Note: This game was developed and built using the Unity game engine. As this application was built, packaged, and uploaded from a Windows PC, you may need to do the following to run this application in MacOS and possibly Linux:

On MacOS:
change directory to the unzipped binary folder cd <PATH_TO_APP>/
run the following: chmod -R 777

This should mark the file as an executable application file and allow you to play. Hopefully, this note solves any issues.
