Can't even play it
Just in case, I'll make this post here too. I downloaded the 64-bit version from the itch.io page. And I can't even play it. I extracted all of the folders and files as per usual, but when I try to launch the game, I get a "There should be a V1.05b_Raft_Win64_Data folder next to the executable" I haven't deleted anything, so why wouldn't that be there? I even tried creating one, but it didn't work. If I can't even successfully download the free version from your indie site, I'm not going to pay for it here.

Does your raft game folder (where the executable is) look something like this (in yours wind32's are replaced by win64 obviously):

If not, you've extracted the archive wrong. Make sure the extractor program maintains the folder structure and does not just dump all the files in one folder.

This is what should be inside the data folder:

My folder does in fact look like the second pic. Also, if it had been extracted wrong, that's some programs fault, not mine because I hit extract all so..

But yes, my folder looks like the second picture. I am unsure how to attach a picture myself, or I'd show you a screenshot

That's probably the problem. Try some other extract command. As I said, if you extract the game correctly your game folder (where the exe file is) should be the way it's in the first picture. The data folder should look like the way it's in second picture.

On 7-zip I just use command extract and it does it correctly.

I use Winrar. The whole folder that its in is called V1.05b_Raft_Win64_Data But there's just that folder. And inside the folder is all the things in the second pic. I'll try it again. But I've never had an issue unzipping folders before so...

Just install it with the itch.io app. Damn.
I don't have the itch.io app. No need to be rude about it.

The easiest fix is just to right click on raft and create shortcut for .exe file
