PC-controlsEdit

Before jumping into the game, you'll need to familiarize yourself with the basic controls including the ability to move your character and interact with your environment. You can access these key assignments by visiting the Controls section of the Configuration menu, which you can from the in-game menu using the Esc key or from the game's main menu. Additional controls can be accessed via the drop-down menu at the top of the key assignment screen. You can reconfigure the controls based on your own personal preferences.
