To the developer: I think something might be wrong with the build of the current Windows version here on Desura. When I tried to extract it from the zip, I got 170 winrar errors all for "Unknown in method in PaperSorcererPC_Data/level0" and so on.

I redownloaded the file again to see if it was just a problem of that download, but same thing happened.

Can't seem to get the title screen to show at all. Kind of like a graphics glitch where it shows bars of color. Read the readme.txt and found nothing that'd help with this problem. I really want to try this game though.

Let me start by saying that I am loving this game. But I do have one complaint.

My very first party, I managed to get past the first "boss" the knight.
My second party that I am conducting a LP of the game with, I managed to beat the Knight.

But every single party (with about 7 different combinations of characters), I have done since I have not been able to defeat the knight. I hate to sound like a complainer, but with the loot being randomized, and there being a limit to level 3 characters by the time you face the knight, the knight just simply kicks too much ***.

His smite evil is able to kill most of the character classes (including the scorcer) in one hit even with the characters having a defense of 12. I have managed to do well over 300 damage to him consistently and by that point I have one character left standing after using 3 potions, and 4 resurrection crystals to buy time.

Now I am playing the game on hardcore, so I fully expect a challenge. With the LP game, it is VERY challenging and I am loving it. But that first boss (considering the lack of ability to farm or properly prepare for the fight due to the random factors) seems to be WAY WAY WAY WAY too over powered, becoming more frustrating than challenging since it has literally stonewalled any possibility for victory unless I manage to find the right items and pick the right characters.

The only party of characters I managed to beat the boss with was "Sorc, Werewolf, Cultist,Shadow" and "Sorc, Werewolf, Witch, Shadow". Is this game still being worked on balance-wise? Or is it a final form?

As I said, don't want to come off as a sore loser, or a complainer. I love this game, it just seemed to be impossibly punishing to a player in an an unfair fashion due ot the randomimzed loot and pounding enemies instead of poor player planning. (I got slaughtered in an area I was wrecking by one random fight that was unwinnable every time it appeared.)

Was 'The Dark Spire' an influence on this game? They look rather similar.

I think both The Dark Spire and Paper sorcerer are inspired by wizardry.

I'm loving this, the black and white 'hand drawn picture' style draws you into the world more than other rpg's, the music is so weird that it also emphasizes the peculiar place your running around in.
I really like the interactions with other beings and the puzzles, so far i've only had a few and i'm hoping there much more later.

As reddoh said the lack of skill cooldown indicator is an issue, also when saving the save menu should close and drop you back to the options so you feel like it actually saved, atm the filename doesnt change and you left wondering if it saved or not.

Linux Mint 13 (32-bit): demo crashes right after the intro.
"Aborted (core dumped)".
Unity is evil.

Gah, behind on emails! Forgive me if I take awhile to get back to you. Trying to finish up the next patch and am falling behind on the inbox Mar 28 2014, 9:10pm
@itchio @deviever I think a list of tag suggestions would help. Or even just a big list of all the tags in the system. Mar 28 2014, 8:37pm
@itchio Looks like the itch.io website is down, unless my internet is being a flake. Mar 28 2014, 8:29pm
@itchio Curious, but would it be possible to buy a gift copy to save for later? To send it later or if you haven't decided the recipient yet Mar 28 2014, 8:24pm
