@Bass has solved this puzzle. Although, they didn't quite hit on the way I had intended for it to be solved, but what matters is they arrived at the correct solution.
See below for how I intended for this puzzle to be solved, I feel this is where the novelty in it lies:
This seems to be a mixture of l337sp34k and a substitution cipher, with several possible ciphertext substitutions for the plaintext letters.
The first couple of words can just about be read as they are, but the text is a bit short for solving the substitutions by brute force: the last two words don't help as much as usual, because they just random dictionary ...
