Thanks for the positive comments. Thanks to HCL for making my ideas/design become reality.

An idea that i never shared at the time, was the idea of including a simple to use draw program that would allow the user to draw his or hers own Bob using 3 shades of grey. The Bob would then appear in the demo in place of the default Bob.

@Clarence Strange Day would fit in well with that demo.

Technically interesting and refreshing, showing something I can't remember seeing before, at least in this way. Also kind of pretty, but felt incomplete somehow. Very nice in any case. \:D\

Music and Gfx are brilliant! Hate the bobs as they do not fit in my eyes. Nice terry guilliam style!

The unlimited bobs are nice actually, give you the impression of blending, crystal, refracting the background or something, cause they are using the tile colors from background. Graphics are weird, like a monty python sketch. Interesting little screen.

Nice looking little screen. Feels like a part from Zeros & Ones.

Hm... The image bothers me. It says Mayfair something on one sign and polish fo.. on another. First I was thinking about London and the areas in Mayfair close to Shepherds Market they have that scale, but it doesn't make any sense due to the face of the buildings. Normally the (Georgian) terraced house doesn't come with a gable or frontispiece such as depicted in the classical order. But the feel is very British.

@Matt: This tune was already featured in a near perfect context - check out The Sun by Kjell.

All in all, this is a great and inspiring little piece of demo. A worthy follow-up to previous achievements, WEC.

@Zyron yeh but it's really an awesome tune man. Haven't often heard a composition so atmospheric like this one!
I guess the tune was simply awaiting a demonstration like this.

Otherwise, nice prod.

I really love this.
For some reason this reminds me of Darkseed.
I reckon it's the atmosphere in this little production that grabbed me the most.
