If you still need help with text display, I tried to gather some information, but it is really not much. You can see it in the response to your question.
File "/tmp/twisted_life-0.5/lib/twisted_life_screen.py", line 137, in update
self.image = self.font.render(msg, 0, self.color)
pygame.error: SDL_ttf render failed
Interesting game indeed.
However, two minor caveats:
The readme.txt talks about "white life forms" you need to avoid, but the enemy is actually black. Gave me quite a scare upon the first start.
I am running the game on Windows XP SP2, Python 2.5.1, PyGame (don't know the version number, but installed just a few days ago :) ), and the text at the bottom is not cleaned up! It is constantly being overwritten without removing the old one, making it unreadable.
