I actually liked it. It's weird, hypnotic, with the scanline thing, grey colors, the little color changes, strange distorts and ambient music, especially after the middle I am diving into this. And there are some good variations of effects. And the wolf is funny, with plasma, rotozoomer and itself into it's walls. Watched it on dosbox and then the youtube party version too.

It's sort of a hybrid between a mid-90s demo grpahically bu it has a late 90s tune.

Very nice QB, weird in the good way

It's like watching a collection of three or four 256b effects, randomly put in sequence and replayed every so often with different parameters. The music did nothing for me, as it seemed to be rather unrelated to the action on screen. This needs way more sync and way less lerp. :)

Has got 'something'. Really enjoyable.

This was done in QBasic? Shit, as an old QBasic nerd who experimented with texture mapping, plasmas, fire etc. I'm obliged to thumb this. Apart from that: what tomaes said.

Tjoppen: QuickBasic != QBasic.

I love how it contains really old effects but the aesthetics are really modern compared to that. The wolfenstein engine with the fake reflections is really cool, I only wish that the the plasma with the default VGA palette hadn't ruined it.

Wow... another MS-DOS demo, I was looking forward during the steaming to see your production. This demo remind me of the NAID party somehow! :)

Nice flow, don't like the maze except when walls has effects.

Some of the the effects are quite nice, some are quite ugly. Music is alright. Props for still making a dos demo in this day and age :)
