Hi there Slitcher!
Thank you for playing :)
I see, some people love the fact that changing modes triggers a small talk and needs coordination. Some people hate it. haha. From a design point of view I can say that we are trying to experiment with cooperative mechanics, and that one aims in the right direction. But we are experimenting and feedback like yours is useful so we can decide later on if we will keep it or not. Thank you a lot!
