At E3, Square Enix unveiled a Real-Time Tech Demo of Final Fantasy called “Agni’s Philosophy.”
Agni’s Philosophy (herein referred to as the demo video) was produced with Luminous Studio, Square Enix’s game production environment (engine) for creating next generation quality games. The Luminous Studio engine is currently in development internally at Square Enix.
Thanks to the Luminous Studio engine, the demo video can depict high quality “real time computer graphics” (*1) at the same level as “pre-rendered computer graphics” (*2).
The fine details of the characters, who express life-like humanity, are showcased through their rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments. The characters, along with the vibrant monsters, transport the viewer into the world created by the Luminous Studio engine.
While the Luminous Studio works looks beyond amazing, the true question is what Square Enix title will be given the first opportunity to use this new engine.
More information will be revealed in the later months. Until then, keep an eye out over at http://www.agnisphilosophy.com/
