Cryogenia (1996, 02.11, AGA 4MB HD Multifile)
Review by Glenn Lunder
Yowzers, this was truly a positive surprise! A first production from an unknown group rarely come up to these standards! This demo was written on and for 060-based machines, though it runs perfectly fine on any 020+ system with enough fast memory. Keeping this in mind, it's almost a given that it's not very fast on anything but a 060... I'm sorry, low-spec people, but if visuals like these are the tradeoff, then I'd better start considering a new machine right away! What we're given here may not be terribly fast on my machine, but GOD does it look GOOD! There's a 3d engine here that's to die for, and plenty of other cool stuff to look at! The endpart with the spiralling green bumpmap tunnel thing in the background was AWESOME. And I haven't even begun telling you about the music! It starts off like so many other tunes for the demos of today, but soon picks up an identity of itself...and a ton of groove!
I hereby FULLY RECOMMEND this. I'm looking forward to what these guys will do next! With talent like this, the Amiga scene is far from dead!
