Odd colors, but the code is sooolid! "ASD spoof with violins" might be a fitting description.

Great scenes with nice effects (the begining, scenes with the flute players, and the "city" at the end).
Some ASD nordic in fact ;-)

a very nice demo

What a surprise! Great art style and design, not so good music. A mixture of "Happiness" and "Ceasefire" and cool own ideas.

Awesome work and wonderful visuals. Soundtrack could use a facelift but this was definately my personal highlight of the compo!

I have to see it more times to notice every little detail, lot's of stuff are happening at times ala ASD style. I love all these particle stuff but don't like so much the music (ok, not the usual demomusic I enjoy).

Some really sweet scenes in there, probably my favourite from the compo! I love the music as well :)

Unfortunately fails to start on my machine with no error msg after the config screen. Vidcap please!

Some excellent effects and ideas. Could have been awesome, but there are a couple of flaws: I don't like the music, some transitions are quite bad (making scenes too much disconnected).

parts of this is just plain awesome whilst others are pretty sucky.
very strange demo.. especially the tractor/tank scene with the flying head was very weird.

+: Monstermaster, mogop and rosemaling. -: Feels a little disjointed, and the harvester scene felt unrealized.

I can appreciate the amount of work that went into this, so there's the thumb already. It's a really ambitious demo, but unfortunately I think it falls short of its own mark. It seems you took a lot of inspiration from ASD, so I'd suggest you also take Navis' advice to complete the demo and then put it away for a while, so you can look at it with fresh eyes before releasing it. Just a humble suggestion of course :-)

I hate the music in the first part. Effects are nice but feel disconnected. Definitely inspired by ASD ;)

Looked like someone shattered an ASD demo then haplessly scrambled to put it back together again, all the while weeping and cutting their fingers on the beautiful shards.

I really can't look the other way to the amount of effects and concepts picked up from happiness so I can't quite put my finger on wether this is a spoof, a tribute or an immitation. Nevertheless, there is lots of work involved in this, and as a first prod it sure leaves big promises on what's to come next from these guys. I did love the colours on the water very much as well. The soundtrack was weird to say the least, but it served well to heighten the freaky mood in this production.

And yeah, when scenes are seemingly disconnected from the storyline, smooth transitions between them help a lot =P

Waiting for your next prod =)
rulez added on the 2010-11-12 02:12:34 by aMUSiC aMUSiC
so this is was happiness would have looked like if it was asds first demo ;)
no seriously a little too much "borrowing" for my taste (even down to the music) mixed with some unpolished scenes/objects.
still one can see that there went a lot of work into this production: some ideas are quite cool (watercolors, cubefall!!) and the overall look is ok.
if this is really a first-prod its a very impressive one plus it was a pleasant ride --> gets my thumb!

Visuals for sure could have used more polishing. Opening part of the musik is extremely beautiful (if you can blend out the vocals).
Obviously the makers are ASD fans, code and music-wise speaking, but thats what its about, being inspired. Gret work, pleas continue.

Music was not my cup of tea. Visuals were nice, but some bug suddenly caused everything turn green.

thumbs down to music and style. visuals were OK except for the artifacts (entire screen goes green just before another scene starts. also red vertical bars in beginning)

It is almost a punch in the faces of top demogroups: "Hey, we took your effects and raped them! Yeah, baby!"
The result is still interesting and well done.

By the way, first youtube video with bug in tractor scene works 200% better and looks more interesting than "proper" solid models.

Not bad (pig). I couldn't get the demo to run on my old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 machine. It exits right after starting from its configuration options. Is it because of my two years old ATI Radeon 4870 (512 MB of RAM) video card? I don't know if it can do OpenGL version 3.3.

Really nice one. But something's missing. Please get a designer, your colors are weird. Same for the music, switching from a music to another that way gives an unconsistent prod imo. Well, keep it up, pretty please.

I'm a bit lost with that one, can't tell if it's a spoof or not.

Solid effects, some very nice looking parts, and some pretty ugly ones (camera ruins the water scene for example).
rulez added on the 2011-11-11 05:50:00 by Zavie Zavie
This one gets a thumb for sure, because, I mean, come on: it's definitely a spoof. You can imagine the Gammel Opland guys crowding on Pouet going "Come on, come ON ... please someone flame us for 'ripping off' ASD!!" ;)
