Alright! The update has gone live! :D Thank you again for the feedback. Now if anyone beats the game the next time they play again there is a new option to skip the introduction dialogue (which is the longest part) ---
However if you would like the option to skip the dialogue just activate the option by pressing the 'i' key any time before picking up Lauren's call for the first time.
Thanks again! For a slightly more detailed version of this there is a update post on itch.
