So, Linux version coming later? Escape.exe crashes :(

I used py2exe to convert these from their original python files, I'll see if it supports Linux as well. Either way I'm hoping to port it to Linux/Mac asap :)

Wouldn't start. The console says:

"libpng warning: Malformed iTXt chunk
Fatal Python error: (pygame parachute) Segmentation Fault

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information."

Hey summaky, it's most-likely due to a missing dll, I went through and added any dll's which could be critical. Are you running linux?

Looks fun, but can't get it to run on OSX.

Decently done, but controls take ages to get used to for isometric viewpoint. Levels get repetitive quick, lacks more mechanics/variety. Power pills also always happen to be right on the way to the exit and not a challenge to get. Besides score, not much motivation to get all the pills. I like the "heads" as characters. Music for a "zombie" game could have been a little heavier, but it's still good.

Seems to almost work on linux if I just download both source and windows asset (I already have pygame). I had to comment out
import pygame._view
but then soon after the level begins, I get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "escape.py", line 733, in <module>
zombie.update(diff)
File "escape.py", line 56, in update
possibleTiles = self.getAvailableDirections()
File "escape.py", line 136, in getAvailableDirections
if getEntityAt(self.xTile, yCheck) != "#" and getEntityAt(self.xTile, yCheck) != "!" and getEntityAt(self.xTile, yCheck) != "*" and getEntityAt(self.xTile, yCheck) != "@" and getEntityAt(self.xTile, yCheck) != "X":
File "escape.py", line 367, in getEntityAt
return level[tileY][tileX]
IndexError: list index out of range

(which doesn't seem to be pygame related to me.)

Hope this helps you port.

Hey foobaz thanks for letting me know, hmm, seems like it can't find the level file, I'll have to take a look.

I'm definitely a little weary of both hipster mockery and zombie games at this point, but apart from the extremely vanilla maze-navigation gameplay this is very well done!

Love the story-nuggets. The maze-navigation, combined with the zombies is also quite well done.

This is the first game so far I've played through all the way. So, cheers! You must have done something right. :) Nice little puzzle system and a charming setup.
