So awesome! Really appreciate the British spelling of "initialise" too!

Was this built on an evolution of Rose, or something new, or both?

I see from the NFO it's Rose. Cool!

The engine hasn't changed since way too rude but I applied a bit of tooling to import a few bits of data like the icons, text pages and the waveform. At its core it can still only draw circles or squares.

I can’t begin to imagine how complicated that Rose script is, so kudos for that alone.

I think this one will divide the audience. I enjoyed it on the stream, watching the story unfold, but I couldn’t help being left feeling like it was the intro to a demo that I wanted to see, if that makes sense? That said, the creativity was great, particularly given the constraints, and I very much look forward to part two..!!

Great concept, and I totally admire the huge amount of work that went into making this!

I did find it a little boring though (I guess I prefer to see cool coded effects in general), but still deserves a thumb for the work :)

I cannot decide if totally r00lz or it's just OK.
I mean, it's a really different concept(looks like more a presentation of some program), but in a demo compo i think it's expected more visual effects and astonishing music.
Please don't get me wrong, i admire the effort and the difficult task to do some with Rose. Just we expected more colors and effects and awesome sounds that master H0ffman brings to us.

It's very original concept and making, anyway. Good job.

Interesting but a bit long if you seen it at night after 48 days without sleeping ! 😁
You did a very bold move deciding to use a mostly (if not entirely) diegetic soundtrack on a scene production. No music but, still, not boring. Interestingly, the design alone supports the entire feel. Also, the heavy use of Rose impose a limit in the colors so this is just monochromatic (four tones) except for some green that appear in sudden overlayed graphics. That makes this production unique and I salute you for this.

Though I must say the execution don't reach the potential of the idea... Cause this should have been interactive! Now I wanna play with your cyberpunk GUI and check my inbox in Logic OS! :]

thank you for sticking to your guns and not giving in to pressure to make this more "traditional"

in many ways a spiritual companion to one of my favorite demos "{" by Downown, but at the same time i don't think it's exactly trying to do the same thing, since the level of abstraction is entirely different, with this one being a lot more concrete and to the point, which loses some of the magic for me

nevertheless, i commend you for going outside the comfort zone, and breaking away from people's expectations

Only way this could have worked was as an interactive demo. But I guess noone does that anymore. That said, experimentation is good in itself so piggy.

So I've now watched it again and I have many thoughts:

First off, the idea is fun (in line with the trend of screenlife films and games like Uplink or Superhot where a story is told through a person's interaction through a user interface), there's some absolutely delicious (if a bit "common") UI sound design and some fun UX going on. All of this on an Amiga and that's already an impressive feat.

My big problem is with the rest - the first is the glacial pacing: initially it's a good idea to slow down the interface traversal to let the user absorb the setting, but the more the plot moves forward, the less time you should spend on loading spinners and UI animations waiting to finish, and since the plot is building up to something, you should gradually ramp up your intensity in action as well - instead there's a lot of "waiting for screen to fill" thumb twiddling that in the end accounts for most of the running length.

The other thing is that the plot kindof ends out of nowhere (the only real foreshadowing is that little popup during the "LOADING CRACKER" part, but it's hard to distinguish it from the rest of the OS) and ends a bit abruptly (sequel hook?) without a real climatic sense of what exactly happened; the UI audio hum actually starts pitchbending up (a nice touch) to show that you're in the coda of the prod, but then that happens ~20 seconds before the prod ends which feels a bit too abrupt.

I guess what I'm saying is that the actual elements of an absolute genius prod where there, and all it missed was a little tightness in direction - but then, whether that was technically feasible (with Rose, with Amiga, etc) is a different question. Still a great prod, of course, just couldn't get past the nitpicks yet :)

Kind of agree with Gargaj, speeding up the second access to the same module would also make sense from a technical point of view: It just got "cached" after the first access :)

I was expecting something along the lines of "Way to rude" or "Everyway", from one of my fav demoscene musicians so I was puzzled. I guess this concept would have fit better in the wild category, although cramming everything into 64KB took many hours of sleep for sure. It can surprise on first watch but doesn't have as much "lastability" as your other prods. It reminds me about early amiga games/anims that told a story, so I wouldn't say it's a really original/new idea, more like nostalgic for me. The design and tiny anims are nice but it doesn't portrait your great music/design/synchro/asm skills. Anyway don't get me wrong, I wanted it to last more :-)

Thumb up for achieving storytelling and installing an ambience in an OCS 64kb intro. The pace is too slow/repetitive though for my taste.
rulez added on the 2022-04-19 12:16:47 by Soundy Soundy
While it's a bit slow for me I like that we don't need to stare at the same plasma, scrollers, etc that has been repeated many times over. So big kudos for doing something different.

Also I know how annoying it must have been to sync this whole thing :)

rulez added on the 2022-04-19 14:21:14 by Flashira Flashira
Addendum: "original" doesn't nearly describe how I feel about this prod, so let me rephrase.

For some time now there have been discussions about the evolution of the demo art form. Whether it is about the demoscene style being stale (Gargaj recently made a demo about it), legitimate questions about the future of demo in the new and evolving platform landscape, the value of real-time as opposed to YouTube, the use of commercial engines, etc. etc.

I think this intro is different enough from what we've seen so far that it meaningfully contributes to this discussion and shows what a demo could be. This alone deserves a thumb.

rulez added on the 2022-04-19 19:15:57 by critikill critikill
Neat concept, but didn't really go anywhere and the pacing was slow.

I hoped that the music was going to keep going once the TRACKER app was exited. I think that would have helped with the pacing and direction - using the soundtrack to push things along.

I don't like the pacing. If it led up to "starting the demo", I think that part could have been quite simple, say a one-screener with simple music. Then it would have rewarded the wait for the build-up!

I enjoyed watching this one very much. It was also quite satisfactory to see that this intro got first place despite its rather simple visuals. This gives me hope that maybe one day I will also come up with a production that will be appreciated by the demoscene.
