A Tutorial on Reading Input From USB Keyboards & Controllers

by next-hack

Hi there,

Thanks again to everybody who helped us reach our goal. Today is the last day of our crowdfunding campaign, and, to celebrate—you guessed it—we’ve published another tutorial! This week, we walk you through some of the techniques you’ll use to create your very first uSVC game.

Additional tutorials will be published in the coming weeks!
