Another great story demo with our favorite blockheads. Romeo again has a message, although one from the Dire Straits like some people brought to our attention.
Tight, uncomplicated and angular artistic gfx with a good SID on top.

Nothing beats 1 Mil LY from Earth for me though. It felt like a mil years ago, a mil years away, with a vast and deserted high tech city save a few robot blockheads. The SIDs perfectly set the mood.

Very artistic and clean. Good flow, accompanied by a great soundtrack. This proves that a demo is not all about breaking the most records. Thumbs up!

Excellent story telling demo from Hollowman and friends. That robot character is somewhat facsinating. Combined with the lyrics and the music this makes an outstanding piece of melancholic art, with a touch of social critism.

All you need is black and white. And block-Romeo, the delegate for melancholy. 10/10

Superb indeed! As always with Hollowman/Puterman demos : a good concept and good design. However, the concept sometimes spoils nice routines. Jaw-dropping routines are often very quickly displayed, while simple graphics gets a lot of the show time. This also goes for demos like "Postcards from STHLM" and "One million lightyears from Earth".

It's not really obvious what you did in this product, Oxidy: But since the internal problems we where faced with earlier this year... I'm glad that you are finally fit inside a general "thinking" inside of the group and not doing monsters and stuff... /James

mmmh, after looking at it again, i think its a well deserved 4th place. i dig this style too, but demo is not only about style and story, imho.

now this is one of the best scene poetry I've ever seen on any platform. What I'm missing is another manhood style demo which manages at the same time being funny self ironic and sad. :)

As I said to Hollowman at the party, he's good at making demos out of 'romantic stuff'. Couldn't decide if this one, Der Gummel or Wild Bunch is my favourite, and still can't.
Concerning the music, I made it back in 2001, covering an instrumental tune from the eighties.

This demo has a great spirit. I was pretty sure that I'd see Romeo in the top three.

I'm torn between this one and the TWB demo for my x2006 favorite. Will need to check them both out again tomorrow ..

This is a brilliant demo. Really brilliant. I want to see more stuff like this. I love and adore the use the vectorpeople vs people in reality. I love that much is in strict b/w hires. Somewhere deep inside, I wish I had made this.

A nice routinely release, quite a bit of recycling but pleasurable anyway. Great to see Oxidy back to such activity after joining FLT.

So once again im falling in love, another top notch production by a team of devoted Kalsongdata-people.

Simple ideas, yet fulfilling the very needs for a brilliant demo.

Thumbs up, Apes!
