why isnt controller support built in?
Just wondering. I loved playing this game, but havent played since my pinnacle profiler trial expired.

I understand hate towards controllers vs kb+m is real, but this game is SO much fun with a gamepad. Steam just launched big picture mode - so this IMO would be a huge selling point if it were fully controller compatible. Lastly - super meat boy is very pro controller - so i dont see why this game doesnt just embrace the same thing?

Binding of Isaac is built in Flash, which doesn't have controller support. For Super Meat Boy they built their own engine, which allowed them to throw in controllers. A remake of Isaac is being developed at the moment, it'll have full controller support as well as an expansions worth of new content -and- local co-op. Co-op! In Isaac!

Probably because the author wanted to spend more time working on gameplay and not the adaptation of controller. The solution via JoyToKey app works pretty fine, doesn't it?

I think it's because it's not difficult to control the game with a keyboard, but i'd wanna use a game pad too

Because flash doesn't support it. Xpadder is worth the money IMO, otherwise get Motionjoy for gamepad support.

how does xpadder compare to pinnacle? Pinnacle was pretty good, but expensive. I liked that you could download specific game profiles from their website.

I never tried Pinnacle. As far as I know Xpadder doesn't have any profiles that are downloadable. You can create and save as many as you want though

I made a xpadder profile if anyone wants to use it/improve upon it:

Or if you just want the profile without the .bmp controller image:
