Low frame rate on intel i5 with integrated graphics.

Cool game! I love Cthulhu in games and this was a super unique concept that I hadn't seen before. Pretty sure I beat the game? The game over screen was a little ambiguous haha. I played it on my channel, it's the first game in the video!

Thanks for playing and the video!

Also sorry that was a glitch! You did win but It didn't show you the win screen. I'm unsure why everyone else who won got the win screen. Sorry about that
