Oh, this wasn't bad at all! Lovely rendering (I especially appreciate the blurriness to get rid of aliasing), the kind of stuff you'd expect every demo to have in lord's year 2016, but alas this is above par. Contentwise not too much worth reminiscing about, but a couple effects stood out at least such as the one on the screen shot and metaball stuff with the fake subsurface scattering, simple but good looking. Can't fault the colors too much either, though I did spot some channel clipping and the overall palette is a bit too cheesy cross-process looking for my taste. The music was about as forgettable as you can go but luckily didn't manage to ruin the show. Now I wan't another one!

yep - yt doesn't work - but demo was really good, cool soundtrack and good effects (coders debut - worth to mention imo)

Youtube is working guys! Sorry for that problem :)
Definitely best demo from Riverwash. Music is awesome and suits the overall feel, great colours and design. Although it is not the best demo I've ever seen considering effects, the overall impression is really nice.

first snare of every fourth bars was annoyingly buried.
mistake or just strange decision?! which ever it was it ruined the track for me.
nice colours.

decent comeback demo from a group that did quite nice 64ks back in the early 2000s :)

Nice visuals, shame the music sounds like it was added last minute.

Nice demo

Great moments in this, especially the part with the astronaut helmet and the following crystals. And I'm always a sucker for glowy liquidy stuff when done cleanly so those metaballs looked nice.

You can feel the quality in this demo. Has it's very cool parts..
But than some basic feelings interupts.. (like the standard greetings scroll)
But all in all a worthy winner and a great comeback!
Keep em coming.. and thanx for the greetz!

great =) like the DnB tune and the shiny crystals

great stuff, I especially liked the metaballs and the glowing ball inside the see-through object thing.. music was maybe a tad generic, but the visual style tied it all nicely together. Will watch again :)

Really nice track (awesome so to say).. And splendid visuals!

@citrus: we have our own framework with dx11 which was highly influenced by altona framework from farbrausch.

Well, I don't know. Thumb down for the disbalanced font type and the EXTREME blurryness (is this upscaled 640p?) Thumb up for motivation = Piggy

Very nifty rendering. Smooth too.

really nice visuals, not sure about the music. maybe a slower track would have been better..?

I love this very much, but I gotta agree with a-move, music was too busy for me to fit the lush visuals and color grading

Music was decent, if not unforgettable. Visuals were also decent. Enough for a thumb. Keep creating. :)

Demoish demo stuff, me likes!

It is a little too short and too simple for my taste as fully fledged demo.
added on the 2016-10-06 19:41:27 by moonshine moonshine
very classic demoish visual content, but done well. music was a bit generic. the scene in the screenshot stands out especially, love it.

Slick, but felt kinda empty and flat. It would probably be a lot better if you utilized the dof effect better (and added some fog).
