Hmm. I see that a Linux version is forthcoming. I believe I shall remain in suspense until it is posted.

I got the demo. Looks like a solid game, but I wish that the walls would be transparent (a la Diablo). Sometime you get attacked by something behind a wall, it is annoying. I didn't see an option to toggle it.

I would've ponied the cash right away if it was randomly generated, but I'll need to play a little more of the demo to decide if I buy it as it is.

But overall the game feels like an isometric Dungeon Master. Which is good.

Quite ambitious and very promising, but I'm not sure just yet. Then again, I've only given the demo 10 minutes...

Probably would be better to specify that it is a demo and it's limitations. Looks good, tho.
