Controller support?
Please, whoever gets this (and has access/use a gamepad) post whether it can be played with a controller. I'd love to play it on the big screen in the living room!

I'm downloading and have access to an XBox controller. I'll let you know in a bit.

Fantastic, mate! Thanks! ;)

It doesn't seem to have controller support, and there doesn't seem to be an option to enable it either. Sorry.

Official controller support is still in the works. Right now the game is only tuned for Keyboard and Mouse.

well, that's a bit of a bummer...

Oh, pity. I just think it'd be awesome to have a few friends come over and play this in the living room (beer optional, but advisable!) :D

Aww.. no controller support or manual input remapping? I was really looking forward to playing this with a controller. Guess I'll be waiting with the others.

I was totally psyched to play this on the big screen, sad about no controller support :( .... What would it take to add it? I'm willing to playtest or program :)

Go download xpadder or joy2key and set up a profile for this game. Doesn't take much considering how few buttons are in this.

Yes, Joy2key works well, thanks for the tip.

To set up Antichamber with your XBox controller:

1. Fire up Joy2Key
2. On the 'Others' tab, tick the 'Use Axes Other than X and Y'
3. Go back to the configuration page, and set up remaps for WASD, Space, Shift, Left Click, and Mouse Axis movement.
4. This picture is very handy to understand which Joy2Key buttons/axes map to stuff on your controller: http://i24.tinypic.com/egxpxj
5. Enjoy Antichamber with Gamepad

I still think native support would rock, and I'm willing to help make it happen ;)

Native support is still relevant, especially if you use Big Picture mode. I've got a feeling Joy2key and Xpadder would mess with the Big Picture interface somehow...
Also, when emulating key presses, there is no true analog movement when using the analog stick.

I hope the dev implements it, I think it would be useful in case they decide to port the game for Xbox/PS3, anyway. :)

Still no controller support after all this time? Cmon.

I'm still waiting for controller support.
