Custom Key Binding added!

March 25th, 2014

A lot of you have been asking about custom key binding. While we have had custom key binding partially implemented in Super Motherload for some time, it was largely broken. Today's update fixes those issues, and allows players playing with a keyboard, or even multiple players on the same machine using a keyboard, to bind keys of their choosing. Custom key bindings are saved automatically.

While Super Motherload still plays best with a gamepad, for those playing with a Keyboard please note that keyboard ghosting, a hardware limitation of pretty much all keyboards, will make some key combinations work less than optimally, especially when playing with several players on a single keyboard.

If you do have an extra keyboard (or three) kicking around, you can plug multiple keyboards into the same system to mitigate ghosting with multiple players.

More information on keyboard ghosting is available here:

Reviews

“An awesome blend of obsessive compulsive profiteering and addictive, satisfying gameplay.”
4.5 / 5 – Game Revolution

“The sci-fi ’80s vibe is delightful and the perfect setting for this ridiculously addicting game. I find myself coming back to it at the end of every day, ready for a new adventure underground.”
8 / 10 – Destructoid

“Much like the comic strip I honestly can’t describe why this game is so fun. Gabe and I played it for hours last weekend and had a great time. It’s got some puzzle elements that you can choose to engage with if you want to but you can also just dig. It’s a very relaxing game and you can lose a couple hours to it wasy without even noticing.”
