The dual-touch steam keyboard doesn't work very well on regular sticks, too low precision for it - I've tried.
The blossom/flower keyboard that they have does work very well for sticks though, it's just not very intuitive if you haven't used it before.

On-screen controls like that are actually handled by the OS, which gives a common control applet for all games on a given console or "smart" device but also tends to look out of place (it's not in the same visual style as the game). SDL has a function to bring up on-screen keyboards when text input is needed, but I think it only works for systems that have an applet like that. If it doesn't, something needs to be made manually, so why not theme it like the game?
I'm guessing that macOS, Windows, and Linux don't have that? Otherwise, our work would be done for us.
