Interest Konami Games' Fox Engine Pitted Against Real Life
posted on 2012-03-02 11:19 EST by Jennifer Sherman
The game developer Konami posted two sets of images on Friday and asked people to guess which images are real photographs of a Kojima Productions conference room and which are real-time rendering versions created by the studio's Fox Engine.
Clicking on the images on Konami's website reveals that the FOX Engine created the "B" images.
In December, the game developer and Kojima Productions helmer Hideo Kojima posted an image from his "new work" that was created using the Fox Engine. Kojima, best known as the Metal Gear game series director, also posted an image displaying what the FOX Engine's avatar creator can do, noting that it took about one hour to create the avatar.
Kojima announced in September that his new game will utilize the Fox Engine as the underlying game software engine. The designer's new "Project Ogre" title will be set in an open world and provide about 100 hours of gameplay. Kojima Productions, a subsidiary of Konami, launched a recruitment page last month for engineers that will work on the "next" Metal Gear Solid project and "help develop next-gen game engine technology for use with the 'Fox Engine.'"
