Anything else you want players to know before they play?

XKCDLand was made with pygame, and comes as a python package. To install from the zip provided for download here (tested with python2 and 3 on Linux and Mac, tested with Anaconda+Python3 on Windows):
pip install --user

To install from github:
pip install --user


Run in a terminal:

On Linux, if it does not work, try:
cd ~/.local/bin
(this has to do with the $PATH variable in your bash configuration)

On Windows:
It is best to work with python3, since that comes with pip by default, which is not the case for older versions of Python2. Navigate to the location of the downloaded zip file and run
> pip install​
> xkcdland​

Due to limited installation options on the machine we had for testing, we got Python3 by installing Anaconda, which comes with an Anaconda Prompt, where all commands given above were tested.

Pygame isn't a good choice for a game jam. There are a lot of submitted games and if getting yours running takes more than 2 minutes the chances are not many people are going to play it.
