Came out in 2006 - so 7 years old. Should run for years yet but expect it to creak a bit for high graphics demands.

Sounds very much like a hardware problem that's not going to get any better.

Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.

// Replaces with spaces the braces in cases where braces in places cause stasis
