The download is missing.

Hi BearerOfHonesty, the download seems to work on my end both signed in and not... if you could let me know what happens when you click download it woud be a big help. I'm very sorry you couldn't download it, and thank you for letting me know!


Ah, I just opened the page in a browser and it does show up there. Before I was using the Itch.io client where the game doesn't have an install button and the download link isn't shown on the page through that.
