Any Xinput compatible controller should work, You can use some apps too to remap your usb pad in case it's not any official mode (Xinput, DInput) Or use keys: WASD GH (Player 1) / ←→↑↓ "0""3"(Player2)
Hope it helps!
Thanks for your comment!
The graphics started out being for megadrive in fact. :)
It would be great to be able to version it on a retro console, although it will most likely be done for an arcade cabinet ;)

Thank you so much for your kind words!
I'm happy to know you are enjoying the game.
There's a lot of love into this game and the best reward for me is that players enjoy it. :)))
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!
The latest packs for the kickstarter campaign backers came out this morning. Some of the premium backers are already showing their copy of the game since last week through social media, so we are going to wait this week for everyone to receive the package and then we will release the game officially and open the download link for the rest of the buyers.
Thanks for your pattiente and for believing in the project, I'm looking forward for all of you to play it as soon as possible!
Thank you for your kind comment.
Galactic Wars Extended has been developed with Game maker Studio, it has its own proprietary programming language called the GameMaker Language (abbreviated to GML).
Thanks for your understanding mate :)
It was my mistake not to notify you of the delay here, I honestly did not remember that the original date was kept in the devlog. Again I apologize for the misunderstanding, I will inform you of everything as I have news. THANKS!
I'm really sorry Amok, I had to push back the date. It was announced on the kickstarter but not here, it's my mistake. I'm sorry, these are being very crazy weeks :(
I just made a new Dev Log, to tell you all details. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please, if you consider that you do not want to wait, write me a message and I will refund your pre-order.
Thanks for your support and understanding.
The main idea for the tittle was trying to do something generic that had relation with all those classic arcade games.
If you notice, the logo is a clear tribute to Galaga and Galaxian :) and there are much more classic influences if you know the games.
You'll find a .P8 with the standalone versions and more extras in downloads. Anyway.. You should find the game on the BBS or through pico8's splore menu. You can put the game with your stuff without problems. Have fun!! ;)
I really appreciate your words! And that you support indie developers, it is thanks to people like you that we develop games ... without players none of this would exist ;) So really thanks for playing it and for appreciating it!
Thank you for your comment and for your pre order! :)
I must say it was my first kickstarter and I think I made the mistake of showing the idea too early (among others) . I think that now that we are approaching the end, what was in my head is finally beginning to be seen as it should ;P
Galaga/Galaxian/Defender are big influences for this game! In fact, everything started thinking how Galaga would work in horizontal... and adding some power ups as in R-type/Gradius ;)
I think we will have a worthy successor to the original Galactic Wars, l'm looking forward to release the game and have your impressions!
Thanks for your kind words and for your pre-order!
I sent an email recently to all buyers to inform you about some news.
I'm looking forward to release the game too. I'll make a new update very soon! ;)
Thank you! I'm glad you like it!
Unfortunately the Linux version was presented during the campaign as a stretch goal but it was not reached.
At the moment there will only be a PC version, but I do not rule out that it can be ported in the future ;)
I put a lot of effort into getting the particles and explosions to have their effect xD I'm glad you like the details and find the difficulty well measured, you know that this according to the perception of each player varies, but I tried keep a good balance... not too easy or a game just for hardcore gamers.
Thanks for your good wishes with Galactic Wars EX! I really want to get on with the project and see how far we can take all this. Thanks to your good words I assure you that I will work even more motivated ;)
Thanks for your kind words! When you put so much love and work into something like this it is purely for someone to appreciate and enjoy it. You feel like you've accomplished something when you get comments like this, so really: Thanks for playing and for your good words on color treatment and "differentiation" with other AGD titles. I wish you enjoy the game much more and please, if you reach the end do not forget to tell me! :)
Please mate, check other programs in your computer... The game has been downloaded more than 10k times last week and nobody has an issue... I can guarantee you there's no virus in the files.
You really don't undertand my messages at all... I'm not mad about anybody to stalk the free games, I do it too! But what I don't do is rebuke whoever gives away their games, or score them with a star to harm them... That is being crazy, friend.
I'm not demanding anybody to donate, I'm giving my games for free! You really can't see this?
Seems that you are the same user that after itch.io blocked your account, has created a new account to keep trolling devs... what a shame... This will be my last answer for you. You better keep playing those free games and don't bother people anymore, PLEASE.
