Install instructions

Download the appropriate archive for your platform and extract it.

Windows users: Drag and drop atw.slg onto SLUDGEEngine.exe, or double click SLUDGEEngine.exe and select atw.slg from the file browser.

Linux users: If you want to run the game without the bundled libraries, be sure to set the SLUDGE_DATADIR environment variable to point to the bin/shaders folder. This environment variable is not a part of vanilla SLUDGE. A diff of source changes can be found in the sludge/source_changes folder.

If you'd like to run the game using your own copy of the SLUDGE engine, you can find the game data file at data/robins_rescue.slg
