Don't Move is an experimental puzzle platformer with a focus on ludonarrative dissonance and player investment manipulation. Don't Move starts simply: move left or right. But as you try -- and as you fail -- to move, you unlock more of the game's mechanisms. With each new element comes new challenges and more rewards! Available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.

Hi, sorry it took so long for me to respond to your message! There seems to be some compatibility issues with some versions of Windows. For now, there's a Flash beta of the new update here:

This update will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux once it's ready. Until then, will the Flash version work for you?

I don't think that this game deserves the negative reviews it has been receiving, but it does prove that this game certainly is an acquired taste. Don't Move is a game about progression, but there are no real objectives, tasks, storylines or anything similar because it just isn't that kind of game. While it may come off as too simple and repetitive (which it very well is) at first, it has a compelling ability to keep pulling you back in to see what happens after you have reached the next stage of…
