I think the issue is with the UI scaling in the current version. Go to your users/(your account)/appdata/locallow/embark/embark/config folder and delete the optionsinfo.xml file inside. Sorry!
That did it, thank you! I also reinstalled via the Itch app. However, reinstalling wasn't enough by itself, I had to delete the Options xml to get the Options button to work. Got a new world to load properly.
