💻 MacBook Pro 13" M1 16GB yes Native Metal 1440 × 900 Performance is almost uniformly perfect. I'm not sure how one would get FPS out of this game, but it's not really one where frame rate would be obvious anyway. On one occasion textures were loading slowly and the environment displayed blurred, but it hasn't happened again and appears to be a fluke. reddit Mac App Store
