Is it possible to get offline version of Notpron?

Post by fauve » 09-10-2016 19:58

Hello, I’m new here.

I ask if it is possible to get offline version of Notpron. To be honest I made a list of all my favorite games I call Autoludography (french only, sorry) and now I made a script witch install all this games in Linux.
So, For web-based games, I will create a dedicated Firefox profile with link to local files of the game. I need this also because I haven’t Internet all time.

So, is it possible to get an offline archive of Notpron?
Thank you.

Thank you for you fast reaction.

As a (moderate) supporter of free software, open source, and opendata, I am very disappointed of this decision :/
But anyway, I respect your decision and I still want to play Notpron :) but with a little bitterness :/

Thank you o/

Free software and open source doesn't really have much to do with notpron. Open sourcing it would take away all its magic and would pretty much be like publishing a walkthrough.

Same with an offline version. You would need to download hundreds of files, and discovering many of these files is a crucial part of the game. Also it wouldn't even work without a webserver running, for example the user/pass system relies on HTTP basic auth.

It is not just a questionable decision, it's just not possible.
