Oh, the many things I cannot tell you, readers! They are many, and they are things. One thing I can tell you is that argh, howl, yes, I am indeed working on the enormous pile of hundreds upon hundreds of indie games that are surely aiming to destroy me. The second thing is that it’s time once more for the world famous round-up of the best indie games on Steam that, round here, we call Unknown Pleasures.

Maintaining a stoic silence this week: spikey frights, fighty tykes, and flighty sprites.

First of all, we’d like to thank you for the feedback shared since Dark Devotion release.

The development team has been working hard on some issues reported by the players ever since. We’re now ready to deploy our first hotfix to correct them.

You will find the changelog detailed below :

- Fixed issue with steam controller management.

With steam controller support active, the title will work with controllers.
Please note that the layout displayed will be always Xbox, even with the PS4 controller plugged. Moreover, the stick sensitivity is no longer managed by the title settings but by Steam Settings (please check out user configuration).

- Fixed Keyboard inputs when using a controller on specific Chinese OS.

- Fixed title unable to close properly on Windows 7

- Fixed performance issues in the library

- Fixed map displaying tablet that was not present in a room in the sewers

- Some text and lore fixes.

- Other minor fixes
Dark Devotion - Arnaud - Dotemu

Thank you all for sharing your feedback with us! After carefully investigating this problem, we did a manipulation that should have fixed the issue. In order for it to be active, you must:

- disconnect your controller
- restart Steam
- plug your controller

This should allow you to play Dark Devotion without problem.

In the case the issue is still present after restarting Steam several times, there is an individual manipulation that can also fix the problem. Here are the steps to follow:

- On Steam, enable the big picture mode
- Bring up the Steam overlay ingame
(tab + alt)
- Select Controller Options
- Set "Steam Input Per-Game Setting" to "Forced Off"
- Restart the game if needed

This should fix the issue and allow you to use your controller as well.

Thank you all again very much for your patience and understanding.


Hello everybody,

First of, thank you all for being so active for the release of Dark Devotion. The whole team is really excited to see you all so supportive. Thank you!

We got several reports regarding controllers not working with the game. We are deeply sorry if you are encountering this issue and we will do our best to fix it as soon as possible.

It seams that this issue may be hardware related. If you are encountering this issue, please let us know in the comment section bellow what controller do you have so we can investigate further and work on a fix.

Could you also please let us know if you have an Antivirus software installed and if so, which one?

Finally, could you please let us know if the "xinput1_3.dll" file is present in the game's folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dark Devotion")?

All this info will help us greatly in understanding where the issue may come from.

Thank you for your help and support.
Dark Devotion

Developer Hibernian Workshop has announced that Dark Devotion, its intriguing (and gloomily attractive) side-scrolling action-RPG, will be making its way to PC, PlayStation 4, and Switch "early" this year.

Dark Devotion first came to light back in 2017, when it successfully raised 31,796 Euros (around 28,690) on Kickstarter. It casts players as a Templar, sent to explore the depths of a mysterious, "unforgiving" temple in search of answers "that will challenge your very existence."

In some respects - it's a moody, Dark-Souls-esque rogue-like, with a tight pixel art aesthetic - it's all awfully familiar. However, Dark Devotion has a few tricks up its sleeve that will hopefully set it apart from its peers. For starters, its four large worlds are entirely hand-crafted (no procedural generation here), and there's a strong emphasis on story and meaty, stamina-based combat - featuring various weapons, armour, and relics - with a particular focus on diverse boss fights.
