A downloadable game for Windows

Varuna is a prototype retro shooter .

If your pad is not working properly with the game, please try installing the joytokey : http://joytokey.net/en/download

The setting is available in the option menu.

You can pause the game using your pad, but to disable it, you'll have to press any key of your keyboard (Ok it's totally stupid but it's a bug).

Enjoy !

Je veux jouer, mais j'ai un clavier QWERTY :/

Pas de manette ?

j'ai un joystick, mais il semble cassé. (Excusez mon français)

Je joue grâce à J2K maintenant, merci! C'est amusant!

Ctrl+Y brings up the default Keybinding menu :)

Really wish that I could play this game since it looks rather interesting, but unfortunately the keyboard controls make the game unplayable. Please add an option for WASD or Arrow Keys for movement. Better yet, make it the standard.

Ok, the keyboard layout for the controls on this game make no seance. Maybe you are using a different key board layout. But the way the keys are layed out now makes it unplayable for me. It would probably be a good idea to let the player rebind the controls.

Even if you just use the standard Fusion key rebinding from the menu bar. I know that's not in keeping with your games style but it would make it at least playable. As it is now the movement controls are very awuardly placed AND bacwards.


Vraiment super fun et addictif ! Bravo ! j'ai vraiment hâte d'avoir la suite.
