“We’ve noticed a trend of Switch players using gyro motion controls in conjunction with standard controls to gain more accuracy,” commented Dominic Obojkovits, co-founder, Lead Designer & Programmer at Krafted Games. “We think this control system will enhance the FPS experience of POLYGOD so we’re adding it as an optional feature for all Switch gamers.”
