Cool landscape and some paticle effect.
design was good.
I like it.

Very nice.
The clouds were amazing and even if some other scenes weren't as good as the first one, i liked it.
It failed to create an atmosphere in me, mostly because of the music (it didn't fit very well, imho).

Just a hint: When using minifmod sync to the time, and not to the pattern/row.
minifmod has a weird bug on multiprocessor machines - sometimes the routines to get pattern and row position fail, and return absurde values.

great textures, animated clouds and landscape for 64k. i would have liked it more without all that text though and if something really interesting happened in there.
added on the 2002-11-03 17:17:57 by robotriot robotriot
yep. the clouds. and the scenes were very nice.

but I really hated the stupid poetry/typography stuff. and didn't like the overall design. Also the music was quite horrible.

.still nice clouds thumb up.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 17:24:44 by droid droid
fine clouds and landscape. remove the texts please (or atleast spell check it;) and the music could've been better.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 17:27:51 by skypher skypher
sonnet part 2: even more landscapes & cliche scene poetry ;)
But yes, it's nice and all...
added on the 2002-11-03 17:37:47 by tomaes tomaes
Hmm. Quite nice. Beautiful clouds, nice landscape, but, as already mentioned, the music does not fit the style. Nearly a thumb up.

nice clouds, nice landscape ...... but the music wasn't my cup of tea......

But overall nice
nice clouds
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 17:48:52 by moolok moolok
the clouds look nice, and the landscapes aswell, but the music kill the experience, it is really bad.
added on the 2002-11-03 17:51:33 by NoahR NoahR
nice clouds. well, not unlike any other piece of scene poetry, this sucks. and the scenes seems too similar. music is okayish perhaps below average.
the landscapes were okay, especially the part with the sunset. but overall the fucking filter frenzy spoiled just about everything. so pigface.

Nice atmospheric intro. The music would have been more suitable without the heavy beat, but still a very decent effort.

Looking forward to the next one.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 19:52:47 by Wade Wade
Iq you rulez!!!! congratulations. Great 64kb intro. so nice so cute.

rulez added on the 2002-11-03 20:03:43 by acidbeat acidbeat
Cool landscapes and clouds, but I didn't like the "sgenepoetry" and music was pretty annoying.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 20:22:59 by teel teel
Totally ok, but way too kitchy for me :)
added on the 2002-11-03 20:48:35 by steffo steffo
Impressive images, but lacks more effects, also the music did not fit (it wasn't bad, but definitely not fitted the demo). I'll have to see it again on my monitor and then decide if i want to give it a thumbs up or not :)

Nice intro anyway
added on the 2002-11-03 20:59:14 by Jcl Jcl
Best clouds so far. The landscape has atmosphere. But the whole stuff is a bit simple.
added on the 2002-11-03 23:04:26 by pohar pohar
nice intro, the textures could have had higher resolution tho.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 23:04:51 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
I liked the clouds (er? I felt kinda deja-vou)
and the textures, and the snow effects, and... well, poetry wasn't bad at all (I mean, if not, it should have been some kind of empty)... musix was... well, not the best, but was ok, I think. Yeah, a very cool prod! Go on, and hope to see ya at BCN'03

Very promising stuff, I'm waiting for the 'megaintro' :)

Very good code, the rest is so-soih.
rulez added on the 2002-11-03 23:47:02 by Jare Jare
Great landscapes, but not enough variation in this intro. But the potential is there to make a great intro....dont hurry next time :)
added on the 2002-11-03 23:50:30 by Wain Wain
technically and visually ok (although the code was used very recently for a code contest). Fonts are horrible, music doesnt cut it. And very similar to sonnet and friends. But congrats for winning and producing, so thumbs up
rulez added on the 2002-11-04 00:02:30 by mac mac
Nice accelerated landscapes (Voxels look still better though)
added on the 2002-11-04 01:25:32 by Optimus Optimus
Very nice, but it lacked some pepper. The music could've done without such a nasty beat, but those clouds sure look neat :)
added on the 2002-11-04 03:03:24 by Shifter Shifter
It's nice, but when there is 20kb left, please take the time to use it properly. It could have been as good as sonnet.
The landscape and clouds are really good looking !
added on the 2002-11-04 03:27:26 by Sanx Sanx
eh, pigface. The landscape and the music was both a mixed bag.
added on the 2002-11-04 03:36:24 by cats cats
Very nice visually... but a good example of how a bad choice in music can effect the end result.
rulez added on the 2002-11-04 05:40:43 by verm verm
agreed, music didnt fit well, but visually very nice.
rulez added on the 2002-11-04 08:55:16 by Panda Panda
i wonder,

all these thumbs up, is the intro perhaps a little buggy? i mean, the texturing was fucking ugly on my machine.
added on the 2002-11-04 10:11:16 by superplek superplek
simple and ok

added on the 2002-11-04 12:51:13 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
great!! congratulations Iq! I love your good taste at design and visuals :)
The explanation for the music is very simple: Iq arrived at the party without music and ask for one to Wizard (if i remember well), and so that's because image and music don't fit very well..

nice code (clouds, landscape), music not so cool, overall design not so cool either (more landscapes & less scene poetry & fix colors a bit). so a pigface. and oh yes: please please do polyfont or at least higher resolution textures when you zoom text that high.

An intro which gives back a little bit of what once was. A bit of "dawn" and "nation zero 2" feeling in here. Mostly done by the music.

Keep up the good work -- there's still that little something extra missing (dune/orange :-)

Fly-by scenes and sgeneboedry are not usually my cup of tea, but this one definitely chilled me out. Keep on.

A very nice intro, but the music maybe isn't the correct one. The Clouds and the landscapes are so beautiful. Rulez.

everything annoyed me, but the clouds...
Very nice clouds, as well as pretty good terrain generation and ambience.

Nice clouds. Good mountains. I liked how the greets blew in the wind. Decent grass. But it all seemed a little 'empty' to me. Still, it's well executed.

Well...the music and the text made me like this demo.Strange?Anyway,it really looks somehow unfinished.But this is because the paradise is coming.

Extremely cool!!!

-crappy drum sounds
-kitsch lyrics (applies to 99% of all demos with lyrics unfortunately)
-rough edges in close-up view

+morphing clouds look positively fantastic
+great textures
+beautiful sun flare
+nice harmonies in music

give us that megademo you promised! :)

I like landscapes. Was pretty nice, music/samples is very familiar, heard them recently while watching an Amiga demo but can't quite put my finger on the name of it.
And the grass sucked, would have been better left out :)

Yeah! This is one of my favourite 64k´s. If not THE favourite. It´s so relaxing and beautiful! Especially I liked the sundown-in-mountains-scene. The 4k "Scheintal" reminds me of that.


Maybe it (Scheintal) was inspired by this scene.
