Conquer the forces of Death in A Wizard’s Lizard, an action RPG for Windows, Mac and Linux. Explore ever-changing dungeons, filled with valuable treasure and powerful items, while battling back the hordes of evil. Rescue townsfolk to improve your town and aid your next trek into the dungeon.

Wow, this looks very crisp indeed, A Wizard’s Lizard is a brand new 2d action RPG from Lost Decade Games, it is now available for $15 from them directly using the humble store widget or you can grab it from IndieGameStand as well or even FireFlower Games where you can pay in Euro, whichever service you prefer to support!

Looks like a decent action RPG to sit back into your chair with a nice controller, speaking of which I will be able to do so soon as I have ordered myself a PC controller, finally!

They also need help getting onto Steam, so give them a voting hand would you? Article taken from

So, how do you do anything without a "PC controller"? I mean, people usually use a keyboard and a mouse.

Seriously, this is the same thing as saying "coming to PC, Linux and Mac" - if you mean "Windows", say "Windows", and if you mean "gamepad", don't say "controller". Keyboards, mice, joysticks, pads, sticks, wheels - all those things are "controllers".

It's nothing like saying PC, people know a controller means a gamepad as you always say keyboard and mouse otherwise.

No one ever says controller when they mean keyboard and mouse.

You are just being pedantic.

@liamdawe - First, I do. A controller is a thing with which to control something, and that is how I use the term. Second, if you're trying to make that argument about "controller" vs "gamepad", the same thing could be said about "PC" vs "Windows" - the general public knows that when someone says "PC" they mean "Windows".

Besides, even if we ignore the fact that mice and keyboards are controllers, there are still flight sticks, driving wheels, joysticks, rock band instruments, and so on - all of which fall under the heading of "controller", even to the layman.

To be fair, the difference between "PC" and "Windows" is much larger than the difference between "controller" and "gamepad" - a gamepad is a controller (even though a controller is not necessarily a gamepad), while "PC" and "Windows" are only loosely related concepts. So you've at least got that argument on your side.

Still, I would argue that these are very similar issues, and you shouldn't dismiss one of them outright just because it doesn't bother you as much as the other one. They both bother me, because both terms are inaccurate. Both terms mean I have to guess at what the author actually meant to say.

I agree it is a similar argument to PC vs Windows, but the point is if someone says PC you have to dive further as it creates confusion.

If someone says controller, they 99.9999% mean a "game-pad". That is my point, it's not even remotely confusing and I've not seen in any of my years on the internet anyone say "controller" when they mean mouse and keyboard.
