I'm aware there are some black lines when it scrolls, will see if I can fix them....

Did it speed up? While the original pace was a bit quick, it seemed like it got faster toward the end.

Maybe I'm just delirious, considering its 3:40am where I am, but the speed didn't seem very stable, which I think contributed to the 'rushed' feeling. That said, my only other gripe would be the random spinning at the end. Were you going for a news flash kind of feel there?

I wouldn't mind having a bit more time to read the information, I think I'm a fast reader but that was just a bit too fast :).

And I also have to agree with aspidites about the flashes at the end, I would remove them as they tend do confuse.

So, give the viewers more time to read each screen and simply remove the flashing images, I think it would make the video easier to watch and understand.
Rejoice! For very bad things are about to happen.

Thanks...

How much time per info screen would you think is enough?

It seems the screens have a 5 second delay, I believe one or two more seconds would be enough.

First slide needs to be longer.
Is the cloud our official logo?

Last slide is upside down, that was distracting
Don't make it too regular - some slides (more text) can be longer, some (less text) are good as they are. Still it is important to keep it all tightly to the beat, just more like to 8-s or even 16-s, not just 1, 2, 3, 4...
Also you could include some photos of real cards.

Possibly, if I could dream a bit, also few shots in an inn/tavern where the game is played (and smiled girl playing it with a handsom guy).

Music is good, slides are acceptable, mermaid twice in a row was maybe not that good, so maybe mixing something in between would make it better

One more thought - I think we are a bit drafty in terms of how the project operates, yet the sildes look like a solid advertisement. I may be wrong - there are explicit statements that it has to be done, yet still, impression is stronger than that.

Also: include Lackey video capture? Like moving two cards, playing one?

Hrm..... If you mean that it gives an impression we already have a finalized game, then I don't think it's a problem. I fear the contrary: Presenting something that looks like it hasn't even started taking shape, or showing some kind of startup phase. I think we need to signal some kind of progress / stablity / maturity to even attract people to take a look at our site. So sadly, giving the "false" impression here serves our purpose... we compete with a zillion things out there about peoples attention. :twisted:
