Hi all, I apologise for my massive absence from any communication on this page whatsoever in the past couple of months. I have been very busily working on a huge update v0.5.0 which is going to bring about multiple big changes along with the addition of heaps of new content and of course many, many fixes. Thanks to the guys in the Discord server and those who have stuck around checking this page for updates. The new update will be landing on Friday the 13th of October (in a few days). Those of you who have participated in the testing phase (v0.1.0 - v0.4.5) will need to update your copy of the game to be able to play. You can do this very easily by just downloading a fresh copy via the links above. The .pak issue is now resolved and the downloaded files should be openable using any unarchiving program capable of opening .zip files on Windows. Also unfortunately I am going to be reluctantly discontinuing the development of the Mac version of the game so I can focus all my time on refining the Windows version first as the majority of downloads since I first released the game have come from Windows users. Unreal Engine also doesn't work particularly well on Mac machines due to poor hardware and general lack of support for a number of features including essential plugins and no steam integration being available currently. Really developing for the Mac just isn't easy right now but I can confirm it will be returning in the not-too-distant future. I will however be releasing backwards support for 32bit Windows machines due to some requests. I would however like to encourage users to upgrade to a 64bit processor as backwards compatibility will not be available forever. Also I genuinely doubt a 32bit processor will be able to run the game at a reasonable frame rate regardless of GPU. However of course you are open to try as I have no 32bit machine to currently test on. Anyway, enough said, the update is arriving very soon and I hope to be updating the itch.io page with dev logs from now onwards to keep you guys updated. Oh before I forget, if you haven't already, you will require a Parallax account to play online in the next update of the game (v0.5.0) so please head on over to the official website Official Website Link and register an account now to get started! With this account you can unbox any loot boxes you find and get some awesome cosmetic designs for existing items in the game including weapons and armour. You can also start earning XP towards levelling up and improving your rating to get a spot on the leaderboard. Lots of new exciting stuff is arriving as of the next update as you can tell which should be fantastic to get into. For more information please visit the games official Trello page --> Trello Link to follow development directly as it happens and of course if you haven't already, consider joining the official Discord server to chat to myself and fellow players --> Discord Link. Thanks for the continued support and I'll see you all in the next update.

Hi there, yes there are some known issues with downloading a complete .zip file of the game as well as extracting it successfully. I'm currently unsure as to why this is happening to everyone but I'm currently looking into it and with some testing should have a working solution in the next few days, thanks for letting me know whats happened on your end.
Hi all, just a quick update for those of you who are not in the Discord server. The game has been updated to v0.4 on both windows and mac OS. You can download via the links above or from the official website. The update has fixed hundreds of bugs/glitches that were found and reported along with the addition of some cool new content! Check it out now if you haven't done so already.
Ok a lot of people seem to be having issues with running the game via the download file. In an attempt to fix this I will be uploading the game to itch.io (both windows and mac versions) which should fix the supposed corrupted/missing files in the download.
Hi, thanks for downloading. The game requires no installation all you need to do is run the .exe file found in the directory assuming you are on windows. Just use WinRAR, 7zip or other preferred archiving program and open the downloaded zip file and navigate to this directory --> TPEv0.3Windows/Parallaxv0.3/WindowsNoEditor/Parallax.exe. If you're using Mac the directory will be TPEv0.3Mac/Parallaxv0.3/MacNoEditor/Parallax.app. It seems that you're also having an issue actually opening the zip file, this could mean an incomplete or corrupted download in which case will require a full re-download pf the game, or the program you are using to open the zip file is not appropriate. If problems persist please don't hesitate to contact me directly and I can offer more assistance.
Hi there, I'm still trying to get the links working. In the meantime if you click on them they should take you to the downloads page on my site. You can then select your preferred OS at the bottom of the page.
Sorry, I just checked the links for the files and they were not up to date! I've fixed and tested them now and they should start downloading. If not, make sure your browser allows pop-ups as itch.io redirects you to my website to get the file which won't happen if you have pop-ups blocked. If all else fails you can go to my website http://www.parallaxgame.com and grab the latest version for both windows and mac. If that doesn't work (which should not happen) join the Discord and I can set you up with a link for the game.
