For the screenshot scene, and the amount of effects/scenes <3

Rough around the edges, but has some stylish parts and good flow. Sound is a bit jarring, not necessarily in a bad sense.

Solid thumbs up.

admittedly I liked it better on the stream; the awful encoder artifacts made it seem much more satori-ish :P I'm not huge on the music, but there are loads of scenes and something about this style really gets me. Thumb!

what a ride in 64k! music is not my cup of tea but it fits to the fast-paced intro. overall very nice so thumbs up :)

nice intro, lots of work involved, but please ask someone else to choose right colors :D

Nice soundtrack.

In bizzaro world perhaps. Even viagra's 64k tune was less annoying and more musical than this.

Nice soundtrack.

lovely visuals, nice colours, slightly weird music.

A lot of various scenes, new and different ideas. Music is strange, but fits to visuals and synch is okish too. THUMB UP!

Will you provide k1? ;o)

Weird stuff, makes me recall the intro style of the late nineties for some reason.
rulez added on the 2014-08-24 19:32:30 by Preacher Preacher
It seemed a bit disconnected (lacking direction), and the soundtrack was weird indeed. Overall, it was pretty nice, though.

Some very nice parts, weird soundtrack but anyway ok.

Finally someone other than Farbrausch making something decent in Werkkzeug, never mind the rough edges. Music was weird-ish, but not in a "turn it off ffs" way, so it's not a problem. I liked.

Very nice, lot of cool stuffs

A production which contains a torus nowadays deserves a thumb! :D
rulez added on the 2014-08-24 22:02:45 by mayday mayday
That was a nice watch especially considered that it was made with Werkkzeug! Really nice style and graphics. And I enjoyed the music too, much better than hearing the same old dubstep tune!

Crazy, creative and freakin' cool!
rulez added on the 2014-08-24 22:21:37 by Bobic Bobic
Half agreeing with Stingray there, glad that there is no dubstep included. Music seemed like rather random picked noise with a rhythm (at least to me) though, but the visuals were great. Plus: It has a donut <3

Nice WZ-pr0n, bad soundtrack

Thanks for all the feedback! I'm happy that most of you enjoyed it!
Yeah, I apologize for the music, which yeah... it sux. I wanted to make a cool glitch track tune, but yeah... We don't have a musician on board so that's a problem. Next time I'll do something less ear-grating, or actually get a proper musician, because I rarely have the spark for making good tunes.

Also the colors... I decided to go with more random colors because pure glitches are often like that. Of course, I decided to choose more proper color schemes for some of the scenes. Tho yeah, in the end that wasn't a good idea :/.

Overall, it's not as good as I wanted it to be, but I'm still happy with the end result. And yes, I knew from the start that this demo wouldn't be something everyone would like, but I actually wanted to do a glitch-inspired demo and so I did that. Of course, couldn't have done it without Zana's help. :) We already got some ideas for a more consistent theme demos, but for now it's just discussion and a quest for a musician.

Thanks again for your support :). I really appreciate the feedback and hope to see you next demo :)

Liked it, good job!
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 00:56:17 by Soundy Soundy
I didn't dislike the minimal-electro-industrial track. I bit simplistic tune, maybe over the top robotic lacking soul, but not bad. Good direction and flow overall. The dynamic visual was the best part of this demo.
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 02:13:14 by ramon ramon
Does it play the music on a floppy disk drive?..
Anyway, nice intro. I like all that different parts, including end credits. Well designed.
Diversity is a key!

Reminded me of old DOS intro/demo. Some nice visuals, in pseudo-oldskool style.
Music, well you just kept the glitch sound on all the time, would have been better if there were some pauses innit or a change of instrument/modulation? :)

yay watched demo on real hardware at work it did not like my SLI setup at home and i enjoy it the inbuilt speaker of an Hp Elite 8100 made the sound sound burkigt and old aswell ;D

Holy crap this might actually be one of the best WZ demos - mad props for 1) keeping it varied at all times and 2) not doing the "usual" V2 soundtrack (although that did start becoming repetitive after a while).
rulez added on the 2014-08-25 13:27:16 by Gargaj Gargaj
the audio somehow really hurt and made me not enjoy this as much as i could have. The track itself was okay, but the instruments and sound were a bit painful.

Thumb for everything up to (and including esp.) the greetings part. Nice transitions and ideas. Beyond that, it becomes a bit too random for me.

Really nice style ! Also greets back ;)

I like the visuals and the soundtrack on their own, but I don't really like the mix of the two.
Maybe more sync would do the job. Or a better direction. I don't know.

But that's really cool overall.

Holy crap, it actually runs under Wine on my ~2007 notebook (w/Intel gfx even!) Wasn't expecting that to work! Some great scenes & effects in this one, even at low fps they look nice... ;) Also, I like the music; it fits the style and is interesting. Not 100% polished but good!
rulez added on the 2014-08-26 14:29:32 by jmph jmph
Lots of nice-looking screens! And bold move to use a Atari VCS 2600 sound chip for the music. :p

Decent, and it ran well on my very old, Windows XP Pro SP3 machine! :D

But this is 2001 tech with glow, marred by misguided music and titling.

Sorry, but this is more than 10 years late. Bad visuals, and worse soundtrack.

What in the hell was I thinking when I made this?

I just watched this again and it was physically painful!
