Final Fantasy VI: The Interactive CG Game, also known as the Final Fantasy SGI demo, was a short demonstration produced by Square using characters and settings from Final Fantasy VI. Produced using new Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) Onyx workstations acquired by Square, the demo was Square's first foray into realtime 3D graphics, and many assumed it was a precursor to a new Final Fantasy title for the Nintendo 64 video game console, which also utilized SGI hardware. Square, however, had not yet committed to Nintendo's console at the time of the demo's production, and much of the technology demonstrated in the demo was later put to use in the rendering of full motion video sequences for Final Fantasy VII and subsequent games for the PlayStation. Demo
The demo itself features Terra Branford (with blonde hair, fighting with a short sword), Locke Cole (with darker hair, fighting with a whip) and Shadow (fighting barehanded) in a series of battles. The game is controlled largely through mouse cursor movements. For example, moving the cursor in the shape of a star would summon a dragon (Bahamut) to attack.
