Nice production! Those spinning dice were a highlight. That was fresh look!

Very nice work, I liked the fan rotating in the storm drain effect, and I thought the lead-up to the greets was very clever

Hi
Nice demo and I really liked the musics. Are they using 3 YM voices + 2 ste dma channels for sample at the same time ?

Thanks for the nice comments, glad you enjoyed our prod. The musics use 3 YM voices (1 of them with Timer effects like SID) and 1 STE-DMA channel with fixed STE frequencies. MaxYMIser also allows to use 2 STE-DMA channels with various frequencies, but this option is very CPU-consuming, so not an option for a demo production with effects.

My favourite bits were the dice and the helicopter/parallax bit, fan thingy and the ZB'd cubes. And *especially* the music which makes it all work :-P

All the images were beautiful. I really liked the parallax scrolling bit, great colours there. The music was very fitting as well and the effects were very good. But it needed a bit more motion. It felt like a slideshow at times and it was a bit too slow paced.

I very much like the global design, the ambiance/atmosphhere, of course the effects and really the soundtrack is brilliant, to me.

Great you like it, in fact we were not all sure about how the story idea would do. It's a bit different thing from common demos (which I really really like). But anyway our gfx-man Dan just sticked to realize the idea and thats the way it worked out. Cheers!
