i absolutly love this game, i heard about it from joel and he didnt fail me, but i have one problem with my game, most of the time textures wont load and instead its just bright colourful lights, i dont know if you can fix it or not but im just pointing it out :)

Try reducing the game quality in the launcher, and turn off some options in the game.

DUDE! Joel said he fully supports this game, said you can use any song of his, and even offered to write a custom soundtrack for you! Awesome work man!

Thanks! I've been neglecting this game for quite a while now, I guess it's time to get back to it.
