About the Software

GestureWorks Gameplay is a revolutionary new way to play desktop PC games on tablets, laptops, all-in-ones, and other touch-enabled devices. Gameplay is compatible with Windows 8. Using Gameplay, gamers can download, edit, build, and share their own touch control interfaces for virtually any PC game. Version 2.0 of the software was released on July 28th, 2014, and adds an Android app that uses Bluetooth to make Android devices into external controllers.

Gameplay is a first-of-its-kind gaming utility. Never before have users been able to create their own custom touch interfaces for a variety of games. The concept of an editable and shareable “Virtual Controller” is also new. As the Gameplay community continues to grow and contribute we will add tools to help crowdsource Virtual Controllers for popular games. There are more than 300 virtual controllers in our database, some authored by the Gameplay Team, but most of them shared by users.

As we continue to improve Gameplay and the community spaces on gameplay.gestureworks.com and Steam, we welcome your feedback. We look forward to seeing how you use Gameplay and we’d love to hear from you. Please let us know how we are doing.

It's a very useful program for Tablet PC owners. It supports most of the games and the number keeps growing. Great possibilities for setting up and creating your own controller for your favorite games. I am among the beta testers now, and I can say that GWG will certainly get better in the future.

When I first installed this, I was getting errors on startup. I felt like I just wasted my cash. Fortunately, the bug got immediately fixed by devs and, well, it kinda went downhill from there - instead of doing my job, I spent many hours trying out various games and playing with the settings, before the battery on my T100 finally drained. If you're a gamer and you have Windows 8 powered tablet, then this software is a must-have. It's highly customizable, supports many games and works just fine. Mind blown!

Some games don't work well with touch. But the ones that do work just fine.

I have only been able to get GestureWorks Gameplay to function on one of the ten or so games that I have tried.

The best way that I would suggest to aproch this program is to look for the virtual controllers on thier website to see if that game will work with GestureWorks.

It is a great idea that I hope will work better as they patch the program, but I would have to say save your money for now.
