You can download a game at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3vx4cc1rf6l66n9/AADwOKS47yrmNWgGq0Ef8m92a?dl=0https://medium.com/@BR_Robin/a-bitcoin-lightning-network-powered-rpg-penguinshooter-6d36cc34de0c
Is this a cut and paste job? The medium post goes much more into detail!
I wouldn't trust a random dropbox to download from, especially considering they haven't included any file hashes!
Hi, I am the developer of the game.I saw your post a month ago and decided to publish my new release on https://github.com/Donno1994/PenguinShooterYou can verify the PenguinShooter.exe file with the signature provided on the github repository.I provided my PGP key in my twitter profile https://twitter.com/BR_RobinThanks for your help :)
Nice effort. I'm not a fan of using dropbox to distribute software! Isn't there a better option? I guess I'm afraid of malware with stuff like this!
I'd be happy to hear from others that this is clean before I attempt to install.

Thanks! Github is a much better way to go. Are you planning on open sourcing at some point? It would help others to learn - and you can also get other contributing back to you.
Thanks for the donation :)At the moment I am not planning to open source it. i don't want everybody to change the code. At least not now.I understand that some people are afraid of malware. Do you know another way how I can prove that it's not malware?Maybe with this https://www.virustotal.com/ ?In the new release you can connect to your own node which means you can play it for free.I might do a new project in future where I just open a door with LN payments.I could open source that. So everybody could just change it and turn it into a new game

Virustotal also doesn't detect many types of malware - just ones that are known viruses or signatures. I can write a program which does bad things and may not be detected by an antivirus.
Unless you plan on selling the software commercially (like through steam or a publisher), then I don't see any downside to open sourcing it. I recommend you do some research and see if it's right for you. I encourage you to consider it.
If you are worried about others changing it and turning it into a new game, use a license like AGPL. That way they are also obligated to open source their software and you can get the code back. Even if it's on a web server. It's also compatible with other licenses (like GPL, MIT, Apache, etc.)
Thanks for the feedback. I might consider it in future.I guess I have to tidy up my code then. It looks terrible haha
Will try it on my kids PC and I'll let you know :D
As long as your kids get a virus that's ok?
