This demo was the comeback from The Black Lotus after main coders Offa and Equalizer left the Amiga scene in 1997, with Rubberduck and Dig-it taking over on the coding. And what a comeback it was! This demo looks so good from start to finish and it is just so polished. The atmopshere is dark and depressing (as seems to be the case with most demos from Rubberduck).

I hesitated on giving it a 5/5 but i didn't because for me, it lacks a bit of energy and speed. The pace is maybe a bit too slow. But a brilliant demo nonetheless.

Best tbl demo ever! This one has great style all the way. Unlike some of the new prods who seem to be more "thrown together at great speed" :)

i must agree with Loaderror!

Magia and Little nell suxx ;-)

After seeing it some more, i changed my mind. A fantastic demo which deserves the 5/5.

comment by heetach on 19 February 2004

I still think this is the most consistent production ever seen from tbl (along with imitation none), and they still haven't managed to surpass it later (that is when it comes to style, although they have technically). I's ambient, stylish and well-composed. Definately deserves my 5/5.

TBL's best. A masterpiece.

comment by Frequent on 04 April 2004

There's nothing to complain about in this demo. Classic!

comment by azzaro on 10 May 2004

music is great and the mood is cool but the effects....hmmm

comment by corial on 08 September 2005

A fabulous piece of work. It looked amazing on the bigscreen, and it was a huge surprise for me that it didn't win the compo comfortably, since it was superior in every aspect in comparison to the other demos.

comment by bonkers on 29 October 2006

Incredible music, great ambient atmosphere and very stylish effects. The part just after the credits looks especially good, the meta-balls in this demo is probably also the first good looking ones on amiga.

Sad, but well done.

harddisk cleanup equals more screenshots for this superb moody TBL demo.
