Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.

If the game freezes your computer on startup, it's likely caused by a problem with auto-installing fonts.
Go into the Data folder, install all of the fonts, then delete the font files and try running the game again.
It's supposed to install them automatically, but this seems to freeze some systems - deleting the fonts will stop it from trying.

If dialogue doesn't show up or uses the wrong font (which may cause cutoff text), manually install the fonts in the Data folder.
