Great demo with a message, but I wonder if the side-scrolling blocks are buildings or tombstones.

Top notch! Especially the parallax aeroplanes. Fuckings though for not having the dropping bomb go down in the lower border!

I know I didn't vote this best in the compo, and couldn't really remember much about it apart from the boat at the end... strange because on re-watching I remember some really nice effects - the dominoes (stunning), the plane flattening the city (neat), the 3d parallax, the waves... so I wonder if it's just because it ends abruptly that I forgot.

But anyway... nice work, and yeah, I think this maybe did deserve to be first place even though I didn't vote that way on the night.

Secret song BAD! Argh! - I'd never heard it before but I had to look it up and listened to the original. Now it's stuck in my head and won't go away! Hehe.

Anyway... thanks for the great demo! Good work!

nice demo in all its usual industrial/vectorporn-hollowmanishness accompanied with a neat tune.
gotta ask zabu for the hidden ikea tune, as i don't want to publically admit that i didn't find the hidden part.

The last part is by far the best one. Overall good demo, with good conceptual design and streamlined presentation. Enjoyable! The secret 'Boten Anna' tune is a really good cover.

Damn,can I have that -disregarded- projector used in the compo?
The demo looked much better on it.

Anyway,cool demo with a good,if somewhat egocentric, advice..
Excellent hidden music,mission accomplished! ;)

Still,not my favorite from BFP anymore..

this was a nice and fast flowing demo for me. The physics animations are surely nice and the music kicks ass. I like hollowman's sense of flow in his demos.

I found it damn refreshing to watch a demo so different from the rest.
Visuals are on the edge of design vs crappy, but thankfully lean into the direction of design most of the time.
And yes, physics in a c64 demo is great. :]

I'm sorry but this one did not came through for me. I'm left with the impression that it could have been much better. The last part aroused some technical questions in me to add some compliments. Jackasser's routines could do more than they were used to. (yea ze coder has spoken)

Nice tune and a nice demo in general!

I mean, can a demo with a "Boten Anna" cover loose? Probably not. It made me smile, for sure. :)

I havent seen/heard the hiddenpart, only the 'original' annabot tune. But, it sounds like an answer from the book. Guess the subject has more to it than 64k. Thats why I only like the use of effects, the content doesn't do me much. (How can it? I've never been in a war, not even a scenewar)

if its ruined by the hidden part, then so much the better. building up, knocking down..

That 'Annabot' is a silly tune. If there is a meaning to the demo, and it somehow looks that way, it's definately ruined by that tune.

Neat! I'm not qualified to (dark ;-) judge the demo into detail, but I liked the smooth transition of story and effects. And who's that new musician? I see this nick for the first time. The tune isn't specially my taste, but ficts perfectly to the demo mood. Thumbs up dudes!

I really liked this one! A demo with a theme that works the whole way from the beginning to the end, now that is something you don't see every day! Very nice use and selection of effects.

The end tune is totally great, it really reminds me a lot of fm synthesis music, which next to SID composing is the way of true computer music. Feel the vibes..

the tune at the end is hidden, i asked frantic to reveal it during the compo since i enjoy it, and judging by the whistling afterwards so did atleast a few other ;)

Great demo. Good music. I loved the effects. Quality stuff. Keep up the good work Hollowman & rest of crew :)

i expected propaganda and got subtle food for thought instead. superbly executed piece of a demo, with the tune that both fits the atmosphere & is stunning as a standalone one (the snares oh the snares).

Very nice demo but you should have left out that damn horrible Boten Anna tune at the end. I really hate it & it ruined the demo.
