Optimized RimWorld for PlayStation 4
Colony simulators like RimWorld are complex beasts that look simple at first glance and have a process that consumes a lot of different resources in the background. RimWorld itself is one of the deepest in the genre, with an AI storyteller that intelligently simulates psychology, gun battle, close-quarters combat, climate, diplomacy, interpersonal relationships, art, medicine, trade and more.
To maintain this level of complexity and high performance that PlayStation players expect, teams make the most of their hardware, including a complete redesign of how the game is previewing and displaying the structure in progress.

Designing a user interface for the management simulator for the console
One of the first challenges I faced with RimWorld Console Edition was how to convert all the functionality from the RimWorld interface to the PlayStation 4 system. RimWorld has a highly functional menu with hundreds of build, manage and combat tools needed to play the game. RimWorld’s UI is great for mice and keyboards, but it required a complete mod and remake of the DualShock 4 (and the DualSense wireless controller via PS5 backward compatibility).
It has always been difficult to maintain a level of detail in a sitting sofa experience without compromising the depth of world construction and story generation, but intuitive and engaging without sacrificing core functionality. We are pleased to be able to provide a user interface to the console player of the original game. All design decisions were made at the speed of action first and foremost. There are no unnecessary animations or glamorous prosperity, just clear readability that gives the story and player control.

The RimWorld Console Edition interface is designed from scratch to work with the number of inputs available to the controller and player. Most of the user interface can be navigated using triggers, so players can easily access all major actions with the tap of a finger. All menus are designed with this in mind, giving you quick access to everything with simple input for a quick, smooth and intuitive experience.
