Duh. I forgot I can just map the mouse buttons to my controller with a profiler utility. After about 5 minutes I was probably about 80% of my speed with the mouse. It’s worth a shot for anyone with wrist discomfort, though I don’t know yet whether it will cause the same problem. There’s always the keyboard too.
It’s painful when a couple of geeks have a great videogame concept but lack the skills and experience to really do it justice. I’ve never developed a game and yet I feel a strong urge to learn iOS development just to do this for them. I feel that way about Vic Davis too. :)
