I love this demo, mostly because of N3xu5 very atmospheric gfx.
The soundtrack is nice too, could have been more connected to the visuals at times.
Its great to see another oldschool group entering newschool territory, i hope this wasnt the last one of you.
YT capture is uploading as we speak (but may take some more hours).

Significantly above average for a quick demo. Sleek prod. Funky tune. Fractal landscape was great. Grows on you after a few sessions. Well optimized, locked 60FPS on my GTX 660 @ 1.3Ghz.

Unfortunately, resolution selector with...4 resolutions...2 of which are non standard. Sadly had to watch at sub par resolution for my setup. I'll let it slide because done in 3 days with no sleep.

Yes, this is definitely a party version. The aspect ratio is hardcoded in the demo so that's part of the reason for the limited resolution options. Many things were sacrificed to get it ready for the party.

Expect a final polished version in a week or so. Youtube coming in a couple of hours.

Very slick production done in a short period of time. Has the right feel and right vibes. Expect more from us as we grow as a team on this platform. Special props to Drift, N3XU5 and Anthrium who put in the hard work here.

I must say though, for a party version, on the big screen, this was insanely epic. Well done for first place, you guys truly deserved it :D.

Yeah this rocked the big screen, amazing and great to see!

Brilliant!! Top prod. Deserves a heart. The pc scene and releases have been flat for months now and this has changed everything. Nice journey throughout the demo, new effects, pleasant gfx and a feel good tune. Well done drift for benchmarking the Australian demo scene! :)

some nice fx in there, could use a bit more polishing to make the effects a bit more interesting than just fractal flybies and the soundtrack sounds very 64kish ;)

This is some funky shit! Very nice.

Definite thumbs up for the nice change of phase as far as the soundtrack goes! Not produced exactly like I would've done or liked it, but I prefer something like this by at least a couple orders of magnitude so some generic x-step/dnb or whatever incested styles happen to be popular at the moment.

Visually it's like a beefed up 4k intro, but of course that means it looks and is directed much better than your standard intro. I really dislike the logo stuff, but man those tunnel effects (particularly the greets one) are sweet looking.
rulez added on the 2014-11-17 12:26:21 by noby noby
Really cheesy and glitzy and the relationship between the music and the visuals could be better. That said, some of the scenes are truly beautiful and it's got a nice oldschoolish vibe.

Had a good time watching this. Nice job!

Nice visuals and colors, catchy although somewhat repetitive tune. I like it!

WOW! I'm really impressed by this demo! (also: Onslaught on PC!!)
Great code, very nice colors and graphics and cool music!

drift your tunnels (especially the first one) are very nice! :D

(and thank for the greeting! :'3)

Oldschool spaceflight in a new dress. I am most happy to see you guys having worked out this demo just fine. Also i am very happy that this is a dub/wub free zone. A very enjoyable ride from start to end. You guys did a good job here that will hopefully lead into more fruitful cooperations in 2015. :)

Whereas I made a 2001 demo in 2014, here's a 1996 demo in 2014, with some more or less generic raymarching scenes replacing what used to be fancy bitmap effects. It's bold, it seems to copy that certain tunnel-through-deformed-grid thing Rez likes to do, so here's my thumb.

Refine, and then more please.

The 2D graphics certainly carry a large portion.

I can't help it. For me there is no real connection between the music and the visuals. But I give a thumb up for the visuals alone.

Oh, really nice music (although mixing is way off and some sounds alias), very good scenes although bit disjointed from each other, but nice colors. I like it, smooth atmo.

rocks ! the fact to put gfx as old school demos ( pleas accept this sentence, of course it isn't old school but gfx are rare in new school demos) makes me happy ! going to see more products with cool 2d gfx too ? would be so fine ! thumb up for me

That was a really exciting demo :) Very polished, beautiful effects, i like the tunnel in the beginning most and quite some melodic fitting music!

Very well done :)

Btw. music link anyone?
rulez added on the 2014-11-18 15:33:33 by Sapphire Sapphire
Thanks for all the kind comments. It was definitely meant to capture the feeling of an old 1990's megademo, which suited the theme of the party.
Hope to get a more final version to release this weekend.

This had some things I don't usually care about (the grey cube!) but the consistent style and relaxed atmosphere make me just sit back and enjoy it. Even the fractals looked interesting!

It meanders between great and average, but overall a good demo. First tunnel part is too long and music could use more variation.
Thumb is for the cube + fractal landscape part. That one was nice.

Nice synth-pr0n tune, not quite fitting the visuals though.

Hello, Onslaught. I really liked your demoscene. Here are my opinions, which will help in the future, if you will read my comment at all.
+ Beautiful graphics, like a movie, this, I probably last saw only Hurtquake
+ Very good sound (thanks for the link on Bandcamp)
+ Qualitatively packed. On my GTX 650 and AMD FX 6300 is to run without lag.
+ Special thanks for the category Greetings and credits at the end
- Menu resolution could have been done a little better, auto-rendering with autoedjust resulution of monitor.
Congratulations to the first place on the Syntax!

I love (good) 2D graphics in demos, thanks for that! Some effects are nice as well, but it all looks a bit random. Still, thumb up!
rulez added on the 2014-12-12 20:48:39 by Kylearan Kylearan
Pleasant, polished and colorful all the way, goes for the music and 2D graphics as well, so obviously the style is coherent. No really awesome part, but good flow and I enjoyed the fractal landscape styling. At least until the dreaded, inevitable cube (which, let it be said, didn't annoy me as much as I thought it would).

Really rocks. I love that dusty space passage, just before singularity logo. And that 80's music is gorgeous. I would thumb up twice if I could.
