Can't Download

Okay, it seems that I am no longer able to download the game. Every time I try, I get a weird page full of weird text.

1) Have you tried downloading straight from the GitHUB and running it through an interpreter like Inform 7 or Gargoyle?

2) Have you tried downloading the "glorb" file from http://blog.flexiblesurvival.com/p/play ... vival.html by hitting "Save As" on the "Story File" link?

1. I don't know what that is.


2. Yes, that gives me the same weird text.

You should get a file called "Flexible Survival.gblorb" being around 30 Mb. Just tested the download, works fine for me.
Where do you get the "weird text"? Are you trying to open it with an editor?
You should have Gargoyle or any other client installed and open the story file (the gblorb) with it. Then again: You said that it worked before, so you seem to know what to do with it...
Did you try to download it from a different computer?

Have you tried downloading it through a different web browser?
A big monster like that on such a pointed roof... You may ask 'how does it stay up there, if it's so difficult?'

That, I can tell you in one word: tentacles!

That worked, thank you. I would still like to know why I can't do it on the browser that I used to do it on.

Sounds like it's a compatibility issue. What browser were you getting the problem with?
