Install, launching the game, the intro cut scene, changing screen resolution, selecting a planet, starting a world, tutorial popups, sound.
What does not
The menu text doesn't display correctly, the galaxy at the main menu is invisible which makes it very difficult to find and select planets, upon launching the cell stage the world goes black leaving only menu items.
What was not tested
All stages after the cell stage and everything that relates to them, and the creature creator. Saving was not tested due to the invisibility of the world rendering that impossible; I assume it works however given that the game did not crash after selecting the save option.
