How hard would it be to make that adjustable without editing the game file?
That way you can play as if the game had difficulty levels. Slow to get used to the controls, then fast to make it harder/more fun.

Hi cellocgw!
Happy birthdip!
If you're bored (and even in you're not) a new Timewaiter, the Advent, has been posting some treeish poems presumably in honour of the upcoming Timversary.
They're scattered over the last few newpages and are well worth reading.
