Martian Memorandum Responses Not Showing

Game installs and loads fine - however whenever I get to character it seems to freeze / crash after their opening line.

The Response choices are showing along the bottom of the screen only - not in the middle (per You Tube clips) and I cannot select them or get past this

I even attempted to play the browser version and the exact same thing happens??

Any ideas?
sorry I don't play the old ones so I cannot help you. If this is a gog version maybe try there.
