Bruh I'm really trying to make a YT video on this, but its not working!!!  

I guess it doesnt work on linux? Is there a way I can fix this?? 

Hi, any chance you could share a few more details regarding the issue? Happy to help if I can

Like, when I try to Install it on linux, It stops. and when I try again it doesnt work :/

like it goes halfway, and stops! xD

No worries - might be worth trying the following:

  1. Right-click the X86_64 file
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the "Permissions" tab
  4. Check the "Allow executing file as program" checkbox next to "Execute"

Haven't tried this myself though as I've not got a computer running Linux at the moment

There's also some great advice from Arquivo Morto Games  further down in the comments on this page if the above doesn't work

Let me know if you manage to get it up and running

Im right clicking the  X86_64 file but nothings happening, is there a specific file for me to right click?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - I've installed Ubuntu on an external drive to test, and it's working fine for me. The steps I took were:

Open downloads folder:


Right click on the file, and click "Properties":


In the popup which appears, select the "Permissions" tab, and enable the checkbox for "Allow executing file as program":

Once this is checked, close the popup and just double click the file to run.

Let me know if this works for you - if you can't reach any of these steps let me know what the issue is and I'll try and help.

Weird  with how the screen goes when i was recording it, but had a good time playing!

Thanks for playing! Sorry for the bugs and the screen issues, really glad you were able to work around them. Loved the moment where the cleaner was waiting around the corner for you, made me jump too!

Interesting play! A few bugs, but not bad at all! I look forward to more from you! 

Thanks so much! Sorry for the bugs, working on those for future projects - thanks for sticking with it anyway, the moonwalking was hilarious!

Never seen a game about gum-disease delirium, but way to raise awareness!

Thanks so much for playing! Loved the video, glad you had a good time with the game and thought your theories at the end were great - wish I'd thought of them when making it!

I loved your game, this engine is pretty good at linux. Oh, don't worry, friend! If you or our video producer friends need some in linux and I could help. I do that. I waiting other art games like that from you. I will be tunned. Thanks by this good sunday gifted to us. :D

its not letting me install 

im on linux

Hi - sorry to hear that the linux build isn't working for you - is there an error message when you attempt to run the file?

No, but it is a problem with downloading it in general it will say "installing" for a few seconds and then stop, i don't know if it is a problem with my computer or the game.

Thanks for getting back to me - I've not got a computer running linux to test it on at the moment, but the following steps were recommended to me as a good starting place: 

  1. Right-click the X86_64 file
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the "Permissions" tab
  4. Check the "Allow executing file as program" checkbox next to "Execute"

Let me know if this helps in any way, if not I'll see if there's anything else 

No, I playing all games on Linux.

You might, if you wish, this video to show for your players like me - How to do in this case.

chmod -v u+x * in all executable files. Later, you can run through both windows games in 32 bits and 64 bits. You should study more your operating system. I teach do it - run both windows applications in Linux: "How to do to run Windows 64 and 32 bit games and applications into you Linux"

How to runs the windows games and applications from both architecture (windows 32-Bit and 64-Bit) regardless you linux system

This game is horribly UNDERRATED!!! The tension was built beautifully throughout the game! The monster was simple yet creepy at the same time! I really enjoyed this game through and through! Keep up the good work homie!

Fun and enjoyable game. I did encounter a bug. The first time I found the workshop key, I couldn't unlock the door. Resetting fixed it. It's included in the video. 

Thanks for playing! Sorry about the bugs, I'll try and figure out what's gone wrong so I can prevent the same issues cropping up in future projects, glad you were able to work around it though. Really appreciated the feedback you gave at the end of the video too!

Thanks for playing! 

Appreciate the feedback, I'll work on the UI in future games to make it more user friendly and clean up the bugs
