Steps to reproduce:
1. Play layout 'Town'
Of the 4 characters on the screen, 3 of them will be black boxes. If you delete more objects from the project, this will gradually stop happening (try deleting say 3 objects and one image will go back to normal. Try deleting 20 and all will be normal).
Another method that worked for a bit was to relocate the affected objects to another object type folder. However, after doing this many times, the problem starts to occur again.
*EDIT: an additional note is that when this issue occurs, it also prevented the Clay.io plugin connecting (the Clay.io plugin is not included in the posted .capx). Not sure if that helps but thought I would mention it.
The characters should appear normally.
