Could we get a way to download the game? I wanted to play it after seeing the senior show.

Hello! Yes! I am trying to get one of my programmers to upload the build on Itch when he has the chance, thank you so much for your interest :) 

Hello! I am not sure if you have played it already or not, but the game is fully playable and up there if you want to download that zip file! Hope you enjoy and please leave any feedback for "potential" future development. Potential in quotation marks, because we are not sure when we would be able to develop more of this game if we wanted to. Have a good day and we will get back to you if you comment anything else, thank you
