RE: Safe or unsafe
You can check the url using SiteAdvisor site.  You can also do a google search on the file name and the word malware, virus, or spyware.  For example, "stickfigure spyware."  You can also submit the downloaded file to VirusTotal to see if any of the vendors are detecting it.

Hope this helps.

RE: Safe or unsafe
I just downloaded the program because i was curious (a). It's safe. After DL i scanned and found... nothing :P. It makes lots of fun :cheesy:. You have to figure out some things but that takes 15-30 min. And after that it's your imagination's turn ;).

That makes me think of the XiaoXiao movies :grin:.
