Virtual Intelligence

Review by Glenn Lunder

This HZ demo shows some technically competent coders doing advanced stuff with vectors. Unfortunately, it's not really very entertaining. There's lots of (for its time) innovative stuff here, but it falls into that old effect-text-effect trap. Sometimes, it works (like in The Silents' "Global Trash"). Most of the time, though, it doesn't. Some of the stuff you get to see is texturemapping, animated texture-mapping, sphere vectors... You get the picture. The music is adequate, though - but then again it should be, when it's by Danko!
