unintentional double post - didn't respond when I clicked post the first time but I guess still went through - please remove this post

One of my all-time faves: the atmosphere, graphical styles, robot-heads society and especially the SID of the second half just rule.
Still waiting for the sequel in the same style but pimped up: One Billion LY from Earth.

It indeed does feel a mil LY from Earth and the music fits perfectly. Unique wonderful style and effects. Love it!

Lovely demo! I particularly enjoyed the eclipse effect. Simple but effective. Jeff's atmospheric music is perfect here too.

Really, really excellent - watching it alone in a dark room could set your mind for that day.
Perhaps the only negative side is the bit incoherent design which is jumping back and forth but I can live with that this time. :)
Oh yes, and the music. One word: WOW!

Best music in a demo?

There are some excellent screens in this demo. It would have been nice to see parts of it executed as single pages instead.

I don't get what's so bad about that little planet sprite?

I was bought the moment the first screen appeared! The only thing I feel that lets this demo down is that horrible planet sprite! I just wish it used sharp sprite overlays. As it is, it looks out of place (..and space!) ...but still, this demo is so mind warpingly fantastic!

Great one!
And the landscape effect looks an interesting one to take a peek...

Lots of nice effects and fine design. Jeffs soundtrack is fantastic and fits very well with the rest of the demo. I especially like the vector-astronaut. I would love to see more of him! ;)

Damn, this demo really inspires me. And the soundtrack.... DAMN it's good. Just had Jeff to give me the source so that I can use it in my parts while developing them. =D

Two thumbs up! Haven't been that fascinated by a Fairlight demo since watching Legoland 1 and 2... Too bad Tron and Ogami quit.

Watching this demo att the party really made me feel like i was out in space. Thanx to the special music, well chosen design and effects, and probably some amount of alcohol :). This is simply demo!

This demo really surprised me positively. I'm not quite sure about the story, but there is a story :-)
Great soundtrack!!

Awesome music. Even better graphics. Can't say anything about code, I'm not competent enough. But it leaves something to be desired in the concept area. What happened? Hang the blessed DJ because the music that he plays it says nothing to me about my life.

Absolutely amazing atmosphere this demo manages to create. Brilliant screenplay, very coherent both graphically and soundwise. Probably FairLight's best work so far!
