8.The “other” controller issue
 Some Xbox One and Xinput controllers not working properly
This problem is occurring to a small portion of our users. We’re still trying to figure out what is causing this issue but players who are using, or have used any third-party “key mappers” in the past seem to be encountering issues with their said controllers.
Steam natively supports both Xbox One and most USB Xinput devices and these third-party apps may be interfering with our input system.
If this case does apply to you, we would like to ask that you turn off (and/or remove) any third-party mappers until we find a workaround for this bug.
Additionally, please try accessing the controller settings through Steam to see if your controllers are being recognized properly.


That’s it for this Hotfix!
Some features we’ve planned on adding have been added but we mostly focused on incorporating what you, the users, asked for us!
In other words, if it weren’t for your voices, none of this could have been put together.
We’re so happy to hear from all of you all the time, and are really grateful for all your support!

We’ll continue to do our best in trying to keep providing the best experience GOKEN can offer to old-school gamers out there!
-Best Regards from the GOKEN Team-

About This Game

GOKEN seeks to bring back everything that was right about gaming in an action packed open world environment in the form of the good old Action RPG genre and have the old school gamers tremble in nostalgia.

Long ago, when gods lived amongst people...

There lived a swordsman who was given five swords forged by god himself.

Using these swords, the swordsman brought peace and order to the world.

People called the swordsman, "Wielder of the Five Swords"...

One day, during a fete to praise the gods, the blades of the swordsman turn against the gods for reasons unknown.

One of the gods, Ozone, furious with all his powers, sealed the swordsman away at the top of a mountain now known as Swords Peak.

This tale begins 5,000 years after the battle between the two, near a the small village of Cardina.

-Game Overview-

Seamless open-world game mechanics

While the game features a rather old school “quarter view” mechanic, the map transitions and event scenes, even the combat is all seamless as can be to enhance the overall gaming experience.

Real time strategic action battle system

Utilizing 2 primary attack buttons, users can assign different weapons to each button to create a unique combo that fits the users need as they go. Monsters, bosses and stage gimmicks can require a specific type of weapon at times creating opportunities for users to strategize their best route of approach.

Customizable Tattoo system

Utilizing "tattoos", users are given specific points upon leveling to get the protagonist inked as a form of powering up so it could be built to one’s own. Raising MAX HP and Stamina, learning new and special moves are just a few of many ways players are able to customize their character depending on their play style.
