The announcement has just gone live on the GDC site of all the great games which will on display at the alt.ctrl.GDC exhibit from 1st-3rd March next year. We’re honoured to say that Objects in Space has been selected as one of the 20 games with weird alternate controllers to be accepted for the show!
The Objects in Space physical spaceship controllers have been with us now in their various forms at PAX Australia twice, PAX East, PAX West, RTX Australia and GX Australia. They mimic the interior of the in-game bridge and can be used to control almost all the functionality of their ship.
They function using Arduinos, and players are able to build their own at home using any combination of functions they wish. Early guides and blueprints for our setup are already available here on the site, and there’s much more information to come.
But of course, a keyboard and mouse works just fine for the game too.
We’re looking forward to showing the game in San Francisco!
