Warsaw, Poland-based Crunching Koalas is now a registered [email protected] developer, but the company's Tomasz Tomaszewski isn't sure whether its current projects will ever appear on Xbox One. The reason? That day one release parity clause, revealed by Nuclear Throne developer Vlambeer last year.
The clause stipulates that [email protected] developers must release their games on Xbox One before or at the same time as for other platforms. This can be a bit of a chore, as it requires the developer to work on two or more versions of the game simultaneously, rather than staggering its output. Vlambeer dodged this particular bullet by quickly agreeing to release Nuclear Throne on PS4 first - the clause doesn't apply if a project has already been announced for another platform.
