Love this game, but will there ever be a version without flash? I fear I won't be able playing it again in near future - don't want to install the outdated and unsecure flash just for one game...

Hello! The game is made in Flash but you don't need to install Flash to play it. In fact, you don't need to install anything to play it. I suspect you're thinking about the browser plugin (which we don't use at all). Cheers.

I bought the game a while back. I have a Win 10 PC, and the game won't start, keeps taking me back to itch home page.  How do I fix it??

Sorry to hear that! I'll take a look at it ASAP

Has it been a year already??

The game does not even start (macOS 10.15.2).

Thank you for reporting the problem! I'll look into it ASAP.

Hellu there! Anybody home?

Sure! Wassup?
