By far the best poo-brain demo so far and I'm really happy to see the poo-brain quality we know from pb-01 and pb-02 to be back.
Absolutely lovely design and execution.

I appreciate aiming for higher quality but there's problems, which I can't assume to stem from lack of time because there's a ton of content.
- Animation is seriously dodgy although it's barely visible so it doesn't ruin much, plus I suppose it goes well with the art-style.
- What doesn't go well with the artstyle is the DOF, even if you were trying to make the whole thing feel like a miniature - in which case a skybox would've worked better.
- The transition idea is cute but at the same time incredibly Z-fight-prone.
- Music is nice but the demo seems to refuse to acknowledge that it exists, it's just "there".
The whole thing feels it's in a rush to take all of the content and quickly go through it as soon as possible without giving the chance to enjoy the detail. Making a 5 minute demo is not a crime if you have the resources to do it. The finale suffers the most from this because I'm sure there was a story or moral you were trying to reach with this but now as it is, it's just "and then something happened! End."

Some obvious problems (popup, clipping, animation isn't that great, what Gargaj said) but I just can't not thumb this up, it just looks and feels too lovely!

Lovely stuff overall, should've won the compo.

Thanks (a lot!!) for all the great comments :)

I uploaded & recorded a new version, though sadly it only really fixes the spelling of DARKLITE (real sorry 'bout that guys).

@Gargaj I'd like to say, you have a list of points that we had as well :) We indeed had trouble telling a story & integrating the music, sadly those are not 'polish' problems, but rather core things that make you re-do all camera work & animation in your demo, which we really didn't have time for! I hope we can do those things better some day!
great artwork, but the soundtrack is just terrible. shouldve ranked higher!

It's kinda cute back lacks the proper "something" for me. Not exactly fond of the music either.

feels unfinished indeed... but still a thumb for great concept and style.

I just need to say RoccoWs track in this is so awesome!
Can't stop listening :)

+It so cute! I love the atmosphere. I smiled when I saw those bison didn't had any walk cycle at all, stuff like that makes me happy :)
+Someone pointed out the roadsigns were greets but I guess I missed the every time. I'll search harder.
+The music is awesome, it really has a 'searching for adventure'-kinda vibe. Also it is not pretentious at all, so it fits the demo nicely. RoccoW always +1
+I really like the concept and the execution. Yes the execution could have been better at some transitions but overall it was very solid.

-Just a tip: The whole demo revolves around those little man carrying those battery-thingies, but I had to watch it till the end to see it wasn't the other way around. I thought the batteries where the man and the man were mules of some sort. If you took more time in the beginning to keep those 'batteries' or whatever you call them and the man in the frame, I'm sure the whole demo would have made a lot more sense. But yeah: deadlines.

Thanks for the ride, and good to see something else besides puking horses and/or lasers. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with either of them, but I guess this one has a higher replay value.

A bit unpolished but nice style!

Pointing towards the right direction. I agree with anyone here, that the artstyle hit a new point of quality. What is absolutely missing, is a nice unveiling of storyline.

Stick to this stuff!

The cuteness. Some nice scene.-modelling here. Colorful, playful. HODOR (was that his name!?). Music feels disconnected for me.

A few arguments had been raised (e.g. by Gargaj) and I cannot state those are not valid. But what I can tell, it was totally working for me during the compo, and it's still working, so very big thumb up! It amazed me!

It's so good. Style, colors, pacing. I love it.

But as many already wrote. I totally didn't get the story.
Maybe telling the story using subtitles or "speech bubbles" like in role playing games would have done trick and could have been realized quite fast.

Or hire a narrator and let him talk over it... also very fast... but finding one is a little hurdle...

Either way. Excellent work! Keep it up!

nice style!
still got to watch the final, so my thumb will follow at a later point of time!
loved it.

Very nice music and all in all very pleasant to watch! Reminds me of my childhood when I used to "build worlds" with Playmobil characters! Lovely!

Absolutely lovely and cute, and I like the story too. I can see that lots of work went into the individual scenes, and they're all so nice and different and imaginative <3 The transitions felt really jerky and unfinished though, which is a real shame given the otherwise high quality.

But that's just nitpicking on an otherwise wonderful production -- keep it up!
