AH! I just realised something. I got the current itch.io bundle and found Tape. I saw the name Aeriform and was like “Huh, hold on… I’ve heard this name before!”. So I went on your profile and found Dispatch just neatly sitting there on the shelf. I saw the game while browsing SPLORE randomly. Anyways, as for the game, it’s incredible. Gives me Duskers vibes.

Nice aesthetics but it is incredibly difficult to read. After I get attacked and begin to bleed out, it takes me approximately half the bleed out timer to read the message on the screen. After that, I pretty much have to panic run through rooms because there's no time for me to read/process any of the messages... I feel like if your game is supposed to be primarily text based, you shouldn't make it this difficult for players to visually parse the info on the screen.
I'll keep it on my watch list for now but in its current state it is very frustrating to play. Granted, I'm playing this on the mac version since the browser version doesn't work for me so maybe your previous adjustments weren't applied to the mac version?
Also agree that the text is extremely difficult to read, would like to play it and will save it in my play later collection, but it is too difficult to read. Hopefully with an update if possible where the font could be changed I'd be able to play in the future.
yea the text is really hard to read and i had to start pressing random buttons until it began
So interested in this and really wishing I could play it but the font you chose for the text makes it incredibly hard to read. Not sure if anyone else had commented on this aspect but it is a major detractor for a player trying to feel immersed in the world you've crafted here. Want to play it so bad, though :-) The little I was able to play immediately told me I would be in for a great atmospheric experience.
Keep it up, dev ;)
