This game is exceptionally well written and emotionally engaging. It was 3 hours for me but it felt like 1, but a really awesome one. I played a lot of story-based games and this is one of the best games I ever played. I absolutely loved it

So, I'm running it on max and getting around 35 FPS. The thing I've noticed using EVGA Precision, is that the gpu usage reaches, at max, 72%. Think this game has a problem on using all the gpu power.
---EDIT---
vsync is off.

The game definitely is harder on HW than it should be but you should be fine to run MAX. Doesn't surprise me with this game. Feel bad for ya though!

Well I can't say its one of the worst optimization, there are games with way worse optimization like gta iv or crysis 3. I'm playing this game on Max settings with ambient occulsion off and getting 32-40 fps in average.

you cant really expect devs to optimize games to 7 year old cards. middle class cards are cheap nowadays, take a look at r7 260, or gtx650

You can run it on low 15-30FPS with lowest res. 640x480
You should have the latest updated drivers and if possible get modded drivers for best performance.

I'm lagging in-game and I don't know why. I meet the requirements for medium to high but it lags on low.

Sadly, the performance will be very poor so it isn't worth it.

It's great, I really enjoyed it.
Touching story, nice atmosphere.
It's way too short though, shouldn't cost more than 5€.
