All I have is a trackpad, and I can't even scroll to lock on. Gamepad support would be nice.

I am currently using an XBOX360 Afterglow controller and for some reason it just doesnt feel right when im playing. Any suggestions? It handles very awkwardly

I have the xbox 360 wired controller, but I'm on mac. That might be the issue. Works fine for other games.

360 controller works great for me as well, but I have yet to try it on my Mac laptop. Hmmmm.... I think I should.

I started out playing a few hours with mouse and keyboard, and then tried the official xbox 360 controller. I think its a little bit harder on the controller, but maybe you just have to get used to the sensitivity.

Unfortunately it seems like you can't reconfigure the buttons though. Kinda lame to have the lock-on bound to right trigger press instead of for instance RB imo...

I think it's almost unplayable with a gamepad (aiming!), but maybe that's just me..

im getting all A+ grades on all stages... with 360 game controller... its about to get used to that. I cant play with mouse and keyboard... it's almost unplayable for me (fast combos)

Yeah no I'm better with a gamepad for this kind of aiming. Geometry wars and such. I don't even have a mouse, it's just on the trackpad, so I have to line up my shots before I go into a room and ofset from where I'm standing.

I got used to it quickly, probably because of playing a ton of dual stick shooters over the years.

I'm still waiting for the Mac version to have controller support :/
DomDom Jun 30, 2013 @ 7:39am 
Ah so the mac version just doesn't have it at all?

For those on the mac, we have uploaded a build for mac to the beta branch WITH controller support (no rumble). has the instructions on how to join it. For any feedback or issues, leave a post in that thread.

For any other platforms, let us know the platform you playing on, the controller and what kind of issues you are having.

Aw man that's amazing Rutger cheers!
Running fine on Snow Leapord, Macbook Pro 2012. Had to install xquartz and restard. But controller support is amazing and the native fullscreen support and ability to switch applications is a nice touch too! Keep up the good work! Looking forward to the sequal!
