Controller Update

Playstation 4 controller in front of the game screen. The controller's light has the same color as the avatar it controls.
The DS4 lightbar now matches the assigned player color.

Recent work on the Switch version of the game also resulted in new features for MODSORK on PC and a small Early Access update. The controller is at the heart of the game experience, so it made sense to make use of the various devices’ hardware features, like the PS4 controller’s lightbar.

As an ironic anecdote, the excellent XBox One controller’s features like the rumbling triggers are reserved for UWP applications (and thus the Microsoft Store, at least for now). I’m keeping an eye on it, because it would be really great to have per-avatar rumble feedback on the corresponding triggers.

Anyway check out the full update notes on Steam.
