Is this game propaganda to make you buy a gamepad?
No, really. You can tell that someone uses a gamepad by the fact that they can get past the first boss and still have their left hand.
How did they ♥♥♥♥ up the keyboard controls so horribly? You often have to press space while holding shift, with just your left hand since you move left/right with the arrow keys. Space and shift are four. Keys. Apart. That's like trying to play it with the numpad. No, actually, it's more like if you had to move right and jump with one controller, and move left and run/attack with another.
The best part about it? You can't change the controls! There is a Controls button in the Settings menu, but all it does is tell you "This is keyboard. Use to play game." What kinda "settings" are THAT? Oh, and this is awesome: There is a way, but it involves changing some .ini file. How is anyone gonna try that?
Oh, and of course the advertising when you start the game. "First one to say keyboards are better gets shot in the face"!? You can also just say "My opinion is fact, and only i can have an opinion, so get a gamepad, you worthless waste of matter".
Why not make it so that you have to have plugged in 20 different controllers for it to start? Or how about 20 entirely new ones each time you want to play the game? How about 20,000 gamepads to unlock the next world? How about all that, AND hiding a paragraph in the terms and conditions which says that you'll be sentenced to death if you ever use a keyboard again?
