Two new mouthwatering screenshots of Project Offset

After nearly a year of little to no updates, it would appear that the first-person fantasy Project Offset would be lost in the vaporware chasm of power-hungry software, forever ill-suited for a common man's gaming rig. Nevertheless, these two new screenshots suggest it's on the same warpath as Far Cry: "You're gonna buy a better computer when we say so." You have to see the sick textures on these screenshots. Indeed, PC gaming is definitely not dead.

While they don't reveal much, the progress meter suggests we're going to start seeing a lot more of this game into the year. If you haven't done so already, treat yourself to the 90-meg demo movies on ProjectOffset.com.  I'm really looking  forward to it, as there are few next-gen games that touch these demo videos (cough Killzone cough). Then again, I remember being this excited about Doom 3 and you all know how that story ended.

Also notable -- this binary was hidden in the source code:

01100001 01100100

It was translated to "Almost There Thanks For Helping! - Esp. Warsaw and SkateHead".  I used to write letters like that to my grandfather. He hated me.

Two crazy high-res screenshots attached, first spotted on Digg.
