Hey I just tested out the game a bit and found a bug.
When I hit the resolution button in settings it changes it but I'm not able to change it Back unless I exit windowed mode and go back into windowed mode then it automatically changes it back.

Thanks for mentioning it @NazuhDev! On which platform did you test at?

Windows 10.
