Notes

  1. Unity engine build: 2017.4.30f1[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/873940/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (873940) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

  5. Crying Suns Controller Support Discord Server Snippet - last accessed on 2019-10-07
    "Keyboard support was planned initially but we had to drop it due to lack of resources towards the release. Maybe will it come back. Regarding the controller support, we are investigating console ports (but nothing confirmed though), so of course if a console release is planned at one point, we should be able to backtrack controller support to the PC version I guess"
