I'm not sure.

The purchasing authentication goes through itch.io. Maybe their support can assist you?

I've searched around and can not find anything on the licensing in regards to this tool. Not here, nor on the github.

If I create a game with this tool what am I allowed to do with it?

If say I integrate it into a larger project that is monetized, is that allowed?

What if I were to write my own custom interpreter for the 'game data' that allowed me to embed it into something other than a browser, is that allowed?

Are 'Analogue Aim' and 'Analogue Right Joystick X' set to the same values?

If not, there might be an issue with your R-stick. PS4 controllers often will read values from the R-stick oddly I've found. They don't zero out correctly. Try disconnecting the gamepad and reconnecting with the sticks in the center (as best you can). Also make sure you don't have any secondary remapping software running. And then in game once it's started waggle the stick slightly which should zero it out.

If that doesn't work, there's not a whole lot more I can do for ya as I don't know your controller setup.

As stated before we are going to be releasing an update soon that has upgraded controllers support. Although if your problem is related to a remapping tool or anything, there isn't a lot I can do about that even in the newer version as it's related to the controller and not the game.

Either way, expect a beta version of this update in the next week or so. The artist is currently doing a polish pass on the lighting.

So here's what I did to get somewhat suitable controls with PS4 controller in the current released version.

When you start the game in the settings window select input settings. For all the inputs double click the entries and set it to what you prefer.

Then for 'Digital Aim' make the secondary the R1 button (or L1 if you prefer).

Then for 'Analogue Aim' you need to set it to some analogue input that is 0 when not pressed. On the PS4 controller I went with the D-Pad Y-axis (up on the d-pad). Since I use the L-stick for movement, the d-pad doesn't do anything.

So the PS4 controller's driver is really weird.

The L2 and R2 triggers read in the range of -1 to +1. Where -1 is depressed. And some inputs overlap.

This is completely different from ALL other controllers out there that read 0 to +1 or 0 to -1. Where 0 is depressed, and absolute(1) is pressed. 

This is why your character is spinning when you hold aim, it's registering it as a -1 to +1 input on the rstick which rotates your character.

I've since written a completely new input manager that recognizes PS3 and PS4 controllers and accomodates it. It's going to be in the update that is released later this month.

In the mean time I'd suggest mapping 'AIM' to something like R1 instead of R2. If you give me a moment I'll go grab a PS4 controller and try to come up with a mapping that works and post it here... it's my roommates controller though so I have to wait for him to get home.

It'll have its own page.

It's going to be called 'Garden Variety Body Horror', if you follow us you'll be alerted of its release.

Oh you're not talking about the splash screen (where it says 'made with unity' on startup). You mean the configuration window that appears before the game starts.

Yeah, that's there because it's where you can configure the inputs for your controller.

Yeah, the update supports PS4 controller. And of course the config window will no longer be there since we've changed out the input manager. These are the profiles I've defined so far:

And yeah, we can't move version. We're on version lock since updating to Unity2017 would be a huge amount of work. There's no point in doing that, it doesn't have anything we need.

I love that there is more going on in the animated background of the webpage than there is going on in the 'game'.

We're working on an updated version to be released near the end of the month.

It uses my newer input manager to replace the crappy Unity one. Currently it's configured for X360 controller and to modify it you have to use the garbo unity input manager when you start the game. The new input manager I wrote auto-detects most controllers, and has an in game menu to change inputs if you don't like the default.

We can not move to a newer version of Unity for this game. We will be moving to the newer Unity in our future games after this series is done.

Splash screen removal requires premium Unity. We are not currently at the budget level to afford doing so (this is a 2-man project done in our garage).

Inputs are defined in the title screen under 'Controls'. In the newer version that comes out later this month the controls screen will also appear in the pause menu. On keyboard/mouse you hold right click to aim, and left click to fire (if you're on mac with one button mouse, you're sort of shit out of luck in the current version).

Best. Game. Ever.

Programmer here - could you e-mail me at 'dev at jupiterlighthouse dot com'. I'll need to know:
Controller Used
Version of game (latest?)
As much detail as you're willing to give of the bugs in question, including how to recreate. If you're able to get images or even vids that'd be amazingly helpful.

That's a weird bug, I'll pass it on right now. Thanks for letting us know!

Ack! God no. This just means the update after this one will the be the last feature update for chapter 1.

We're definitely making more!

can do, ill be home from holiday this weekend when i plan to build a new version with some bug fixes. Ill be sure to make a 64 build.

Added a .zip above, enjoy!

Down the line, maybe!

I just finished your review. It was excellent. Thank you for playing and for taking the time to write it! We're taking many notes for the next episode (and future fixings of this one) -- so every bit helps. Stoked you enjoyed it!

Artist here - thanks a lot! Unity gets a bad rap because of how many people use ONLY out-of-the-box visual features. But you can make just about any engine look any way you like if you just climb up under the hood for a bit.  

That being said, this look took a long time under the hood.

Linux build is now available.

Yes, it was done with Unity.

Unity 5.6.3f1 to be exact.

Thanks, Workster! We hope so too ;D

Last release v1.0.014 has checkpoints between each major section.
Adding 2 more checkpoints to the game now.
Episode 2 will introduce a more robust saving feature.

Awesome! Thanks for the kind words, it means a lot to us.

That downstairs area can be a real pain in the ass, as there is no save until the [REDACTED]. We'll be updating the save system soon in a few important ways. Can't promise it'll make the enemies any easier though!

This week I'm working on OSX & Linux versions.

Just need to set up test environments.
