Ahh no windows build? :(

Developer

Sorry, maybe next time but I typically primarily use Linux and macOS ^^;

Hello, Sorry I can't get it to run on linux :/ 

Developer

If you run it through the terminal it should tell you why it's not running. What information is it giving you for this?

Hello! I can't get the Mac version to run. The error message was big, so I put it here: https://pastebin.com/R44MQuBe Let me know if you can address this issue & I'll check back later. :)

Developer

Hey there, thanks for letting me know!

This should be fixed now.

Hiya - the Mac app is still crashing for me. Log below.

This could definitely be my fault since I'm on OSX 10.9.5, which is out of date! Yours is not the only entry I've had issues with this week. Maybe don't worry about it unless other Mac users report problems. Sorry & thanks for looking into it before. :)

Hi Max, I've just gone ahead and tweaked the OS X build so it no longer depends on X11. If you could give it another try then that would be really awesome! :)

I get this error on launch from the new Mac file: https://pastebin.com/TDmtVX9q 

It's cool of you to keep trying to make this work. Have you gotten any other Mac users to try it out, maybe with OSX 10.10 or 10.11? I hate to think that it's just my outdated OS that's causing you this headache. Sorry again!

It looks like the build still requires OS X 10.12 to run; for some reason I apparently have OS X 10.11.6 (lol), so I couldn't play it. I don't have time to upgrade right now, otherwise I would check it out--sorry! I'm guessing that a lot of people are like Max and I and haven't upgraded in forever. :/ Graphics look very nice, though!
