Poor animation and an uninteresting story.
Best part of it is actually the narrator

It's incredible how this kind of shit ended up in the 4th place. There were LOTS of better demos in the compo than this one...

Ugly. Narrator is the only good thing :)

Nice graphics, too bad it looks a bit unfinished.. but i give thumbs up for the DOF effect and the mighty hedgehog :)

Looks unfinished but this is a good idea and it's very original.

a nice animation, but where's the demo?

textures, motion & camera-angles, general idea - plain crappy. but yes, the narrator is good.

The best part is the silly narrator voice, yes. It's not good, but not bad either.

Didn't someone say once that the 4th place at asm is cursed?<g>

(nice narration anyway)

Brave attempt to chieve something different, Failed because of the poor visuals. Overrated.

If I am not wrong, the guys coding this sat together with tAAt, so they had a pretty strong backup when it came to voting, so I am not surprised it ended up at 4th place...
It really sucks, and it is ugly and it is lame and the narrator made me feel sick.

We didn't have time to complete this prod. Sad. Animations were quite crappy, done in big hurry. Maybe we finish it someday.

Big respect to Mik who did the engine. We just didn't have time to play enough with animated DOF, fur-systems and all the other cool stuff.

peggy, All tAAt-members have their own serious groups. tAAt is just a way for people to release joke-prods without getting their real-group dissed. So you can understand that all those 130 tAAt-members that contains big pile of the finnish scene won't vote just for one group. silly you..=)
added on the 2002-08-07 12:36:10 by Random- Random-
unfortunately, some idiot lamers like peggy have nothing better to do than go around dissing other people's work. Especially the accusation of vote-faking is just lame and stupid. Peggy, maybe you should concentrate on making your own demos instead of dissing others? Of course, it isn't as easy to grow your virtual dick-size with ACTUALLY making anything, but it doesn't make you seem like a dickless lamer.
added on the 2002-08-07 12:47:40 by mik mik
Not making anything huh? Wlell well seams like you know ALOT.... And I am just stating my opinion, and do you seriously mean that you don't vote on your friends demos? Or? I do really find this demo boring, as I found many of the demos on assm.... but hey, if you like this demo so much, why don't you thumb it up?
added on the 2002-08-07 12:51:39 by peggy peggy
well, i've only seen it on the asmtv stream, and i certainly know i hate these kinds of demos. besides, i experienced the same crash as macaw.

Peggy, as you might have noticed, this prod is unfinished, and we really had no motivation to run around the oldskool area advertising our production (we hadn't really got any sleep in the last 3 weeks, so we spent that time mostly sleeping anyways). And there were many other tAAt-members entrying demos there as well, so how come you aren't accusing them of votefaking? By a quick count, tAAt-members were involved in at least 3 of the top 4 demos. How come you aren't dissing those if you hate tAAt over everything?
added on the 2002-08-07 13:03:51 by mik mik
because thumbing up own prods is lame..;)
added on the 2002-08-07 13:05:19 by Random- Random-
I don't hate tAAt, It's just that they have never done anything that appeals me, except the totally awsome Stair dismount. And if you look at some of the other prods released on assm, you'll se that I am not the only one accusing them for votefaking....
added on the 2002-08-07 13:08:24 by peggy peggy
I think that the basic reason why tAAt is so high in the charts so often is that you can only vote 3 best prods. That means all the positions below top 2 or 3 are more or less random. Down there, it really comes down to which demos people really can remember. tAAt-demos are usually quite clear, contain some totally astronomical jokes, are generally not-so-serious but still are technically quite OK. For that reason, people tend to remember tAAt-prods. And that is the reason why they usually end up right below the top 3. But accusing Armada-demos of votefaking is just stupid.
added on the 2002-08-07 13:15:44 by mik mik
hmmm, btw, About that dissing of others work... take a look on my average thumb up and yours..... and you'll see that I like more demos than you (yeah =) and that I vote on the demos that appeals me (:P) ....
added on the 2002-08-07 13:25:13 by peggy peggy
About that dissing of others work...i generally don't even use thumbs up/down, so that reading is more or less random. At least I don't go around accusing other people of votefaking.

This demo DiamonDied on my computer. (re: crashed)
I can't understand what's wrong with the Assembly visitors. As I walked through the "main hall" at Asm'02 after the demo compo, I stopped behind one guy to check what demos he was voting. And somehow that stupid fuck voted this! And later I heard this had got the 4th place. This is pure crap, so what the fuck is going on at Assembly!?!

Yes, the animation is a bit crude, but this demo stands out as one of the few demos that has an actual storyline. For that, I give it a thumbs up.

Can't believe what got higher than demos like clone and 32 degrees. Nevertheless, I had a great laugh!

Cool idea...I just couldn't get over the fact that the cat looks like some sort of alien. We demand better visuals!
