Hey, sorry to hear about this. Whenever you need to turn, hold down the left or right arrow key for several seconds while also holding the left ctrl key. Listen to the pace of the heartbeat (or, later, the pitch of the navigation spell) to understand when you’re facing your target. Then, press and hold the up arrow key to walk forward. You can listen again as you walk and readjust your angle if you need to.
Sometimes players think that one button press turns them 90 degrees and that the movement occurs on a grid, but that’s not the case. The game uses a slow turn speed.
Let me know if this helps. If it doesn’t, I can post a quick demo for you.
