This is a great little game, really hope you do the second version. I like the references you named, I've played the same stuff and used to make pen and paper dice games of a similar type to pitman.

But now I'm in the mainstream games industry, so can't make fun games ;)

Best of luck, I'll try and promote your stuff as much as I can.

A few of ideas;

Player classes and races to select
Non regular tile shapes
Quests to complete
Don't animate the characters!
Formalize / reinvent the magic system, make it usable by enemies
Add more types of special square, not just health / mana / food
Add traps

You've already got your own ideas of course, but maybe some of that can help you somehow.

Anyway, great game.

Hey, thanks! Your ideas are good, some of them are already in our book of ideas. :-) We'll see if we ever can do a second Pitman - I'd sure like to!

Last idea... it'd be cool for monsters to have special abilities like poison, cripple, mob, teleport and so on...

Hi dev, remember there are still problems in the Linux version.

a) Buggy mouse zoom.
b) No configuration screen.
c) Tiny window size.
d) Unknown keyboard shortcuts.

Don't we deserve a new version since August? We raised 17% of the total in your last sale.

OK, I created a new version, but we'll have to wait if/when Desura will approve it. You will then be able to choose the resolution in the options, and the mouse zoom should be fixed (I hope).

You can edit a configuration file to resize the window: ~/.config/unity3d/Rat King Entertainment/Pitman/prefs

But I don't know how to fix the mouse wheel, It does not work for me either. Help!

Sorry for the late answer - instead of mouse wheel you can use Shift+W/Shift+S, if I remember correctly. I will look into the mousewheel issue soon!
