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.
