DEMO-RELEASE: DARK RAIN
Winner at Compusphere XIII 2002

Graphics: Laika, Farfar, Maytz
Dark Rain is quite different from most Loonies demos and closer to comon newskool
design, especially the more recent TBL demos, and can be seen as a kind of experiment
in this genre. It is running at a much slower pace than usual and the routines are in general heavier
and thus reducing the framerate. Most of the routines runs in the 18-25 fps range on
the target hardware (060).
It features a hard and dark piece of mp3 music by Substance and we have tried to
keep this dark, a bit industrial, mood from the music troughout the demo.
Most scenes are either big 3D scenes or newer standalone routines like the triple
bumpmapped voxeltwister or the reflection+texture+phong mapped stone, making the
"2D" vs "3D" routine count quite equal.
