Absolutely gorgeous prod! I love the majestetic athmosphere created by visuals and soundtrack. The shots also do a good way of conveying the sense of (huge) scale to the viewer.
I'm sad I couldn't go to the party, as I planned to and see it on the bigscreen.

Another master piece from Kiero and Chaser. Instant classic.

These particles are lovely, solid work and unexpected comeback of the old crew!

A well deserved first place! Great massive effects and interestingly shown, huge potential in this new engine. The music, details, visual finishing touches - it's all good here. Congratulations!

I am bursting to watch this, but my 1060 only shows a slideshow. Is it possible to lower the resolution?

runs fine on a 1070... not that much to see though. but still... mawi! :D

Well, anything below 30x0 is not recommended for watching this one. Hopefully organisers will upload their 3090TX stream soon. Brace brace.

This demo features the most beautiful particle effects! Great music too.

Thanks for a great music.
I especially like 1st minute of the demo.

Really like how the geometry/lighting slowly develops in the credits part.
The particles look rather uninspired, though.

Very good!

With all due respect - and i honestly mean it, releasing anything is quite cool - it looks like a mediocre 64k intro.

Excellent sound and visuals!

I think that the new Elude's PC engine hides inside much more awesome stuff, just as always there wasn't time to show it off properly. One way or another well deserved winner!

Looks great! Love the moving lights and shadows effects in these scenes. Very atmospheric.

The whole demo feels like it is an architect's vision for some kind of opera or conference of very important elders building.

What a great prod! Everything fits together creating stunning atmosphere.

epic but a bit too uneventful for my tastes
rulez added on the 2021-09-08 15:29:33 by wullon wullon
Very good! Good visuals, fitting letters and text design, solid music.
But, unfortunately, the demo has a serious flaw - it ENDS when it should really START! Thus, personally, I would call it a dentro.

I've downloaded it and without much start options the demo is running viewport in a non fullscreen window that seems to be taking keyboard input for camera control. Are you sure it's the actual build that you wanted to release?

Also I'm wondering now if any of you commenters had run an exe or we're all watching youtube these days (I only watch the youtube, this was rare exception!)
added on the 2021-09-16 11:36:48 by ton ton
Oh wow!
The direction and the soundtrack is fantastic!
Awesome visual too. There is some pathtracing + denoising involved ?

@ton The release was pretty rough in a sense, that there is full editor running underneath. There was simply no time to polish non-ui functionality and to be honest i didn't think about blocking mouse capture;) I will push version with proper fullscreen (sorry, it will still not have res selector) probably tomorrow.

@Anat Single bounce indirect lighting + some volumetric effects.

As for some other comments, this was really rushed release to test the new demo tool. This kind of forced music selection and pacing because whole sequencer was hacked in few days before the party while tons of other stuff also had to be developed. Same for lack of content (almost all 3d was done by me, which i guess shows...)
