Post subject:  Suggested Changes for Intro/Menu

(Part 1) Hi there, apologies for the late response, but here's my list of suggested changes for the introduction/Menu:

Suggested Changes/Features for consideration:
- Add Precautions for Exiting, and Going to the Main Menu.
- Disable Timer on Controller Screen.
- Possibly make the default SFX a little quieter
- Enable any keyboard button to be pressed on start screen.

Precautions: This game is good about it, but I can see myself and maybe others trying to go to the settings and accidentally clicking the exit button or main menu since it's right below it.

Controller Screen: I mainly use a keyboard, so when I was first playing I noticed that the controller screen automatically goes to the next screen after a few seconds. So I went in without knowing most of the controls haha. (Also I tried pressing Configure Controls when actually starting, but it didn't seem to work). So I'd suggest considering adding a "Press A" to continue so the player can decide when they're ready to go instead of a timer.

SFX: Might just be me, but I feel the default SFX is initially a little too loud. When using the menu the main theme of the game is quiet at first so it's hard to decipher the game's immediate sound, so the bomb is likely to be the first sound you'd hear if you're proceeding at a quicker pace. It's caught me off guard a few times which is why I'm suggesting considering having the slider at about 70% as the default when beginning a game.

"Press Any Key or Button": I found only the space button works to advance so I just wanted to comment on that. I found it neat that the Esc button shows the promotional video too.

But that's about it for now, I wanna play more of the main game before commenting more on the game play and graphics, but just after 10 minutes of it: I am very... very impressed so far i'll go more in depth in my next post. Hope this was helpful!

That's great! Thank you for the feedback. It's very good to know this about the menu and we're already working on fixing stuff!
New build this week with lots of fixes already :)

Looking forward to your gameplay comments!

Adding a "Press A to continue" on the controls screen would be really great! A game over screen could be nice too. I'm also waiting for the controls settings menu!
