More Controller Support!

Over the past several weeks, I have delayed the release of this game in order to make sure I have the most controller support I can, and though I should explain some of the new options for control in Land War:

  • By default, all controllers connected to the PC will be able to join the war. Bluetooth, Steam Controls, xBox, Nintendo, Playstation, and even unrecognized generic gamepads are usable and will be labeled on the player select screen.
  • Players join in order rather than in their controller's slot, to avoid issues like the 10th controller plugged into the computer not responding.
  • There is a new "use xInput" setting available on the settings screen. Turn this one in order to use Steam Controllers or to remap your controls with Steam Input. By default this is currently off.
  • There is a new setting to toggle between direct input and raw input, two APIs that have different levels of support for different controllers. The default is raw input, but you should try switching this in case your particular controller is having trouble.

Steam is currently reviewing the latest build, and I will set a final release date when it passes!

Thanks all,
Brian

About This Game

Land War is a party game you can actually play at a party!

Teach your friends, mom, grandpa, or anyone else to play in minutes and invite everyone in on the big screen with 8 player local multiplayer!

Simple controls - choose between moving up, down, left, or right and that's all there is to it!

Every land war player starts as a humble square in a sea of unclaimed land. But as you move, you capture the squares around you, growing at an exponential rate!


Watch out as you encounter your friend's square armies - only the clever players will survive. Clashing with enemies result in stalemate, but players are vulnerable when they turn away!


Each match lasts around 10 minutes, so it's easy to swap players in and out as the night goes on! Have fun with over 20 maps and several experimental settings.

8 gamepads are supported, and 2 players can play on a keyboard with WASD and the arrow keys in case you don't have enough controllers lying around!

This game is a brand new concept and comes from sheer love of local multiplayer and disappointment that so few video games can be played with more than 4 players on the same screen. I'm looking to get feedback here on Steam before a console release, so please send any issues and gameplay suggestions to the game’s contact email or community hub. Thanks for playing!
