This is good and I can totally see the potential with this! I only hope that performance would be fixed asap. Ofc that might not be first concern yet
Hi, thanks for the encouraging comment! We do agree that we need to make improvements to performance, especially the courtyard scene has not been thoroughly optimized. This is one of the reasons we're showing this as an alpha preview; we believe it is the first version we can give out to people to show our vision and our work so far, but we're at the same time aware that there's still a lot to be done, including performance optimizations.
Out of curiosity, how do the other parts of the game run for you and what are your system specs?
I have gtx 770, i5 4670k and 16gb ram at 64bit OS. Main menu and Armory works at 45/60+ fps (almost smoothly) as squad show case and caste run at 30 or below.
Still the potential is great. For me this lands somewhere between exanima and overgrowth (where exanima is my all time favourite and overgrowth is good but still meh) Not bad at all for an alpha preview!
Best regards to you!
I see, ideally, we'd want the game to run @ 1080p on high settings at least at a stable 30 FPS with such a setup. Since Unity (the game engine we use) currently also does a lot of work on optimization, I'm hopeful we can get closer to that goal in the coming months.
But we're very excited to hear you've enjoyed this preview and hope you'll stay tuned for the next updates! If you'd like, you could also drop in on our forums for more feedback & discussion on ideas for features, improvements, etc. Cheers!
