When it comes to Switch ports, Panic Button are the top-tier developers. They've handled some major ports for the Switch, including Doom, Wolfenstein II, Rocket League and more. In an interview with Nintendo Life, we learn that Panic Button's port of Hob: The Definitive Edition to Switch also presented some unique challenges.
Hob is unique among the games we’ve ported to the Switch in that it has a big open world. A player could run between all the different areas of the world without ever seeing a loading screen, which was a big challenge. There are also some rather massive vistas in the game where you can see almost the entire game world all at once, which was challenging. For us, one of the most interesting things about the type of work we do is that no matter how many games we’ve worked on, each one presents a unique challenge – we’ve never seen it all.
