It's written in my own engine/framework called "Substance" that is somewhat like Unity. It's based around a C++ 2d/3d/sound/networking engine and uses Lua as its main development language and has its own cross-platform IDE that can publish directly to multiple platofrms, currently Mac and Windows and web via a custom plugin (though that feature is a bit rough right now, hence Bitworld not havin a web version). I am also currently working on an iPhone/iPad export at this time. I hope to release it to the public in the near future.

As lua is my weapon of choice lately, I find this highly appealing.

Won't run at all on my crappy Toshiba Satellite laptop with on board video card, running Vista.  Has this been reported before?  Got to fire up the ole desktop I guess...

You might remove the drop.io link, since it's no longer functional.

Also if this could read actual DF fortress files I would love it forever.

The file Bitworld.zip has reached its download limit. Files in non-premium drops can only be downloaded 1000 times, both to prevent abuse and because at very high download rates our service becomes prohibitively expensive. If you need to download this file, ask the drop's administrator to remove this download limit by upgrading this drop, either through drop.io manager or a one-time upgrade.

Tried the game, loved the style. It was slightly disturbing that the character would usually only start to move in a direction after like half a second after I started pressing the button, though.

Awesome!
You should mention that on XP it needs the Visual c++ redistributable package installed (Won't run without it).
Great work!

Can you elaborate on what you're talking about Zorrito? I have XP, but I'm painfully computer illiterate.

hmmm... would your engine allow PC users to program for the iphone platform yet?  I'd really not mind giving it a shot, but I refuse to but a macbook just to tool around with iphone programming, especially when actual good apps and games get like 30 purchases.

I am working on iPhone export as we speak, and if all goes well I should have it available with the first release. Also, hopefully I will have native Linux export as well.

OS X version! Absolutely freaking lovely.

The charm of this game is immense!

Somewhat slow starter and seemingly empty though... I hope I missed the key for rummaging through furniture... otherwise really empty...

Not sure how this would translate to the iPhone, but if feature and content updates are promised, I'm buying it!

EDIT: Ok, so I understand this was a very short competition and a very short game. I guess I can live without the classic shops, potions, scrolls, weapons, armor etc. but for an iPhone (or any pay version) there absolutely must be something that actually varies the gameplay or introduces at least a few new things each level, and not just one or two new enemies, imo. But then again, given the amount of time this was completed in, this should probably be seen as more of a tech demo. It's a great tech demo, though. The combat gameplay is brilliant for all three classes, but without a goal or new things to see, it's in danger of becoming boring very fast.

I dont know if this has been said but...

All Norton Users! Norton will not let you open Bitworld, it detects it as a threat and will promptly delete the file.

So, I can play it  Cry

Has this problem been noticed before? On the PC version, the the right fifth or so of the screen doesn't display.

works on my Win7 x64 machine, but the gold amount is cut off. Also, if I get shot by an arrow while shielding, it can push me through the wall I'm standing next to. Good game though!

Although there might be an easy iPhone deploy button, you'll still need a Mac for the iPhone toolchain, simulators, app store submission, etc. Unity has the same restriction.  Afaik, there is no way to do real (sell on App Store) iPhone development without a Mac (or hackintosh...)
