Some of the parts look quite a bit unfinished but Hoffman's track is so awesome that I can easily ignore that! :)

I enjoyed this! Great music, some excellent color palettes [I might steal some of them for my own prods ;)], great graphics and interesting effects. Only "twisty twister" should have some more twists I think (hah!) as we have seen "normal" twisters way too often now. Oh, another thing, since the code needs and uses the FPU you should add some kind of system-check as the demo crashes with a big "boom bang" on Non-FPU systems which is not that nice of course.

Other than that: Fine demo! :)

well deserved 1st place! ;P

I got a bit too close to the deadline, so there is indeed lacking some finishing touches (like FPU check). The twister-routine can actually do a lot more than just basic twisting, but I didn't have the time to utilize that - It will show up in a demo in the future instead :)

This is my first demo coded using WinUAE, so I was a bit worried about performance when watching it on the bigscreen, but luckily I didn't make too many coding blunders in the innerloops.

Bonus Info: Daytripper (from "Professional Tracker" fame) did the MC'ing + lyrics and I stole some look-up tables (made by farfar) from an earlier FD demo.

Cool stuff here. Some out of the box-thinking with the effects as well, which is definitely nice.

nice zoomers, twister, and overall flow demo.
and cool soundtrack!

Can we just have a moment of commiseration for an obviously capable lyricist who had to work with these absurd names and circumstances? :)

The Soundtrack is supermassive of course!
The Effects are fine (although i think i have seen them in a previous release already?!) and wellcoded for sure, but didn´t fit the soundtrack, which asked for massive effect-bombing with fast movements and lots of sync!
So all in all this feels a bit disconnected sadly, still very good!
I think the Twister turned me off the most...while i love twisters! But too much black on the screen and not enough movement to accompany the music, also why only half the screen?!

hardy, the twisters are basically not really done - I had to sacrifice something to meet the deadline :)

.. but this means I can use them in another demo! :D
added on the 2017-02-16 13:39:39 by leb00ster leb00ster
Yes, the twisters reminded me of a certain "fade from white" ;)
Overall, this demo is a proof-positive of how much you can achieve with proper sync and audio.

Big tune! From now on every demo group should have their own MC! Fx are also quite nice. Yet another demo featuring Malmix, the pixel machine!

<rant>
There must be music communities, 3d communities, pixel communities out there separate from the demo scene which represent a gold mine of content ready for demo usage.

However for Amiga content it is too embarrassing to ask because content will be degraded to noisy 8-bit, 256 color (or less!) low resolution graphics and objects with no more than ~1000 faces featuring only 1 texture please! ... and the texture has to be an envmap!

The tune made my day. Shame there wasn't any competition though.

Twister is what I reacted to also ;P Deadlines suck. Looks slick but doesn't impress, seems in search of a theme or idea. Music is well-made, but not my cup.

BOOOSTA! again on Amiga board ;) Perhaps it looks a bit unfinished but the music is stunning. I like the synchro too.

Super music+effects+synchro+graphics...
...together = Best demo from the party and only one AGA !

some effects from early Focus Design demos ?:) but this soundtrack! Massive!

Thumb up for the massive tune!

Nothing groundbreaking, but solid mixture of awesome music, cool fx and nice effects + sync

Good tune ("wobbbawauwab"), but a bit short and unfinished.

You should use the classic demo music style rather. I dont like the music.
added on the 2017-03-15 02:14:39 by rock rock
you want them to use 'classic' style, but your handle is 'rock'

MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!!

Finally made my sceneID, just to drop a line to say this demo has become my all time favorite Amiga Demo, the music is brilliant, my god Hoffman is the man, i grabbed the mp3 from soundcloud too, and yeah the code fits the music really well. I always look forward to Focus Design demos more than any other group.

Not a big fond of the visuals (too unpolished and kinda half-baked for me), but the soundtrack is awesome. Probably my fave tune from Hoffman ever; dope funky dub jamz that remind me of The Egg.
