Why the silence?

I guess some of you may wonder why I've gone mute all of a sudden? Well, on Monday the 25th of April me and my wife had our second child, a little baby boy! Naturally I've been preoccupied with diaper changes and all the other wonderful things you get to do when you have a child :-)

I have had some time to code as well, and I'm currently reworking all of the in-game menues to be much more touchscreen friendly with nice scrolling and so on. It will take a while longer before I can release a new version though.

In the meantime I suggest that you try out Legends of Yore if you want a roguelike fix (as long as you promise to keep Dweller installed):


  1. Congratulations! :)

  2. Congrats!

    Note I did not see anyway to email you so I wanted to post a couple of things here.

    Dweller is a very cool little game that kept me entertained for a few hours last night.

    My ONLY concerns were two things:

    The inventory screen - ouch. I see why you did it the way you did but man it is REALLY hard to control. Trying to heal is a chore, whenever you scroll down to see stuff it always picks something you don't want it to, sometimes drops things accidently, etc and generally it is very hard to control the inventory screen, when you scroll to the end it often backs out completely. Being able to use the back arrow on the phone would be an improvement but hopefully you already have some ideas on this. (and I think I seen that you do)

    The only thing was when I died I could NOT pick up from where I left off! The Horror! Everything I did was gone, hopefully you will consider a different way to continue (and I think you are from wiki page)

    Other than that great job bringing us a neat little hacker remininsant of the good ole days

  3. Hi there. Yes, all of the menues are terrible on a touchscreen device. I have a new version almost ready with proper scrolling menues. I've been meaning to release it for some time now. It's that last % of testing that is missing...
