Demo is HUGE for its platform (~27MB), needs STe with 4MB RAM and a fast-enough HD (or the appropriate emulator settings).

A so different & fresh demo despite it uses too much blender img precalcs :-) (I am just jalous of the result)

Well, too many animations without effects, but still fun to watch because of the usual XIA style :)

Animation heavy, but full of nice touches :)

Very mixed feelings about this one.
It has (almost) no realtime content and the unique XiA style only shows occassionally. Most of it is a sequence of 16-geyscale retouched pictures. It lacks the embedding story and variation of "Talk Talk 2" and is far too much of the same.
The soundtrack doesn't really save it either (80s pop music remakes in YM) and the final soundtrack that is apparently responsible for the sheer size sounds more like 16KHz than 50KHz and is not arranged in a way that the streaming would really pay off (which, by the way, works fine on a MegaSTE with the original Atari SCSI host adapter).

Then again, XiA obviously spent quite some effort doing all of it by himself and some parts look quite polished.
Still, i don't think i'll run it very often.

I could say "What Olli said just now" but I won't!

This isn't quite the Talk Talk 2 killer we hoped for and seems to include elements that were more about the people at the party than any external audience (combining with the 'party report' perhaps?)

It definitely could have lost a minute or so of the touched up still pics in the middle and been quicker and smarter from tidying up there. Still, I love Xia's style as always and hope we don't have to wait another two years for the next one.

Very specific well equipped STE version.
The story is interesting.
Original FX.

Some truly historical photo material ;) Let's name it, the innovative potential of XiA skyrockets, thanks for using all space available that nicely! Good soundtrack, specially in the endpart

Moah... have to say that I was a bit bored after a while, not really my cup of tea, even if it has its nice parts, too.
