Red 5 to License the Offset Engine
Red 5 Studios and Offset Software have reached an agreement where Red 5
Studios will license the Offset Engine for use in Red 5 Studios’ upcoming
massively multiplayer online game (MMO) title.
“Offset Software’s next generation graphics are simply stunning,” said Mark Kern, President and CEO of Red 5 Studios. “And Offset’s content creation tools will enable Red 5 Studios to add real-time cinematic quality to our game world.”
The Offset Engine promises to bridge the gap in quality between real-time and pre-rendered graphics by using new technology which combines effects elements with unified lighting, shading, and shadowing. It has also been designed around the goal of reducing development time and cost, while still giving designers and artists with the tools they need to create spectacular visual effects and immersive environments.
Red 5 Studios will be demonstrating the Offset Engine at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Jose, California, March 20 - 24, 2006.
