Some early The Talos Principle Vulkan benchmarks

KimyrielleNice to see it outperforming OpenGL (was there any doubt that it would btw.?) But the much more important question is...will it outperform DX12? Because if it doesn't devs will go "Why would we add a Vulkan render path for these 1% that use Linux?" To succeed on the market, being the second fastest API won't be good enough when the fastest one already controls 90% of the market.

Definitely an important question. Seems like so far we're looking at rapid improvement, so good sign there. From what I've heard about how similar they are, though, I have this feeling they'll end up at rough parity.
I'm thinking if I were making the decision of DX12 vs Vulkan as someone wanting to sell a game (once Vulkan is properly off the ground), it would come down to "Do I want DX12 for Windows and Xbox, or Vulkan for Windows and (everything else)?" And probably my answer would be "I'll just use an engine that does both and get all of the above for almost free."

This to me is the answer. Whatever will reduce development time and give them easier platform options. Linux might be only 1% but android on the other hand...

Banished Linux port is pretty much complete, OpenGL performing well

I remember getting given a copy of one of the previous games and I was excited to try it however the version I had turned out to be Russian so I couldn't even get past the menu haha

Will be excited to add this to my library!

Have played a reasonable amount of this and it is fairly good, it really does have a lot of potential if they could only finish it! Will have to purchase a couple of copies for friends.
