When I download the windows build it says that the file format is broken?
Itinerant Mind Colony
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Minimalist side-scrolling shooter where you can't shoot. Instead, get near other ships to take control of them.
- arrows keys to move
In slightly more detail:
You are an out-of-place mind colony.
Get near white squares to infect them. When your shrinking & expanding circle overlaps them, they'll change appearance -- this means they're infected. Infected ships can infect others.
You control all infected squares simultaneously with the arrow keys.
Squares are mutually destroyed when they collide.
Squares are also destroyed from getting shot too much.
If you bring an infected square too close to the edge of the screen, the infection will pass (and you will lose control of that square)
To beat each level, simply control a certain number of squares.
For Mini-LD #69 - Colonization

How odd! The majority of downloads have been for Windows, and this is the first I've heard of a problem. Time is treacherously scant for the foreseeable future, but I'll investigate at the next opportunity. Thanks for reporting the problem!
(And also: thanks for all your work in the jam scene!)
Odd indeed! I had a Windows friend check the download, and it seems to have worked for him (he hadn't played before, so definitely a fresh install). Maybe there was a momentary burp in itch.io service? I don't think I've heard of any issues with my Windows builds before.
At any rate, I did a fresh export & zip just in case. Hopefully this one is trouble-free!
