Version of Axu: Latest version (0.5.2)
I watched Splattercat play this game and really wanted to give it a try, but the moment that I pressed "new game" the game first displayed the proper screen for a few frames (less than 1/10th of a second) before cutting to a black screen.

Sorry for the abysmally late reply, Itch.io does not do a good job of notifying you about stuff. It's mostly how the background doesn't fade but sticks around leaving you confused about what is real and what is not. I don't usually have a problem with those kinds of things but this just really bothered me in an otherwhise great game.
I've been having a similar problem as well. Instead of the [LOADING...] banner being endless, it appears for a split second before the entire screen goes black, hard-locking the game. I do not have any previous save data, I downloaded the newest version yesterday.
