Install instructions

To run on Windows, download the zip file. Unzip somewhere convenient. Go into the "castle_DATE_TIME" directory and click on the "castle_DATE_TIME.exe" to start the game. You should not need anything extra installed to use this game.

To use on other architectures (that I don't have access to...), download castle_src_20180429_2310.zip and the appropriate Dr. Racket for your machine. Load the %castle.rkt from the src directory into the editor and hit "Run"! If everything is as cross-platform as they claim, you should be off to the races -- there are no dependencies aside from Dr. Racket itself. I'm using Dr. Racket 6.12. Thanks to @borodust for mentioning this.
