Default Looks Cool

This looks interesting and I might get it. I'm a little concerned that the inventory space is very small. This is just based on looking at the screenshots. There doesn't seem to be too many inventory slots. Is the correct and how does the inventory work? I love collecting loot and don't like games with a small inventory.

Deciding what to keep, and what to leave behind is part of the puzzle with Scallywag. Once you've learnt some of the game's intricacies, you'll always have *just* enough inventory space. Items stack too, so the number of slots can be deceiving..

If you like grabbing loot, Scallywag is for you! =)

Small inventory, it's part of the game is figuring out what to take and what to leave behind. I found it annoying at first, but it's fairly obvious very soon that you do not really need those gazillion knives you get off of every low level thug you whack.

Looks like a cross between NetHack and Diablo. I hope it has as many items as Diablo (or can be modded...)

There are almost a hundred different items in the game, but once you have the icon for a new item of your own creation, it takes around 30 seconds to add it in.

i hope there will be some kind of replay value ? for instance the hell & nightmare mode of diablo. so if you completed the game your character isnt unemployed. Also a high max level or at best no max level would be awesome

Hi Coobe, if you pre-order I'll add a nightmare mode just for you. =)

Never mind Coobe. We're adding a difficulty setting anyway. I hope you get to try the game somehow.
