With sync and eggs touching, what else do you need? :)

Great sync, cool scenes (blue music meters bubble room), powerful.

Everything is good, except coder's colors.
Runs smooth here on Mac mini.

Pretty nice demo, gets better the more it progresses, music is tight as usual, especially like the guitar chunks over the dstep beat :)

Nice show.

Nice stuff; could have won. The only thing that really doesn't work is when it suddenly switches from clean dark-and-red to some random trippy happy colorscheme, but thankfully, that doesn't last too long.

A little bit of love for this demo, thanks for thinking of OS X.

CiH : We use both OS X and Win during development. The windows version might as well be the "port" :) We can also build Linux binaries, but skipped it for now to avoid adding more nasty hacks to bypass driver bugs. Not to mention ATI issue on the HD2XXX cards under OS X. (related to D24_S8 buffers)

Sweet! The scene with the ball projecting light on the tunnel was neat :) It could benefit of some extra work on the shading/aesthetics though.

"music" vote

There's a truckload of cam shaking and cutting and glitching to make those very pedestrian scenes look interesting. Everything is rather well executed, but it's also not exciting and interesting enough to be really memorable.

Nice effects, sync and attitude :)

Had the tune on near constant loop on Soundcloud, really kicks ass :)

I like the clean looks. But this is not as good as Sim Reich.

Pretty cool. I like it.

Consistent design.

couple decent scenes. thumb down for the same old norwegian style of demo soundtracks.

The best tunnel I've ever seen, but:
haven't we already seen enough cubes and spheres? ...
added on the 2012-04-13 22:26:46 by xTr1m xTr1m
Cool effects, especially the tunnel. I probably shouldn't like this for the lack of concept and unifying theme, but for some reason I do... it reminds me of the demos of old when you just did cool stuff and put it all together.
rulez added on the 2012-04-14 17:49:41 by Preacher Preacher
Cool demo. Great use of plain good old blinn-phong.
rulez added on the 2012-04-15 04:44:13 by xernobyl xernobyl
psenough: I agree. Ambient noise, funk or gospel music would have fit these visuals way better.

for the tunnel.

i like the music but the visuals were totally uninspired :(

I am not so sure about a design choice or two (e.g. the icecream balls) but at least it wasn't boring!

some nice stuff there mostly ruined by fucking awful sync - just because you CAN put stuff on the beat doesn't mean that you constantly SHOULD, especially not when the camera has to travel through the entire scene so all you get from it is motion sickness. not very good direction.

the effects are good-ish and the music has some moments but it feels really meandering, especially when there's guitar chug coming out of nowhere.

The prod got repetitive fairly quickly. It could appeal to some, but in my case it just bored the hell out of me. It does have potential tho, so let's stick to a piggy.

I don't follow the trends on the PC scene but I like it.

didn't like the first 2 minutes, couldn't stand the music and visuals weren't to my liking either. After 2 minutes when the music changed style I liked what I heard and saw!
added on the 2012-07-13 22:26:01 by StingRay StingRay
generally good, but some parts went on a bit long. and has chromatic aberration (bad).
awkward colors kills the thumb

Made a vid :)
The music by gloom is atmospheric and not overproduced, which I like :) I also enjoy the look and feel of the tunnel scenes, although a few less of the beat-synced glitch fx would have been even better IMO. Good demo!

Some good scenes, some bad. But i really love music and fonts. Additional plus for MacOS and Linux ports.
