Hi. Today we’re going to be looking at a game that’s great for children who are age three or over. Normally we find that games for children tend to be age 7 or 12 and when we’re
working with younger children it’s really tricky to find a game that’s appropriate for their age. So today we’re going to be introducing Super Lucky’s Tale [PEGI 3], which is a really cute game for ages three or over. So today we’re going to be using the Xbox One controller and the Xbox One Adaptive controller. The game mainly uses the Left Stick to move around a to jump, X to spin and Right Trigger to burrow. To do extra things in the game you might have to use A and the Right Trigger or A and X at the same time. So the A button, double pressing it can cause a double jump the A and the X button can be a jump and a spin and the A in the Right Trigger can be a jump and burrow. The Right Stick can also be used to move the camera left and right slightly. However, this doesn’t feature heavily in the game itself. Using the adaptive controller when plugged into an external joystick or in Copilot mode with the Xbox One Controller you can use the switch ports to enable an external buttons to act as your A and X and your Right Trigger. Thanks for watching. If you’ve got any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with SpecialEffect.
