You Spoke, We Listened!

Posted by Evolution Controllers (Creator)

Hey Backers!

Over the past 13 days we have been hearing nothing but compliments on the design and look of our controller. However, we have not gotten as many backers as we would like. The past few days we have spent countless hours reading comments on blogs, new stories, and other web sites that have covered our product.
   
As you may know our original design was, in our eyes, intended for emulators, robotics, and what ever people could dream. The one common comment on every website, and a number of personal emails, is “why is there only one analog joystick?”  When you ask for feedback listening is the first step. What a company does with that feedback is what makes them unique.

The image below is not a “finished product” but an accurate representation of what people are asking for. PLEASE (and we mean this) PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH YOUR FEEDBACK!

      please swap the position of the dpad and thumbstick, that would make it perfect to me!

      @Everybody - Thanks for all the feedback and your votes! Stay tuned as we will be releasing the next update shortly.

      @Adam I think you are correct!

      @ Evolution Controllers, Yep, placed my vote for the dual thunbstick controller model last night.

      I believe that it would feel more natural as opposed to the single analog stick in the centre.

      I don't think anyone likes the 1 analog stick idea. ;) 2 sticks is the reason I'm a backer, probably wouldn't have with only one.

      big time improvement with 2 sticks, for sure. drastically expands its capabilities imo. I'm not sure if the pad and stick should be swapped in position, maybe?? A thought, but I'm not certain.

      I definitely want the 2 analog inputs. Also, how about a button on the back of the controller? Kind of like Z button on N64.

      And yes I did take the poll. Voted for 2 analog sticks. ;)

      I have short digits on my hands so putting the left analog stick in the position easiest to reach with my thumb would be most helpful for me.(where ever that position is)

      I like the idea of dual analog sticks but I think having the two analog sticks side by side would be better (swap left stick and D-Pad positions). That would leave the D-Pad in the dominant place for most games and allow dual usage of the sticks for things like FPSes.

      @Casey Thanks for spreading the word! We too can't wait for the DRONE!

      @ Chris Guerin We are not sure yet. Of course making 2 versions of the controller will cost 2x more, so we will see what we are able to do based on the response.

      Did you place your vote?

    13. Casey Borders on

      I think two analog sticks really opens up a lot more possibilities! I keep spreading this project around! I want one of these so bad!

      The two thumb stick controller looks awesome.

      Will there be the option to select from the one or two thumb stick controller? Or will you be replacing the single thumbstick with the dual model?

      I think it looks amazing. Adding a second analog stick would provide more input options. I voted for 2 :D
