Rime developer says that some aspects of the game are beyond a patch-level fix on Nintendo Switch.
I assume they mean it can't be fixed with one patch and will require more, as if it is not fixed in a patch then a full update to the game will be required?
They mean the hardware is too weak to patch.
try telling that to Playtonik and their brilliant port of Yooka Laylee which exposes your lazy effort.
Can't patch crappy hardware, unfortunately..
You can always try the MS route. Release crappy hardware, try to convince everyone its great, when they don't bite, release more hardware and try again. :-)
you can't also blame horrible ports on the hardware. Sometimes the developers are to blame for not optimising their game properly.
Tequila Works... Ah, yes, the developers behind The Sexy Brutale, that cool game that unfortunately reeks of technical laziness on PC... Yeah, I wouldn't get my hopes up on these guys fixing the game.
laziness != inexperience. Stop trying to assign motives.
I like this game and have it on PS4 and it doesn't run the best on PS4 either. I won't be so egregious to say they're lazy but just not very good at optimizing.
That's not credible. A "simple patch" can be as comprehensive as it needs to be. It can replace faulty code, faulty assets or both.
Hopefully they offer a refund
