Nice music, but very ugly graphics and crappy 3d models. And do you really need to add that ugly blur effect over every 3d scene?

not bad at all. nice music. some good effects and atmosphere. I think you should have considered dropping the not-so-good effects in order to make the demo somewhat shorter. some of the transitions were very lame, as well as the font for the greetings. some textures were very ugly. but anyway, nice first prod

umm... why the feedback is that negative? i found this demo very interesting, and it seems to be much better than your previous ones.

maybe the concept is not convenient with demoscene requirements

The best of K-Storms stuff. It's nice to see some animated objects, which is something that one too many demos negelect. But the animation wasn't that great, especially the say the horse galloping looped. Oh well, bonus points for effort.

Overall the coding was pretty good. Seemed like a solid 60fps and not everything was a scene flyby. The grass looked awful: It stood up totally straight like a bunch of iron spikes and didn't seemed to be 100% attached to the ground.

The 'sex' scene had me falling of my chair in laughter. I wasn't laughing with it, I was lauging *at* it. That was pure stupidity at it's finest.

Colours were ugly as fuck, too much blure, and the music was downright awful.

So true. :)

Well, I put a "rulez" as a motivation for next one.

Please, remove blurred feedback effects, remove not necessary effects, avoid to use to times the same effect, and improve animations.
Globaly a decent demo, but need a lot of "ironing".

I have to put a thumbs up for how K-Storm improoved overall since last spring!!! Just imagine how many demos (prods) and the quality improvements over less than 1 year... 1 year ago people were like "skarab, you're a lamer with no prod", etc etc...

This demo is definately the first demo to make me laugh like a stupid f*ck!!!! The sex scene.... Has anyone checked to see if those are two male models? How about that horse zoom in towards it's ass while walking like if it has some broken leg?

Really nice code, better music and gfx will make the next one a wonderful demo.

33 I love your comment :)))
I knew that we could watch the demo with differents feelings (like all the demo..), and I remember thinking to something like that : In the horse scene, between that, the horse don't run (galloping), he is walking (thom look at tv or book or.. horse), yes whe can see the ass and the horse seems to have broken leg and haven take drugs (with his techno-head) ;) For the sex scene, this is one woman and one man, but look better near the pussy.. oh and in the first scene the man hit the wall.
I'm very agree with this kind of feelings, even if make laugh people wasn't our first goal (but to change this little things it wouldn't have take more than 30mn, so open your mind, and see what you want to watch :)
Thanks all for watching our demo.

the stuff in the scrshot is kinda nice, james bond style ;-)

besides that:
- the music is not my thing
- the character animation sucks
- the textures are way off
added on the 2003-03-17 11:14:25 by superplek superplek
It's diferrent style than the previous K-Storm demos, even if it still reuses the same effects but in a more interesting way. I like the musics from new-g as in the previous demos too. Seemed like the code is a bit faster now. It's a pitty that the animations have so few frames, that horse would look great with some cool animation..

Le progression est vraiment remarquable. Cette prod est vraiment originale, forcement c'est pas parfait, mais je ne peux que vous encourager à continuer dans cette direction, et devenir la relève de la scène francaise qui aujourd'hui en a bien besoin.
Bonne chance.

pas mal, la scéne avec bite de bourrage est ... pleine de blending. Moi je trouve que meme si la demo est pas top elle montre un gros potentiel.
Allez un vote pour la demo du monsieurs et du cheval qui marchent. (est ce le meme monsieurs et le meme cheval dans la scene chelou avec bite de bourrage ? hmmm ...)

Great Demo although the texture on the horse could be slighlty different.
The Title reminds me of a card in Magic The Gathering which is rear.

the theme really makes me want to puke.. stupid man repetitively walking in a 3dgame level, awfull horse ride, pointless sex scene, and the usual awfull endscroller..

other than that, it's not a bad one.. ok, nice improvements in the effets and engine.. some elements taken separately could have been very nice if used in a nice way ..
improve the 2d graphics, they aren't at all coherent together.. change your music tastes, change this very stupid 3d storytelling theme.. make it more ironic, more serious or less stupid at least.

I would like to tell something, please don't vote about my "arrogance" because I'm not alone to create this demo, the vote shouldn't mean if you like me or not, just vote for the demo itself.

flrnt : if i write "first ranked" it was just only because I didn't want make pub here. And we surely don't have the same feeling about "paradise", and if you consider that it stupid to show our feelings...

I did sympathized Skarab, cause he is a too enthousiastic newbie, more than what I was when I started. Though, he has released many demos since then, beeing more active than me (who has stayed back in tme (quickbasic and cpc ;)) but still spamming like hell, as if his demos didn't got the attention he wanted. Which is strange, cause he got enough popularity and thumbs without needing to spam at first. It's strange that he continues doing this even after many many productions but perhaps he is just making fun of us :)

Whatever, I am not personally caring that much, but I just wanted to point out. You don't need to tell us again and again about your demos Skarab, many people have seen them and applaused them already. If your demos will get even better (which will happen as I beleive..) you will get the big attention you might except. It's already there afteralls..
