Agni’s Philosophy

Genre: Tech Demo
Publisher: Square Enix

AGNI’S PHILOSOPHY (herein referred to as the demo video) was produced with LUMINOUS STUDIO, Square Enix’s game production environment (engine) for creating next generation quality games. The LUMINOUS STUDIO engine is currently in development internally at Square Enix.

Thanks to the LUMINOUS STUDIO engine, the demo video can depict high quality “real time computer graphics” (*1) at the same level as “pre-rendered computer graphics” (*2). The fine details of the characters, who express life-like humanity, are showcased through their rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments. The characters, along with the vibrant monsters, transport the viewer into the world created by the LUMINOUS STUDIO engine.

Furthermore, the demo video production was created through the lens of the FINAL FANTASY series, where ancient magic and advanced science coexist in a near-futuristic world. The video depicts a life-changing encounter for our heroine, the magic-wielding protagonist Agni.

*1 Real time computer graphics showcase images which are created on the spot as time passes. Within a game, in order for users to move their character and shift the camera, real time technologies are required.
*2 Pre-rendered computer graphics are computer images which are created beforehand by a computer and utilized within movies, etc. In games, they are used to display advanced animation which normally requires significant processing power.
