Heyo! Thanks so much, really glad you enjoyed it!
Yeah, those blank cutscenes are a bug that appears specifically on the Evercade version. You're more likely to run into it if you use savestates instead of in-game saves. Apparently some Evercade players ended up forced to use savestates which is kind of unfortunate given this.
There should soon be an Evercade firmware update which updates the game to V1.2 where the issue is fixed. Any in-game save will carry over (but savestates won't, so be careful!)
Tip: one cassettedisk is given to you for delivering all oranges!
