I started up Black Pits 2 and am playing it solo. Whenever I finish the first fight, I get the "congratulations... but can you do it again?" line, and then my character disappears, while my POV remains in the pit. I can access my inventory and stats, and the game is not paused. It's similar to trying to select a character who is on a different map, but my POV will not move to my character. I am stuck looking at the screen. If I save there, and load, the first dialogue of the game starts again for a second or so, but then the game crashes.
I tried reloading and doing the first fight several times. I tried killing all enemies with ctrl+y. I tried starting a new game entirely. No matter what I do, I always encounter this bug.
