This is so wonderful! Audio & visuals hand in hand. Such an eye- and earcandy!

I couldn't feel my face for the entire weekend, cause I was with Poo.

We had so much fun doing this compo-within-a-compo with you muddyfugglers. And, we mutually managed not to start a fresh rematch in post-compo drunkentimes, so we're not even in trouble with groupmates!

Oh, yeah, the prod, you already know all my feedback :) Beautiful work!!

PS - Yes, definitely we'll do again some time(s) :) And then we can collab on a nice intropack with 'em all in!

@Fell: Haha, yes, that was an awesome challenge! We had a lot of fun doing this :) I'm definitely interested in doing this again :P

the terrain is brilliant, the Haribo-hot air balloon a bit less so, but hey, it's a 4k ;)

Super nice instruments, I have to give Clinkster a proper shot :). I'd like to say "nice terrain" but... it's really not that nice. The geometry is fine but there's a LOT more to improve in the shading department. I do like the ambition though, not trivial to pull this off in 4k. I also like the birds as a detail.

It's not Clinkster. You'd struggle to create drums/percussion as those in this intro with Clinkster, I'm sure. It's actually the new synth that was put together to make the soundtrack for Nexus 8 possible. It's called Oidos (spanish for ears, I'm told) and I'm pretty sure it'll be released for everyone to use when Blueberry decides it's time and it's as optimized as can be.

The track for this intro consists of 5 instruments. The boomy drum in the start. A timpani/kettledrum type of instrument. A metallic hihat with long attack. The strings instrument. The last instrument is the one used for tbe burner blast as the balloon lights up.

As soon as the synth is released, I'll make sure all the tracks I've made with it and of course all the instruments, are handed to Blueberry so he can add examples and a small collection of 30-50 instruments along with the synth

The fire sound is a zest of the intro!

Punqtured: Aaahhh very cool! Indeed that was a bit of a hasty assumption on my part. Lovely physical modelling (at least partially) then I presume

I love these compos-within-compos, and despite I'm not sold on the terrain the overall prod is really nice. Winner!

What others said about the terrain looking not that good. But still a super nice 4k which I really enjoyed! :)

Somehow the terrain looks extremely convincing for a 4k. There's some raymarching artifacts with the 'trees' but that's not a big thing.

the music ruined the experience for me, sorry.

I *love* the landscape and the chalk cliffs. Reminds me of my own trip to southern England three years ago. Sure, the rendering isn't perfect, but it's a 4k FFS.

I like the rolling hills. The new synth sounds interesting too.

Thumb up for the whole concept and especially the birds and the ballon fire sound :-)

But... the other intro had "fire" !
This one wins with better music and photorealistic touch.

Moreover, I also really like the concept of themed challenge. Maybe there should be a separate compo for it, say every year different "theme" (ala Ludum Dare) for small intros, so even more people can participate (besides the usual free-style compo of course).

Somehow the beginning reminded me of some "braveheartish" thing, but then the balloon came up. All in all very nice for a 4K and the drum is awesome

Nice and i like the "orchestral" music, quite refreshing actually.

Really cool visuals for the size, fresh take on terrain from the usual perlin heightmaps which are usually seen.

Really loved this, my personal favourite of the 4k compo.

the nice shading and the details suffer a bit from the artifacts... also what noby said. balloon sound was a nice touch :)

I don't like the shading of the landscape, but else than that this is pretty damn great!

faster CPU, works now
beautiful :D
