You can download 1508 as a self-extracting archive (300mb, 714mb decompressed) directly from icannotfly.net.
If you’d prefer, there are also .torrent and magnet downloads available (both 714mb, uncompressed). This is only experimental at this point and isn’t guaranteed to be available in the future.
If you find any bugs, please let me know.
To start the game, extract the contents of the archive and run PlayGame-1080p.bat. You can edit this file if you’d like to change the resolution to better match your screen.
