- Hover your mouse over objects to see their name
- Left click can be used to interact with objects and UI elements, such as the return button or the inventory
- Double-clicking on an inventory item will make Stille inspect it
- Clicking and dragging inventory items lets you use them on the enviornment
- Right click is reserved for activating focus mode, when applicable
- Follow in-game tutorials for more detailed instructions

  Keyboard:
- Arrow keys either switches between objects, or navigates menus if open
- Enter either continues to the next line in dialogue, or uses items if the inventory is open

- Y and N select "Yes" or "No" in such menus, if open
- Escape (Esc) quits to the main menu at almost any time
- Hit M to toggle music from the main menu
- Click & Drag: While the inventory is open, navigate to the item that you want. It's name should appear. Then, hold Enter to "grab" it. Whilst still holding Enter, close the inventory by releasing right shoulder. This will return you to object navigation mode, only now as you switch between objects, an icon featuring the selected item will appear over the objects. Once you get to the object you wish to use the item on, just release Enter.

  (Xbox) Controller:
- Left control stick either switches between objects, or navigates menus if open
- A button either continues to the next line in dialogue, or uses items if the inventory is open
- Holding X ensures that dialogue is sped up when present (unlike A which only speeds up the current line)
- B allows you to skip past dialogue if you've beaten the game
- Holding X activates Stille's element (A.K.A "Focus Mode"), when applicable
- Hold right shoulder to bring up the inventory
- Double press left shoulder to use the return icon, if available
- Left shoulder and right shoulder select "Yes" or "No" in such menus, if open

- Click & Drag: While the inventory is open, navigate to the item that you want. It's name should appear. Then, hold A to "grab" it. Whilst still holding A, close the inventory by releasing right shoulder. This will return you to object navigation mode, only now as you switch between objects, an icon featuring the selected item will appear over the objects. Once you get to the object you wish to use the item on, just release A.

Note: Keyboard and controller support is considered lower priority, and thus their integration is done mostly through imperfect dynamic systems, and the in-game tutorials do not accomodate for them. Use these control methods at your own inconvience.
