Hi! Thanks for playing and thanks for the bug report! I'm sorry you're having trouble. The screen should fade into a short cutscene, then transition back.
To clarify, is this the shrine/altar on top of the large tree stump? Are you playing the jam version, or 1.0.1.?
Yes, it happened at the tree stump shrine. I think I was playing the latest version. On second playthrough I managed to get through the whole game.
I'm glad you could get through it the second time. Thanks for sticking with it!
And thank you for the information! I already took a look, couldn't find the cause for the bug yet, but I'll keep looking :)
