I played one of the earliest versions when you posted it to Reddit like 7 months ago, I was scrolling through my collection and I saw the press and positive reception you were getting.  Just wanted to drop a comment and say congrats!

Thank you.

I just updated with the final quiz system.  Also since 2.0 there's a hidden object game in the cities and more things along the way.'


It didn't install when I clicked the unzipped .exe game file.  Do I need to download it to a particular folder?

I assume this is the windows version.  I believe the exe is the actual game.

Hi DeepStateGames.

I am a geography teacher and I would like to use your game in class with my students.

As I am French, would it be possible to have your texts on a separate file in order to make a translation into French please?

Thank you.


I am working to find a way to extract the test without the code.

Hi, I like the idea, I like the idea of the game, I have to test it. I eventually I would like to help to do an Spanish version.
