Watching this during the stream I messaged Optic to say that all this neon is going to make our amiga neon copper bars look reeeeaaaal bad :D
Just watched it again on my PC. I love everything about this prod!

could have been more packed and paceful but i guess you tuned it to the song which was there first..
nevertheless it has great scenes and a really oldschool-newschool-intro vibe!

Sorry, we haven’t been able to test this on ATI cards which does seems to cause problems.

It’s tested on six different Nvidia cards ranging from really old ones to much more newer ones such as the 2080 cards.

We’ll try to get an ATI card and workout a final release.

Great feedback from Gargaj and also Spkr/SMFX.
Great Revival Demo !

Superb demo! Beautiful music, nice visual and clear scenes, well-chosen color palette.
Finally, different colors appeared in the PC demo ;) How am I already tired of the gray-palette demos.

So finally I sat over to my NVIDIA machine to watch this and I'm not sure what to think. There's nothing _wrong_ with this per se, and it has some good looking moments, but the audio and visuals are so disconnected that you could practically shuffle the scenes around and you'd pretty much get the same demo, and it feels like a 90s demo upgraded to 2020 rendering, down to the city scene with billboards with greetings and fidgety camera, but with early 00s design overlays.

I don't know, there's just not a whole lot of personality or intention to it.

Shiney! Cyber! I like it.
rulez added on the 2020-02-11 21:01:22 by NR4 NR4
most scenes (and the lo-fi overlays) remind me of an 'early accelerated pc demo' from like 2001, the city part is very meh. let's end on a positive note, i liked the soundtrack and it made me remember it's been a while since i listened to Windowlicker ;)
it has some nice polished looking scenes and the soundtracks fits. so yes it is a demo and does what demos should do. but somehow it lacks soul while showing off.
Best demo i have seen in quite some time except the ones i was involved in. ;)

Lots of unmotivated glitching and blinking. Neither the soundtrack nor the good old camera moving through 3d scene caught my fancy, sorry. But at least it has nice colors.

Before people think I went totally arrogant I would like to point out I was joking with my comment. Not about this demo being amazing, though.

Enjoyable show with quite a lot of very familiar design elements and some fresh stuff too, all coming together in a fun package. I'd encourage you guys to seek some more inspiration from outside the scene, but your progress over the last couple years is certainly impressive!

somehow a mixed bag. some gorgeous scenes (neon balls etc) and some ugly scenes (city). the music feels very disconnected and I don't like the overlays (although I'm usually a fan of overlays, if done right)
nevertheless the good scenes are really pretty, so motivational thumb up

Eye candy!

Fabulous visuals. The direction is not my kind of liking. I would like more symmetric camera movments or just rotations around a "pivot" point or around a fixed axis at times, I think that would take me there. The music had a really good vibe which I liked. Thanks.

Most sexy metaballs and spheres in 2020! So many beautiful scenes.

How come I did not yet thumb this up! Watched it again today and enjoyed it thoroughly! Thanks for the connection bitbendaz!

uneven & a bit bland.
That said, both the music and the visuals are very cool, I loved those metaballs.

Superb quality you had already in 2020 - and nice to notice how your style has evolved from this into your own unique demo style. Keep it up!!

Rough around the edges and kinda misses the mark, but still enjoyable to watch.
