My Friend Pedro is an action shooter in which the gameplay revolves around parkour, bullet time, and platformer elements seen from a side view perspective, and was developed by DeadToast Entertainment and published by Devolver Digital. The game was released on GOG and Steam on June 20, 2019 and on the Microsoft Store on December 5 the same year.

On release players reported a noticeable camera stuttering issue despite a locked 60 FPS that made the game near unplayable for some.[2] This was tracked down to be caused by the in-game camera updating at 50 Hz independent from the frame rate of the game,[3] and an experimental fix was released to the beta branch of the game. On June 27, 2019 the first update was released for the game that brought with it support for an uncapped frame rate and improved ultra-widescreen support among other things.[4] The second update was released on October 17, 2019 and added unlockable gameplay modifiers, in-game timer for speedrunners, and various other optional features.[5]

    "Because you're probably damping / smoothing the camera with fixed timescale functions that are set to Unity's default 0.02 (50hz), there's a disconnect between the rendering FPS (60hz) and the camera's position update rate (50hz). This means that some frames will be shown twice before the camera's position is updated. This is what is causing the "stuttering" that most people are experiencing. Fixing this is easiest done by changing the tickrate to 0.01666...7, but that may cause problems with existing code. Locking the game to 50fps will sync the update rates and can help, but that may also make some people even angrier."
