I get the same issue Steely is having, only on Windows. Manual install via the website works fine.

Ah, cool! Yeah, I love Nexus, but wasn't clear on where most of the Caves of Qud mods are located. Like, Rimworld has a sizable portion that are only on Steam, but probably also has a sizable portion that are only on the website. Thanks for the info! Didn't know you can add any new games you wanted to Nexus... that's cool!
I'm also very curious about this, and especially about modding support. :) Is there a website hosting most of the Steam workshop mods, or... is it really a choice between 'most/all the mods' and 'drm free'? I'm really big into mods.
I second the desire to buy it here on itch and support you more, but I'd want the heavy mod support. Does buying it on itch include a Steam key?
Not sure if I'm supposed to reply here, or where, but I played your game-in-progress. :) I like your descriptions, and the way they engage so many senses... the feeling of being cold and wet, etc, made it seem pretty realistic! I'd really like to see more choices, though. This read more like a story than feeling interactive. There were a few choices, but they seemed cosmetic (like the choice between what to eat resulting in the same response); I'm sure choices are hard to set up though, especially in only a week. Overall? I think it was a great start! :)
Edited to note, that I have no twine experience or anything. I just really enjoy interactive fiction. My favorite IF games are often by Adam Cadre, so you might check out his site or his info if you're wanting to play more. I don't think any of them are in Twine, but might be worth checking out, not sure.
I did try to download it without the itch.io launcher. When I do, and unzip it then click the exe, it claims that windows can't access the file, and that I may not have appropriate permissions. However, I'm on the admin account. Then my anti virus (BitDefender) flagged it as potentially malicious and removed the file to Quarantine. I removed it back to the original folder, and was able to run it then. However, it was full-screen with no option to exit or play it windowed. The dot dot dot (...) did nothing when I clicked on it. I could only move within the dungeon. So I hit escape, and it closed the program. I imagine the antivirus may be something po6llnu was also dealing with as maybe that's why we couldn't run it from within itch.io's client? Thanks for your help! Edited to note that it still doesn't work within itch.io client, so maybe that's not why.
Hi there! I'm on Windows 10 and trying to install the game within the itch.io launcher, and I'm having the same issue the other person was having. Sorry such a belated reply, but I've just discovered this game via an old post on PCGamer's Free Game Of The Week. Looks interesting, and hope I get to play it! :)
