IMPORTANT: Google, for some reason, has decided that anything coming from Dropbox is malware, and probably won't let you download it. While we work on a different solution, please could you use a different browser - i.e. not Chrome - to download the latest version of the game. And, Mac users, I'm afraid you're going to have to do the chmod+x thing again, we are not sure why. Sorry about this, please bear with us.
Please click on the "Click here for Download" link below. When you reach the Dropbox page, please click on the folder marked "Developers", and download the appropriate file for your Mac or PC. Your computer should have the appropriate software installed to unzip it; if not there are many freeware and shareware programs available to do just that. Unzip the package, and save it to your desktop, or wherever you prefer to save such things.
Once it has unzipped, click on "EverJane.exe" in the list of files and the game screen will open. The first thing you need to do is to create an account. You do this by entering the e-mail address we have for you (opportunities to change this will be available later), your preferred username and your password. We will be adding a password repeat line and a link to click if you forget it in due course.
Then click "Enter", which will take you to the screen where you may create your character, or add an extra one (you may have up to six for any one account).
Before you play, please click on "known bugs" in the Forums part of this site - I will try to keep this list updated. Some things are going to have to wait while we build the full game – the first stage will be a more stable prototype – but we can fix minor issues “on the fly”, as it were.
We'd really appreciate some feedback from you about the game so far, particularly if you come across any bugs. We've set up some discussion forums - again, please click the link on our web page - and we'd be most grateful if you would come there and tell us, not only if anything's wrong, but what you love about the game, what you hate, what you'd like to see happening, and so on. The more you can tell us at this stage, the better the finished game will be.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy playing the game as much as we do, enough to help us meet our first stretch goal – to hire another programmer. There is a Paypal button on the front page of this site.
