Interesting game. I liked it a lot. You gave me some inspirations for my own interactive fiction.
However, the Linux version doesn't work, so I had to use Wine to get this thing working. Could you look over it?
I'm having some trouble with the Linux build, but I'm working on it. I'll reply to you here when it's done.
Also, good luck on your own project.
The Linux version is working now.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I will try.
EDIT: And it's still not working. How come it didn't export to x86_64?
Unfortunately, this isn't possible with Gamemaker Studio.
But I figured out the problem. You need some libraries for the game works. I have included in the .zip file a text file explaining the circumstance and listing the libraries needed and how to install them.
I know that it's not ideal, but it's what I can do.
