There's a bug in bassmod which makes most of the threedee scenes disappear in some machines (such as in the compomachine). Hell, i'm switching to fmod.

It's realy scary!!!

very very sweet evocation of an acid trip panic attack.

very nice monsters mapped with nosfe's face, a soundtrack that i definitely like + very clever/different accelerated rendering.

very very scary..

Reminds me of some Chris Cunningham's work on Aphex Twin music videos mixed together with Kooma style of approach. Some scary feeling indeed, I'm happy I didn't watch this late at night. :)

Piggie for not pushing the thema for any more (my guess is the normal "lack of time" again) and recycling the same gfx all over the demo length. However definitely worth watching and at least it's nice to see something decent submitted to Pouet.net for a change.

should've won the compo. though, flo's demo was also good.

i'm so pretty pretty pretty. :)

fun, but not exactly great.

could've used some more ideas & effects.

i like the faces, but all in all i think this demo is too noisy visually and the sound are best turned off.

Is this art? </flamebait>

A good idea, but could have been carried out better. Grew boring.

That was some nice original 3D modeling. Definitely not just a scene fly-by! Scared the turds outta me...

Very nice. Everything fit together in the most hideous manner. Great.

My only complaint is the concept doesn't real hold up for more than about 2 to 2.5 minutes. Halfway through I was really wanting the demo to end.

somewhat different idea, which is good. data directory makes me sad - those black & white faces could have been created/stretched in code, but no, lamely done in photoshop or something - and of course the 3 megs of someone snoring during the demomaking wasn't much of a soundtrack. I liked it but it could have been more, and for that no up... Innovative tho, just needed to be one effect rather than a whole demo.
those black and white faces are not photographs and no photoshop or such was used to make them look like they do.

I agree that it's a bit too long but the idea is very nice and scary anyway. Good work.

Melwyn already said most of what has to be said: very Chris Cunningham + Richard D James. In fact, the textures for the deformed faces look a lot like a couple of more recent RDJ 'photos' :)

I *heart* this. Brilliant stuff, even though the music was a tiny bit of a letdown.

Nosfe: I assume this is done breaking the ancient rule of "don't move too much while putting your face on a scanner"? I have quite a number of those kind of scans from a drunken party :)

omg it's frightening
60 seconds are enought for this kind of delirium, so it's become quickly boring
This one is extremely cool. I will not attempt to describe it, but don't let small children watch this or they can't sleep at night :)

watch "house on the haunted hill", "the excorsist" and "thir13en ghosts" for inspiration.. :)

I liked this. COuld have been better, but it was still good.

btw, i've seen an artist doing the same type of pics as the black and white distorted ones, using a fat naked middle-aged woman and a large piece of glass :) Modern art sucks :)
rulez added on the 2003-08-22 15:44:00 by psonice psonice
Did somebody say the pics were stretched in Photoshop ???

Looks like they had a Xerox glass plate licking session to me ...

Top marks for the 3VIL vibes ... Scarier than Michael and his brothers indeed ...
