To Leave PS4 Runs At 1080p/60fps, Sony “Really Working Their Asses Off To Help Devs Like Us”

Freaky Creations’ Estefano Palacios and Jorge Blacio on how Sony is helping indie developers in Ecuador.

The Ecuador based Freaky Creations are working on To Leave which is currently scheduled to release on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC. GamingBolt spoke to Creative Director Estefano Palacios, and Producer Jorge Blacio about how To Leave is shaping up on the PlayStation 4.

Jorge Blacio confirmed to GamingBolt that game will run at 1080p at 60fps on the PS4.Well yeah, To Leave is not as resource intensive as a full 3D AAA, but it does have its moments when it demands the hardware a bit. Mostly because of the physics, but this has been optimized a lot by us at this point. So it is safe to say that To Leave sill run at 1080p at 60fps on the PS4,” he explained.

Estefano Palacios revealed that being based in Ecuador, it’s normally very difficult to get hold of Dev Kits and general games development help but Sony have been extremely supportive.

“Working with Sony has been awesome. In fact, I dare to say that it has been the door that took us to the big leagues. It would have took years to get to the point we are now without them. They are really open to hear anything you have to say and give you honest feedback. On the Latin American Incubation Program, the people I talked with the most, are Mike Foster and Bruno Matzdorf. Both of them great persons, and really working their asses to help developers like us. They always say honestly what they are thinking and always try to see a way to help us.”

“The Incubation program has allowed us to get To Leave on the Play Station platforms. They give us access to DevKits, without any cost. They invite us to events like GDC so that we can expose our game. They present us to know indie developers, so that they can advise us. All of this things are really impossible to get here on Ecuador,” he said.

This is just a snippet of our interview with Freaky Creations and we will have more in the coming days.

    So a low budget indie game with low level graphic engine runs at 60fps 1080p whoopie freaking doo

    • guest

      Hey Gamingbolt, so why havent you banned this guy? All he does is troll. I mean i may agree with his statement this time. But he’s a straight up troll, and you should know that. Ban him!

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      Because he’s right and they know it.

    • ps4lol

      Uh no, he’s consistently wrong and maliciously stupid.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      And the same game would be 720 upscaled and struggle to maintain 30fps on tvbox one.

  • metalman5150

    So another place I am desperate to visit is Ecuador. I’ve heard nothing but great stories about the people of Ecuador and of course the various typographies. To me, a story like this one, above, is a testament to good people doing good things for other good people. Good read, thanks for posting!

    4 the gamers…

    I don’t understand how around 25 million 10-17 yo kids/Xbox fans can hate Sony so much, and they would rather play a call of duty/halo/gears game only, and only those games, until 2020, than getting a ps4 and be able to play thousands of great different games and genres.

    When we are a gamer, acting like this, is it great? Is it great, not being able to play some amazing games, just because we are faithful towards a brand and company?
    Are people smart when acting like this? That hate inside doesn’t let people discover and play games on other systems. Smart, huh?

    Sony loves what they do, and they show it.
    I wish these 25-30 million xbox fans could just think for 1 minute,and ask themselves ‘does Microsoft really do deserve all the faith, loyalty, trust and love, from me? What have they been doing all these years to the gaming industry and to gamers,apart grabbing all money they can, lying,paywalls, lying, BS announcements, lying, fooling gamers, buying exclusive cod content,halo,gears, buying journalists, reviews, press, lying, and also lying.do they deserve all my love?

    • Kevin Kirby

      Only those games? Lets try this. Quantum Break, DR3, Fable Legends, Forza 5, Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive Alan Wake 2, RYSE, Kinect Sports, You just got DESTROYED!!! So have fun with indiestation 4 and all those low budget trashy indie games you speak of because it’s a FACT X1 has more first party big budget AAA caliber exclusives out currently and slated for the future. Did I mention indiestation 4 oh yeah I did.

    • luvthesnapper

      forza and ryse lol

    • datdude

      I’m sorry. I fell asleep. Wake me up when a Microsoft first party studio actually produces a game of the year winner. GOTY has become quite routine for Sony studios. Case closed chump. You have to laugh at a guy who can’t even manage google correctly, and actually thinks Microsoft has more studios and/or games in development. What a sucker. No wonder he enjoys paying more to get far less.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      You’re an idiot Kevin, and do yourself a favor if you’re going to list xbone games please list ones that dont suck, oh that’s right they all suck never mind, go back to your coloring books Kev.

    • TraceSkipper

      you forgot titansmall

    • elparia

      Titansmal lol

    • KeeseToast

      Sony has 14 first-party studios and Microsoft has 5. Enough Said!!!!

    • Kevin Kirby

      Where are the games? Because all we are hearing these days are studio closings and layoffs and loosing IP’s? As far as we know Sony has Delay Club and The order and UC4 coming but that’s it the rest is nothing but indie games. The reality is POS4 is an indie box and being sold on waiting for greatness and hopes and dreams but the reality is Sony is in total company liquidation and look at all the developers leaving Sony studios almost daily.

    • KeeseToast

      Guerilla and Quantic Dream are working on new IPs. Sony Bend is working on a PS4 game right now. We also heard not much from Japan Studio which has 4 teams (2 of them working on Vita games right now i think).Media Molecule finished Tearaway so they most probably are working on a PS4 game now. Sony didnt close any studios recently, yes they were some layoffs at ND and SSM but this is not uncommon. Loosing a whole game is definitely a pity but those things can happen. Lets talk again after the E3 we will see what Sony has to announce their.
      i also didnt say that Microsoft as no games or anything, but in a long term Sony will always have the most exclusives because of their large Worldwide Studios just look at the last generation.

    • Kevin Kirby

      Guerilla is working on a new free to play FPS shooter so yeah really there you go more trashy indie games. Also we know that Sony has had the edge in more exclusives in years past but not so much the case right now the POS4 is clearly turning into a more indie box and less exclusives. Currently MS has more already released first party exclusives and MS has more slated for the future. So just because Sony had the edge in the past does not mean that trend will continue and it’s not currently. So again POS4 is and has been sold on waiting for greatness and hopes and dreams but the reality is it’s turning into an indiestation 4 box.

    • KeeseToast

      Guerilla is not working on F2P title, there was ONE rumour that their new game may have Microtransactions (and I hope it will not). Like you said they may have not the most exclusives NOW, but this could change in the future lets just see what E3 brings us.

    • Kevin Kirby

      Yeah well don’t expect to much from Guerilla Killzone has never really been any good

    • guest

      Yeah, i expect as much out of Guerilla as i do out of MS, actually, no, thats not true, i expect less out of MS.

    • Kevin Kirby

      Halo and Gears make Killflop look like peasant garbage and everyone knows this.

    • ps4lol

      Delusional and deranged microsoft fanboy.

    • ps4lol

      PS4 has the superior version of all console AAA multiplats, The Order, Driveclub, MLB 14: The Show, Deep Down, Uncharted 4, TLOU Remake, more dev support including indies, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS games on Xbox: Forza 5 (LOL)

      PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.,,

  • datdude

    Sony does what Microsoft don’t.

  • NL37

    I don’t normally play indie games but this seems,,, really fun, love the soundtrack, 1080p … Giorgeous

  • madbads

    hahahaahaha really?

  • Guest

    More indie trash. No thanks!

  • RealityCheck2013

    Looks nice but if a Next-Gen Console couldn’t do this in 1080p/60fps then that would just be sooooooooooooooo F-IN SAD(hmm, just like the ‘Xbox ONE’ can’t even do a simple game like ‘Trials Fusion’ in 1080p+60fps!?!? WTF!!!) MEGA-F-IN-LoL:D
