Dual stick(AKA Pro mode) support - Changelist for r19784

This is a pretty important update.
We take people's comments seriously. With this one we needed to take our time, digest everyone's input on this and go back to the drawing board. During our prototype phase, we toyed with dual stick controls and couldn't get them to the level of satisfaction we we're looking for.
Regardless, we decided to give it another go. Now that all the pieces of the game are in place, it's easier to take a step back and find the best solution. We still feel like the default option is more accessible but we think giving an option for the more hardcore players is also important. Give it a try for yourself.

“Flinthook, a beautiful and fast-paced action game built around a grappling hook, was my favorite game at PAX East last week.”
Kotaku

“...within seconds of picking up Flinthook, the controls felt responsive and comfortable, like we'd been playing the game for years.”
Polygon

“With Flinthook, I feel that Tribute might be on the cusp of success like they've never seen before.”

About This Game

Flinthook is a fast action-platformer with “roguelike” elements. Become space’s greatest pirate with your hookshot, pistol and slowmo powers!


  • Zip around with your mighty hookshot! Aim freely and toss your giant anchor at golden rings to propel yourself around the levels at high speeds, giving you the agility and swiftness needed to dodge hazards and enemy bullets.
  • Shoot in 360’ through your Blasma Pistol! Take down all sorts of enemies with fresh hot bullets!
  • Look really cool with slow-motion powers! Slow down time to adjust your aim or pull off a tight stunt - do it often, it recharges real quickly and it makes you at least 200% cooler.


  • Blast through randomly-assembled pirate spaceships! Each level is special, as ships are procedurally built from hundreds of hand-crafted rooms, modified by various variants, filled with extraordinary treasure and populated by random waves of enemies.
  • Hunt down the pirate lords of the Cluster Clan! Feed your compass creature to pinpoint the bosses’ location, then take them down and bring your bounty home. Your rivals are no space chumps, make sure you’re ready for the challenge!
  • Collect rare relics and powerful perk cards! All the treasure you loot builds up your legend - unlock new equippable perks as you level up, buy permanent upgrades in the Black Market, and hoard collectible relics and lore pages!
  • Uncover some mysterious secrets?! I don’t know, are there secrets in this game? O_O
