My screen is so dark I can't see the objects

Game downloaded quickly but I can't see anything because the background is so dark. Any way to lighten up the picture? I do not have this problem with any other games.

Try altering the Gamma in Options - The higher the gamma the brighter the screen

I'm pleased that worked for you caput - it's a shame more developers don't use a Gamma option

I wondered what the Gamma option was. Since I am not computer literate, I am hesitant to open things I am not familiar with. I learned something just reading this post.

Thank you.

In an attempt to be technical I hit the Google guru for some techno-babble and came up with:

Gamma correction changes the overall brightness and color saturation of an image as it is displayed on a monitor.
