Controls + Basic info!
Welcome to the Beta

This beta build is not the full game and contains only limited story progress. That said, the map contained here is still fairly substantial, with a variety of secrets to find.

Pay attention to your surroundings and try things!


The game is designed for Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers. These will work perfectly out of the gate. If you have another controller it may still work, depending on what it is. Please report back your experiences if you test other controllers!

edit: it is now possible to map your gamepad controls. Do so by hitting '1' on your keyboard from the splash screen and follow the prompts.

Default controls on a 360 controller:

A: Jump
B: Interact
X: Fire cannon
Y: Fire special weapon (once you acquire one)

LT: Hold for diagonal aim mode
L3: Cycle special weapons

Lb: Dash left (once you acquire dash ability)
Rb: Dash right

Back: Toggle map overlay

Left analog stick/digital pad: Movement/aiming
Right analog stick: Push camera

Keyboard Controls: (Not recommended, but possible)

Z: Jump
E: Interact
X: Fire cannon
D: Fire special weapon

Shift: Hold for diagonal aim mode
F: Cycle weapons

A: Dash left
C: Dash right

Q: Toggle map overlay

Arrows: Movement/aiming

Post your feedback, suggestions, and bugs!

For specific requests, suggestions, or bug reports, use the Suggestions & Bug Report forum. Anything else please post it in the general forum.

Please be constructive! When reporting bugs, it may be useful to bring up the location overlay by hitting '6' on your keyboard. This will give you internal information about where you are located in the world.

First request, customizable controls pl0x. :)
twotimingpete  [developer] Nov 10, 2014 @ 11:39am 
I think customizable controls should be possible, I just haven't spent time on much interface stuff for the purposes of beta.
Talelle Nov 10, 2014 @ 12:15pm 
oh also, no push camera on kb?
twotimingpete  [developer] Nov 10, 2014 @ 12:36pm 
oh, there's a push camera on the KB, I just forget what keys. it's something completely impractical to do on a keyboard, but I'll figure it out. XD

For me, it is on the numeric pad, .del moves the camera to the left and + to the right. Don't know about up and down though.

I'm playing with a a Dualshock 4 Controller, using the DS4Windows tool, which emulates the DS4 as a Xinput 360 Controller. Encountered 0 problems with the controls so far, having played 3 hours.

I don't think I'm in the beta but I'm excited for progress! this game looks amazing and I can't wait to play it!

My controllers are stored until I'm done moving so alas I use my keyboard. xD

My controller buttons are differant X is jump and B is fire. I figured I let you know.
twotimingpete  [developer] Nov 11, 2014 @ 6:22pm 
what controller, leon?
deicaust Nov 11, 2014 @ 8:46pm 
I can shoot, bring up the map, use special weapons, and jump. I am using a logitech dual action controller. I can not dash?
twotimingpete  [developer] Nov 11, 2014 @ 10:36pm 
you need to acquire the dash ability before you can dash, just fyi. did you acquire it?

Is there a way to pause? Children and animals force me to occasionally leave my computer without a chance to get to a safe location, and my instictive Esc button press leaving the game so I have to restart at my last save is driving me nuts.

Great game from what I've played so far though. Absolutely love the atmosphere of everything.
