At least you can reach all of them with one hand in an understandable layout. If you think that "tHe CoNtRoLs ArE cRaP" then do one of the following:

Deal with it

Dont play this game

Realize you can edit controls

Could you please tell me how to edit controls

when you start the game (where you select graphics and stuff) go to input and then you can change them

I can't open the game, it says: "You can not run this application on your computer". Does anyone know how can I fix this?

Btw I have a windows pc (and downloaded that version).

Same, I dont know why, i unziped it and I am using windows 10 

mabey you need unity

For some reason I can't unzip the file. Can someone tell me how to do it? BTW I downloaded the Windows version

maybe restart your pc? or reinstall winrar


I restarted my pc and it still doesn't work. What's winrar?

when you try to open it click 'export the files' or something like it.

If you did that go in to the second fairnsquare folder and if you fucked up alot like me click the one that is just 'fairnsquare'.

It should work if you download WinRar to unzip it.

when I was getting mine I did not unzip it

but I did some random things it worked for me

when you try and open it export the files

If you did that go in to the second fairnsquare folder and if you fucked up alot like me click the one that is just 'fairnsquare'

for .zip files just open it like a normal file and drag the contents somewhere else


good game bruh

This is my score (100% did not pop the DLL into dnSpy Kappa)

and ofc i can not unzip the file

(2 edits)

You need to unzip it, and the double click the "fairnsquare.exe" file

(1 edit)

Hey don't know why this happens but I play on I downloaded the Linux one and tried to launch it but it doesn't launch.It doesn't run anything at all after I launch it so can you help me please?Really want to play the game

try unziping it

my highest is 10k and i got there with 10 hp and a sword so far from beating dani

i am very peaky with my games but idfk but this game made me want to play it and it might helped that i am also a game developer so i know how hard is to make a video game if you are a beginner at least. i like it 10/10

May I review this game for twitch/youtube?


Thanks so much, ill link it here when I am done!

add a inventory and being able to switch between multiple guns (they would have a cool down depending on fire rate)

also make sure the AIs are a bit smarter and so they don't fall in the lava

health on kills when you kill a person you can a chance of (1,2,3 or whatever) extra health

being able to pause and going into the shop for another gun


awsome game, but can you make an option so that I could use W as a jump button, thanks

It So cooI, u can made it with just 48 hour... and i pretty like the music :3
i hope i can make one like this

This is awesome!

oof no love for linux


Just uplaoded a Linux build, let me know if it works!

it does not work when i open it, it says the file "fairnsquare.x86" has no known programs associated with it.

try using a virtual machine to find the problems, I'm using linux mint try it with Ubuntu first

there is a new build for linux out now, if it does not work just use wine

if you had a bluescreen and were still able to make something like this you are just something else better than a human

Got a bluescreen when downloading the file


Still looks fun though


Hahah for real? Oh boi the irony in that :D


I enjoyed the game as much as your video, Keep up the great work!

UW displays support please


controller support... boom

its so cool u can play if u don't have anything to do not boring good sound effects mostly the background music.
