This is really wonderful - thank you for making it! A funky and fun to explore (if a bit sad) world with a metric ton to see and do. Your writing is evocative and punchy and delightful to read. There are some strong messages in this without being moralizing (and you have the freedom to behave as atrociously or nicely as you want). Great worldbuilding without any heavy exposition - instead you explore to learn.

Also, this works just fine on linux (and presumably mac) if run via WINE. I tried running the base file with the current linux OHRPPGCE engine, and that doesn't work out well :p
I hope you are happy and selfishly, hope you continue to create!

Thanks for the kind message. I am still making games. My current work-in-progress is a visual novel set in an alien movie studio. The Alien Squatter artist is also involved.

Yo! Don't forget your itch.io fans - I see there's no Linux version here, it's not on sale like on Steam, and you don't get a Steam key with the purchase here (currently). Please consider supporting these here~! In the meantime, I'll pick the game up on Steam.

Thanks for the reminder! I'm working on an update for Alien Squatter that will be out this week, I'll put out a Linux version on itch.io at the same time!  I'll also do a sale for itch.io at some point in the undisclosed future. In any case, thanks for getting the game on Steam. =D I hope you have a groovy time!

I think you forgot to do this.

I've been having some issues with the Mac and Linux versions of the game so they are currently unavailable on Steam and itch. I'm waiting on an update to the game engine.

Oh. All good man.

Love the atmosphere of the game - remixed the trailer!

This is cool, and you're cool for doing this. Rock on!
