Impressive Unreal Engine Tech Demo; a Deus Ex: HR lab environment built with only two textures

Now this is what I call an impressive tech demo. 3D artist Tor Frick has created an amazing sci-fi lab environment with only two textures. Frick used Epic’s Unreal Development Kit (UDK) and tried to push texture-reusage, without having to rely on alot of different materials. According to the artist, the entire scene uses 2 256*512 textures, one for diffuse and masks, and one for normalmap. The end result is gorgeous and shows how easily artists can overcome technical limitations. In fact, this lab environment will remind you of those in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The difference between them is that this tech demo uses only two textures, whereas Square Enix’s game used a lot of different textures. Simply amazing!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
