It’s special because it’s the most thought provoking demo I’ve seen in a long time. First, some administration: Download the demo. It’s about 9.67 MB and 4 minutes in length.
I understand that to run the demos on your computer, you usually need a high-end graphics card and the latest card drivers. You also need to download the demos, which in some cases, can be pretty large.
So I’m delighted to tell you that there are online video hosts for it! I’m actually quite surprised myself. Now you can forget about pesky computer settings and just watch the video for it. Here are two links:
Capped.TV is a video host specifically for demos, and I only just found out about it. Still, running the demo on your computer is the best way to get the full experience.
About the thought provoking part, while you’re watching the demo, ask yourself these questions:
- what is the ribbon seeking?
- what does the black substance wrapping the ribbon represent?
- do you identify with the ribbon, that is, you’re seeking something too?
And the music is awesome. Full of longing and suspense and triumph. You should watch the demo even if it’s only for the music.
