Month 33 of Landlord’s Super Early Access.
Implementing controller support made February feel like the longest month in the year. Fortunately, we persevered and managed to get support out on InDev Branch on Steam for beta testing.
There’s an obesity epidemic in Sheffingham, but thankfully we’ve reworked and rebalanced how calories work, along with a bunch of other fixes.
Oh yeah, the game now has achievements.
Read on for more.
We’ve added 25 shiny new achievements to the game. Can you roll a jackpot? Retire before 1984? Become obese? Prove it and share with the world how much of a grafter you are. We’ve even themed them on politcal badges from the period the game is set in. Cor, that’s nice.
Also worth noting that Landlord’s Super now supports Steam cloud saves. Noice.
The game now tracks your stats, from cement mixed to calories consumed to steps walked. It’s all viewable from the in-game notepad.
Controller support has entered beta testing, available through the InDev branch on Steam. Please report any issues you have and we’ll work towards getting the changes into the next patch. You can change to InDev through the game properties on Steam, and by selecting the Betas tab.
Xbox and Dual shock support is added. With the way these are implemented, you should be able to setup Steam controller and Steam Deck compatibility. Though we are interested to hear if players on these peripherals have any issues.
