How to check if Soulmask has controller support

When it comes to Soulmask, adapting your desired controls is as important as choosing your starter mask. If you want to check whether Soulmask is playable with a controller on Steam, there's a very simple method to do so.

Soulmask Steam library page indicating controller support

After the game is fully downloaded and available to play in your Steam Library, get your chosen controller ready. Whether it's a PlayStation or Xbox controller, you can connect it to your PC setup via a supported USB cable, and within a few moments a prompt will pop up on the top right side of the game's page. It will indicate the current status of controller support for that specific game.

In the case of Soulmask, unfortunately, the game does not have controller support right now. If you plug one in, a prompt will say 'Controllers Not Supported' (as seen above). However, per the game's Steam FAQ page, there is apparently a controller scheme developed but it has yet to meet expectations during testing.

Furthermore, players can still try to use a controller with the currently unfinished scheme, but there's no guarantee for its functionality. If our attempts at it are anything to go on, the meticulous process of trying to rework every single control with varied success really isn't worth the struggle.

Will Soulmask get controller support in the future?

Further information about controller support on Soulmask's Steam FAQ indicates that the team is absolutely committed to optimizing that support for future updates. So it's safe to say that Soulmask will be playable on a controller at some point, but we just don't know exactly when yet.

In the meantime, Soulmask is still best enjoyed with a keyboard and mouse setup. If you're experiencing any other issues with the game, the best way to reach out to the dev team is via their official Discord server.
