Install instructions

Because itch.io puts limits on the number of files in a zip I can't run this through their site. However, GROWBOTICS is a standard Twine game and when downloaded will run in a browser. You will need to unzip the folder before running index.html

Alternatively, the game is available to play online here: http://ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/competition2015/GROWBOTICS/index.html

dosent work

i am sad now

A link to it here might be nice. What's that point of puting it here if it is not easily discoverable. Why should I have to go searching?

Everything needed to play is in the download, minus a web broswer which it's pretty safe to say anyone visiting a website already has... Alternatively a link to play online without having to download is provided above, under install instructions.

Sorry, but I'm puzzled as to what more you're asking for?

Hmm... I see no download link... maybe I am missing something

Ah, seems to be displaying a bit differently through the client. Thanks for letting me know. Should be fixed now.

What platform is this on? Says Not available on Windows.

It's a twine game. Runs through a browser.
