I had an epiphany a few hours ago… One of the annoying things about dice programs, my own DiceChucker included, is that using them can be quite inconvenient. It requires bringing the window into focus, mousing around, it’s just a pain if you’re in the middle of a game and trying to manage all your other stuff.

So I created a new dice roller called MicroDie. What sets MicroDie apart is that its design focuses on ease of use and unobtrusiveness. It stays on top of all other windows, but its small footprint (the screenshot is full size) means it dosn’t get in the way. Even better, you can use the number pad keys as a shortcut to roll dice, even while working in a different program!

  1. The only thing that would make it better — particularly as you’re capable of rolling for results even when in another program — would be to have the current results display in the title bar/task bar.

    Thus, you can roll while in other programs and simply glance at the task bar to see the result.

  2. It’s always on top, so it will never be obscured by other windows.
