Is there anywhere else I can install Iridium RIsing apart form the Pi Store? I have wanted to play it for ages but I cant. Thank you :)

The PiStore is dead. You'll have to forget running Iridium Rising it doesn't exist any longer.

Yes, the PiStore is dead, but that doesn't mean there is no hope of getting Iridium Rising. You could try contacting RD Developments (https://store.raspberrypi.com/developers/rddev) or alternatively you could try to get in contact with one of the three developers (as listed in the link) and see if they could host the game somewhere else.

No it's not "Okay" because you should never have been lead down this cul-de-sac in the first place. The PiStore died in January 2015 and folks are still trying to access that sad and dead place. That really annoys me because it should have been torn out of the net when it died.

http://indiecity.com expires on July 06, 2016, that should help make it die.
http://store.raspberrypi.com should have a huge notice "THIS WEBSITE IS DEAD" on it. Or if that isn't possible a re-direct to http://raspberrypi.org to a notice that also says "The PiStore is dead" and not written in black letters on a black background.
