Glad you had fun! AA was definitely a bit of influence here, so I'm happy to hear that shone through.
If you don't mind answering a few questions (which could help get to the bottom of the technical issues):
- Did the game seem like it was chugging, or did performance seem relatively normal other than the long pauses/shakes?
- Maybe weird one, but did the "text speed" slider in settings work for you? Would you say the text was unnaturally fast/slow?
Feel free to respond here or Discord/Reddit; whichever you prefer.
