    "Having some last minute issues with getting Amnesia: Rebirth to run as it should on Mac. We will unfortunately not have the Mac version ready for launch, but we will try our best to get it up and running as soon as we can after release."

    Selecting and applying 3840x2160 in the game resulted in a noticeable decrease in FPS.

    "The reason for the cap is due to how physics works in the engine, and to keep that predictable and stable. You can however uncouple rendering from the FPS cap, but some things will not be updated in more than 60FPS."

    Email from Peter Wester (engine programmer): "All the gameplay is run at 60 fps. This means physics, puzzles, player movement, mouse/kb/gamepad input and some animations. The only things that can be unlocked are particles, some animations and texture animations"

    As I wrote on Discord - this is likely caused by aspect ratio (or FOV values) being stored in save files and overriding aspect ratio on load.
