Improvements, Xbox Controller & Mac Build.

Thank you very much for downloading and playing Ellen, it's well received by the community and we are excited to read what people have to say.

Ellen is out since a week and considering the feedback we have couple of things we'd like to highlight and address in this thread:

1. We are going to be working on the references of the puzzles make them easy for some. The puzzles are logical but tricky and we only decide to do it so to make it bit easy for some who are happen to be spending more time.

2. We decided to map Xbox controller in the game and we are going to cover the main game-play. However for puzzles you'd still need mouse and keyboard.

3. Get ready we are bringing Ellen on Mac!

If you have played the game already, we'd appreciate if you could leave a review on the store page. It helps everyone learn more about the game and definitely recommends the right audience.

At any point you'd like to connect with the developers, please start a thread in the Community Hub or leave a comment below. We'd love to hear from you!

We will post another announcement in the mid week with the progress!

“To help drive the atmosphere, the game also places a heavy emphasis on music and sound, creating some truly bone-chilling effects that will leave the player nervously laughing while mentally reassuring themselves that "This isn't scary!"”

“Ellen is a very creepy adventure game, filled with strange beings, and loads to interact with.”
