You are going to love this game I have stuff to post soon
It is pretty cool. I played the first section. (On my regular PC) It motivated me to dig out some of the NES style controllers I have to see how well they would work.
I have an original controller that someone converted to USB, a Hyperkin, and a Retrobit. I could not find my USB original. However the Retrobit works pretty nice once set up with Joy2Key. I had to modify the config that the developer posted a little. Since the Retrobit is more akin to a Xbox style controller I was able to set up the full screen and menu keys to controller buttons. I set up the rage meeter move to the Select key. (Can bind A+B to one controller button press) The turbo set also works fine. I was able to bind the keys. Then I could set A or B to turbo mode using the controller. The Hyperkin controller also worked fine, but it was a little more limited since it features the same amount of buttons as a regular NES controller.
If you happen to be making a video it might be worth taking a moment to go over how to set up and configure Joy2Key. I checked Controller Companion, and there seems to be a configuration file for the game in the Steam Works section. However I can not seem to get my Controller Companion to work correctly. I am not sure if it is not recognizing the Retrobit controller correctly or what, but I'll try to remember to get it sorted.
Some other things i happened to notice was there even on my regular PC (i7 4790k/AMD 580 8GB) when I first click to run the game (which is written in Flash wrapped in an exe) it comes up, and then it takes about 15 seconds or so before I can click the intro to get to the main menu. The intro will not even flash until about 15 or so seconds has passed. If I click anything before the info starts to flash to click the program will lock up.
If I click anything other the flashing banner that says click anywhere to begin it will load a web page for whatever was clicked on. Also if I click the NewGrounds logo while the program is loading the main menu it will load up a browser window to NewGrounds website.
Lastly out of curiosity I ran it in WINE on my Linux Mint Debian machine and it runs in WINE fine, but I can not add it to Steam in Linux.
(Adding to Steam in Windows is fine.)
The start up of the game seems to run more smoothly on my Linux machine under WINE. Might be a Flash issue in Windows for me.
