In March 2021, Knights started working with a publisher - Humble Games - on their new title: The Wild at Heart. The collaboration aimed at bringing the game from Xbox One to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The project involved 2 of our developers and a dedicated QA team.
The biggest challenge during porting the game to Switch turned out to be optimization and obtaining a maximum possible FPS. In the case of the PS4 port, the difficulty was the save system, on which we put a significant amount of development work to achieve the desired results.
