Nice demo, love the "running man on the grid" part! :) Good stuff, music fits well too.

Very hot!

A console demo is a tough challenge, but a Jaguar demo is definitely awesomely rare :)

Very cool, quite many effects, fine constant dark-tech mood all over, and great visual/music/code coherence.

Seriously stunning Jaguar demo, especially for an invite! In fact, now my favorite Jaguar demo! Love the music track and the mood! :) Runs perfectly in Virtual Jaguar.

Ramon: but the timings are total different in emulator compared to real hardware.

Pretty sick. So, is there a way to put this on a disc and run it on the Jag/CD?

Stunning demo!

raina: it's a 4mb ROM, it could be flashed to skunkboard, jagtopus or other flash cart

The great raw style of Morphonic releases now on the Jag!

Fun to see new stuff on the Jaguar! Pretty good as well!

awesome soundtrack

Lot's of coders porn and interesting transitions and weird cool stuff, it's pretty cool to see more of what the jaguar can do.

Excellent stuff in there!

I really like the music here?! Platform, too.

had no idea this was an invitro :P nonetheless my thumb is firmly upwards!

I like it a lot, great work Checkpointers! I think it ranked much too low in the compo though.
rulez added on the 2014-08-11 16:32:53 by evil evil
too bad the boring music totally destroyed the good rest for me

Great demo ! Love the work you put into these :) See you at Sillyventure 2k14 :)

Pretty cool. Awesome music, Sir is a whiner.

The effects could've used a bit more direction and interaction with the music, though.
rulez added on the 2014-08-11 21:16:42 by skrebbel skrebbel
The walker effect is the bomb. Like the dark vibe and music + clean design. The last effect was shown unnecessarily long for my taste. Anyhow, the best demo the jag has to offer by now. Great job!
rulez added on the 2014-08-11 23:23:12 by fiveofive fiveofive
very nice stuff. the checkpoint morphonic lab demos are always a bit experimental. nice to see something different, though may not be to everyones taste.

Loved this one.
rulez added on the 2014-08-12 12:26:20 by degauss degauss
Probably the best thing that's even seen on a Jaguar, which is unfortunately saying a lot :/

platform thumb.

great creative use of the jag. dislike the double pixels, but still a landmark jaguar production (even counting the games!). well done checkpoint!
rulez added on the 2014-08-12 17:20:55 by earx earx
Wow! Technically, this is the best i have seen on the Jaguar. The rather monotoneous and uninspired music steals some of the fascination though...
rulez added on the 2014-08-12 20:34:12 by Paranoid Paranoid
Nice invitro, added the date for the party to the calendar if i am near Germany

Cool to see what the Atari Jaguar is capable of!!!

very nice! great music!

what Sir and paranoid said
Didn't like the music, but anyway good one, and great platform.
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 00:48:38 by Chainsaw Chainsaw
Nice work !
Original fx such as walking man on the net and several others ! :)
It's the first demo i see on Jaguar.
Cool to see what cool coders can do with it today !
Great worlk ^^
Hope there will be more to come =)

Checkpoint rocks !!

All in all, enjoyable, but too long, Music tears it down a little. For great visuals and Platform: thumb
rulez added on the 2014-08-29 23:46:57 by Triace Triace
Some nice ideas and tech in there, but also several bad design decisions (IMHO). Way too much black backgrounds; that "flat" walker looked horrible; pacing is aweful; music is annoying and repetitive.

But nice platform. :)

technically not as impressive as i hoped, but for the platform and some of the effects:

Awesome! Amazing to see what this great console can do when it's pushed a bit.

great one, nice to see a fresh falcon prod with enigmatic music!
bit lengthy though
rulez added on the 2014-11-09 22:16:56 by T$ T$
falcon? uhh?

Very bad "design" as Kylearan said, seconded. Too long sequences without any re-positioning of "camera" or such.
Also seconding Preacher here too.
added on the 2014-11-13 15:18:50 by leGend leGend
Pretty much have to agree with legend here. The presentation was quite lacking and the pacing felt way too slow. The codework could be the best thing ever on the Jaguar, but I just don't see it.

But on a positive note, I did like the music, and we got greets :)

Next Jaguar demo/intro by us will be a better, I hope :)
texture-mapper is still too slow(brute clipping each scanline, even on polygons that are totally inside the window).. lazy coder.
added on the 2014-11-18 13:45:30 by lsl lsl
I liked the pace and the music. Had a good weight to it.

excellent stuff

Finally got to run this on the real hardware. Nice and deep music, and pretty baller effects.
