Creating games for new consoles can be an incremental task for developers. Learning about the nuances and subtleties for maximizing the performance of a game can take years to grasp. Harnessing the power of new video game consoles takes time, no matter the studio.

PS4 Pro has been available since it launched last November. Project Scorpio will launch this coming holiday season. Both systems provide developers with new sums of power to create gameplay experiences. However, it may take time for studios to learn what these systems are truly capable of.

Microsoft and Sony are certainly aware of the challenges they are presenting developers with these new systems, and their efforts to bridge the gap of new consoles seem clear to some. In an exclusive interview with We Write Things, Lienzo’s Adolfo Aguirre agreed that Microsoft and Sony are trying to make the transition of mid-generation consoles as painless as possible.

“They certainly add some additional steps to the porting and publishing process, and that’s something that nobody really wants. To both Microsoft’s and Sony’s credit, though, they are making the process as seamless as possible,” Aguirre said.

Lienzo is the studio behind the upcoming third-person adventure game Mulaka. The game takes a stylized look at the bumpy land of Northern Mexico. Some folks may be wondering if there will be a multiplayer experience available in Mulaka, but Aguirre confirmed it will not have multiplayer. “Mulaka is a single-player experience only.”

As we talked about PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio earlier, some developers are taking advantage of the new systems. Other studios aren’t quite as willing to volunteer how they’re using them, if at all. Lienzo isn’t saying whether or not they are taking advantage of them. “We don’t have anything to announce about it at the moment.”

Mulaka is set to launch later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Those wishing to pick-up a PS4 Pro can do so today. Project Scorpio will release sometime this holiday. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Mulaka.
