Unity's latest interactive demo is an impressive technical showcase

Tech a look.

Game engine Unity continues to shake off its humble origins with a new interactive demo designed to demonstrate exactly what it can do.

This technical showcase is the work of the team behind 2016's Adam short film, which told the story of a humanoid robot awaking from a Matrix-like pod before being put to work by evil human overlords.

This is Book of the Dead:

Of course, most Unity games do not look like this - few games do. But there's little doubt that, in the right hands, Unity is a powerful tool.

"The project is built on the new High-Definition Render Pipeline template shipping with Unity 2018 and various powerful customisations enabled by the SRP," Unity's description explains.

"A preview of the High-Definition Render Pipeline is coming soon to 2018.1 public beta.

Recent big-name games built using Unity include Cuphead, Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Yooka-Laylee, as well as Nintendo games Snipperclips and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

The trailer is "representative of the actual gameplay experience", Unity concluded.
