pretty nice and fast-moving demo, packed with modern design fetishes (the moving arrows, pastel gradient backgrounds, flat 3d, etc etc..)
very lacking in effects/synch department tho, and the music is energetic but kinda dull. still, I'll thumb it up 'cause it's these guys' most finished work to date and it's not boring.

Cheesy design and some ugly colors here and there, but the music is something and the demo has a nice feeling. Thumb up.

Hmm... I downloaded the file twice with both Opera and IE but Winzip keeps saying it's not a valid archive...

Overall nice demo, good design & sound

even if that world was for sale i doubt anyone would buy it.

music good, otherwise it looked like a very old software rendered demo.

oh man, is yomam.ru hooked up on an isdn connection or what's up with that 8kb/s ?!
2Macaw: Yes :( We have 64kbps outgoing speed :( And this time many people try to download the demo. So, download speed is very low :(

I really liked the look of it all. Nothing particularly funky in the fx-department, but it looked sexy!

pretty cool new school demo with coherent design and a well done tune.

Thank you guys :) After Itami we thought, that you hate us, but you don't :) thank you. SAW wasn't our serious demo. We stopped two our main projects to make this demo. Now we'll do them. May be at ASM, may be at Paradox2k2. Anyway they will be much better :) Stay with us...

It was coherent, the color theme was nice but not too over-used, music was quite nice. I can't remember seeing windmills in demos before so it was nice too. Btw, I first tried choosing DirectX (because ATI Rage isn't that great with OpenGL), but I got a Fatal Error 0x0 or something - couldn't see the whole error message box.

fantastic. greatest experience since a long time.
if this was only a side-project, i am .really. looking forward to your next demos.

Nice strong, technologically-transparent design, the motion in the "2D" scenes is especially well done. And some nice touches between unzipping the archive and the first scene too ;)

smooth, cool, and not boring, for a change.
kinda like a flash animation with nice stylish flat 3D (not cubes ;D)
and the setup screen is nice too

thumbs up!

thumbs up for the kewl text-fx and the music. simplish effects just doing what effects are supposed to do: look good.
rulez added on the 2002-05-28 18:41:49 by Spin Spin
Yes, yes, yes. I really like the pace at which it all goes. All the "flashy" text transitions and effects really kick, the 3D is minimal, but consistent and good, and I had to grin a bit when the Kasparov allusion came. Only the music is far too dull for my taste.

Still, I'm also looking forward to your future. All great things to come :)

Good demonstration of how small details used effective can make a demo enjoyable to watch.
rulez added on the 2002-05-28 22:25:56 by Wain Wain
fresh style, and dynamic... Love it

the small design-gfx-animations are cool!
rulez added on the 2002-05-29 00:30:21 by cp_ cp_
simple effects, but used perfectly.
typography rocks and makes this soo much more alive.
music was ok, size was a downside. but who cares.
rulez added on the 2002-05-29 01:17:35 by ryg ryg
this prod is slightly buggy, but very much forgivable due to the actual content.
I love the music, very simple, yet effective when coupled with the code.
A step in the new direction. :-D

Pure newschool design. Ending gets a little Kasparovy. These guys have a future in the detroit/house-dj album cover industry. :)

Very nice, i love the timeline of the words things. Lovely color-schemes, original use of 3D, a wind of change in the world of demoscene. Rulez big time !

Oh. Thanks a lot to all of you. 2phoenix: Detroit. Hm, now we create Detroit318 demo :) You can found a trailer at pouet. There is only one scene, but it shows the mood of the future demo. It will be in differnt style from So abstract world, but It will be much better. Believe me :)
added on the 2002-05-29 12:17:42 by night_ night_
impressive syncronisation and design. Neat soundtrack, it fits the style. Im atleast looking forward to see your next demo. Keep up this good work!

i don't get all the craze. it gots a good flow, very reminiscent of commercials or something similar + got clicheish elements ...
added on the 2002-05-29 21:58:01 by _-_-__ _-_-__
great typography, that's very fresh.
i didn't like some of the cameramovements and objects, as well as the choice of colours sometimes. the music could be improved.
added on the 2002-05-30 14:33:58 by robotriot robotriot
everything was pretty much 'ok'. animated texts were great but overall ugliness bothered at some points.
added on the 2002-05-30 16:31:40 by raymon raymon
This looks like something that could be ripped from Eurosport or something (the music, at least, and some of the text effects) -- the beginning and end is cool, but the middle of the demo fails to make me go nuts. That, and the color scheme (flatshaded grey vs. cyan/blue) isn't really that pretty. But overall, it's not a bad demo at all. :-)

nice synchro, cheesy 3d tho

I just have a thing for stuff shaking and flickering nervously, so I loved the text effects -> I loved this demo although I think the 3d itself was ugly and boring and whatnot. Another thing is that this demo has very coherent design and all the parts follow the same theme (text effects).

Finally got to see this one.

The text fx and syncs are great, colours are quite very cheesy, music doesn't really fit the demo itself but is quite good and the 3d only parts seem quite out of place.

a pig, almost a rulez.

the screenshot looked great. but i was a bit dissapointed. :/

naah.. doesnt look fresh, although at places it felt really good. muzik doesnt fit well and syncing should've been much better.

Shame on me, no thumb from me yet ? This is way cool demo, I like those text animations and music. Rulez!
rulez added on the 2008-01-12 17:15:41 by Trauma Zero Trauma Zero
I don't like. Even for 2003 this is mediocre, sometimes even ugly. The text stuff is cool though and the music okish...

Minimalistic yet smooth and nice colors.

Extremely strong first half, a lot more lackluster second one. The motion-graphics-typography stuff is some of the best I've ever seen in a demo. Very strong desing overall, that's what this stumb is for.

love the 2d stuff
