I have to switch my keyboard into QWERTY mode to play it, but I have that set up now so it's easy :-) Unlike playing the game, which for me right now is basically impossible. Which means plenty of room for improvement!
I now recall that the reason it's impossible for me right now is that I can't type in QWERTY at all on an ortholinear/columnar keyboard (and I can't really type in Colemak on a staggered layout keyboard either). I briefly learned it and got good quite quickly, but that was a year ago!
So since I'll likely be switching between Colemak + ortholinear and QWERTY + staggered, I'm not totally sure I'm prepared to put in the work for this game, even though I can see it'd probably get me there in the end. I bet the intermediate phases of learning that way will just have me more confused for a time at the least.
Maybe I should just play it with two keyboards side-by-side!?
OK, I just played it that way, I think it's doable, but of course because of my new weird Colemak layout with F and Q swapped, I'll have to make a new layout on the ortholinear that's QWERTY with F and Q swapped, for typing in Colemak! (don't think about that too hard, it makes sense I promise)
Edit: ah, no that's Q and E "of course" that I needed to swap
