Although most video games handle well enough with your standard controller, there are a few outliers that require something a little more unique. From fighting games to flight simulators, these games either need more buttons than a standard controller has or need some form of joystick or slider that’s not included with a standard controller. Andre Bandarra, who enjoys playing paraglider games, needed more than a standard controller to enjoy his game. However, because there really isn’t a market for paraglider games, he decided to make his own custom controller from scratch.
“I’ve played a few different paragliding games before and always found the problem of what controls you use. Mouse and Keyboard aren’t great. It’s kind of similar to a flight sim or car racing game, you need a joystick or racing wheel really,” Bandarra said.
