  4. okay, so i discovered this game over the holiday when i realized there must be a roguelike for android devices. i downloaded a few and found yours and holy crap, it's fantastic. all the other games have been deleted and yours has devoured my time. i used to play stone soup like crazy for a few years but i was looking something a little more stripped down and dweller was exactly what i wanted and more.

    i looked at the forum but i didn't see a place to specifically say to you good job and i donated some euros to you.

    i have some suggestions and comments so imma knock some stuff off super quick, feel free to disregard.
    -3 classes is enough. maybe add perks that allow certain classes to equip weapons/items outside their sets? even if not, three classes is the right amount.
    -pipe dream maybe but a cave or hut, or space in the tutorial dungeon with a chest you can save one item in for next play? that way if you find an amazing named bow as a warrior or mage you could store it and then when you die bam you can use it. i understand there's room for exploitation of this and it kind of defys the whole permanent death thing but whatever.
    -improved death screen, yeah for sure. even a randomly generated description of my dudes descent based on his stats and killcounts?
    -genders. sometimes ladies are fighting folk? not a huge deal but i dunno equity and stuff.

    this is getting long so maybe i'll just register on the forums and post but yeah tldr; great job!

  5. I'm glad you found Dweller and enjoy playing it! Dweller is very much a game where development is driven forward thanks to player feedback and suggestions. If you like to get involved and give feedback it's perfectly fine to do it via e-mail or here in the comments, but it's even better if you join the forum and join in on the discussions there!

    Let me answer each of your points:

    * Classes. Agreed, I think three classes is enough as well.
    * Leaving an item to your predecessor. The idea has been brought forward before, in slightly different variations, and so far I've decided to not implement anything like this.
    * Improved death screen. Yes, this will be improved soon.
    * Genders. Character selection is pretty streamlined now, you don't even get to name your character. I might add things like naming your character, choosing gender and distributing character points in the future, but for now it will be a simple choice of class and nothing more.
