You did what I failed at miserably: you made a demo with much text and it still is very enjoyable! Extremely well done, polished, lovable, and full of cats. Great art from Lobo, great music, great excuse. I take your promise for Forever very seriously...

Fantastic work! I totally love the whole concept of this demo. It is a first-rate proof you do not need HCL's skills nor Mermaid's talent to produce a memorable release. What you need is some passion, a bit of dedication and a galore of wit. The final outcome will be ravishing, just like "Xcusemo" is. I like every bit of it. Have a great idea and build on top of it, you can be sure the final result will be better than you would have ever anticipated.

Loved this one. A big beautiful demo explaining why there wasn’t time to make a big beautiful demo. An awesome paradox.

Brilliant work.

Purely gfx oriented but I don't mind in this case. Doesn't get boring and surely one of the funniest metademos recently :D
