Unity: default input on different platforms and my workaround

In Brazil we have a word that I don’t think we can inarguably decide the translation to english: gambiarra. It stands for a dirty workaround, something that works but may break at any moment and may be a pain to resolve. Well, a gambiarra is what I did to circumvent one of Unity’s input system problems.

I couldn’t participate on GameBoy Jam 2 (although my shirt is being constantly used!), but I’m currently working on the idea I originally had for it. I’m really proud of how this game is turning out to be, but I’ll talk about that on a future post, because last weekend I could join this year’s Global Game Jam, YAY!
