Can't try it : Windows defender has blocked it


Hey there, sorry that happened! There may be an option to run it anyway and I think I've seen this happen with other Pico-8 games, but totally understandable if the system warningis too much of a deterrent.

i love this game but i think what there should be a style of game but with a computer if you don´t have anyone to play


Download options are available here on the game's page :)


+1 on the cartridge request. Any chance you could share it or upload it to the BBS so it could be played on Pico-8? Have a great week!


A BBS version might come later, when/if I can spend the time updating this how I want :)


Of course:) Thanks for the reply!

So, is the cartridge conversion started or not?
