I've been playing a really addictive game on the Nintendo Switch recently called Celeste. I looked up the company behind it and discovered the initial version of the game was built in four days on the PICO-8 fantasy console.

Nintendo Switch controllers

The game can also be played using the Nintendo Switch controllers. Once you pair the controllers with the macbook you can use a free program called Enjoyable to remap the controller inputs to the above controls.
