This happened to me when I was playing alone. Whenever I pressed ESC, the menu appeared but I was unable to do anything. I couldn’t close it or click on anything. The game kept running in the background, but I couldn’t control it. Tried it on Paradise and Midori, happened on both. Can do more testing if needed.
It’s been reported a few times already.
Yeah this has been a issue for a while now. And the Devs are aware. I think its fixed in the new patch
I was just playing on it today, and yeah, it’s fixed.
