Stepworks now supports game controllers! Plug your game controller into your computer via USB (or connect with Bluetooth if you’re feeling industrious), load up a stepwork, and start pressing buttons...

Stepworks also supports images. Just include the URL to any GIF, JPG, or PNG file as "dialogue" in your script. Here's an example inspired by the film WarGames. Try performing it yourself.
