Great job.

Some extra touches that make this really good in my opinion include the timing with the music (it ends as the music ends) and the fact that the cubes are chamfered. The lighting is nice too, very convincing.

How the fook do you manage to get Kez to do artwork for you? Mel is allegedly a classicly trained musician and I can't even get her to write me a chip tune! Seriously, what a fun and refreshing demo :) That's got to be top 3? :)

I say something like "I bet you've forgotten so much Maya you can't even draw me a cube with rounded edges". :D

I had to generate the textures myself - infact, if you look closely at startup you can see the last texture at the top left just before the main show starts.

Thanks everyone for all the comments!

Wow, that has to be first place! I could quite easily see it used for credits in a videogame or film. Maybe the next toy story film (yes, there's going to be a 3rd one).

I see you haven't gotten rid of the pumpkin yet!  ;)

Edit, btw, Alt-Enter for full screen mode, V to release V-sync, F for fps counter (bars are 10fps apart).
