E3 2012: Square Enix’s Faith and Future Is Luminous


With the next generation of systems approaching just over the horizon the folks over at SquareEnix are getting ready to take them head on.

They surprised the media, putting them in awe and disbelief with theirĀ Agin’s Philosophy tech demo, produced in Luminous Studio. A new game engine that may make Epic, along with its Unreal 4 Engine, go back from which they came from.

Set in a Final Fantasy esque world, it was just jaw dropping, with a hint of Metal Gear 4 atmosphere. Sure there were a few things that just didn’t seem to fit, like the Anglo Saxton dialog clashing with the flower girl sound bites over middle eastern music and gun fire. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a pretty sight to see, but with Squares history with previous tech demos I’ll wait and see till there’s an actual game up and running with this new engine.

And for those who may be curious, it was made with both east and west markets in mind. Allowing developers to make any game they want. Granted this tech will be kept close to home, as only its internal studios will get their hands on it.
