Sounds like you either downloaded the old version or found a bug. itch.io has been having issues today, so I think you managed to download a much older version. In the recent version, your tutorial period is longer.
Hm, alright! I'll try and redownload and give it another go.
Let me know how it goes! I'm hoping that the latest version fixes a lot of the game balance, but there are still a lot of stuff that is overpowered (on purpose).
