Tokyo-based developer Silicon Studio is well known among gamers for their games like Bravely Default and 3D Dot Game Heroes, but they’re even better known among game developers for their middleware solutions and engines.

Today they officially announced the “next-gen” engine “Mizuchi,” which is still under development, but will be soon made available to developers.

In order to better show off the power of the new engine, the studio released an absolutely spectacular tech demo, which you can see below, alongside a gallery of screenshots. The demo uses Mizuchi paired with Silicon’s newly released optics middleware Yebis 3. The new engine also makes heavy use of physically based rendering.

You can check out all the assets released below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
