From the previous post above.
So, extracted from my .zip then. Strange. The icon shows up for me, but not for others.

Dusoft, what OS are you running? Can any other Linux users test the icon status? What happens after running the AppImage once or twice - does the icon show up then?

In case it matters, I'm on Linux Mint 21 "Vanessa".
Every AppImage I've ever downloaded has no icon. I just thought that was how all AppImages worked? Even games that are AppImages that I've downloaded from Itch.io, none of them ever have an icon. I'm fairly new to Linux, so I could be wrong though. Personally, I would be fine if Windows and Mac had custom icons, while Linux just had the AppImage without an icon at all. I could live with that.

And I'm currently using PopOS if it matters.

If i understand correctly, appimages doesn't or just was implemented very late, so not every DE or file manager properly supports it (still...)

For example, in nautilus none of appimages show icons for me.

I tried to make a Linux build just now, and sorry to say, the AppImage won't run. I don't mean the icon issue, but the game won't play even after giving it the correct permissions.

Good catch, Sir. I was working on the builder script and overwrote the Linux binaries by accident.
I pushed an update although the builder front-end needs work. Thanks and sorry about the inconvenience!
