Pitman On Linux

The desktop version of Pitman, the 3D Rogue-like with board-game style, got an update! Especially those who didn't like the fact that you couldn't configure the screen size in Linux (because the game engine we use, Unity, just doesn't offer its infamous configuration screen on all platforms) might now be delighted to hear about the added features of version 1.5d - but also Windows and Mac users have more options than before:

  • new option: camera control sensitivity
  • new options: resolution and quality
  • new options: sound and music volume
  • full screen antialiasing

It might be that you didn't even know that Pitman is out for Linux! The reason is that we didn't make a big announcement about that - so now you're informed. ;-) The official support according to Unity Technologies is "for Ubuntu 10.04 or later, with a graphics card that has vendor-made drivers installed", but we get reports that Pitman is very well working on other distros.

Of course, we still want to know if you have difficulties using the game or even encounter bugs. In such a case, just write us!

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).

Thank you for linux version !!! :) I have purchased the game, but how resizing the window ? I think that game view is too small. There is a solution for this ? (sorry for my bad english) ;)

Another problèm : mousewell don't work correctly. I can't zoom it... thank you ;)

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!

Nice little game, and there's more to it than you might have expected from the screens or the demo. Tilesets, enemies, items and spells vary quite a lot and the trickier later levels and more advanced spells (no spoilers) allow some interesting tactical twists. A little more polish wouldn't hurt, however. While the tiles, lighting, most sounds and especially the music are all fine, the characters and mobs could do with a little more detail. The lack of any character animation and the minimalistic…
