Compilable on platforms supported by the [[Factor]] language and with x86 architecture. There is currently a prebuilt binary for Windows. Linux and Mac users should be able to build the game from source.

As of 2014-09, this is a perpetual tinkering project. First version was written in Factor in 2011, then there was a short attempt to restart it in C++11 in 2012. From 2014 on, it's being rewritten from scratch again, this time in Rust.
  
The graphics code includes a small amount of x86 assembly that will need to be rewritten if the game is being ported to a non-x86 platform, such as ARM. If the target platform can be expected to have graphical acceleration, the graphics code should probably be rewritten to use OpenGL.

It is supposed to be simple. You come in at the wake of the host, pick through the ruin they leave, and take what valuables the dregs did not find or comprehend. Only now you're not facing a silent waste, but a crawling army of the things still here. And yet the way back is sealed until you have walked the path to the end.
