It doesn't work. Whether I try running the game through the itch.io launcher or launch it directly from the game's folder, it just crashes immediately. All I see is the program flicker for a literal second on the taskbar.

Not that it’s particularly helpful, but have you tried downloading direct from the site (as a zip file) and launching it from that instead? I can’t seem to reproduce your error.

I've tried doing it just now, it still behaves the same way.


Many thanks for the speedy response, bought :)

You get both a DRM-free download and a Steam key with a purchase from itch.io

EDIT:: (the keys for this game have run out and I'm unable to generate more - I apologise for this, but unfortunately my hands are tied.)

Hi there, game looks wonderful :)

Before I purchase, can you please confirm whether the game is DRM-free as well as a Steam key, or it is only a Steam key? (I am one of those "anti-DRM" game players!)

Thanks in advance,
