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.
