Interesting 4k style - like it how the birds move around in a chaotic, but then again ordered way forming different things.
The music could be better though.

Here's the Youtube Rip:

Horrible in every way.

Nice flocking! Though it would be better to have some vertex animations for the bird wings instead of the commodore logo.

Thumb up for the intro, thumb down for the random oldschool reference. Piggy it is.

hmmm piggy, is that really flocking? looks more like fake flocking.

I really dig the idea of using a particle-style flow but actually turning the particles into something with more substance. The bird-swarm idea is kinda obvious when you think about it, but thats not bad at all! The thumb goes for the idea alone because the tune and the technical execution can be vastly improved. I hope someone (or yourself) pick it up and push it further, theres enough potential in it for a kickass 64k.

why is there no simple movement of the wings to create the illusion of birds? but without it's just okay.

Nice idea! Animation is missing for the birds, but still like it!

Ok i guess. The idea is good, but i am missing a bird like animation, too. that would've rocked. And whats with the "music" ?

Ah, birds... Nature's native particle engine. :)

Bonus points for the idea, but it seems wasted on an incompetent realization. Had the sprites been animated or their movement at least a bit more natural, it would have made for an excellent, immersive demo, no matter the size. You'll be surprised just how demoscene-like living beings can behave sometimes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ--RyN0o1k

It's a nice change from your usual raymarcher intros. Yes, the crows are a bit unanimated and ugly, but the concept and the morphs and travelling through clouds and stuff nice idea.

nice base idea but the results isn't really... well, it's a meh :|

some more polishing and birds animation could have helped. In this case it's just okish -.

The crows' orientation being completely independent of their movement is jarring.

for the idea
