Controller support when uploading a finished game to Steam

Hi all, this is just a quick question regarding gamepad/controller support for a game I’m currently working on.

Currently I’m using a keyboard to play my game, but if I were to upload my game to Steam without adding the gamepad input extension, would players still be able to plug in their gamepads and customise input through Steam? In other words, can any game on Steam use a controller by just mapping buttons to keyboard buttons? (e.g. space key = Cross, A key = Square, etc.)


yes. more precisely Steam isn’t use our great controller extension, so Steam players can use their controller only that way! but you should create the controller config yourself, and upload it as an official config.

but if you do this, than your game hasn’t controller support officially.
