Overgrowth is using AngelScript as its core scripting language. Resources for learning AngelScript can be found here:

Checking for Keypresses:

You can check for keypresses by using the boolean check function GetInputDown():

Syntax examples:

GetInputDown("a") returns true if the 'a' key is being pressed, returns false if not
GetInputDown("attack") returns true if the mouse left key is being pressed, returns false if not
GetInputDown("move_left") returns true if the "left key" is being pressed, returns false if not (by default this key is defined in the config.txt to be the 'a' key)

The following controls are designed to be relative to the player's preferences and are given a binding in the config.txt file.
