Thanks for your playthrough! It's good for me to see how new players react to the opening. I'm glad things still got communicated to you even though you skipped through the majority of it (stuff like the smoke meaning the opponent would kill you). A lot of your "driving force" forward came from the story bits that you skipped over. I've heard the same thing from people that skipped the cutscene entirely, so I'm looking into ways to make your first big objective clearer. I'll also look into the speech patterns, maybe reduce the amount of times they grunt.
Also, I do have a Twitter! Itch lists it on my profile, but you've made me think that maybe I should put it in the description. Either way, here it is: https://twitter.com/orange_pylon
