Photosensitive Seizure Disclaimer

This game features flashing lights. If you've had photosensitive seizures, due to flashing lights or playing video games, play at your own discretion.

The game features a Flashing Lights Reduction Mode. When in game, press pause, then turn "Flashing Lights Reduction Mode" on or off.

Important Notes on Controllers

When you connect a controller, it is now detected automatically whether you are using an XInput Controller or a Direct Input controller. However, there are still some drawbacks if using a Direct Input controller.

Which would be:

Mapping might be unreliable.
Some Direct Input controllers cut in and out creating a “stuttering effect” with the player movement.
Direct Input controllers do not rumble when used without external software (Use external software at your own risk.).
