Weird but very good production :)

While there are obvious issues with execution, this demo provided more fascinating and wtf moments than the rest of the compo combined, and it kept me glued to the screen for the entire duration. If that's not worth a thumb up I don't know what is :)

Exactly what break said.

This demo gives me autonomous sensory meridian response. It`s wonderful.

Trippy awesomeness! Fantastic voyage.

Erk & Gwen did an amazing work (my limited contribution was to provided a mesh of the astronaut, they did everything else)!
Very technical, totally trippy & freestyle.
The sound work is awesome.

And, by the way, it deserved a better place! Come on, 6th? What injustice.

Seriously, wtf. I still have to see the rest of the releases, but this wins my personal party.

Unexpected and really good :)

What break said, except there were so many troublesome passage I can't thumb it up. There's an awful cognitive dissonance going on when you suddenly transition from wonderful psychedelic ambiance to cheesy four-to-the-floor. With that said, there are some genius moments here, in particular the water surface pass-through in the middle. I'm not sure if sixth place is entirely justified, but I'm pretty sure I can find at least five other demos from the compo I liked more.

I'm actually really annoyed because I want to like this, a lot, but I just can't... In any case it's good to see people making creative stuff like this.
added on the 2015-04-06 15:34:20 by noby noby
Should have placed higher. A lot of good moments in this one.

Thanks a lot for positives comments. Revision 2015 was a nice moment.

This trip was very enjoyable! Even got a personal message/insight from that. What makes it a good trip then :D Could have been ranked somewhat higher in my opinion
rulez added on the 2015-04-06 21:07:54 by HellMood HellMood
yeah, what a trip. this demo has a quite modern appeal somehow.
maybe it’s the mash-up/trash aesthetics i like in this one. the part with the guitar was really nice! should have ranked higher.
rulez added on the 2015-04-06 21:26:32 by a-move a-move
really like this one, ok I have no clue what the storyline is, but there are several really cool parts in it. Music is superb, nice instruments and overall very fitting. The part with the water fx and the part after leaving the city were really epic. the music in the greetings/fractal part is so lovely. great stuff, thanks for the trip

When that plane appeared at around 06.00, it started to get odd.
Did liked the ending though, maybe it did make sense?
I'll have to rewatch this a couple of times to form a conclusion.

Very trippy, I enjoyed it.

Seriously, this is an awesome demo and it should have ranked higher. Very nice "interstellar+inner trip" with good technical effects and transitions. The only think that could be improved is the "design/colors". Bravo Mankind !!!

A demo yearning for epic assets and a thundering crescendo, but this is a very budget-friendly way of doing this grand concept and it's not quite as good as it could be.
added on the 2015-04-07 12:53:17 by tomaes tomaes
I found the open-world (scene with futuristic buildings) pretty interesting !! both technically and aesthetically.

Secret key : Hit "b" during the city part to see the generated groundmap. Based on a slice of Mandelbox ;)
added on the 2015-04-07 15:11:22 by erk erk
Have watched it again ... and I have to say it's even better than I remembered it. The changing music, the flow, the transitions, the colors. Everything fits perfect together. Hats off!
added on the 2015-04-07 18:07:57 by gaspode gaspode
Trippy! And great music to tie it together. Strangely enjoyable.

Well, I did watch it all the way through, which is more than I can say for a lot of demos, but OMG - what did I watch?

On the minus side, it's a bit too much wtf for my tastes and the execution lacks sometimes.

Apart from that, what a trip!
Kept me captivated all way long.
Also, I really like the music/sound work.
rulez added on the 2015-04-15 23:43:32 by wullon wullon
Super nice demo which ranked way too low! I'm going to rewatch this quite often, great parts (totally love the city part), nice and very fitting music and some really nice ideas. Good to see Mankind back! :)

As soon as the traveller took a dive along the chakras of the "goddess" I knew I was in for a ride :)
Beautiful ending scene with the coagulation of the polar archetypes; no complaints from the alchemical point of view :D
rulez added on the 2015-04-16 08:16:30 by d0DgE d0DgE
Yeah Dodge, i think you can see that ride as an introspection : the cosmonaute is flying throught his inner world. Thumb up for your point of view Dodge !
added on the 2015-04-16 08:31:31 by erk erk
I really liked this one on the big screen but I was also frustrated, constantly switching from "wow!" to "ugly" as the demo went on. You were not far from creating a milestone demo, maybe you lacked some time.
Thumb up for creativity, for the concept, and the amazing quality of some parts.

This was my favorite from the compo, it may not be as polished as the other entries, but i liked the variety of ideas.
rulez added on the 2015-04-18 13:37:31 by reptile reptile
What Soundy said. The mix of good-looking followed by unpolished, ugly-looking scenes frustrates me deeply. This could have been sooo good!
rulez added on the 2015-04-19 20:56:48 by Kylearan Kylearan
Really ambitious! The ocean surface transition, the goddess with orbiting planets and the fractal rocket tail delighted me but as a whole this didn't work at all.

The sequel will be amazing!
added on the 2015-04-28 21:36:27 by cce cce
psychadelic, trippy and entertaining
rulez added on the 2015-05-03 21:57:19 by seppjo seppjo
The first half is pretty ugly. The fractal rocket tail was very pretty and the second half saves it from a thumb-down.

Loved watching this and downloaded the demo.
Oh dear.
It runs in widescreen instead of full screen.
Anyone know how to solve this?
(Running on 1080P here.)
rulez added on the 2015-05-13 22:16:42 by PonyFox PonyFox
@ PonyFox: To open fullscreen monitor, i use the GLFW function glfwGetPrimaryMonitor(); which usually returns a fullscreen mode.
Perhaps your primary monitor is in widescreen ? Did ya change any preference in your system about that ?

amazing style, simple, kitsch yet still to the point and following the audio flow perfectly. Bit lengthy though.
Should have ranked higher.
