Weird topic, but anyway really fresh and brilliantly executed demo air again!
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 00:06:31 by fiveofive fiveofive
Wow. Seriously, wow. The theme was a bit silly at times, but the execution, the effects and especially the music were simply fantastic. Excel-fucking-lent.

preacher: well it was released at SILLY venture ;)

Pretty solid demo. Great music.

Great design... Great transitions and fx... Now we are getting censor design scrollers, too? ;)

Many thanks - from me especially for music appreciation ;) But biggest respect goes to our main coder - Ajcek - fighting with tiredness he was closing production constantly at the party place until it's finished.
@fiveofive: Lamers are known from being weird ;) It was very nice finally to meet you in person and have that honour, that you've made final audition of your compo entry on my Falcon ;) Next time I'll take part in that category too.

best looking demo on a8 up to date, very smooth and fresh transitions, some of the best 4 color gfx I've ever seen. only complaints that the pace feels slow, and there are no "WOW!" effects.

Oh POKEY, how do I love thee.

Omg, great design, solid theme, some effects (even though I'd like to see moer fx)

Am I the only one to make this connection? Really nice demo. This is why I'm always looking forward to SV releases!

This demo is brilliant ! Kind of artistic for sure :)
The overall theme which concern all of us =D
Excellent design all along the demo.
Cool music that fits very well.

JUst so Sillyful =D

GoOd wOrK and ideas here :)

Good work. Solid demo.

+ nice transition between the effects and attention to detail.
- maybe a bit too long and a bit inconsistent.

Very nice -- instaclassic for the XL/XE!

nice transitions, but overall not my taste

@Morden: big plus for observation :) Yes, it was also among our inspirations - absolutely ingenious :) Unfortunately, I just can't make ambient music - every time I try, some rythm and clear melody is appearing in the front ;)
added on the 2013-11-13 10:45:50 by wieczor wieczor
nice, especially Censor style scroller.
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 11:00:33 by xeen xeen

Too bad most images are conversions based on the very Floyd-Steinberg like dithering. A few hours of paint-over to bring some style to the dithering would really pay off.
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 11:18:38 by p01 p01
@p01: you'll be probably surprised, but graphics, including dithering is pixelized manually :)
added on the 2013-11-13 12:42:51 by wieczor wieczor
Great!!! Keep up the good work!!!!
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 13:31:45 by Sir_Lucas Sir_Lucas
Wieczor: It'll be the first time someone does that. It looks too bad compared the the good quality of the pictures themselves.

Otherwise great demo. :D
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 13:35:35 by Exin Exin
wieczor: Color me surprised. The dithering, on the mummy in the screenshot seen here, but also on the face before the mummy, and the syringe pictures, looks computer generated.

The floyd-steinberg-ey dithering is strange in a prod that is otherwise so polished. If you guys want, I can give a hand to push some pixels around for the next one.

@p01, @Exin: I apologize, I was wrong, or just misunderstood something - you're right. Graphics where manually _created_ by graphicians, but some convertion took a place and dither is a result of it :) Only thing is that is mostly ordered dither, not Floyd-Steinberg, irregularity occurs from amount of shades close to each other. So I'm sorry for confusing, but I've to admit that I was confused as well ;) However, can't find anything wrong with such approach, but agree - it's just matter of taste.

Reminds me of Booze Design demos, and that's a very good thing! I must say that the topic you've got here is rather serious. This demo has good design, good graphics, good music and proper pace. Overall a solid demo! Hope to see more demos like that!

I liked more Boogie Nights, but still this is a very nice prod! Quality stuff.

Finally something with quite non standard music :) Great gfx, as usually, refined transitions. Well done!
rulez added on the 2013-11-14 19:08:09 by dhor dhor
That is great "infusion" with ace transitions.
ok , no sexy nurses inside :) but include sexy wieczor's music.

Didn't rock quite as much as the previous SV entry, but still nice.
rulez added on the 2013-11-22 07:24:04 by Marq Marq
A huge step forward in music, linking and concept departments, really liked the mood. Unfortunately code really disappoints in comparison with Boogie Nights, expected much much more :/ Graphics are a mixed bag, some look like plain conversions regardless of the technique, some are really nice e.g. borders.
Also I second Oswald: pacing feels slow.
Overally solid prod, looking forward to see your next blockbuster :)

Top notch demo, brilliant graphics, really nice transitions and fades, maybe hasn't got that much pace but was very nice to see it "live" during the compo. nice work "lamers" :-D

Nice artdemo on 8-bit Atari ftw \:D\

Very good work, even if the theme isn't my cup of tea. The giant waving scroller was a surprise.

No spectacular effects, but thumb up of for the good idea and music.

searched and finally found it again. still in love with that logo on the dna sequence.
Love the DNA logo a lot, also there's plenty of really good pixelgraphics in this.

Pretty nice, a bit dark to my taste, but the nice storyline makes up for it.
rulez added on the 2019-11-07 21:01:55 by spkr spkr
Cool demo, but it was a bit too dark for my taste as well. Which shows that it worked, because it emotionally touched me - which seldom a demo does. It shows that this is going beyond being "just" a demo but being art.
