For playing this game I would need the Adrift 5.0 runner. However, trying to download that program from the Adrift website causes Windows Defender to halt the download because a virus “Trojan:Win32/Zpevdo.B” has been detected. Is this a known issue? It seems there are zero public reviews of this game listed on the spreadsheet; has anyone else tried to download the runner lately from the Adrift website?
Yup, I believe it’s a known issue - I downloaded and ran no problem.
Ok Mike, thanks for the reply. I’ll try to bypass the problem in some way or another (by allowing the download to continue nevertheless).
Unfortunately, antivirus programs have decided that new versions of ADRIFT always are viruses (false positives), so it takes a couple of years before most antivirus-programs realize that ADRIFT is not a virus. Thus I recommend that you download an earlier version of the Runner, which isn’t regarded as a virus. There will be a warning that the game is made with a newer version of ADRIFT but that isn’t a problem with this version.
The older version of the Runner can be found. e.g. on GameJolt here:
Adrift Runner v22.214.171.124
Or you can play the game online here: Just Another Fairy Tale
Thank you Denk! I will do as you suggested.
