Okay, I got the game to launch by rebooting Itch and reinstalling the game, but it won't update to 0.35. I also can't download the new version. It's asking me to purchase it again. Am I not updating the game properly?
If you've installed the game via the Itch desktop app, it automatically installs the latest version.
Click the "Check for Update" button - make sure you're launching the game through the Itch app and not from somewhere else on your machine.
What version of the game does it say it's running? and what OS is it on?
Yeah, I'm launching it via the Itch app. When I click on the "Check for Update" button, nothing happenes. I can launch the game, and on the title screen - bottem right corner - it says : InDeb 0.34.2 - 3/28/2017. Above that it has a button labelled "Update Available". When I click it, it sends me to the website to download the latest version, but I'm reuqired to purchase the game, which I've already done when I first bought the game. So I'm not sure what's going on now.
Just an update. I am now getting 0.32.1 as the InDev version, and it won't update to the 0.32.2 InDev version.

That could be a bug with the Itch app if *nothing* is happening... but I have one more idea to try: Right click on the Version number in the Itch app (right above the "Check for Updates" button...
Advanced -> Revert to Version -> Select the top one in the list,
should read something like "#30996 - 23 May, 2017..." (that's the latest 0.35 one).
you click it, it'll close the popup window and you should see the game
start downloading. Then try launching again when it's done.
So the other behavior you noticed (Clicking the "Update Available" button from within the game, and being shown a browser page to buy the game again) ... is probably just because you're not logged into itch.io in that particular browser. On one of my computers, using that button always opens Chrome for me, even though my default browser is Firefox.
Sorry this has been such a pain. Not really sure whats going on.
Where did you suddenly get the 0.32.1 version? that's way older...
The 0.32.1 issue happened after I tried what you just suggested, which was to attempt to revert to a different version. I'm 99% sure that I selected the 23 May 2017 version, but now that version doesn't even appear. Maybe I selected a wrong version and ended up with 0.32.1, but it doesn't explain why the latest version is not showing up, does it?
Also, don't stress about. I'm sure there's a solution :)
