Doublegreet thumb I guess even if I liked the weighted Voronoi more than the homage FX... next time an OCS 1MB demo as homage, right? Right???! :) Hehe.

Not a bad demo, but I would wish tributes to $platform would be made on $platform itself.

if you want to do 68k, then do it on 68k. the only thing i liked in this were the graphics by made. the soundtrack reminded me of Love / VD.

Great stuffs! When it shows "Press Fire", I pressed spacebar and the demo paused and I thought it was some kind of error lol

I like the soundtrack, especially that tracker-style glissandos and tambourine sound. Does the music was made in a tracker?

Kind of incoherent, but some nice atmospheric effects with great sound.

I love this demo for that what it is: A Hommage to the golden 68k times of the early 90s. Some people say it should be done on areal Amiga, but I anyway enjoyed the great gfx, that superb sound and the colorful show all in all very very much.

I saw this baby grow over the last months and I must say: Great Work, guys.

@Manwe: Yes, the tune is 90% Protracker Mod by Dascon and just mastered afterwards by Virgill

Kudos to Soundy: This one runs smooth even on my shitty 2 year old stock HP Office Notebook (in Firefox)

Tune is nice, graphics too. But other than that: nope, not my cup of tea! For a "homage" to the 68000 A500 era there are way too many effects that do not fit at all and the whole demo looks more or less like a collection of randomly thrown together stuff to me. Didn't even manage to watch it to the end!

its clearly a newschool demo with a lot of oldschool references in it, some may like it some may not but the end-result i really sweet. really good js/webgl intros are scare so this deserves a doublethumb.

i also did a 1080p capture and its uploading to youtube as we speak.
if you are interested in the (1.2gig) source-capture (since yt will surely rape it) ill upload it somewhere later.

Hi there, thanks for that mass of reactions in a short period of time after our first "baby got walking".

Creating this demo has been a hell of fun and I honestly can´t wait till we return one day with another production.

As Triace already wrote in response to an earlier post, the main music ("Plagiatory") I did was approx. 50% done in pure 4channels, using PT2.3d.
Later on I transfered it to OpenMPT and added the part starting with the greetings in the demo, so it went out with 14channels in total.

Thanks musicwise have to go to Virgill for mastering my baby - I knew that he would add the percentage I wanted.
Not to forget my mate Triace for supplying me a desperately needed sampleset to choose from (for the "water noise" in the end, while the "fish" picture appears).

Overall thanks to anyone posting comments here - even the negative ones, as this shows at least we reached you and hey, that´s a success after all. :)

Special thanks to Soundy and Made - it has been a great adventure and I´m looking forward to the next one.

And please guys: take your time and watch the demo till the end - the endmusic called "Pax" was done by Soundy and it is a real beauty! So go and find out yourself..

Very newschool wanting to be oldschool. Can be a double edged sword but managed to pull it off well in here.

Thumb up especially for doing your own engine and the quality of Made's graphics.
rulez added on the 2014-08-24 19:00:55 by psenough psenough
If it wasn't for Made this would be awful - as it stands it's passable, but remove the oldskool wankery and it falls apart real quick.
added on the 2014-08-24 19:16:25 by Gargaj Gargaj
I really have to agree with Gargaj, apart from the lovely Made gfx I just didn't enjoy it, neither did I like the music. But you obviously made alot of people happy, so well done for that!

Have to agree with Gargaj.

That being said, there's great potential! A couple of parts are rather well designed/thought and you've got skills. No doubt about that.

Can't wait to see them shine with originality and design.

A couple of art assets from Made used in a release that does not shit the proverbial bed that is WebGL. Here's Bruce with the weather!
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 02:35:04 by Shifter Shifter
As a bit of making of:
Check how Made created our Deadliners logo

Code is Open Source and can be forked from GitHub

I understand some don't like javascript, but it turns out to be a good way to have a cross-platform framework to send values to shaders... Though my heart remains in the asm and c++ lands.
added on the 2014-08-25 12:02:55 by Soundy Soundy
Solid thumb up just for getting Made to do some gfx again :D More of that please!

As for the rest.. hmm, mixed.

I really like that it's javascript (although chrome only, please fix that so I can watch it on my phone - the loader plays fine and is super smooth, but that's as far as it gets!).

The new school parts are pretty cool. The old school parts.. well, OK, but I'd like to see this done on an amiga, it's not impressive on a modern platform and I don't get much point in doing a tribute to an old computer like that. It kind of lets down the cool new bits.
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 13:34:12 by psonice psonice
I don't have much for the oldschool stuff, but this was the first time a javascript thingy surprised me in a positive way :)
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 14:14:56 by cupe cupe
So today a new group is born, pretty cool !! =]

Some parts are a bit on the long side, but overall this prods really kicks some asses!!! I especially enjoy the greetings part - I did not understand a single bit of it technically, but it was pretty good looking!

Finally, nice to see a 8 minutes-long demo on JS platform..
Keep up the good work!
(The 2 musics were both excellent btw, and Made's artwork was nice too!.)

Music has the oldskool feel. The effects are a weird mix of A500-like effects and modern raymarching stuff. Not sure what to think, really.
added on the 2014-08-26 17:41:23 by Blueberry Blueberry
Great 2D graphics, and some parts looked very nice! But it's sooo incoherent... I mean I've seen lots of incoherent PC demos before where parts are thrown together seemingly randomly, but throwing even different *styles* together (fake oldschool, raymarching, ...) is even worse.

No thumb down because of the gfx, the efforts, some isolated parts and the potential/promise this has...
added on the 2014-08-26 20:49:04 by Kylearan Kylearan
Very nice release with the Amiga vibe, how can you dislike that. But also very great graphic, superb tune and all nicely fit together in the demo. Well done guys.

rulez added on the 2014-09-01 12:51:01 by leGend leGend
Thanks for the bug report Joe. Shit, forgot to remove this alert box. This is not a crash, just a frame-rate warning for myself during development phase. Means the credits part frees the rendering context after the next FX (SnakeV2) has started. Must occur in very specific timing conditions. Well, explanations change nothing to your broken experience, sorry about that, and thanks again for reporting.
added on the 2014-09-01 13:35:16 by Soundy Soundy
Not bad, but the ending credits part was too long.

Celebrating the integration of WebGL in IOS 8:
- Now the demo runs on iPhone and iPad using Safari. Only the end part (credits) is missing.
- Other platforms: No more complaining is Chrome is not used (though once again the endpart is based on webkit chrome only features)

That´s not big news, but the demo is now bug fixed, and works back on all browsers, even Edge. Chrome still preferred though for frame-rate reasons.
And yeah, working on a real Amiga demo too ;)

People who called this wankery back in 2014 are wanking themselves to their own penis worth nostalgia today.. Perhaps this prod was released few years too early to avoid some misunderstandings. Follow-up prods on the real platforms of course proved that your sentiment was driven by heart and this is what I appreciate most in Deadliners work. Keep them coming! ;)
