Twoflower: Indeed you have. I didn't create this entry... I've fixed the credits now.

Oh, and could that be because you *are* a naïve socialist utopist? =)

Hmm, didn't I have a tune in this demo aswell? And I still like the naive utopist socialist propaganda-style.

Some Parts are superflous, other are very good. I like Sierpinsky-Triads.

Nice old school type stuff, but seems to me like it tried to hard to be like the Morfar demos and missed by a long way

Triad are to the best of my knowledge not explicitly leftist, other than that they used quite a lot of communist imagery back in the day to piss Strider/FLT off. I guess the communist imagery in this demo should be viewed more as one of several comments on the state of the world, just like in Red Storm. Just because you show a symbol doesn't mean you automatically promote its ideology.

Tao: let's call it plain naiveness then, unless the first part is irony. If a demo is called Revolution, made by a "leftist" group Triad, with red all over it (ok, just on the background), then yes, I connect the ideas presented in the first part's text to socialism/marxism/communism/overall-leftism, especially when a Triad-logo is floating at the Center of demonstrating revolutionaries, who are holding flags on a red background =) And the star-image doesn't help either. Or maybe I need to watch this demo again...

Realy loved the oldschool feeling in most of the parts. Didn't care much for the texts tough.

Hollowman: the graphics that weren't as good as the rest was probably the ones I made myself. Or maybe you mean your own creations? =)

a nice mellow watch, i like how tao makes demos in what feels like a true triad style. only let down was that some of the gfx werent as good as the rest, and that not all texts were that interesting

Finally a demo that made me intrigued and that I happily loaded up once more, when I was done watching it for the first time. Great Work !!!!

TDJ: I spent almost the entire BFP working on this demo, but didn't manage to fix the loader in time. Good thing too, since the extra week allowed me to add Revonotion too.

The reason this demo isn't really coherent is because it was created through short bursts of activity spread over a time-span of 12 years.
User Comment

Somehow it feels like this demo & Tao's contribution to BFP have been switched .. Anyway, some nice stuff but like said below, didn't feel like a unity. Political messages swapping places with mathematical figures?

Tempest: Naïve socialist utopism? My, you're really missing the target. By a wide margin. Try again, and shoot more Center (pun intended).

A bit fragmented but some parts are really nice!

Classic Triad-stuff with naive socialist utopism. Glad to hear Twoflower's laid back funk tune "Deranged" used in a demo.
User Comment

Too much blabla, slow and the seperate parts didn't form a unity.
Missed opportunity, imo.

Anyway, nice to see Tao back in the scene tho.
