brainsaw soundtrack!!! :)
sync!!!!! :)

music is awesome as expected, and the sync is brilliant in some places (quadpod) but i'm somehow missing more depth in this scenery - it's just plain grounds with an object at 0,0,0 and other objects approaching.

still, very very solid! :)

Even though I don't really like this kind of dubstep, this is probably best production I've heard on a demoscene soundtrack ever. Just glorious. Kaktusen must've really dumped his whole bag of tricks on this one. Graphics-wise the objects and effects are quite ugly but the post-processing does a great job saving it. Also, lots of love for running perfectly @ 2560x1600! I liked this. Hence, here's your thumb good sirs.

And this comment is not for PlayPsyco in general but for everyone: precompile your shaders to bytecode prior to shipping your demo, just that, add that databuildstep. Not even a full PAK file format, no, just that. These can't compile shader errors are such a bunch of unnecessary bullshit in my eyes. Though I readily admit to have no knowledge of the OGL innards on non-fixed-platforms.

mixed feeling, it's quite a blast stylewise, musicwise, sync and direction but brrr the graphics are fugly!
beats the shit out of the flt demo if u ask me. but then again, u shouldnt ask me things.

DIRECTION! Love it. The music had its worse moments, but I bow down to the amount of work you have had to put into this prod in order to make all the syncing possible.
Still, technically-wise I can see very little progress compared to Phon. So next time this happens you are not getting an up-thumb from me :)

Great demo, especially from a visual point of view, but this glitchy, stuttery stuff is getting real old and cliched now and kinda feels like it's holding back the demo.
rulez added on the 2011-04-27 00:27:10 by Wade Wade
Good people of PlayPsyCo, please read the following as constructive criticism:

This demo does not measure up to your good standards, at least as demonstrated in Phon and Camden town and previous intros. For the following reasons:

* It is painfully derivative, a poor man's Ether, The ballet dancer and even Frameranger. The effects in these demos were artistically understated, unassuming and in perfect balance with the surrounding environment. Here is they are just used as a filler in a 3D flyby transition. And to give you a more solid example, consider your walker: in 'dancer' it really feels like it is some sort of an exotic alien that is probably 500 meters tall and is after you as soon as it regains balance. Here it is feeble, with its tiny thin legs, living in an empty environment with no other element on screen to draw a comparison of relative sizes. Without the help of an inspired camera this thing could be squashed by somebody's foot. It is supposed to be a mean machine but I never get this feeling.

* So many objects that have no purpose in the scene other than to add more unneeded visual complexity. For example there are some floating potatoes and wobbling ribbons that intersect and then some weird looking billboarded flowers. In the same scene. For what purpose exactly? what does this try to show? Is this the natural (earthly) world vs the robotic? because to me it looks like a mash-up of routines and shaders for the sake of making it look complex.

* Saturation/Intensity levels too strong. Too bombastic but leaves you with an empty feeling.

* The postprocessing effects are way overused. The visual scratches are probably trying to hide something and the FOV is just blurring out half of the background.

* I find the music predictable and going nowhere but I understand this can be very subjective.

Anyway, almost not a sucks but not a rulez either. But I understand why people had fun watching this. Once.

r0m>out of sync

Great (not to say awesome) "in your face" effect on the first view, but the concept&progression are weak... it's (sadly) not the kind of demo you remember/want to watch asap.

But I'm sure one day PlayPsyCO will release the ultimate demo!

nice pastel colors, sync of course, nice soft feeling i dont feel in Phon but that piece can be more considered as megademo and in its variety and IMHO can't be beaten by this release, even it's reusing in audio the same tricks which worked before. ..the plot can be shallow but for me in its genre it's very pleasing hiclass creation i'm ATM consuming at daily basis :)

"brilliant hear some dubstep in a demo"

dude, have you paid attention to any demos in the past year. so many are this style now, it's overdone. everyone tries to out-glitch-out-wobble-out-noise everyone else without adding actual substance.

If you combine "Gamma", "Frameranger" and "ballet dancer" into a single demo and leave out any kind of soul, you get this one. IMHO this demo is a large step backwards after "Phon" and "Revolver".

Yaay! Pulsating flowers! \:D/ The robot Gerridae looks a bit too heavy to stand on water, methinks :3 But then again, maybe it uses some hitech robot powers to do so ;D

What Navis said. Basically.

We all remember Ether and Ballet Dancer, compared to them this is rather poorly executed with some very, maybe even too similar details.

Also, textures and the objects were also very "geometrical" most cases (except for the Earth part, honestly, it's the best one I've liked most so far).

Appreciate the lot of work in it tho.

the music standing alone is probably quite unattractive, but for this demo its absolutely perfect, even though it's very cliché (dubstep, stutter glitch retrigger-igger-ger-er-r, glitch, puff, peng!). but hell, you can go for really nice audio/video syncs thanks to these hip things, which you've done really well.

i couldn't say that i didn't enjoy this ride, so... :)

Making it ATI-compatible is not too hard, you just need your shaders to be STANDARDS COMPLIANT!

Not 4 ATI Cards....... I don´t understand.... Why only NV ????

chudik: ...And avoid relying on dFdy giving the right sign-bit when rendering to FBO...And avoid using gl_FrontFacing, GL_LINE_SMOOTH, GL_POINT_SMOOTH. And avoid mixing fixed function and programmable pipelines, and all the other features that has been broken in the recent driver releases.

Yeah, I used to think ATI + OpenGL wasn't THAT big of a deal. Until I got myself an ATI GPU at work, now I know better.

chudik: This was the state of OpenGL affairs in March.
In addition you sometimes have to rewrite your shader because the ATI compiler throws "internal compiler error".
And,.. I won't mention the fun of getting "unexpected error" in AMD's GPU ShaderAnalyzer ;)

Nice. Music and sync were great, visuals were on the edge of being a bit dull at times. ATI support would be great, can't watch it this way.

You have a good engine, and nice effects. But I don't like the direction, things seem to go nowhere, and I have to agree with Navis. Also, I really don't like the ending.
Still, it's not so bad.

massive glitching is not so much fun anymore imo.
just to make it look different from some mentioned demos.. i dunno.

I liked the visuals (gfx and effects), although i agree, the blurr is too much at times. I don't mind that "its going nowhere", because i think it doesn't claim to. i like it as an effect show. The Sync with the soundeffects is astomishing and the soundtrack itself, i agree, comes along pretty massive. It does its part to make the demo as a whole work. Only thing i do miss in parts is some music.

Not sure this is the deserved winner either, but it's a killer demo regardless, with an excellent soundtrack. Gives off a really strong smell of mfx, though, both musically and direction-wise! Probably for the better, since I love mfx's style. :D

Would've been a weak thumb up if not for the "PlayPsyCo" sample which apparently needed to be repeated 1000 times in addition to sounding really awkward. Other than that, solid synch, excellent music production (but please stop doing dubstep now), strange narrative and ugly graphics.
