Ace! Colliding balls always have been a favourite of mine, and here it's really flowing nicely.
Also nice original views of 1D automaton, with the zoom (and probably the isometric view at the beginning).
All this with wonderful graphics and nice music!

Great! The balls at the end are one of a kind in terms of movement/flow.

Only effect vaguely resembling it might be Spaceballs/Vold with the bouncer circle that bully the others around and tell them to take another walk around the block before they're let back in the disco.

I like the isometric rectangloids too and triangle zoomed thing and the laser line intro of the andromeda logo. Much new stuff to be seen here

Nice stuff spoiled by a bland slow tune that makes the whole thing a bit depressing and indifferent. It goes back to safe chords and safe melody notes all the time very quickly like a continuous stream of tiresome four-bar endings.

First time I ran it on my 1200/060, without a hitch. I was so scared to fuck up any timing I didn't know about, that I decided to do the compo show on my cruddy A500 I had as a backup.

Great demo guys, thanks Hyde, Archmage and Interphace. Hoping for more soon. :)

Beautiful arrangement of 2D goodness. Nice tune with a terminatoresque intro, excellent graphics and gorgeously coloured effects ... glowing kaleidoskopiclimax :D

If there would've been one little gripe, it would be the kind of missing tangible peak, which most certainly was intended to be the fractal zoom. With an ever so slightly progression in colour palette to its end the resolve by the wonderful fluid balls would've been even better.

A decent and smooth production. I like the music with its melancholic
touch and the mellow arpeggio pattern in the background.
The step-by-step manifestation of the Andromeda symbol at the
beginning and the kaleidoscope effect is nice to watch.
What I don't like is the repulsive third eye creature.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, it makes it all worth while and we really appreciate it :) We had a great time releasing this at Gubbdata. Phreedh and Hedning did a super job with the competitions, so thanks for a great party. I hope I can one day be a live participant :)

Also, Phreedh: good thing you used your old cruddy a500. I found some timing issues that happen on fast amigas. I made a final version of the demo that should be equal to the original on a500s, but works on faster amigas too. The download link should be changed soon, I hope.

Also - I dropped Titanics for crunching in the final version :( I used it in the party version to amuse myself: I was never allowed to use Titanics in the 90s because Jekyll thought it was lame and slow. I had the last laugh, at least for a week. The new version loads much faster on amigas with hd, so I guess that is an improvement.

The module is also included on the disk this time!

Great tempo, amazing pixelart and fitting soundtrack. Given how overused by the demoscene these simple automaton-based visuals are, kudos for coming up with a selection of scenes that are uniformly fresh and good-looking.
rulez added on the 2021-07-09 17:22:15 by introspec introspec
@Hyde: For Crapbox 7 I recrunched your demo with cranker -m -d cinema. It's 60k smaller, loads up to ~3x faster and gets a progress bar that way. Titanic's original idea was great, but on certain OS versions Titanics can cause the drive motor to go off on on all the time, resulting in abysmally slow loading. Also the drive motor can stay on while the demo is running.

Truly beautiful kaleidoscope effects. How about updating that Casio you've tormented us with since the 90's, Lord Interphace? And Archmage, that's your Amiga comeback after all those amazing C64 pictures, that poor man's Giger chap/crap with a hole on his head and an eye bubbling from his hand?
added on the 2021-07-11 03:00:34 by tempest tempest
To put it in a sober and less of a dick way, the music lacks energy and the lead sounds are very basic, even toyish, which reminds me of the cheap synthesizer demotunes back in the day - and the music in some of the old Andromeda Amiga demos, which lacked punch.

This tune sounds like there's not much going on in the patterns apart from notes. It's mechanical even when it gets very melodic, and to be honest, catchy. I kind of get what Interphace is trying to do here, maybe having a bit more detail and character in handling those lead and bass instruments wouldn't work at all with the synthwave arrangement. It still comes off as lifeless. For example after the buildup and even changing the drum beat to double-time nothing really intensifies in the last part. There's no subtle changes in the pulse of the bass. Sounds like there's the same volume handling throughout and very little shaping of sounds to accentuate the rhythm. But again, it might be totally what Interphace is trying to do here and it just isn't my thing at all. To my ears it still sounds a bit undertracked, even "Karstenish" in terms of handling the samples, which the art of making .MOD music is mostly about. Not a bad tune though.

Like I mentioned before, the kaleidoscopes look fantastic. This is the kind of effect that will always look appealing. You don't have to tell to the uninitiated what they're looking at or why it should be considered impressive, which is pretty rare in demos for older computers when you think about it. The same cannot be said on the isometric split screen which drags on for almost half a minute. Another similarly unfortunate pairing is the monochrome chaos zoomer or whatever and the colorful balls at the end of the demo.

Archmage, who has made tons of really impressive graphics on the C64 during the last few years doesn't quite reach the same level when returning to the Amiga. The different dithering methods (horizontal lines, "chess board" of 2 different color schemes to blend them together) on the biomechanical third eye character with a hole on his forehead, already familiar from Archmage's C64 graphics, aren't that successful.

The image itself of this rough and dirty looking fella seems visually out of place in a demo that has a mixture of simple and clean visual imagery, line vectors, isometric shapes, retrowave and all that. Looks more like a filler than a carefully placed image, even though it is some sort of a continuation to the title screen where the third eye is still intact, hinting at a narrative. Not very appealing image, this latter one, but it's ok... but hey, it's by Archmage so the standards are very high.

The same can be said about the demo itself, because it's an Andromeda demo. Some unexpected goodness was missing apart from the fact that it was a comeback demo.

That's why a piggy.

What tempest said about the soundtrack - it's nice composition wise but it just sounds lackluster (not the Finn) IMHO. The effects, especially the bubbles at the end, more than make up for it tho :)
rulez added on the 2021-07-13 20:03:31 by kb_ kb_
i have to disagree with tempest regarding the pictures.

I think they are a strong point of the demo as they put the whole fractals/symmetry/pattern scheme into a larger context, hinting at some mysterious world where evil humans loose their mind by the mathematical forces they can't control. or something :)

The images ooze with style and remind me of great european comic masters like Moebius et al. - the rougher dithering rules hard and emphasizes the artistic vision.
added on the 2021-07-14 11:26:00 by spike spike
Every demo has faults, usually a lot. I find the music undersignificant, but it does in no way spoil it.
I'd have a lot to complain about in the code department, not much being realtime here would be the biggest gripe.
Get past celebrity worship and "for a group like... I expected more", just take every demo for what it is.
In my opinion demos should be as disconnected as possible, audiovisual sculptures - and reliant on nothing but themselves.
Context reliance, referentiality, style and worship of past glory kill the art.
This one does it right, who cares if it's Andromeda. :-)

I guess I'll always have the problem with Andromeda demos that I compare everything with the Amiga AGA demonstration Nexus 7. And nothing can compete with that. Even the beginning was simply epic and incomparable. RULE 30 is well done, but unfortunately that doesn't change much about my problem ... ;-)

I heard on The Party 1994 days before the democompo that Andromeda was working on something. No one had seen the members because they were busy at the hotel. Everyone was eagerly waiting for the evening when the demos would be shown. The atmosphere was totally emotionally charged, you can't reproduce that, no matter how good the next demo or the one after that might be ...

Heroes of the past delivered a neat prod once again. Not so powerful as we know you're capable of, but hell - great to have old names releasing new products! Welcome back!

I am always amazed to see people come up with new fresh ideas on OCS and other old machines. The fade effects and the hexagonal kaleidoscope are great. Very well done with an extremely atmospheric tune that immediately takes you back to the days when Amiga was new.
