Planet of Lana is a cinematic puzzle platformer from Wishfully and Thunderful Publishing. We had a lot of fun with it, and you can read our thoughts here. The PC version runs quite well, and I didn’t face any problems with performance or stuttering. Though, if you’re running into any Planet of Lana controller issues, here is how you can fix those.

Fixing the Planet of Lana Controller Issues

I’ve tested an Xbox Series controller, as well as a DualShock 4 with Planet of Lana, and both work well with button prompts for each. However, by default, with Steam Input enabled, even though the DualShock 4 will work right away, you won’t see prompts. To fix this, you can turn off Steam Input.

Disable Steam Input

  • Make sure the game isn’t running
  • Open Steam and then open your Library
  • Here, right-click on the Planet of Lana
  • Select Properties
Steam library > Planet of Lana > Properties
  • Now, select CONTROLLER at the left
  • Click the dropdown icon next to Override for Planet of Lana
  • Set it to “Disable Steam Input
Steam library > Planet of Lana > Properties > Controller > Disable Steam Input
Disable Steam Input

That’s all you need to do, and the next time you launch the title, you’ll see the correct button prompts.

DualSense and DualShock 4 PSA: Used a Wired Connection

Make sure you’re using a wired connection with a DualShock 4 or DualSense controller. This is important because while developers have native profiles for PlayStation controllers, these don’t work wirelessly on Windows. This is especially important if you’re playing the Game Pass version.

Check Detected Controllers (Steam)

Make sure your controllers are actually showing up in Steam too.

  • Click on Steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
Launch Steam > Click on top left > Steam > Settings
Steam Settings
  • Now, click on Controller in the list at the left
  • Here, click on General Controller Settings
General Controller Settings
  • Any controllers you have plugged in will show up under Detected Controllers
General Controller Settings > Detected Controllers
Detected Controllers
  • If you have updated Steam to the beta client, then the controllers will show up like this:
