Trailer of Project Offset

Trailer of Project Offset

Offset Software released a new teaser of Project Offset in time for the GDC, named Meteor. Intel acquired them last year, but they have yet to confirm the cancellation of the X360 version. Logically they'd want it to stay a PC exclusive, but who knows, so here it is.

Don't try to make sense of Vaporware, just ride with the wave and look at the little "never to be" pretty scenes.

sweet. this is realtime? ingame we are going to have that level of effects?
Commented on 2009-03-27 17:20:37
At least on PC yes, if a game is ever released.

Well it looks good. It has improved even though it looked awesome when it was first reveled.

NICE!!!! Damn having weather change like that midgame, now that would be something....
Commented on 2009-03-27 17:32:52
Absolutely stunning.

I'd actually jump around like a little boy if this was released on the Xbox 360 as well as the PS3. Something tells me this isn't likely to happen though.

They were searching for 360 devs long time ago, so there is still hope for console/s version.

looks fantastic :D

If there is anything to criticize is the fact that bushes clip through the ground, but it looks awesome still.
Commented on 2009-03-27 18:21:45
Those effects are gorgeous, hopfully this means we will see more of this game, its been real hush hush for such a gorgeous looking game.
Commented on 2009-03-27 18:28:46
i hope my GTX295 would be man enough for this game.:)
if not, i'll get a larrabee.

The meteor video is stunning to say the least. This engine is unbelievable knowing that it started with only 3 people. Now that Intel is behind it, I'm hoping this will turn into a real game.

That was before Intel purchased them though. Something tells me the situation has changed since then, as Intel isn't likely to enter the console market anytime soon.

Ah well, I can still hope. :P

Lack of dynamic lighting and shadowing effects too.

HOLY SHIT! I totally forgot about this game!
Commented on 2009-03-27 20:45:59
hmm.. those spell effects would be quite nice in FF XIII

I thought the previous trailers were more impressive. And the trailer that had the first person view (with bow and arrow) on that cliff with that huge eagle, looks incredible.

This, though still awesome, doesn't look quite as impressive. And as the years pass by, the game becomes less and less impressive as other engines play catch-up. 3 Years ago this was almost unbelievable, now it's awesome. In another year or two it'll look good, but won't stand out as it once did. They really need to release this game soon, or it'll be surpassed by others...

It's actually an Indie game and still being made as an Indie game, a team of 2 peoples.

Also worth to mention there was never a CONSOLE version anounced, there where hoever wishes to make one.
Commented on 2009-03-27 21:40:15
And I could say that there was never A GAME... just a game engine on the works and a lot of tech demos. They started do release early "game" screens in the effort to catch a publisher, and... oops: Bought by Intel.

There still isn't a proper game shown.

Interesting…

Those are more than two if you ask me: http://www.projectoffset.com/index.php?option=com_...

And how is a game from a developer acquired by Intel "indie" in any way? – They want to look like that, true, but they are not.
If you ask me they are a testbed for the Larrabee project. I really doubt Intel is really interested in making games… but they need something to show off Larrabee and if they could get into the 3D engine license market all the better.

They announced plans for a 360 version in their FAQ to the game on the old website (deleted along the website redesign), they were looking for staff with Xbox 360 experience and I think there is a post from staff members about it in the forum (could be deleted by now due to many changes on their forums).
That is an announcement for me: To say you are working on something and plan to release it. They said they are working on project offset and plan to release it on PC and Xbox 360.
Of course that’s in the past by now, well you get the gist.
Commented on 2009-03-27 22:16:22
This looks more like an attempt to sell their engine than a game...
Since it was announced all I've seen is tech demos, not a game.
Let wait and see if it really is released
Commented on 2009-03-27 23:18:10
Intel acquired them for a reason: They want an awesome looking game to show off their larrabee videocards, which will compete against Nvidia and AMD (ATi) so an Xbox 360 version is very unlikely to happen.
Commented on 2009-03-27 23:36:25
Awesome footage, reminds me of DOA4 for some strange reason

Realtime my arse. Realtime on a rendering server maybe.

  • alimokrane
    alimokrane RE7 will have health regeneration in Normal difficulty mode... it's slower than easy mode and disabled in madhouse mode. That kind of ruins it for me. Madhouse is a difficuly I would attempt on a 2nd (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth @Tinks: they started screwing over some of their long time 2nd party partners like Argonaut and (to a degree) Rare. (4 Hours ago)

    Tinks during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (9 Hours ago)
