Bright Memory: Infinite | Exclusive RTX Gameplay Reveal Trailer

Noob question, but is there like an on/off switch for RTX on PC? Or are they just comparing videos with and without a RTX? In other words I assumed the RTX is plug-and-play/automatic, not something that you can manipulate within a PC once installed

you can switch it off - you wouldn't make someone with an rtx2060 force it on.
can usually switch it on ad hoc, so if you want to hit 120fps 4k you can just have raytraced GI and leave it off for reflections/shadows/etc.

It will be a setting in the game/game engjne. I think it's a UE game and nvidia have worked on making their products easily accessible via UE.
 
Footage looks amazing. The same questions were asked about Flight Simulator on Series X and that turned out great.
Yeah but Flight Simulator is from a relatively much larger team and Microsoft was more directly involved in helping its production. The team on BMI is much smaller and I get the feeling Microsoft are a bit more hands-off with direct assistance, but I'm only assuming that due to where the development team is located.

In any case I'd still like to see it running on a Series X in the near future, but you're right the game itself looks great. Did from the first time I saw it at the May event last year tbh.

Thanks. So its only an in-game option, not a whole-system option. I have an RTX 3070, I assumed it was “on” but I haven’t explored the general pc settings or anything.

Dude why is this ten dollars? Am I missing something? The game looks like an awesome mix of Bulletstorm, Shadow Warrior, and Doom, is it as fun as it looks? I might pick this up.

Sort of. I did a little bit of digging when it blew up the internet a year ago. From what I gathered this is a one-man project (by a talented Chinese guy).. That's not a bad thing per se in itself, but in the end this is arguably a shallow short (I think the story is ~1-2 hours worth?) and cheesy but flashy mess. Some refuse to call it a game but a demo. I don't know what has happened since though, so the reports might be outdated.

Fair enough. I may buy it then, just thinking of it as a ten dollar bench mark for GPU's that's actually playable. In other words, the same reason why I paid 7.50 for Crysis 3 years ago lol.
