Project Flare Is Square Enix’s Entry Into Cloud Gaming



Square Enix has a plan for cloud gaming services, but aren’t going to stream games like Gaikai or OnLive. Project Flare leverages cloud processing power to handle game calculations. One tech demo using Deus Ex: Human Revolution as a base shows how Project Flare can be used for physics processing when a screen is filled with different objects.



A Final Fantasy XI concept movie has separate windows that shows the perspective of other members in your party.



That’s a neat idea, but this is just a tech demo for now. Square Enix is looking to partner with other companies and turn this technology into a service. Ubisoft is one of the Project Flare partners and the two developers are collaborating on Project Flare.
