Super Lucky’s Tale Developer Speaks About Xbox One X – “It’s Like a High-End PC”
With this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo having come and gone, the console formerly known as Project Scorpio has been revealed to the world. Microsoft’s Xbox One X has garnered a ton of compliments since before it was unveiled, and that hype train continues to roll on. During E3, the Super Lucky’s Tale developer spoke with sources to let them know their position on the upcoming console, and they had some high remarks to relay.
Paul Bettner of Playful Corp. had great things to say about the company’s experience with the Xbox One X, and how development was a pleasure on the console. Gamers may know this developer from the previous titles Words With Friends and Lucky’s Tale. Now that they have played around with incredibly powerful system, they feel confident enough to give it praise.
From a developer’s standpoint, [Xbox One X] is the most developer-friendly console we have ever worked with,” he said. “Not just because the hardware is super over-powered–which it is. I don’t understand how they … it’s like a high-end PC crammed into this tiny little box.”
The Super Lucky’s Tale developer also had something interesting to say about the tools and support they had while creating the game, and how “it is the most advanced it’s ever been.” They attributed this to Microsoft focusing on refining the current console instead of reinventing it. With the current state of the video gaming industry, this can be seen as a breath of fresh air. On the other hand, the same could also be said about bringing something new and different to the table.
Bettner also went on to explain how the fact that Super Lucky’s Tale runs at 4K/60FPS is a huge deal, especially for a platforming game. “It gives you this precision and it really benefits the game like this that’s a lot about timing and about controlling this character–and it just feels great.” The game will launch alongside Microsoft’s Xbox One X on November 7, and it will bring a $30 price tag with it. The console will cost $500.
