Was like "The Black Room", KLF's "The White Room" evil brother. With some Monty Python!

Sick style, big Madoka vibes in a very positive way!

I'm glad you're keeping that abstract 2D streak of ASD productions going.
It's really a treat!

Excellent work, you'll forever be in my heart

Quotes so many ASD-demos. Really great, different style. Music is great too.

Lyrics:

Dreaming
restrictions
addictions
can bend

Somehow
tomorrow
my sorrow
should mend

Maybe
my torment
this moment
will end

My turn
by dying
defying
my destiny

--

Uncharted
Coldhearted
I gotta disappear

Departed
Restarted
The life you stole from me

Illusion
Seclusion
Could never hide in shame
Making amends for the crimes you commit in my name

Deflection
Rejection
I'm shrinking in my mind

Attrition
Sedition
Nobody left behind

Permission
Condition
don't wanna be restrained

I’m free of this prison so
watch me I have been unchained

--

Uncharted
Coldhearted
Already lit the fuse

Restarted
Departed
a lifetime of abuse

Illusion
Seclusion
you never took the blame
covering up the attrocities done in my name

Deflection
Rejection
how could I be so blind?

Sedition
Attrition
should I respond in kind?

Submission
Permission
I'm tired of this game

I’m free of this prison so
fuck you I have been unchained

Loved this. For the first few seconds I was hoping for a soundtrack in the style of Peter Gabriel, but this was fine too.

ASD never fails to deliver. A true artistic piece with amazing visuals and sound track. 2D perfection.

i missed THAT ASD style.
and man i love that deliberate reveling in self-repetitions at the very best!
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 12:20:58 by sq sq
oh, progrock video ;] some nice visuals (love that end sequence!), Ive found vocal mix a bit annoying tho
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 13:12:37 by comankh comankh
@sq: You missed that ASD-style? But why? This gets perfectly in line with Metamorphosis & Midnight Run.
added on the 2024-04-01 13:19:15 by gaspode gaspode
was expecting more Sledgehammer styled music, but this worked too ;)

@gaspode, in all fairness to sq, Midnight run is now 16 years old..

Too much recycling for my taste, but there's no question this is high quality work. Always liked the 2D ASD stuff.
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 15:46:28 by break break
who knew that you can still make demos without a trillion particles flying around in 2024 ;) A very welcome surprise in the compo
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 17:48:25 by madpew madpew
Masterpiece! Love 2D Style and music. The guitar solo is so good.
And nice storytelling. Finally Sisyphus lives happily.
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 17:48:51 by silvia silvia
Very liked it. Even if there were some WTF moments about the content, but I like it anyway and the whole ASD style, it's just awesome. Also the style used from older demos, also a lot of objects and stuff that brought memories back about older demos like Midnight run etc. Ohh this was really 16 years ago ?

Music is really not my cup of tea, but everything is obviously top notch. I liked the last silhouetted part the best.

Well, OK, this was unexpected. At least ASD is never afraid of doing things different—to begin with, I wondered if this was a joke prod or something, but it seems to be quite serious, and I'm sure there's symbolism in there again that I don't quite get. It doesn't quite move me, though, and I found myself a bit… bored?

Also, I am at a loss as of why this recommends a RTX 3000-series GPU. Am I missing some fancy stuff in the background?
added on the 2024-04-01 20:06:10 by Sesse Sesse
@sesse this, most probably, has been forgotten in the nfo file from our previous demo. It runs pretty smooth at 1080p on my tired old 1060.

And (navis correct me if I’m wrong) but the seemingly 2d renders of Sisyphus and Merope actors are still in 3d.
added on the 2024-04-01 21:18:17 by aMUSiC aMUSiC
Already thumbed up above. I can confirm: Smooth and no problems with my 5 year old PC with GTX 1080 card.
added on the 2024-04-01 21:50:53 by Chainsaw Chainsaw
Gorgeous style and beautifully polished as usual
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 22:01:15 by prm prm
generally speaking the demo is quite lightweight. The shaders do a few things like tesselation, "cutout" shading (which is a large convolution thingie), shadow mapping and some color correction. And rendering of the 3d models. I can get 150fps+ at 1440 almost everywhere on my 3070 - the info says 3000 because I dont think I have something smaller to test :-)
added on the 2024-04-01 22:15:51 by Navis Navis
marvellous! the demoscene needs such works of art more regularly :-)

ASD - awesome stylish demo? or a music video?
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 22:23:24 by spiryt spiryt
visually very good - and that 90's mtv rock look & feel is nice and obvious, but damn i personally cannot stand ASD sound at all..

Love the style, the music, everything.

Too fresh and unique to win the compo, but with time will be the more memorable entry 🔥
rulez added on the 2024-04-01 23:36:47 by lynn lynn
Awesome work.

I love the visual aesthetics.
I love the references to previous demos.
Sadly the music genre is not my cup of tea at all, so I did not enjoy the whole thing properly.

Reminds me of those nights I've spent watching Alternative Nation on MTV.

Awesome song and great visuals.

Fantastic production, looks more like a summary of many previous demos than something really new. Is it a good bye prod?

this tracks p hard (without the monty python for me) good solid ASD style 2D demo. I like when y'all experiment a bit.

Loving all the cultural references, both visually as well as musically. I just don't know how fit Ryan Gosling into all of this ;D (joke)

what a trip. so much going on on so many levels, impossible to put into a single feeling.
A narrative fractal of the asd universe.

While this is not exactly up my alley it's consistent and tons of stuff going on.

One minor "complaint": It really feels like the male vocal doesn't sit well in the mix.

Awesome demo. Leviathan riffs are superb and make the track fly!
added on the 2024-04-04 18:59:51 by spiryt spiryt
i rather like the visual style, and the music was interesting too. bold / different for a demo maybe, a bit of a throwback to the older asd "alternative" demos.

but it doesn't go anywhere, it outlives its welcome at half the runtime, and the music and visual feel completely disconnected, so.. as a piece of motion graphics i cant say it works. needed a stronger creative direction to pull it off.

ASD - The music video. So much weirdness, in a good way.

And thanks for the soundtrack write-up!

Absolutely impressive how you created something that is both a parody of and an ode to yourself.
The perfect gift to collect your price for what is probably the best demo of the next ten years.
rulez added on the 2024-04-08 17:14:46 by hfr hfr
It somehow feels like the last demo has a weird dream, and I love it :)

Yeah, there's something slightly off about the audio mix and one could argue about the length and pace, but those are nitpicks. What sq said - very happy _that_ side of ASD is back.

Shady shade of good'n'old ASD. Still nice meanwhile
rulez added on the 2024-04-13 10:54:36 by Frozzy Frozzy
Too kitsch for my taste. Since this demo is all about the aesthetics and story that means I couldn't understand it, sorry.
added on the 2024-04-13 13:37:39 by cce cce
Didn't really seem to have much direction or evolution and felt longer than it really was... but it's great to see this side of ASD again. I enjoyed the unique style and all the references
