Windows Defender quarantined the file, saying it has a trojan! I had to delete the file before I even launched the game.

Hey! My apologies for the late reply.

Yeah, we're aware that currently certain AV like BitDefender doesn't like our files. We're not really sure why, but we've run the game files through different AV like McAfee and Avast and Kaspersky a couple times, and they always came back as clean. So my apologies, but there's nothing we can do about it.

It's not BitDefender, it's not "certain AV." It doesn't necessarily suggest trust on your part when you say "We're not really sure why ... There's nothing we can do about it."

In the past three years I've had this computer, your file is the only one that got flagged by Windows Defender (which, I never even knew was running until I downloaded this ZIP).

You should do better than "We know but tough shit lol."

Our apologies, but there really is nothing wrong with our game files. We've run them through multiple AV softwares e.g. Avast, McAfee, Kaspersky, and the files always come back as clean and no detections at all. We even asked one of our team members who is using Windows Defender to test the game once again just to make sure. She downloaded the latest version of the files again from itch.io, ran it, and had no problems at all. Windows Defender did not flag it as a virus. We can assure you that there are no viruses or trojans in the files. We believe it is a false positive, but since your AV flags it as a trojan and you're worried about it, we won't suggest you to whitelist the game or turn off your AV while playing it. Thank you for your interest in the game anyway!
