Alternative controllers games aka ALT+CTRL or alt.ctrl games are video games played with  non-traditional controllers.  Traditional controllers are keyboards, mice, gamepads, touchscreens as well as Wiimotes, PS moves, Kinects, Leap Motions… In short: every controllers built by video games manufacturers, those you can buy.  Alternative controllers are the other ones, every other ones, any other ones.

Usually, ALT+CTRL games are played at events like festivals and art exhibits. But we can make ALT+CTRL games to play at home by diverting standard controllers like Good Soup MFB.U.T.T.O.N., Johan Sebastian Joust, Bounden, Fingle, Tie SImulator, Space team... Here is a playlist of some ALT+CTRL games playable at home available on itch.io for free: https://itch.io/c/1191630/alt-ctrl-to-play-at-home. And here are more examples of games using standard devices in an odd original way ↓

Divert standard devices to make a game using an ordinary controller in a weird new way!
