On the root of the Pikmin disc are a few files for a Windows executable, where you can run the game on a PC. It comes filled with a bunch of debugging features, and best of all, it's possible to have it run on any modern machine!
By default, most things are invisible and behave a bit wrong. You have to access the in-game debug menu and enable "Game-Mode" in order to get stuff to show mostly right. Even still, only one Pikmin will really appear correctly, while the rest will just randomly flicker on the ground.
On the menus, you can navigate around just like in the actual game, but you can also pull out some extra debugging menus to access more options, with Tab. In-game, you have the regular game controls, except quite a few things are wonky (e.g. Olimar's health always appears as 0). You also get a lot of debugging features in-game by pressing the Z key. No audio plays at any point in the game.
