Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy next-gen tech demo took 12 months to make

 

Square Enix spent six months planning, six months creating four-minute "Agni's Philosophy" demo running on new Luminous Engine.

This summer, Square Enix showed off a next-generation Final Fantasy tech demo called "Agni's Philosophy," created using the company's proprietary Luminous Studio Engine. Now, it has been revealed that Square Enix spent an entire year creating the four-minute spot.

 

Kotaku translated a Game Watch report that states Square Enix spent six months planning the "Agni's Philosophy" demo before spending another six months actually developing it.

The Luminous Studio engine is currently in development at Square Enix and is planned to support game consoles, PCs, smartphones, and Web applications.

According to Square Enix, "Agni's Philosophy" is representative of the level of visual quality Square Enix is hoping to achieve with next-generation games. The demo is focused on a magic-wielding heroine name Agni and is set in a near-future world where ancient sorcery and advanced science coexist.

What a joke. Could be a while for a next gen game then.



lol there goes a year of making an actual game.

___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

Pathetic.

No wonder Versus STILL isnt out and XV has been in development for 4 Years.

Hmm...if a 4 minute demo took a year to make, how long would would a game that has, say, 60 hours of content take to make?

4 mins x 15 = 60 minutes. So 15 years for one hour. 15 years x 60 hours = 900 years?

So we're looking at the year 2912 for their first game. This game will be legendary. Hopefully I'm alive by then.

Ya, with all the projects they have in the works, and are WAY WAY off schedule, their time would have been better spent working on the games themselves. Not spending a teams year on a tech demo. Guess Square is really on their way out, and they're doing all they can to milk shit for all it's worth off their brand name before going completely under.

And this Square guy Suzuki wonders why Square Enix is losing money this year.

Mismanagement at it's finest...

Then they wonder why it takes them ages to make Versus.


Seeing how they work, it's actually believable when they said it would take them 10+ years to recreate FFVII in HD visuals.
