I had the game files up for the original deadline and everything worked fine. However when I uploaded the version for the extended deadline it didn't show up. Sorry about that.

You have to download and install vcredist_x86.exe from microsoft to get rid of this error.

Msvcr120.dll is missin :(


I pinged the submitter on Twitter to make sure they're aware no download links are showing up.

The graphics look well done, based on the screenshots. There's no download or game link, though. At least you made something, but I would like to play it if it comes to anything more.

There is no way to play this game?
