I have seen PAL rave about this on several occasions, but I haven't really taken the time to sit down to watch it before now. It is something else, that's for sure. I really enjoyed it! And the tune is epic, Jan.

This demo is one of my favourites from the LCP party this year. Not really a compo kind of demo, but certainly a lovely ride into space when you are sitting comfortably at home. I love it. Big up Ancients and Dual Crew!

Hello Jan.... the musics are super in this one... wow... you surprised me quite a lot with these... I think the demo is nice but it takes long time... I actually think it is best without looking at it as the music are just super top... I Love it so much and I love the music on the star field journey the most!

Hey, I really love this demo. Lots of text, but not too much at a time so you don't get overwhelmed by it (unlike in our Squary demo where we didn't manage quite as well...). The starfield is the best I've seen so far as it conveys the movement perfectly. And I think I have seen Mulder somewhere. Anyway, needless to say that the music is wonderful, as that is usually the case when meeting a SIDwave.
I was shocked, though, as I learned from this demo that one f my first scene contacts has died (Intensity).

Thank you, Jan.

Great epic, a real journey. Loved the gyruss feeling straight off and the curving star field. The music really took you along for the ride as the scene intensified with the music.

The General Zod reference gave me a big laugh. And I really liked the tumbling asteroids. Finished nicely with the huge up-scroller.

Great production that dared to be different.

Awesome! :) You surprise me. From a coders point of view, the end scroller was the best. The music is ace too! Hey, it's all ace. Keep up the pace!

Starfield looks great when turning. But why all the turning when travelling to the center of the universe?

Awesome soundtrack with a now trademark style executed by Jan. This is something you can watch at home without the distraction of party mode. Thanks for the journey to the centre, next we will be shown the other side of the universe?

i like this demo. maybe its not perfect material for a compo, because it has its length and lots of text to read (ppl use to be drunk and eventually prefer demos with a faster pace and less text there) - but watching it at home, and listening to the fantastic tune made by jan is a nice experience. keep it up, and dont worry about ending up so low in this very strong competition.
