Found an actual windows machine and updated the instructions :) A little bit more complicated than Linux...

This was really fun to play and a good use of the most common words in the English language. Admittedly we had to switch to easy for the last three levels and even then it took a bit to figure out the musical letter. Good riddles :)
Oh, that's a shame. I don't think I can change what platforms it is compatible with anymore, but I added a note that it is only tested on Mac and Linux. Many thanks for getting back to us and giving it several tries.
The best was the arrows, since the music fit it quite well. In the mario style game, the timing of the jumps and the walking posture of the stickfigure made it feel like moving in a liquid slightly denser than air.
Thanks for letting us know! Looks like we still have a lot to learn on Python packaging... I have tried a couple of things, and hopefully one of the below gets you further. I would be grateful for a feedback if any of this helped/where the explanations are unclear or don't work:
Linux/Mac: Once you have downloaded the file from itch, open a terminal, go into the directory where the file lies (probably [type + hit enter:] cd ~/Downloads ). Then [type + hit enter:] pip install --user xkcdLand.zip If that does not work, unzip it first, then go into the newly created directory and [type + hit enter:] pip install .
It should now play after [type + hit enter:] xkcdland
If it does not, try: [type+hit enter:] cd ~/.local/bin [type+hit enter:] ./xkcdland
Windows: Apologies, flying a bit blind on this one, since we don't have a Windows machine to test on. Probably the best way forwards is to install cygwin and then using the linux terminal provided through cygwin.
Some alternative ideas:
Open a console by typing 'cmd' in the Windows search in the Start menu, and run the cmd program.
Check that python is installed by seeing if it starts on [type+hit enter:] python
If python is installed, go to the directory where the game was saved to, then [type + hit enter:] pip install --user xkcdLand.zip If that does not work, unzip it first, then go into the newly created directory and [type + hit enter:] pip install .
Now you should be able to run the executable called xkcdland.
