Update 2:

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVX0OUO9ptU&HD=1

Survey: https://form.square-enix.com/a.p/933/

^The above survey asks if you would like to see more of this world/character.























Update:

Video is coming, perhaps tomorrow, maybe sooner. All scenes were apparently shown manipulable in real time.

Leading this endeavor is the creation of a next-generation game engine aimed at delivering multi-platform, cutting-edge games for tomorrow's gaming systems. In order to achieve our goals, we've been looking for the best and brightest talent in the game industry.

Thanks to our recruiting efforts, which began last year, we've seen an influx of excellent developers not only from within Japan, but from various corners of the world as well. We've become a very international team, with about 30% of our members coming from outside of Japan.
I'd like to stress that Japanese language proficiency is not a requirement; if you think you have the right skills and are able to communicate in either English or Japanese, don't hesitate to contact us.

In addition to our work on the game engine, we're also very excited about the development of our accompanying DirectX 11-based tech demo, Philosophy. We're looking for talented individuals to push graphics technology to its limits in the production of this groundbreaking demo.

Lastly, we also have openings for researchers interested in using their academic ability to support existing game engine technology, and to help guide the next generation of entertainment technology that will be enjoyed by millions.

If you have a passion for games and game engine development and would like to put your skills to the test, we'd love to hear from you. I'm sure you'll find both rewarding challenges and a satisfying and exciting experience.

Seeking the Best

I hope that girl is FFXV's protagonist... or something. She looks... different from usual FF heroes/heroines. Or maybe it'll be like all tech demos... *sigh*

It's a Final Fantasy tech demo using their 'next gen' engine

Apparently the engine cuts development costs/time

Square Enix has a license for Geomerics' lighting engine, so it might be that.

It's the same thing used in BF3.

Don't worry, it's just a tech demo, it wont turn into anything.
I like that for KH's 10th Anniversary and FF's 25th Annniversary, all we get are tech demos and a cake. :p

This is basically a new team they hired specifically to make a new engine to speed up development.

They seem quite competent at their jobs, but the question is if the developers they're giving it to will be. :P

But Versus XIII was mostly shown behind closed doors before giving any real video to the public.
