Untitled Goose Game | Input Accessibility Options

Untitled Goose Game is a slapstick-stealth-sandbox, where you are a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village. Make your way from peoples’ back gardens to the high street shops and the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.

House House

Untitled Goose Game contains a number of input options that allow you to change the way you interact with the game. In this post I’ll go through what these options are and how they can be configured for Nintendo Switch, Windows, and macOS.

Action Mapping

Whether you’re using a mouse, keyboard or controller, Untitled Goose Game allows you to remap each action in the game to a different input. To configure the controller or mouse and keyboard mappings, go the Options and select Adjust Controller or Adjust keyboard and mouse

Both configuration pages show the current mappings, as well as an option to reset these to the default configuration.

Controller configuration. Reset to default. Move mapped to left stick. Run mapped to B. Grab mapped to A. Honk mapped to Y. Crouch mapped to ZL. Flap mapped to ZR. Zoom in mapped to L. Zoom out mapped to R. Back.
The default controller configuration for Nintendo Switch.
Keyboard and Mouse Configuration. reset to default. Up mapped to Up Arrow. Down mapped to Down Arrow. Left mapped to Left Arrow. Right mapped to Right Arrow. Mouse Move mapped to Mouse Left Click. Run mapped to Shift. Grab mapped to Z and Right Mouse Click. Honk mapped to Space. Crouch mapped Control and C. Flap mapped to X. Zoom in mapped to S. Zoom Out Mapped to A and Scroll Wheel. back.
The default mouse & keyboard configuration for Windows and macOS.

To remap an action, select it, and when prompted physically press the input you want to use. This will add the input to the default input (you can have a maximum of two inputs per action). To map only one input to an action, clear the existing action before remapping. Mapping the same input twice will have the same effect.

When using a controller you can remap every action to whichever input you prefer, except move, which must be mapped to either the left or right stick. You can also map actions to the four directions of the left or right joystick. So you could use the left stick to move and then set each of the four directions on the right stick to run, grab, honk, and crouch for example.

Controller configuration. Reset to default. Move mapped to left stick. Run mapped to Right Stick Down. Grab mapped to Right Stick Right. Honk mapped to Right Stick Left. Crouch mapped to Right Stick Up. Flap mapped to ZR. Zoom in mapped to L. Zoom out mapped to R. Back.
A configuration that binds the right stick directions to different actions.
Controller configuration. Reset to default. Move mapped to right stick. Run mapped to R. Grab mapped to A. Honk mapped to Y. Crouch mapped to ZR. Flap mapped to X. Zoom in mapped to Right Stick Click. Zoom out mapped to B. Back.
An example of a right hand only configuration.

Input Interactions

House House have also added options that change the way you need to interact with an input to perform a certain action.

run, bend (crouch), wings (flap), and zoom can all be changed from Hold to Toggle. So rather than having to hold an input down to continue to perform an action, you only need to press that input once and the action will continue to activate until the input is pressed again.

Options. Reset to default. Run set to Toggle. Bend set to Toggle. Wings set to Hold. Zoom set to Hold.
Choose between Toggle or Hold for certain actions.

Input Devices

Untitled Goose Game supports a number of input devices for each of its platforms. On the Nintendo Switch you’re able to use either a Pro Controller or a pair of Joy-Cons (in Handheld mode or detached from the Switch). On Windows and macOS, both mouse and keyboard are supported, as well as Xbox, PS4, and other controllers.

It’s also possible to use multiple devices simultaneously on Windows and macOS. So for example you could combine a keyboard with an Xbox controller and use different inputs from each.
