  3. Even in death (falling down into a black abyss) all games are one! Unnerving, there was no escape from you, myself, and everything just came back to everything, circling, endless recursion, beginning, end, transportation, doing just for doing, stress, promise of more, lack of capacity of movement, some feeling of autonomy in spite of meaninglessness…

    It could just be a cheeky joke, but somehow feels more like a defiant announcement that you will never package your work for the consumer’s ease, or your own financial gain. I admire the purity of your idealism, in which case.

    The interface is really nice btw.

    I’m using a mac (OS 10.6) and whenever I download one of your standalone games, my computer automatically tries to expand it, and the built-in “archive utility” hangs indefinitely. Is this intentional? Because if so, the message I’m getting from it is something like “haha, you just downloaded a trojan. Maybe you should be more careful.”

    If I run unzip from the command line, it works correctly and the game appears to run just fine.

  8. That’s pretty weird. It’s not intentional.

    This happens for all zip files you’ve tried downloading (that is to say, for several different games)? Hmm. I usually just tell osx to compress the zip files in the standard way.

    I tried downloading them on both safari and firefox and unzipping and they work fine.

    Googling, I notice pages like this:

    Could that be your problem?

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’m no longer having the problem with any zip files, including yours, so it seems it was just a coincidence. I actually came back to this page to apologize for my earlier post, which later on struck me as unnecessarily nasty (even if the problem had been intentional). I was surprised to see such a helpful response. You seem like a real class act!

    Also, having spent a little bit longer exploring the world of indie and experimental games, I’ve realized that it’s pretty rare for a creator to go to the trouble of packaging their games for Mac OS as well as Windows. Thanks for doing that!

    Can’t tell if this is intentional or not.

  12. Not intentional at all. Could you tell me what your operating system is? (if you’re on windows, could you check if any crash report files were left in the executable directory or its subdirectories?)

    Some, if not all, of these old games ask me to install the unity webplayer plugin, which i already have. Newer games don’t ask me this! Could it be that unity doesn’t recognize these games anymore because of some update or some stuff like that?

  14. There are different versions of the unity webplayer (that are not mutually compatible – though installing one won’t remove the other – they can coexist peacefully) – have you tried installing the version that it prompts you to install?

    (woo! mi first post)

    I’ve been a good time playing the games of stephen, I really love them (and they confuse me). them are confusing, mysterious, ironic, satirical and sometimes creepy, but certainly one that most shocked me was this (Increpare arcade)
    whenever I show my friends “who is stephen Lavelle” i start playing the “Increpare arcade” … everyone gets confused and even frightened
    so … thanks stephen! your works are awesome :D
