Very first demoscene production from Slerpy. I would thumb it up big time if I weren´t involved. Keep it coming mate!

Your firstie blew away my firstie (mt first PC 4k that is...). Massive thumb

Extremely cool! So allow me to nitpick.. the depth of field is waaaay too shallow considering the lack of any depth discontinuity handling. Especially bothersome when watching realtime! Actually that is all, other than that this in all its simplicity is really really excellent. There's a lot of attention paid to all the important areas usually neglected in 4k intros: the space of the action, camera work, cutting, tension/release, etc.. It's conceptually uninventive but my counter for EPIC SCIFI OBJECT ESCAPE isn't quite saturated yet. Don't stop.

Really awesome considering this is your first demo. You've already beaten a lot of the old regulars.

I like it, but a bit too blurish for me.

If Virgill likes it... ;)

Always good to have new people enter the scene and be creative!

Now where the YT vid.. cant find it yet ;)

Crazy good for a firstie! This is a great 4k without taking that into account too.

Well visually it's a bit of an eyesore (DOF is not like glow that you can just splash all over and it makes everything nice), the music alternates between utterly dissonant and budget C64 remake, and it ends right when I was hoping it to become interesting, but at least it doesn't overstay its welcome and is competently built, so a weak thumb because most of the problems can be written up for lack of experience.

Better and longer than my fist time. Keep going.

Just to prevent misunderstandings.. I mean my FIRST time, not FIST.

Nice! @dascon ROTFL you made my day

Very clear sense of direction - good pacing, careful framing of shots, etc.
Music isn't personally to my taste, but I think it complements the visuals well.
Others have already pointed out the jarring DoF, which is my only major hangup with this intro.
Still, very good for a firstie, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next :)

Very good for a firstie :-) Flying object could have been less static and explosion more powerfull...

Smashed it out the park for a firstie!
rulez added on the 2018-06-25 10:14:09 by djh0ffman djh0ffman
This was nice. Some elements like the DoF were a bit overdone, but I like compact intros, and this had a lot of content for its playtime.

nice =) and also what they said about dof ;)

This must be the best Firstie i ever witnessed! Well done and welcome to the scene!
Don´t listen to all the "DoF is overdone"-sayers! ;) I think this is exactly what made the prod stand out!
Music rulez aswell!
Too bad you had to loose against that TextMode++-Emoji-Demo! ;) But you should count this as a win...smaller size and better content! (i would have voted the Emoji-thingamabob 1st aswell, tho!)

should have won over the emoji thing :) well done!

Really nice geometry and shading but i'm really not a fan of the over the top DOF. way too much, feels like you're hiding things. But it's really nice intro, looks lovely overall and incredible for firstie! Possibly the best firstie ever, well done! I hope we compete again soon broski, but this time I will win ;)

A tad short, but great design, colors and music!

Welcome to the scene! Looking forward to more stuff from you. The first intro did set the bar damn high though. Awesome music is awesome too !
rulez added on the 2018-07-05 18:21:38 by Triace Triace
Absolutely like the music.
A great and succesful effort here trying to tell us a story.
Well played visual resources. Nice to use your own universe rules.
Looks like a shoot'em'up, really.
More stuff please!
