City of Steam has just gotten a bit more user-friendly. If you’re like me, you may remap every one of the keys to your favorite MMORPGs. I’ve never used, nor would I feel right using, the W, A, S, D keys, despite it being considered the norm. My setup can be easily summarized by saying I utilize everything down from the Backspace key and to the right, and now City of Steam has added support for oddballs like me. The latest developer diary from Mechanist Games revealed that they have added keybinding support to City of Steam's newest beta build, allowing players to customize their key setups to their own liking and thus saving me from another unfortunate instance of slamming my face into the keyboard while screaming “WHY” while trying to play the game. Even better, the saves save on your account so that you don’t have to worry about rebinding if you decide to play on a different computer or laptop.
City of Steam also added jumping to the game, adding something that no MMORPG should be without and saving becoming one of those games that are criticized for lacking this basic feature like some others did at launch ~coughFFXIVcough~.
Check out the new dev blog for more on both as well as more on steambikes and jetpacks.
