Pitman - Don't forget to enlight your torch

It's cold outside and we already need a pair of gloves while writing this text on our computers, warming us with a cup of mulled wine. Although the clock says 4 pm there is only some meager light reaching through the clouds, so we had to put on the lights since the morning. I could also mention the fog that is settling over the river we have in front of our door.

You can find that romantic...or just plain cold and depressing. But we prepared the right thing for such a time: A Christmas calendar! \o/

Today (+ tomorrow) our Rogue-like game Pitman is free for you to download from Desura. You also have the chance to win our current game TRI. Where? Head over to our calendar: Advent of Indies

Advent of Indies

Our game TRI is also part of the voting here on Desura for the Indie of the year. If you like us or TRI, you can help us! :D

Indie of the Year Awards

Above anything else, we wish you a really great December and have some relaxing holidays!

Live on IndieGameStand, people... go go go! Get your Desura keys!


Beat-the-average goodies include the OST, a strategy guide, and the Pitman APK for Android devices! Also, you get an alpha key for TRI, their other game ( Desura.com ).

Pretty awesome deal, I'd say.

Love the concept of the game, reminds me somewhat of the old board game "Hero Quest". Feels like equipment breaks too easily though, and maybe include a highscore table of some sort...?

Pretty good! I like the way everything falls into place and that you can even come across other Dwarves.

Just wanted to comment on the price issue. In my circle no-one really bothers with Desura, they're all Steam users. I agree no matter what you charge sales wont necessarily improve, but for that you need advertising. If people don't know it's there, people won't buy it. I think a game at the current price of £2.89 isn't costly, but it does depend on the quality, length of gameplay, replayability, tech support, and future updates

Maybe it's worth attempting to get the game included in something like a Humble Bundle (possibly the best known of the lot out there) with a Desura key, although I'll admit I don't know what that does for a developer other than promote them. Financially I couldn't comment

I've downloaded the demo, and if I think it's a great game I'll buy it, if I'm unsure I'll track the game and wait for it to appear on sale, giving me an incentive to splash out. I'll also do my small bit to promote it if I do like it :-)

We already had Pitman in two bundles (the Gamedev Bundle and Build a Bundle 2), both with Desura keys. As long as there is money involved, a bundle is always profitable (because your product is digital, you don't have any costs other than some time to answer some mails).
But Humble Bundle really is the only one where developers can make more than a little pocket money. All the other bundles (Indie Royal, IndieGala, or the two I mentioned) don't have that big impact on financial situation. What they all do, though, is making games less worth to the audience. Nowadays games get thrown at you everywhere, and it's hard to make a living as a very small indie dev without a "big hit" yet. We try that with our new game "TRI", but it's really really hard.

Thanks for trying the demo!

Thanks for the reply, interesting to hear from the Devs point of view and I can appreciate how hard it is for a small dev to retail their games, so hurrah for Desura!

Having played the demo I'd say the game is excellent and well worth the money! Can I ask just out of interest if the game is considered finished now or do you have any further plans for it?

Well, it's pretty much finished - we'd rather like to a sequel (or just a game in the spirit of Pitman) which would be planned better beforehand and would have more features. Time will tell, though.

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…
