Detailed instruction to run game on MacOs Catalina (10.15.5)

Running on Catalina 10.15.5 i had to do a few things differently than others to get the game to run, first i installed the game and the zip file was automatically moved to the trash bin. I removed the zip file from the trash and right clicked the file, using the unarchiver app to extract the game (the unarchiver is free on the app store). Then a file labelled "wohgame" popped up on the desktop which i then right clicked and selected the "show package contents" option and opened the folder labelled "MacOs" where the unix executable was hiding, double clicking that to run the game. If you just double click the "wohgame" file on the desktop you will get a message saying that the game cannot be found OR that you can't open it because finder cant scan for malicious software. Hope this helps anyone who was having a similar issue! Orrr i'm inept and it took me a little longer than most to figure it out lol. 

When I open it as described by you I simply get a monsters text file of code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm on Big Sur (11.3), but I think the process is the same—I've had to do this on an older MacBook as well:

Try to open the game by double-clicking on its icon, then close out of the ensuing "Apple can't check app for malicious software" popup warning. Now open Preferences > Security & Privacy > "General" tab. (And unlock the panel first, of course, if your Mac is password-protected.)

At the bottom of this preferences screen, under "Allow apps downloaded from," there's a note that your computer is currently blocking wohgame. Next to it is a button that says "Open Anyway." I don't think you have to do this every time, but maybe you do? Best of luck.

good tips thank you!  I'll chime in with another one: usually (95% of the time) to get around this you can right click on the file and click open.  this brings up a different popup which has an open anyway button built into it.  good luck to everyone getting games working on the latest macs!
