Project IM Revealed

Zero Point Software (thanks Gamecloud and Frans) has a teaser movie and five screenshots up for Project IM, a futuristic shooter that will use the Unreal 3 Engine. There's a bit about this (in English) on French site Nofrag:

Shortly, I can inform you that "Project IM" is a next generation AAA, FPS computer game currently in the pre-development phase, and in negotiation with publishers and investors.

We have chosen Epic Games Unreal 3 engine for the next phase.

I'm sorry I cannot be more informative at this stage.

Not that I'm trying to defend epic, but I seem to remember them saying UE3 is an engine targeting video cards with an assload of texture memory(512+ to get the most out of it). Wasn't the first nvidia 7800 512 meg only recently released?

If so, is it not a safe assumption that any showings of UE3 in action would have to have been on video cards that the game isn't primarily targeting, and likely needed the textures scaled down in order to even run at all without horrible texture swapping? They can easily take screenshots at max resolution despite the game possibly not being playable on current hardware at that level. I don't think I'd go so far as to call bluff on the engine because of it. It's a next gen engine after all, and it will be a while before people will be able to run it at max settings. It's not like the Brother in Arms: EIB CGI movies they show on TV as if that's what the game looks like. Don't know, maybe I have a little too much faith in Epic, but I just prefer to look at things from a different perspective I guess.
