Unity has released Book of the Dead; a first-person interactive story showing off the graphical prowess of the popular graphics engine, which can be compiled and run on your PC.
As DSOG reported, “Book of the Dead demonstrates what is possible when using Unity 2018’s new Scriptable Render Pipeline, which provides enhanced customizability of Unity’s rendering architecture, putting more control in the hands of the developers. This project is built on the new High-Definition Render Pipeline template shipping with Unity 2018 and various powerful customizations enabled by the SRP. Moreover, all of the natural environment assets in the demo are photogrammetry-scanned real-world objects and textures. The majority of them come from Quixel Megascans, a publicly available library of high-quality scanned assets, which is used widely by high-end game production and film VFX professionals alike”
You can explore the highly detailed environments in a first person perspective and the game teleports you to different locations by means of cinematic transitions. It is currently unknown that whether the game based on this demo has been cancelled or not.
