Under the hood, behind the screens
As previously mentioned we’ve been working with Pingle, a studio based in Ukraine, on overhauling much of the existing console port. It’s been a herculean effort on their part to rewrite much of what already existed in the console versions of the game while accommodating each of the three console platforms. All this immensely challenging work has continued each day whilst their team continues to face an obvious source of external difficulty.
If you’d like to read more about their work porting PC Building Simulator and the hidden issues they’ve fixed in PC Building Simulator 1’s codebase, make sure to check out their case study.
More importantly, we’d like to encourage you to read more about the people behind the screens and the thoughts we could never do justice to through their blog posts here and here.
