I get a bad directory name error or something like that. I did manage to download the demo from the website version of itch but there was no setup or launcher/.exe to run the demo. I even tried a different drive but no difference.


Hey Daza!

Yeah I've been made aware of some issues with the itch app that I'm having trouble figuring out.

If you go to the main itch page (, scroll to the very bottom where it shows the demo downloads, and grab the win64 version there does that work? There also seems to be some weirdness in how itch's butler package manager is creating the zip files where it gives an error on unzip, but ignoring it seems to work for people hit by the bug.

I'm trying to figure out what the problem is, but this very much seems to be on itch's end and I'm unsure of what's going on there.


Hey Daza,

It's also occurred to me that antivirus software will sometimes delete unknown exe files from zips, so check to make sure that hasn't happened either.

Thanks for your reply.  Anti-virus must of been the problem removing the .exe file. Usually it has a popup and asks me or informs me and i have an option to reverse or move file out of quaratine. But i got no notification. I tried to download from your website Win 64 but the download failed- twice. So i downloaded the 32bit version and that downloaded ok and i am able to run it. 

I had another game on Itch that also had issues with the launching, which was an unzipping issue that was solved by downloading game outside of itch.
