Install instructions

Installing and running through the itch.io app is recommended.

However, if you would prefer to download and run the game yourself, you may need to perform one of the following steps.

On Windows, when you run the .exe file you may get an error message saying it is an unrecognized app and was prevented from starting.  Click "more info" and then "Run anyway."

On Linux, you may need to manually set the execute bit of the .x86_64 file (the main executable).

On MacOS, you will get an error  saying that the app "is damaged and can’t be opened" when you try to run it.  This is because the app isn't signed.  To fix this, open a terminal and navigate (e.g. cd /path/to/zip/file) to the place where you unpacked the zip file.  Then run the following command: xattr -cr "Andrew's Lunar Excavator.app" - after that you should be able to run the app.

Had fun playing it, but it took me some time to figure out you can grab the lifts. Really cool puzzle game :)
