Based on the readme this is a rushed party version and you're probably aware of the overdone shaking and chaos, soo... final? :)

Nice one.

best stampfer sync i've seen, i'd love to see more of that. the cam shake is too strong for the shots that only show small-scale detail because any connection between frames gets lost in chaos: needs more big contrasty things to anchor the eye. really fun release with great music and... I think that still has a lot of potential in that direction. If I imagine the same level of polish from some your more atmospheric demos applied to something like this... omg.

A hell of a trip.. music absolutely took me while watching it via stream for the first time... nailed.

yeah quite some messy bits that require polishing, but i quite liked it!

I think I might need a YouTube reference capture because I'm not entirely sure this ran correctly.

Nice demo.. seen it on the stream and on my i5 pc. (ran a bit slow ;)
I remember seeing Baudsurfer in the credits in the demo..
Cant find him in the NFO.. or maybe i am mistaken?

Watched this at the party. Absolute greatness! Really-really enjoyed it, super epic.

In fact I thought that this kind of world could easily inspire a novel about a weird mechanical world.

the music starts to good but then it becomes a horrible mess imho. the lovely visuals + fast pacing save it from thumbs down. another prod ruined by music.
Super awesome production! Agree to sensenstahl here with the difference that i love the music as well =)

In addition, the "RSI2" cameo feature is hilarious :D After realizing i really laughed hard :D

Supercool journey with a forceful stately soundtrack. I liked the stomping scene most. Bully!

Over-the-top postfx, but nice otherwise. Especially liked the scene with the camera following the flare particle thingy.

I love it when Still does something more bombastic :). Honestly though, some of the scenes are a visual mess, but luckily there's plenty of eyecandy to compensate. I dig the tune as well.

Trendwhore 2. I'm a bit torn, some of the effects look spectacular as they should, chiefly the very first one as well as the other more abstract ones. The rest is hit or miss and especially the 3d model stuff falls to the latter category. I guess it in part the rendering which looks quite flat but even more importantly the color grading... tinted blacks just don't look good unless they're done just right :). Still liked it though, motion blur instantly doubles your credibility! Enjoyable gloomy (heh) track too. Solid midrange stuff.

Okay so now watching the Youtube version it did unfortunately run correctly, it's just that this demo is a mess.
added on the 2016-10-08 00:27:30 by Gargaj Gargaj
Good to see a change of pace for Still, bit of power, energy and punch. It's a shame some of the shakeyness gets a little much but the rest is really good. It also seems that 2016 is the year for putting Gabba kicks in DnB tracks!

Overall quite messy but that seems intended. Some scenes were not my cup of tea, but all in all a clear thumb (also for including a whole drama story in the demo)

a few good effects, but didnt really do the trick for me at all.

music was crap; the camera shake effect just reminded me of a dnb demo we did nearly 15 years ago; effects just didn't hold together nicely.

i guess it's ok for a rush party prod, but meh, you can do much better.
added on the 2016-10-11 03:26:21 by psenough psenough
Music holds it up together. Texter also deserves a thumb.

The first 40 seconds were pure bliss.
rulez added on the 2016-10-11 13:13:44 by Preacher Preacher
This really felt like it had no idea or vision behind it. Kinda like you were forced to make a demo, and didn't really enjoy making it.

Don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all. It's just not particularly good either in my eyes.
added on the 2016-10-12 12:39:42 by kusma kusma
Thanks for the ride.

You can make better, but still a good demo worthy thumb up.
rulez added on the 2016-10-12 15:25:29 by jack-3d jack-3d
@kusma: It's probably not the most innovative or consistent demo on the planet. But we sure had a lot of fun making it.

Thanks again to gloom. We pushed his flexibility quite a bit. But I personally love the track.

I know that the party-version was very rough. So we spend a little bit of time fixing the worst glitches in final version. The youtube-link has also been updated.

Final was a big improvement. Still quite messy and all over the place but now there's something to it I find endearing! Not sure what but here's your thumb and thanks for the ride :)
rulez added on the 2016-10-12 23:04:31 by ferris ferris
Wow, the final is eben better then the party version! In your face track and visuals! Reminds me of certain outracks demos and conspiracy intros, but keeps that still style! <3
My favourite scene is the ships scene, with the horns (?) kicking in, awww!

So so. Didn't like its music.

Amazing soundtrack! Visuals are a bit messy, but really cool a some points :)
rulez added on the 2016-10-15 08:32:31 by maytz maytz
Nice camera work in the ships scene. Otherwise, hardest greetings to read to date.

The inclusion of the logs in the zip is a funny peak into Pixtur's creation world. :)

Wow, the final version is a big improvement over the party version.

I'm slightly put off by the orange and teal color scheme popular in recent movies, though.

[v] Tune is surprisngly listenable for me, not so cliche for the stampfer-type
[v] Scenes: hammer-scene is memorable, there are some neat concepts with trains/flying sail-boats, other scenes feels a little bit like fillers, but at least you don't repeat so much like Conspiracy does ;-P
[v] FX: you surely went wild on this one, and it makes a lot of sense here

Finally, it feels more like a fun-prod that makes audience happy, and in fact, I really doubt you were aiming anywhere near "masterpiece" level, but it's still cream of the crop.

My poor machine experienced some slowdowns at scene switches, other than that; this production was above medium to me! Keep em coming!

Visuals can't quite keep up with the massive soundtrack, but STILL nice.

guys, i believe you were close to something really really awesome, both design-wise and regarding atmosphere. but sadly the chaotic scenes are way too dominant and long for my taste.

Next time more of those stampfers, trains and tentacles please!
