Thanks, Erin! I am definitely looking forward to make this a complete, polished game. I suppose what felt awkward to you were the jokes about modern-day stuff? (taxes, for example). If so, I definitely can understand why you would feel it's forced, maybe the type of humour is not everyone's liking (and that's completely fine!). I am happy to have made you laugh with the other silly elements, though.
I appreciate your input dearly :).
