    Did you see those shadows at the beginning?! They look awesome! I didn't know the DS could produce those..

    If those are real in-game graphics then that engine is simply amazing, I wonder what these guys could do on a more powerful platform like PC given the right publisher and budget.

    I loved Dementium, the DS has better FPS controls than the 360 and PS3 [​IMG] so I'm really looking forward to Moon.

    And those shadows were possible in games like Banjo-Tooie in the N64 but I doubt the in-game graphics will be able to produce those shadows, I mean, the DS is not as strong, graphically speaking, as the N64 right?

    Looks to be a promising game.

    Isn't the DS actually stronger than the N64?

    I thought so too but I think N64 games had better graphics + texture filtering from what I can remember, maybe the DS has a better processor but the N64 had a better GPU and more memory from what I recall.

    I could be way off though.

    Definitely looks as though it has potential.

    This is clearly a cutscene, but it uses the in-game graphics engine to render it. You can tell it's not a FMV (Dementium used FMV a few times and it was VERY different from the real game engine).

    Reminds me of Metroid Prime.

    Heh, there's a white flashcart, likely an R4 or M3 Simply, in his DS in the vlog. Flashcarts are just popping up everywhere nowadays.

    Well, considering he's one of the developers and it's HIS game, I guess that's totally legal.

    It is already known that Renegade Kid own a DS-X due to the LEDs

    Here is the pic of the back of Jools DS:

    This game looks like it could be awesome. As for that video linked at the top, I agree with Granville, it's obviously a cutscene, yet it's also just the in-game engine with a bit of spit and polish.

    I just hope it's not another horror game, or it could end up being too similar. Though I somehow suspect it will be another experiment gone wrong, or you'll find some mysteriously bloodthirsty alien race.

    I hope it is like Halo or Metroid with online multi-player.
    It doesn't look like a horror, just a Sci-Fi FPS.
    I think that Renegade kid has one of the best engines for the DS. I hope they somehow add AA to the gameplay, that would be awesome.

    The shadows are amazing yes. I'm sure the DS would have no problem doing realistic shadows. One other game at present for DS is doing this as well: Star Wars Clone Wars Jedi Alliance.

    I'm really stunned by the engine in the video. The biggest shock with it is the absence of any frame rate lag. The game (and Dementium before it) goes at a constant 60FPS no matter what. Even N64 games that were at this level of graphics had some bad frame rate issues (Perfect Dark, Banjo Tooie, Dk64 and Conker) It has spectacular lighting, great 3D, and is just overall great looking.

    The game is pure eye-candy. It looks like a PS2 game almost. I love to watch this over and over. This really looks like Metroid Prime and I mean the GAMECUBE version! I think this game proves that the DS can pump out better GFX than N64 if it tries.

    I hope you can drive the moon buggy in 3rd person (or at all). You probably can since the Vlog showed it off for no apparent reason.
