Full controller support now pushed

Full controller support and menu improvements have now been pushed. The game should autoconfigure XBOX 360 controllers so that the BACK button brings up the config menu. The left shoulder button will now act as the SELECT button (in-game) by default. Retrousb adapters continue to be auto-configured however you can only access the configuration menu with a keyboard in this case, due to fewer buttons being available for mappings.

If you have a controller similar to the XBOX 360 controller which you'd like to see the game auto-configure, please find log.txt in the local files directory of The Legends of Owlia and paste the contents in a comment. There will be a listing of your connected controllers and I should be able to add them for future builds.

Full controller support coming tonight

Due to excellent feedback received early in release, we're going to push a build tonight which has the following improvements:

-Xbox 360 controllers will now be fully supported including for the configuration menu. SELECT will now be mapped by default to the LEFT SHOULDER button. The BACK button will now launch the configuration menu. Now you can play Owlia from your couch if you have a Steam box.

-The configuration menu has been improved and clarified. RESET is now called RETURN TO TITLE and you will be prompted within that same menu option for easy access by the xbox 360 controller. SAVE AND EXIT is now called SAVE GAME AND EXIT, to clarify what it means. Finally, EXIT MENU has been added for dismissing the menu, but you can still use the ESC key or the BACK button on xbox 360 controllers.

Hope this helps!

About This Game

The Legends of Owlia is Gradual Games' second release for the NES, now ported for your PC! It is an action-adventure game inspired by StarTropics, Crystalis, and the Legend of Zelda.

Once upon a time. On a world far beyond imagining. Six great owls brought forth a land called Owlia. Together, they reigned in peace and wisdom for eighty thousand years. However, their pride in the beautiful land and sky of Owlia led them to forget the vast vast seas... Mermon, King of the Mermen, oft rose to the surface to view the Land of Owlia. His desire for sunlight, sky, and green forests grew until he decided the seas were not enough for him. He endeavored to summon the six great owls one by one. He began sapping their powers of flight, empowering his minions to float towards the Land of Owlia to claim it for his own. However, one great owl eluded him.. Silmaran, the White King. Soaring high above the Land of Owlia, as Mermon's forces grew in power, he searched for one who might heed his call to rescue the great owls and restore the Land of Owlia.
