Was it a glimpse of next-gen? Medieval RPG maker responds

Robert Purchese:

Yesterday I wrote about a tech demonstration video from a PC and next-gen consoles project, a medieval RPG. Given its target platforms we billed it as a possible glimpse of the future, a glimpse of next-gen.

Turns out it was running on a two year old laptop with a mobile GeForce 555M - rubbish! - although the scenery was an example of an environment from the game.

The medieval RPG belongs to small (24 person) Czech developer Warhorse Studios, led by Mafia (game series) key person Daniel Vavra. The video appeared the internet much to his surprise and gained an "unexpected" amount of attention, and so he felt compelled to explain a thing or two. (Daniel Vavra, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Warhorse, Xbox 360)

GeForce 555M? Wow.
lol 2 year old lappies are ready compete with next gen consoles! times have changed and tech is getting better even faster. so imagine a 2014 laptop. Will run this like nothing. Also since nvidia will have their first APU in 2014 with a gforce card will be very nice.

Wish I knew what was so funny.

Article summary: "We shot our wad over a tech demo that doesn't look nearly as good as we let ourselves think it did. Oops."

It's the lightening that stands out. Other than that, can't say there is much to look at.

impressive. They obviously have some talent in that group of 24 people.
