Controller support - is there?
Gloomwood's early access version, which debuted on September 6, 2022, does not yet have controller support - it will be added in the future in an update or the full release. You can only play the game with mouse and keyboard.
Additional control settings
Gloomwood offers three additional control settings:
- Sneak Mode - You can switch the SHIFT key from HOLD to TOGGLE. The default setting is HOLD - you need to hold the key to keep sneaking.
- Crouch Mode - You can switch the CTRL key from HOLD to TOGGLE. The default setting is TOGGLE - pressing the key once means you'll keep sneaking until you press it again.
- Automatically Unholster Weapons - This option lets you automatically draw weapons from your inventory and is enabled by default (YES).
