals create a nice and moody atmosphere. might have worked a bit better with some more representative content.

visuals bore quickly, but i like the audio

aside of superb shading and music, special thanks for existing development of the story, which seems to be very optional in nowaday's ambient demos. =)) (hello, mfx!)

the beginning is so long and boring, before the dialogue; the rest sort of saves it
Pretty warm colors!

I love this noise demo.

shader compile error on ati

What can I say: A noise demo I like!
rulez added on the 2009-10-25 19:13:17 by Salinga Salinga
well, it was ok! Nice colours and not too much noise. Of course not as cool and interesting as the last demos from Jean Nine.

seen on youtube now, and I agree with what people said before me

the glow gets annoying sometimes but massive soundtrack and build up

btw you can replace the OGG in the data folder so the demo reacts to your chosen music/sounds. ;)

My cup of abstract ambience!

Simply awesome.

I usually don't think these kinds of demos are "the shit", but this IS the shit :)

Damn you for not supporting ATI. Looked pretty nice on youtube though.

I loved the "effect" and the events direction, even though more events/screen changes would have been nicer.
rulez added on the 2009-10-26 19:20:05 by dixan dixan
An EXCELLENT effect, but only one. Too long and too minimalistic, sorry. This will totally rule if incorporated to something with more content
added on the 2009-10-26 19:50:43 by mstuomel mstuomel
A little too minimalistic for me but good nonetheless.

During the compo, I got really bored of all that ambient stuff.. This one got my interest since it was very good looking at least. Guys, next time a demo with some proper music, OK?

So this is what a noise demo by Matt Current would look like.
Even though it looks like the technically most advanced virtual light machine, it fails to appeal to me in any way ...

i like it
rulez added on the 2009-10-27 18:12:37 by blala blala
oooh yeah that was the shit :D

Great effects in there, it oozed energy near the end. I enjoyed the atmosphere too.
rulez added on the 2009-10-27 18:23:08 by psonice psonice
Too abstract and random for me, but it looks like some effort went into it so it's definitely a step up from the average minimalist demo.

nice ambient demo

Extremely BORING... sorry MC.

Has some great moments, but overall a tad too boring and abstract for me.

nice to see ambient finally getting a stable place in demos. while this may not be a chartbreaker by definition, it's great material for the chillout hours.
way to go, waiting for more.
rulez added on the 2009-11-05 22:26:01 by dalezy dalezy
I got the same error that noby got. Maybe it hates my XP Pro. SP3, ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of RAM), etc.? :P

infofile.txt said: "My recent demos haven't worked very well with ATI. I tried to debug possible causes and at least fixed many warnings, but I don't have appropriate hardware for testing. Sorry." :(

Had to watch the video and it looked nice, so pig. Get some testers next time. Send them debuggers too.

Has quite interesting visuals, but should be most likely watched on a huge screen.

This is what we could call a kind of "numerical chaos" !

jsyk, ATI 5870, 5970 are currently the best consumer cards available.

so fix it for ATI, k?

very nice prod, but no thumb for the ATI fail.
