For clarity's sake, I had the same issue that Urien did. I hit the "run" instead of "download" button and my computer simply refused to work with it because it was so unfamiliar to it. Downloading and then installing allows you to actually run the program.
That's a possible explanation. There's a good amount of speculation that something else is afoot, especially considering a few...oddities.
In the opening character creation, you're asked to name the character and creator. Use Undertale names and the narrator will usually make a comment about coincidence...unless you use the name Gaster. If you name the character Gaster, the game resets. If you name the creator Gaster, it closes entirely.
There's a bunker south of town with what turns out to be the same sound used for Gaster's Entry 17, albeit slowed down to 20% of its speed. Coincidentally, if you edit your map location to 17, you end up right at the bunker.
There's a bonus boss in the game who purportedly met a mysterious individual and became convinced that the world was nothing more than a game. Notably, when Seam is explaining this to you, he uses the phrase "Darker, yet darker", which has strong associations with Gaster.
As you might imagine, there's some speculation that Gaster might actually end up playing a role in later chapters, and consequentially that this alternate universe may be artificial in nature.
And just for a change of pace, there's the ending which has implications that cannot really be explained within the context of DeltaRune, and of course it ends telling you that this is only Chapter 1 of the story.
Mind you, it's entirely possible that this is just an "elseworld"-esque alternate universe, where everything is tweaked slightly, but there's enough material to fuel speculation that something funny is going on behind the scenes.
