Controller support didn't make it for this first update, but just letting you know that version 1.2 is out! It includes new options on the Pause screen (press P while playing), including an option to change the respawn-mode to an instant teleport, instead of the hyper-speed zooming back. Hopefully this helps any eyestrain issues!
There are also several new "assist mode" options that can be used to lower the difficult, for anyone just wanting to play through the story, or take their time to learn the levels. It doesn't impact the endings (aside from an assist-mode stamp on the final screen), so it can even be used on "apocalypse mode" to reach the best endings!
