bare bones but interesting setting and sounds

kudos

Did an impressions video of your game!

This would likely be quite interesting if finding the players and playing the music was able to tell at least some kind of story. Nothing of the music presented here is able to catch my ears for more than a few seconds - and I usually dig all kinds of music. 

doesn't provide an option to lower resolution despite horrendous framerate

thanks for the heads up! just added config dialog to v1.0.2.
