After funding Earthlock on KickStarter (twice) I'm very pleased to have an alpha release to play with!

 

I'm playing on the Mac version, and have had to sort of stumble through the controls by randomly pressing keyboard buttons until I figure out what they do. It appears as though Space maps to A, and x maps to B, but I'm just not sure what is what.

 

Is there anyway to get an official complete key mapping of controls?

 

It'd be nice to have the on-screen button hints also be mouse clickable, so that PC players can utilize their UIs, though once key customization and Gamepad support is in place, it probably won't matter much anymore.

 

Thanks for making this awesome game!

Hi paploo!

So cool to hear that you've backed us - twice! Can't wait to hear what you think of the game!

 

I'll be sure to bring your comments to the team so that we can work on updating this.

 

In the meantime - I've tried to map out the controls for you as best as possible. Hopefully this will help you out. This is based on the XBOX controller scheme:

W  =  Movement Up

A   =  Movement Left

S   =  Movement Down

D   =  Movement Right

 

Q   = Left Bumper  (accesses different options in combat)

E    = Right Bumper  (accesses different options in combat)

 

Spacebar  = A (confirmation button)

             Z  = Y (menu access)

             X  = B (cancellation button)

             C  = X (use item - action button)

 

 

Numpad 8  =  Camera movement Up

Numpad 4  =  Camera movement Left

Numpad 6  =  Camera movement Right

Numpad 2  =  Camera movement down

 

If you don't have a numpad available:

V  =  Toggles between 3 camera presets in combat to give you different views of awesomeness!

 

 

Hope this helps!

Have fun!

 

Regards,

Just figured I'd put this in here as well. There is support for the xbox one driver on Mac if you use this driver:

The game should work right off the bat with it. It's what we're using in house over here :)
