Project Offset GDC video

Project Offset GDC video

The Offset team has finally released the trailer that was being shown at GDC 2006, showing a dragon standing on a cliff. Impressive stuff, and as other developers are starting to get their hands on the engine maybe we don't have to wait to like 2009 before we see it running on our TVs.
Update: 720p and 1080p(!) versions added.

As always looks nice hard to believe a small team of 6 guys I think created this engine.

Gonna have my eyes open for this one.

i like it, looks great, there has only to be created a good game around that engine.

Can't wait to see how games will look when using this engine. BTW wheren't the guys of project offset making a game also?

Nice dragon. The rock is lacking in the old polys though. What kind of system is tghis designed to run on?PC or new console?
Commented on 2006-04-24 17:03:27
Nice! Is that supposed to run on xbox 360 and ps3?
Commented on 2006-04-24 17:16:48
hopefully whoever publishes this brings it to the 360

Ok you got the good engine, where the hell is the game?
Commented on 2006-04-24 18:27:23
It's funny, you can actually donate $ on their (Project Offset) website. I think that this is currently PC only, but one of the lead programers has mentioned the they are talking about next gen consoles...

Looks really good , would like to play it ..
Commented on 2006-04-24 19:08:56
Stunning ..

The level of detail in this and BIA3 look like they could be mistaken for CGI graphics..
Commented on 2006-04-24 20:18:54
It'll never look like that when it's used in an actual game. As with all the previous Offset demos, this one concentrates on ONE thing.
Commented on 2006-04-24 20:24:26
Uh, we still don't know if this game is coming to 360, I don't know why have this as news for a 360 game.
Commented on 2006-04-24 21:28:04
I've been lookin forward to this game for awhile.
Commented on 2006-04-24 21:57:03
In one of the interviews........

The developers VERY specifically say this is running on current gen hardware. I think they said they used a 6800GT gpu.

This is awesome!

Can't wait to see some gameplay vids, using this engine.

this is just the engine, which would be licensed to any developers interested to use it.

Weren't the demonstrations being shown of a game they were developing?

Commented on 2006-04-25 17:43:10
this video is pretty old, but very impressive.
Commented on 2006-04-25 17:43:16
Yes they bare working on an engine that is going to be used in their own FPS RPG titel.
Commented on 2006-04-25 17:45:10
I loved the demo, but I won't even bother downloading the 720p version as it plays like a slide show on my computer.
Commented on 2006-04-25 19:14:23
wow, 1080p? Im going to download this again just for the sake of it.

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: 1080p to 4K scales well because it's exactly 4X. You don't get that typical scaling blur. (33 minutes ago)
  • Executioner_UK
    Executioner_UK Only downside and regret i have is having a curved screen.. but that changes next friday when i pick up new "flat" Samsung UHD.. (48 minutes ago)
  • Executioner_UK
    Executioner_UK @bleachedsmiles: i can assure you bud.. as a 4k tv owner there is NO downside in hooking up your consoles.. defeatable upscaling in game mode allowing for native on most mid to high end with hdmi 2.0 (51 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite To me he was making points on not just Battlefront, but particular peeves I have with how the industry has went these days. Plus $120 for a fucking game?! Jesus Christ. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Yeah, I don't usually watch him, but I didn't mind that one. He'd plenty to say on it, and every point he made was bang on. He wasn't his usual OTT schtick either. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i agree with what he's saying though. the game isn't interesting enough to pay double the amount for more content. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Game design taking a backseat in favour of capitalising on the licence and the quick sell. The industry as we know it today. Oh, and the selling of games in chunks! Fuck off! (1 Hour ago)
