Could be better with WASD controls, but yeah, neat game.

The downloadable versions actually create a config file, but I haven’t done proper UI yet.

  • %APPDATA%\Honey Guardian\config.lua on Windows
  • ~/.local/share/LOVE/Honey Guardian/config.lua on Linux
  • /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/LOVE/Honey Guardian on Mac

Find the key_ lines and change like so

  key_changespeed = "l",
  key_changeweapon = "k",
  key_down = "s",
  key_fire = "j",
  key_left = "a",
  key_pause = "pause",
  key_pausemenu = "escape",
  key_restart = "none",
  key_right = "d",
  key_up = "w",
