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!

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!

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 ( Indiedb.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.

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…
