Great zoom ... especially the greetings tricked my brain.

Terve! Happy you guys won! Great quality demo!

But can you do it again? ;)

Okay my bad, the official scene.org upload is broken but this new one seems to work - and by golly this is un-pretty in every sense of the word :|

Maybe showing something interesting is more win-worthy than being super-polished-boring-gray.

Great track and trippy flow, with a few seams that didn't bother me much because the whole presentation has that unique Adapt style. Deserving Winner!

Zooming credits were the best part. Other scenes felt unbalanced sometimes.

Visuals are messy, and there was really not that much interesting stuff. I'm very surprised this won!

So my favourite demo actually won for once? That doesn't usually happen.

some really nice stuff but too messy for my tastes

The typical Adapt style again borders on messy and confusing, but holds together quite nicely in this one. Not every scene works, but the best ones were pretty great. Lovely soundtrack as well. And in 2017, when black & white is the new hypnoglow, it was nice to see at least some colour on the screen :P

impressive how you kept a continuous zoom feeling fresh and interesting the whole way, really enjoyed it

Nice flow from start to finish, but the greetings part was pretty triggering to watch.

Some scenes are a bit empty. Otherwise great :-) Congrats on winning!

probably the most "demostyle" demo in the compo, bit messy but still done well.

Great feels, music and beautiful zooming. The ending was a bit rushed, but a clear winner in my mind still.

This one got my vote. Zooming parts were indeed something fresh and I liked the style as well

The zooming concept is old but super fun.

The zoom effext in liquiXion was cool, so why not make it a central theme in a new demo? Best of compo.

Liked the general just keep zooming idea although it, but couldn't there have been nicer things to zoom into and what's with the randomness to those reflections.

Very good soundtrack but the trick became boring rather soon. Also the whole scroller/greetings part is a big no.

Extreme endless zoomer in a party trance world!

I approve.

Nicely spatial feeling, at times it felt like flying at the compo. Have to point a critical finger toward those unpolished triangle worms or whatever that just pile up there toward the end.
rulez added on the 2017-08-07 10:10:42 by Marq Marq
Of all the zooms in the demo I liked the cubes+light spheres -one most.

The bestest Adapt. Love love love. And I loved the greetings scene even if the font could have maybe been worth a second though :)
rulez added on the 2017-08-07 13:22:22 by Preacher Preacher
I'm a bit lost on this one. Some parts was very nice - loved the particles!!!. The zoom-in concept didn't work very well - toppled with a lot of AA artifacts. This kinda ruined what I thought was a cool soundtrack, some very nice particle effects and an overall good colorscheme...
added on the 2017-08-07 13:38:14 by quisten quisten
i like the concept of a modern endless zoomer a lot but some of the scenes and/or the postproc werent that pretty to look at.
but its fresh and I found the tune to be fitting and well done, so thumb away!

Like the soundtrack and the idea of the endless zoomer, but it looks quite unpolished. (especially compared to the release from fairlight/cncd)

Okay, so the zoomer was a cool idea, but the rest felt like a ball of random wrapped in rendering artifacts and ugly.

Too messy overall, but some nice scenes. My favorite was the glowing balls in the water. Decent music.

If Adapt have taken their best scenes from each of their demos and composed it in a more coherent style they would have ruled. A piggie.
added on the 2017-08-07 22:22:56 by Zplex Zplex
Cool tune and I thought demo was pretty cool too.
rulez added on the 2017-08-08 00:14:31 by djh0ffman djh0ffman
Echoing the comments from before, definitely random. Some alright bits but everything is just thrown together with a soundtrack added in. Stuff flows together, so it's not for lack of transitions. Just as a whole it's a bunch of "OK, we're doing this now" scenes. Sorry. :-/
It's about time someone made a zoomer

I can see the good stuff, but it just left me cold :/

The first demo in the compo that really blew me away. Along with Reflexion (2013) this really is the best Adapt demo, and your ultimate thesis along with it. The transition from the intro to the zoomer is one of the most sublime moments I've ever seen in a contemporary PC demo. It's not perfect but as always that would be just boring, wouldn't it? Now only if you could solve those aliasing issues, specular and otherwise :)

Ugly indeed.

Awesome visuals and sound but the camera paths and some animations would have needed a bit more polishing.

Like a visual Shepard tone gone haywire. A good example how execution details don't matter when the audience loves the concept.

What a mess. Didn't like the music.

a bit rough around the edges (both literally and figuratively) but very enjoyable on every level.

This is an interesting approach but it is visually so-so. Too messy with strange transitions which just don't make any sense. Also I really try to but I can't feel the zooming, there is too much randomness. Even a fractal zoomer is more "zoomin" like that. I don't understand why it won.
added on the 2017-08-08 23:48:11 by neoman neoman
btw is your mesh generator like that on purpose or is it a bug :D
added on the 2017-08-09 00:02:43 by msqrt msqrt
Has a couple of pretty cool scenes, but most of it I thought was rather forgettable and generally not very pleasant to look at. However, among the top contenders probably the least niche.

A bit messy at times but enough good looking parts make up for that, the greetings look particularly nice. Music is pretty cool too!

Hmmm... meh. It's a nice concept but I just can't get over that combination of "aliases like hell" and the far too low res ground map.

Kudos for doing something different, feels right and consistent to me. I also like the ever-evolving soundtrack, gives it that very demo-ish touch.
rulez added on the 2017-08-11 14:24:39 by rp rp
Hm. I like the idea, and the greetings part is really nice - but overall, the demo just doesn't look very good. Scene composition, colors and direction are not my cup to tea. Piggy.

hamfisted direction but very beautiful effects
rulez added on the 2017-09-16 03:49:40 by beefheid beefheid
The saving grace is the zooming effect, which is done to perfection. But, sorry to say, the rest is rather ugly, and there is very little sense of depth cues, due to misuse of shadows and vanishing lines in almost every scene. The music is very forgettable.
Basically an average demo from 2005 that will be remembered for the zoom mechanics.
