Intel buys Offset Studios
Intel recently announced that it has acquired Offset Studios, the game development company behind the rather impressive Project Offset, a fantasy first person shooter created by a team of three. Announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Project Offset features graphics and gameplay akin to games that a major studio would produce. Announced a little over two years ago, it has been said by the studio that they would be looking into a Mac client.
Project Offset makes use of some rather impressive graphical effects, from cinema-quality particle effects and state of the art rendering and shading techniques.
Offset Studios now consists of 13 staff members who are working on Project Offset.
