I must have watched this one about 20 times already, which never happened before with a 4k. Therefor, a classic 5/5 without any hesitation.
Positive points: well, actually almost everything. Especially the soundtrack is bloody fantastic. Love the new sounds in there, apart from that one higher and nasty sounding thingie. Visuals are brilliant, as always. I really like the 'stripe' effect overlaying the screen, an effect used in many ephidrena releases. Favourite parts have to be the first mountain flight, especially the way it starts with that cool sound (the low bang sound) and the camera moving slowly to reveal the mountains. Don't know if it was intentional, but this part works well without any drums in the tune. Gives it a bit of a special mystery feeling, with that foggy look and all. Really atmospheric.
2nd favourite moment is the 2nd flight over the mountains, the fast one after the 2nd voxel part. And especially the way that it's buidling up to that part with the tune...and suddenly...wooossshhh...we fly away. Just like a rollercoaster...going up slowly, reaching the top and then let loose...
Pity that the voxel camera is only one direction. But maybe for a next 4k. And that fading to red from Respirator Stories could have worked here too i think.
Anyway, bloody impressive intro and nice to watch (which isn't always the same).
To the Ephidrena crew: What happened with your demo from Solskogen? I'm restless you know... knowing that a Ephidrena demo was released and that i haven't seen it yet? Where is it?

OMG! 4k on Amiga are getting closer to perfection day by day, lately! ;)
I suspect one day we'll see a 4k with the same fx we used to see in 4mb prods once!!! 8)
Loady 4 president!!! ;)

Damn. I will always get shocked what can be put into Amiga-4k intro. That's the reason I still have this nice piece of hardware.

I really hope that Loaderror will release another 4k in the future. I mean, this 4k was so different and cool, ground-breaking even. I'd love to see where Loaderror goes from here. Come on Loaderror :)

And I hope Loady will fix his lousy 4k startup code one day so I don't have to disable my gfx card each time I wanna see an EPH 4k. :)
Anyway, the intro is good but far too boring.

I love loaderror's music! the clouds and mountains are simply great...
@loaderror: yeah, please fix it! You'd better take some beers with Kiero ;-)

I showed this intro to a friend lately, who used to own an Amiga years ago and his only comment was: "It's kind of boring...". Maybe I should kick his nuts for this some day.
My comment: Awesome!

This is one great intro. Respect to EPH.

7 years passed and this is still my favourite 4k intro! Especially in the music department, oh my what a tune, it's a fantastic work from Loaderror! Respect.
