Keyboard FTW

This is really subjective. Keyboards are better if you prefer keyboards; gamepads are better if you prefer gamepads. As for me, gamepad worked insanely better than keyboards, but I've seen people achieving amazing things with keyboards, so it just really depends on how you feel more comfortable.

normally I love keyboards better, but I feel my reaction times are MUCH better on a gamepad, seeing as I only need my thumbs to control it.

SUB|ᴾᵃʳ Doctor Tsu.ba: Your feeling should be justified. I checked the code and there's an inherent keyboard delay caused by directinput. It waits for windows to send keyboard messages which can be slow and outdated instead of directly querying the driver, which is probably done for the gamepad. It can be fixed, but it's not easy.

i just assumed they wanted you to use gamepad because they have stock in the controllers and sometimes the game is so frustrating that you might throw the controller and break it. Im an optimist, by the way.

I did not know that. Thanks for sharing.

i played the game up to the real ending with the keyboard and a lot of times the constant holding of the shift really started to hurt my hand and i had to stop playing. i think that the gamepad would be better, but i can't imagine playing with one anymore because i'm so used to the keyboard.

I grew up playing old school PC platformers on a keyboard, and the first time I beat this game it was using a keyboard, so I think it's mostly about preference/muscle memory. That being said, I don't think a keyboard is ideal for a platformer as punishing as this one. My hand was in agony as I played the last few levels over and over and over again... What a great game.

I actually prefer the gamepad by far, but its mostly preferance ;)

I use the keyboard for most games, but the gamepad really is best for this game. The way they have the keyboard layed out makes my wrist hurt. Maybe it would be better if they were configured differently.
