Nauseating, but I mean that in a good way. This story gets you thinking.
The human mind can be disturbing. Food for shrinks.

Revisited this just the other day. It's damn good! If only Hollowman could spend 100% of his time on this machine instead of real life boring stuff.. we want more! :D

This is the best story based demo on the C64. I always liked both themed and story based demos and wished there were more of them.

This allways leaves me with no feelings at all and I don't know if I like the feeling of having no feelings, and that is good.
This is a good contrast against regular effect driven code porn demos.
Surely I will enjoy this demo every time i watch it, again and again.

I was at LCP when this demo was competing and it surely wasnt a crowdpleasing kind of winner demo. I voted this second, but just a few weeks after the party I watched this again and I really have to say I changed my mind. This demo is a true masterpiece from Hollowmans mind. I love personal demos that has a bit of a introvert feel, and this one is very interesting. Even non data people get impressed, the graphics and music would carry it alone. If you look for the odd artsy demo with a message, you will fry this onto a floppy and paint it with a special colour.

Just great. I seldom like demos thoroughly. There is always something I get kinda disturbed by, but this one made it.

It is coherent. It sticks. And that's what's missing in every other LCP2005 release.

Very good stuff! I really like that Frankie Goes to Hollywood reference and the car animation.

I didn't like the music at the compo, but today it feels a lot more solid. Yet another Hollowman trademarked demo. Could have used one or two more effects, but on the other hand, the subtlety are a large part of these demos.

Eerie and nauseating. I don't know if I should run from you or hug you Hollow.

The darkly beautiful work of an autistic, damaged child. Good.

Let's not hope this is Hollowman's autobiography ;-)
Anyway, me like!
