Faced with accusations of forgery (a video that would, in fact, be real), the co-author responded with proof. This is not the first time that an environment under Unreal Engine 5 has raised this controversy.

A robot that looks like us is said to cause a psychological phenomenon: the disturbing valley, a particularly disturbing feeling. Will we also feel the same for video games?

For this studio to be fake, it would have to go to great lengths, perhaps more than just building the virtual environment.
