Full release notes
A few comments
Setup instructionsIf you have Python (2.4 or higher) and PyGame 1.8 installed, you should be good to go. I've tested crashRun on both MacOS X and Windows and I hope it'll run on Linux, too.
If you need Python, you can download it from: http://python.org/download/
And PyGame is available here: http://pygame.org/download.shtml
** Vista users note: when I tried the python installer on a Vista machine, the installer didn't modify the PATH to include Python (it appeared to on XP). You can set this variable by right-clicking My Computer in the Start menu, selecting Properties, Advanced, and then pressing the Environment Variables button. You'll need to append ";C:\Python25\" to the end of the PATH variable.
I intend, once crashRun is closer to a 1.0 release, to look for alternatives that wouldn't require users to have Python and PyGame preinstalled (and there are a number: Py2Exe, Py2App, or providing interfaces not built in PyGame) but for the immediate future I'm more interested in working on gameplay improvements.
Once you are setup with Python and PyGame, all you should need to do is execute crashRun.py.
This can be done from the commandline:
And depending on how your system is configured, you may be able to simply double-click on crashRun.py

Finally, I've bundled a font with crashRun, to avoid having to worry about which fonts users had installed on their systems. This is Bistream Vera Sans Mono and comes from the Gnome project (see http://www.gnome.org/fonts/).
If you do ending working on the source code for crashRun, I'd love to hear about it!
