The start up screen is stunning!

There is an issue with the game res so people with small monitors can't play the game or read all the instructions.

I absolutely loved the start of this - seeing the dual text against a beautiful backdrop like that was powerful. However, I think there may be a bug with webgl. The text has gotten slower and slower and now each letter takes one second to print. The dragging also is too laggy to do.

Memory sink or some forgotten loop running in the background?
