In Space We Brawl Initially Ran at 680 FPS on PS4; “Maybe it’s Too Powerful”

In Space We Brawl recently launched with all its couch co-op goodness on PS4 and PS3, and today I had a chat with Forge Reply Business Development Manager and Developer Alessandro Mazzega at Milano Games Week.

While you’ll be able to watch the full interview quite soon, here’s a fun factoid that will make you smile.

Alessandro explained that porting the game to PS4 was super-simple, partly because it’s made in Unity and also because PS4 is a “great platform,” and the first time they launched the game on the console at the studio it ran at 680 frames per second. They had to limit it because it was unplayable. He also added that for a 2D game like In Space We Brawl the console is maybe even too powerful.

I don’t think I ever saw anything run at 680 frames per second… It’d quite possibly give me an instant epileptic attack.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
