Recommended hardware?

I'm partial to the occasional massive build. The only problem is that after a certain point, my frame rate drops significantly, down to single digits on both my computers...

I've got a Lenovo Y510P running Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10 (roughly 20 % better frame rate in Ubuntu)
Intel i7-4700MQ 2,3 - 3,5 GHz
8 GB RAM 1666 MHz
Nvidia GeForce GT 750M

And a self built desktop running Ubuntu 16.10
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3,6 GHz
16 GB RAM 1666 MHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

The game runs better on my laptop, and that leads me to believe the CPU is the major bottleneck in my systems (as it's got a newer CPU).

What hardware would you recommend, and what hardware do you use when developing the game?

    Hey Stenpett!

    We use pretty standard pcs:

    CPU: i7-4770K 3.50 Ghz
    RAM: 16 Gb
    OS: Windows 10 64 bit
    GPU: Geforce GTX 660 2 Gb VRAM

    But the game is really demanding on the CPU, no matter what pc you got, the game will lag eventually :(, it's something that we are working on right now.

    The more bricktrons you have it will lag and the more corruptrons that spawn in the map it will lag too, so yeah we are working hard on this, I dream of playing Castle Story lag free.

    Thanks for sharing your specs!
