A firstie with some proper design, that's rare :)

Very well done, especially the final scene

didn't run.
OpenAL32.dll is missing
I could run it after renaming "libOpenAL32.dll" to "OpenAL32.dll", but it only showed the title and after that the screen stayed black (with music running tho). :-/

same here. Except that i didn't need to rename.

Thanks for the feedback!

Sorry about the DLL thing. This is the party version, I'm working on the final. The first successful windows build was made 10 minutes before the deadline, so I was collecting the DLLs in a hurry.

As Salinga mentioned, the DLL is there, but its filename is wrong. If you have OpenAL installed, you won't notice this mistake.

About the black screen... I could not test the demo on ati/amd cards so if you have one of those, that might be the cause. Intel integrated chips I tried could not even open the window.

It ran quite fine on a Geforce 6600. (Well, it was a bit stuttery, but nothing major issue other than that)

Some cards might have video memory problems because of the hi-resolution textures.

As I said, I'm working on the final, so expect less visual errors, resolution options and a linux version.

Too short imho :) ... but this really has ATMOSPHERE... something I miss from so many bigger prods.

Nice atmosphere, but the face should have screamed at the end. I think that would have fit well with the tone of the music.

Deserved to place higher - very nice first demo!

A very nice demo, very well looking visuals and really nice music. For a first demo this is very good, looking forward to seeing more from you guys!

Simple and very well done, especially for a first prod!

What they all said. With a bit more unified design and a slightly faster pacing this would be really, really good. It's pretty good as it is though. And I loved the music.

this looked rather well done, even if its a bit lacking in the tech department

Nice first demo!

Quite OK, the design put this above the piggie line. Also not a fan of the music, but it did fit the visuals.

Problem on AMD is due to helix_post.frag and tube_post.frag using "input" as a uniform name. "input" is a reserved word in GLSL, and so the shaders fail to compile. In both shaders, replace "input" with "input_tex" and the demo runs fine.

not bad for a firsty. also, why did my brain start to think 'SPAAAACEMAAAAAN' due to the music? ;)

The early 1980s want their television drama suspense music back. ;)

But yeah, not bad for a firsty. A bit bare visually and the kewlers blood cell thing could use some polish, but it's definitely promising.
