@Jucke Seems like both King Fisher and yours truly share a passion for Roger Waters lyrics :)
@Jak T Rip Why the title? Because it sits well with the concept.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Woa... love the smoothness and all, what a great ride! There is only one thing that could be improved: the cube in the end should be a rubic cube solving itself ;) Apart from that... erm, why the name?

I also noticed that this demo contains text that seem familiar from Red Storm by Triad. :)

Didnt see this until now but wow, im just stunned. Thats a piece of demo poetry. I love how everything jerks and transitions to the music and it all just feels so fresh and sparkly new in style somehow. This is the kind of shit im longing for when i moan about demos being unoriginal and the old same same. Straight ten.

probably the best overall design from the compo, music gfx and code live together at all times with nice transitions and pacing.

I´m afraid I was Square and dropped the Ball. I couldn´t deliver a 3D Pyramid on time.

Knut, Archmage and Linus, I am in awe of what you three guys have achieved here!

I´m sure you can do that Knut. ^^

Thanks, guys. We're really happy you enjoyed it. Please note that Bjørns finger-pyramid part is not animated. He spent a lot of time coding it :). And I knew you would be a bit disappointed, Axis. Let's try to fix that next time :).

Outstanding graphics, music and design here. I hate to say that the fx are too much based on anims for my taste. Even tho the colorful ribbons and the plasma sphere twist are really cool.

Blody hell one man code army! how is this even possible 2 full disk sides around 17 parts alone in the dark ;) Archies graphics.. it was like looking at a Shape demo.. if it hasn't said Fossil I would have thought it was Shape ;) amazing .. that landscape amongs many other things.. blew me away.. so stylish so much content .. but without a doubt as coders between I am most impressed by you Knut! to pull this off.. ofcoz Archy hats off , you graphics is out of this world, and Linus your music is also out of this world.. so all in all I think this whole demo is out of this world each of you participating in it ;) and ofcoz Björn too... (Mooooooooooonray) ;) even your old handle is out of this world 8)=) you guys ........ are aliens?

This is just perfect. I wish more demos will adapt this way of storytelling in the future. That's the ingreient which makes a demo into more than the sum of its parts.

@Xiny6581: There were so many great demos on X that it was already a pain in the ass to vote for so many good ones. You can't give to all a straigt 10. It was really damn hard to judge... However I love it !!!
