Difficulty adjustments, content drop, bug fixes!

I added a few hints which you can use to get through the game faster as well as made it harder to insert the USB stick into the laptop. I also fixed a bug there which caused one of the sounds to never play, therefore you could never hear it.

I also added a new "Half Life" icon on the Win XD screen so definetely check it out. It is not fully finished yet as it will have its own dedicated frame later on but its just a window as of now.

I have also fixed a few other sound bugs and fixed the sound slider bug.

Thanks to everyone who supported our game and Id like to remind you that if we get more reviews, we might be able to add trading cards sooner.

Thats all I needed to say, thank you for reading this

Bug Fixes, no more opening links (except Discord) + More languages coming!

I integrated a third video in the game so instead of opening a website the game itself will play the vid.
I also fixed two bugs in both the czech and the worldwide version.

I would also happily announce support for German, Dutch, Serbian, Polish, Russian, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese and Arabian languages - this might take a while though.
