I have realized that the audio mix in the first few episodes is pretty shocking. Unwatchable I think is safe to say. The only upside is by the time I figured out it was bad, I was also over the initial learning of the game and from here on, the audio will be better and I will also be better at the game.
I have decided to bunch these together as I fixed the problem mid-way through episode 4 but episode 5 is where things is a good balance between where the puzzles get harder and I get better at the game. Watch the older episodes at your own frustration.
