Very cool effects in true Triad style, starting with the screen fader. I love it.

Very good demo. The endpart with the dancing Karateka sprite is one the best demoparts all time on the C64.

Top code, great gfx and design, fab music.
Greetings up-scroll is awesome (how You did it? /o\), fisheye scene (cockpit and terrain 'outside') - never saw such before \o/, plus that Poopinsky with hidden faces. The end part, smooth dance, that 3 colour logo, bahhh... Pure awesomeness on one side disk.
Regarding music, Dane's tunes for Triad demos are always better than for BD, IMO ;-)

I love the whole spacy cockpit concept and there are some really mind-boggling effects going on for a 64 but why is it so short? :(

Love the TV-serie with the same name "Continuum". Some wonderful effects and really well glued together with nice transitions. Clearly, Triad is back to provide new candy for all over and over again. Really looking forward to X and see if you got something cooking for that too ;)

Very nice and polished release, but it feels a bit anorganic and cold and didn't grab me by the balls. (Runs fine on 128D-CR!)

Wow! Thanks for all your nice comments!! We love you! Continuum has been a true group effort, involving all active members in one way or another. However, some guys deserve special mention... Ruk, without whom there wouldn't have been a demo at all. Also "newcomers" ilesj and Vent who graced us with their pixels and ideas. And of course, Dane for the awesome soundtrack. And to the rest of the team... cheers!

The basic fader was so cool on the big screen, massive old school game feeling. the 3d shapes do so nice with the music starting there. GAME ON!!!! tunel is nice but love the sourounding graphics to make it even more gameish... greetings scroller... ooohhh... a fluffy one... very cool bobs-spriteplexer... and a voxel landscape that fits the buildup so nicely... data interface, bliss... then the landscape... i meen... wow wow wow, that look so incredibe on my breadbin... and that ribbonish tunnel and perspective move in y... haha then we go on to that insane cool mandelplotter... i must say it rule hard. one of the best such effects on c64 AND amiga combined. scroller image, nice and different in style... hello, it looks awesome. no thrilla... lol... it was... great dancing karate dude... did you animate that so great, wow it is smooth and funny and cool.

Thanx for a great Party and compo... BEPP - next time we will go into more detailed stroies of the past, there are a lot to take from. Love you, you made the funniest sleep eveahhh with that gnome sound. LOL

A few awesome effects in this demo, and everything very well designed. If "Revolved" lacked some heavy fx, they are sure in here..

Great show!

+1 for finally porting this hooded martial artist dancer to C64!

Can't remember if I know him from Amiga or Atari but was considering to bring him to C64 myself, but now I don't have to anymore, what a relief :)
