I am impressed.
A suggestion: Think of someone unfamiliar or not so familiar with 
Scribus, or even me, somewhat more advanced. In the absence of a 
soundtrack (not essential, in my view), you need to think about this 
being a silent movie, which requires some word frames to say what's 
coming next, or some overlays which say what is going on. As it is, you 
see this cursor going around the screen, seeing what's happening, but 
not what you're planning to do. Are these editable?
Perhaps we can come up with an accompanying text on the Wiki that is 
something like a libretto for this.
I have to say it's fascinating to watch, but a bit like watching someone 
else play a video game.
Good work.
