Cryostasis Vista Tech Demo

A tech demo for Cryostasis, an atmospheric shooter set on a nuclear ice-breaker and released by 1C Company, can be found from NVIDIA’s Graphics Plus Power Pack #2 . Though the requirements indicate otherwise, the tech demo only works with Vista, on a Shader Model 4.0 DirectX10 card.



Since Valve’s Hardware Survey already revealed how only 21.43% of us are Vista-equipped1, it would seem, then, that the company simply wants to illustrate the engine’s raw ability. Fortunately for us philistines, reports from Russia - where Cryostasis is already out! - confirm that the game works even with mid-range graphic cards (including those equipped with SM2.0, 3.0 and 4.0) as well as on good ol’ Windows XP.

The game is slated for a February 2009 release date in the English-speaking world, which also leads us to recall Hydrophobia, which is scheduled for a March 2009 release. Does this mean the top one cause for our most recent watery nightmares will be slugged out in a clash of titans?
