Brad (UI) here.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble! The load times can be long, it takes a while to load levels on my laptop (although my laptop isn't great to begin with, you shouldn't be having that much trouble with a $2000 PC). However, the game not loading at all is strange, we didn't run into anything like that during playtesting. My only advice would be to let the game load a little longer. Unfortunately, any further work is unlikely because Soniscape was a school project, and the fellowship has been broken with some group members graduating/likely moving/etc. Sorry I can't be of any real help, but thanks for giving the game a shot regardless.
