choco upgrade openrct2 -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"

OpenRCT2 is an open-source re-implementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (RCT2), expanding the game with new features, fixing bugs and raising game limits. The gameplay revolves around building and maintaining an amusement park containing attractions, shops and facilities. The player must try to make a profit and maintain a good park reputation whilst keeping the guests happy. OpenRCT2 allows for both scenario and sandbox play. Scenarios require the player to complete a certain objective in a set time limit whilst sandbox allows the player to build a more flexible park with optionally no restrictions or finance.

An installation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is required in order to play OpenRCT2. RCT2, with expansions, is cheap nowadays and can be bought from G2A, GOG and Steam. Alternatively, you can play a limited edition by installing the free Mini-Game.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
