Thank You very much for trying the demo!

Simply unzip the downloaded file and run the FestivalManager_Demo.exe file. If your PC warns you to not run it, please choose "More Info" -> "Run Anyway" (exact wording depends on your language).

Please consider giving me feedback afterwards! That way I can see what game elements are good and what aren't.

Hmm, sounds very strange but I fear there isn't too much I can do about. Maybe try contacting support@itch.io directly. =)

Will do

Help! I clicked "book" on several bands but they don't show up on the stages screen?

Sorry for the late reply. Is there still a problem? =)


Excelent work so far!! :)

Thanks! =)

Would be great if users could add bands and genres in-game. Love the game already.

Thank you for the feedback! I plan to have a band editor in the release version. The demo is very limited and there are a lot of things missing and outdated. =)

FYI, the Itch.io client doesn't detect your zip file for some reason, so the install button doesn't work! Maybe because you didn't flag the zip as Windows compatible?

Thanks for the info, I'll figure it out! =)

Works now 👍🏻

kitch (LInux client) doesnt seem to have this problem. The game can be play without a problem through wine
