Aperture Desk Job Controller Guide
Click to read which controllers will support the game.
This game has full support for the Steam Controller. At one point, you need to touch the right “thumbstick” to use Gyro controls, just use your right touchpad instead (which acts like a thumbstick in this case).
Xbox Controller (360, One, One S, Series X/S) – Aperture Desk Job Controller Guide
This game also has “almost” full support for the Xbox Controller. In one sequence, you need to use the back paddles/buttons to activate something. You can instead press L1+L2 and R1+R2 to activate the Left and Right back paddles/buttons respectively.
The sequence that requires Gyro controls won’t work though, so you just need to use your regular Right Stick to play that one out.
Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (1/2)
Similar to the regular Xbox Controller, this game has “almost” full support for the Elite Controllers. The paddle sequence works just fine, but the gyro sequence, again, does not.
PlayStation 3 Controller – Aperture Desk Job Controls
Once again, this game has “almost” full support for the controller. You can’t play out the Gyro or the Paddle sequences as expected, but alternate controls are provided.
PlayStation Controller (4/5)
This game has full support for both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 controllers. The Gyro sequence works, (controls mapped differently), and the paddle sequence can be completed by mashing L1+L2 or R1+R2 for the Left and Right paddles respectively.
About Aperture Desk Job
Aperture Desk Job brings a new breath to the walking simulator genre, which has been made many times. Sitting behind a desk, you will experience an endorphin-filled world where lightning strikes.
You are a new entry-level employee and today is your first day. Your heart is hope, your feet are full of dreams, and you are determined to climb the corporate ladder. But life has different plans for you and these plans include chairs.
Desk Job, a free-to-play game for Valve’s Steam Deck, is designed to teach you the controls and features of the Steam Deck in a way that’s more engaging than it sounds.
Not Portal 3!
Keep your expectations low: This is not a Portal sequel. You can raise your expectations a bit now because this game takes place in the expanded universe that those games belong to. Desk Job puts you in the driver’s seat of Aperture Science. Then he removes the sliding part completely and adds a table in front of a chair.
Steam Deck: A Desk for Your Hands
So far you have mostly sat in real life. Video games were also virtual fantasy worlds from which you could escape. With the Portable Steam Deck, we’ve completely changed that. Now you’ll be able to run marathons and jump out of planes while keeping your brain and hands busy with the things you used to do.
