IMHO... massive mistake.  A game as described absolutely needs keyboard interaction.   Otherwise everything will be off menus like a console.

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    Let them say what they want, the chance of this game seeing the light of day is like 25% at best anyway. Reality sucks, I know.

    I've never yet seen a PC game with gamepad support that worked right out of the box.  The way they break it varies wildly from one game to the next, and sometimes they get it to almost work except for one creatively stupid thing that no one else does and that makes it unusable.

    The right way to do gamepad support in a PC game is to make it so that every single action can be mapped to one or two arbitrary combinations of one, two, or three keyboard keys (or mouse buttons).  That gives the flexibility to allow external gamepad software to map things however you want.  As an added bonus, it's also the right way to do keyboard support in a PC game.

    That FFXIV offered such flexible controls is the biggest reason why the game was fairly gamepad friendly even though the built-in gamepad support didn't recognize several buttons on my gamepad and you might initially expect that such a complex game would be rough on a gamepad.  It also helped that FFXIV allowed using up/down/left/right and normal buttons to navigate menus where you'd otherwise need a mouse click.

    Let's be honest:
    It's just one more point on a list of promised features that will never happen.

    Minecraft? Which is actually VoxElyria, as you well know is not the actual game. It is simply a platform on which the player base is able to get access and test the backend mechanics before and during the graphics design.
