Unreal Engine 5 has an impressive demo available now on steam for free for anyone to try. The impressive-looking demo is called the Market of Light.
The studio behind this demo is Japanese Studio Historia, which developed the role-playing game The Caligula Effect: Overdose, among other titles.
The demo is certainly shoer, however, it looks quite good and offers us another glimpse of what it is possible to achieve with Unreal Engine 5, with high-quality assets, dynamic sunlight changes, and more.
This is a short game and tech demo created with the early access build of Unreal Engine 5.
The player is a firefly that collects orbs of light scattered around the market.
Playtime: 15 – 30 minutes
A small-town marketplace seems huge from the perspective of a tiny firefly.
Experience a meticulously rendered world from a micro viewpoint!
Inspired by the excitement of the announcement by Unreal Engine 5, we created this game.
‘Nanite’ handles unlimited polygons, ‘Lumen’, which allows for perfectly dynamic lighting, and the latest visual effect tool, ‘Niagara’.
Even one would have been sensational, but it’s a major event to have all of them come out at almost the same time.
Tech Demo Highlights
Super close-up presentation
Dynamic sunlight changes
Progressive visual effects
Film-quality assets can be used with almost no modification
The 3 colors of light represent Nanite, Lumen, and Niagara.
This game features next-generation representations of these new functions.
We live in an interesting time, a turning point of technology, enjoy it with us!
The Unreal Engine 5 tech demo The Market of Light can be downloaded from Steam for free.
