Hello,

The comic book cutscenes are lovely and, assuming it's not too much trouble, I'd appreciate having the option to see them with the speech bubbles turned off.

(I checked the OGG video files in the Streaming Assets folder and they do not have the speech bubbles hard-encoded into the video, so I assume the speech bubbles are a graphics layer added on top in real-time.)

If you're interested in pursuing this, I guess there's two ways the option could be provided:

1) Turn off the cutscene speech bubbles whenever the Subtitles option is turned off. Currently, even if you turn subtitles off, the cutscenes still have speech bubbles.
2) Give a separate option for Subtitles and for Cutscene Speech Bubbles (or whatever better name you come up with). This would make the Options menu a tad more complex, but it might account for people who like the subtitles but don't like the speech bubbles or vice-versa.

Thanks for your consideration!

NOTE: I am playing the latest GOG version, which is 2.0.1.3 and which includes the October 19th patch.

Hi, Caliburn, thanks for the feedback, and we have listened!

I posed the question to Jane and she has approved to have removal of word balloons be part of the Subtitles Off option.
We'll be looking into implementing that for the next update.

There is no ETA yet but in our next patch, you may just see it as a new feature!
