    While Shinra Technologies can stream retail games, the company plans on utilizing cloud computing to create new types of games. Space Sweeper, which is also playable during the technical beta, is a twin stick shooter where each screen is part of a massive MMO-scale world. The Living World, a tech demo with 16,000 of dragons flying in a 32 km by 32 km, is also available to see. The Living World is run on one of Shinra Technologies’ supercomputers which holds over one million trees in memory while calculating terrain deformation and procedurally-generated fluid physics in real time.

     

    If you’re in the Kansas City metropolitan area you can sign up for the beta here.
