Suggestion: 3 item shortcuts
In addition (or at least as an alternative) to removing/changing the RNG (which I don't like at all and it seems I'm not the only one... but that's another topic), I'd like to suggest another feature: adding a keyboard key and a joystick button for each of of the 3 available items.

It is sad to have to press "Up -> Up -> A" or "Down -> Down -> A" to choose an item. I have a joystick, and I currently use the mouse instead, because with the mouse at least I can choose my item with a single click, which is faster and therefore less frustrating.

With a keyboard, it could use the keys 1,2,3. Even on a joystick it should be possible to find 3 unused keys (at worse by combination, for example LB+X,LB+Y,LB+A).

Apart from that, nice work! The music and graphics are gorgeous.

We respect your wishes, but we can't promise that it will work exactly that way. We're working hard on it right now. Thank you for helping us!

Stay tuned!

Hi phrounz! We've added keyboard shortcuts for items (1,2,3 keys) in the last update. Unfortunately, all appropriate gamepad buttons are already mapped. Now we're working on a cool game mechanic update :)

Thanks ! The keyboard shortcuts for items (1,2,3 keys) seems to be not working anymore though.
