Major control fix lands in Impact Winter

Impact Winter is out, controls fixes coming

I'm not much one for survival games but I have liked the sound of Impact Winter [official site]. It's a cute third-person survival RPG where, with the help of some friends, we're trying to survive in a post-asteroid snowland until help can arrive. And huzzah, it's now out!

Impact Winter: A Snowball’s Chance

It's interesting to note that while we absolutely did once have too many WW2 games, and later there certainly were too many zombie-based games, there can never be too many post-apocalyptic survival games. Why? Science can't yet explain, and theologians have only offered impetuous shrugs. But still they come, and still there's room. The latest attempt to join this grim-futured desperation for survival is Impact…
