Post news RSS Arkhangel has been updated with full controller support!

Latest version of Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars brings updated player movement settings, full controller support, and a host of new features!

Posted by on

+ Added full game controller support. This was a full replacement of the Unity Input System! Yowza!
+ Significant overhaul to Player navigation settings and speed.
+ Added a "Run" option to allow the player to explore at a faster rate.
+ Restructured menus to allow for easier controller navigation.
+ Inventory has been significantly overhauled. It is now opened/closed by an input key rather than a mouse over. Interaction methodology and presentation has also changed. This has had cascading effects on multiple other systems that required adjustments.
+ Visual Quality settings, Screen Resolution settings, and Controller Customization are now all handled with in-game menu interactions.
+ Updated multiple camera transitions in the game to be fades rather than movement based.
+ Updated camera positions and control perspective in the Library and Saloon.
+ A ton of small tweaks and adjustments!

+ Use previous saved games at your own risk! With the sheer amount of changes to the underlying systems of Arkhangel, we cannot 100% guarantee that loading into old save games before this update will be completely reliable. By all means, give it a shot, but know that there very well could be significant issues with player animation, controls, and menus.
+ We recommend using D-PAD when navigating through menus with a game controller.


This update took significantly longer than we expected. Being the only Unity developer on our team, I (Zack) vastly underestimated the number of hurdles and cascading effects that such an update was going to introduce. That being said, we've had a lot of great feedback on this update. Friend of Winter Night Games and game industry veteran, James Goddard gave us some incredibly valuable advice regarding player speed, animation settings, and controller feel. When the guy that worked on Street Fighter II gives pointers, you LISTEN!

Thanks James! :-D

As always, continue to give us feedback. Your thoughts and insights have been incredibly valuable and are the main reason why we pushed so hard on this update. We knew that the controls needed some love and your guidance made us really want to focus on it with a microscope! Y'all help us grow!
