When I scan the program with my virus scanner, it says that the game has a trojan in it! Why is that, is it really a virus?

I doubt that there's a virus. Can you verify that you got it from a good location?

It is known that AVG scans MMF games and says that they're a virus. Can you tell us what virusscanner you have?

avast! has done this before, with Game Maker games as well as MMF games, and it also thinks .knytt.bin files are decompression bombs. :/ (Of course, this is all inconsistent. Most knyttbins avast! is fine with, and most MMF games, too.)

I use an antivirus program called Clamwin free antivirus, and I got the file from this very site.

Then it must be a false positive.
